Special refrigerant developed by ITE provides air cargo transportation of small cargo with a fixed temperature.

  • Long-term fixed temperature control
    for 100 hours or above*

    * The length of the time differs according to conditions,
    such as outside air temperature.

  • Acceptable from a container

Three strength of PRIO IB

PRIO IB provides extended storage from acceptance to delivery of cargo
at a fixed temperature for 100 hours.

Existing refrigerated transportation services using dry ice have various problems in maintaining a fixed temperature range.
PRIO IB can maintain the designated temperatures for long periods (e.g., temperature range of 2°C to 8°C, 100 hours and above) using ITE's Special refrigerant refrigerant.
PRIO IB handles the transportation of products requiring strict temperature control, such as fresh food, pharmaceuticals, semiconductor materials. Furthermore,
PRIO IB has high safety without using dry ice and is environmentally friendly without emitting carbon dioxide.

Special refrigerant enables long-term fixed temperature transportation.

Special refrigerant, a technology developed by ITE, has the following features.

The features of Special refrigerant●Fixed temperature: Maintains fixed temperatures of reefer containers even with outside air temperatures of 30°C and above
●Long periods: Maintains fixed temperatures up to 120 hours and longer
●Energy saving: No need for an energy supply during transportation
●CO2 reduction: Enables drastic CO2 reduction without using dry ice

Various types of cargo are acceptable
from large container-size cargo
to small box-size cargo.

PRIO IB provides the fixed temperature transportation of large cargo using LD3 containers and even small lot or small size cargo, which was not acceptable, using 16 L and 64 L boxes.

Adjustable settings
from three temperature ranges

2℃to8℃ -20℃to-15℃ -25℃to-20℃

Choice from the three temperature ranges below ideal for each cargo.

Temperature ranges

  • 2°C to 8°C / for fresh food, pharmaceutical
  • -20°C to -15°C / for refrigerated products
  • -25°C to -20°C / for deeply frozen products
  • *LD3 containers are limited to the temperature range of 2°C to 8°C.
