There are many occasions where the use of dry ice and cold storage are beneficial. Businesses need to store food products in controlled temperatures, storage of medications and temperature-controlled storage of certain types of beverages are a few of the uses for a cold storage system.
Portable containers are an affordable solution for cold storage. There are many dry ice benefits such as keeping temperatures below freezing or filling empty space in a cold storage container. Additional dry ice benefits include having the ice available when you need to ship small packages that require the temperature to remain steady for your customers. Air conditioning can also be installed into these units. This is perfect if you need a steady temperature that is not below the freezing mark.
A cold storage container can be placed anywhere on a property as long as the ground is level. They are easy to move when necessary. Portable shipping containers can also be used to transport cold goods and dry ice to areas in need. Disaster zones or areas suffering from extreme temperatures benefit immensely.
Why Do Shipping Containers Make Good Cold Storage Units?
One of the main reasons that shipping containers make such good cold storage units is because of how well they seal. The containers were originally designed to move merchandise across the globe on a ship. Ships are exposed to wind, water, and all kinds of weather conditions. Because of this, containers have been constructed to seal tightly. This ensures water and air cannot enter the container and cause merchandise harm.
Once converted into a cold storage unit, containers retain the ability to stay sealed. This ensures the temperature stays consistent within the unit. Dry ice and regular frozen or refrigerated goods can maintain an even temperature easily when they are placed in a refrigerated shipping container.
