Morgan Corporation has introduces its Cold Plate system. Cold Plate is a cost-effective, more reliable, and greener alternative to traditional refrigeration units, offering superb temperature control.
By generating and maintaining the coldest temperatures available, products can stay cold all day in an unopened cargo area, even under conditions such as complete power failure. Morgan partnered with system manufacturer Dole Refrigeration to provide an extra layer of reliability and dependability that keeps products cold and fresh, prevents spoilage, and uses minimal energy while being robust and reliable under all transport conditions.
Morgan’s design for both the Cold Plate Blower and Plate systems follows the same standards that Morgan is known for. Cold Plate is powered electrically, as compared with engine-driven refrigeration units, saving significant costs in fuel on every loaded run.
Benefits and advantages of Cold Plate include:
•Saves fuel—Idling is not required during stops, system maintains proper and efficient body temperature.
•Saves product during vehicle breakdown because the system does not depend on engine uptime. Product can be recovered during longer periods of vehicle inactivity.
•Low-cost maintenance and simple operation with minimum moving parts.
•Near-constant temperatures maintained throughout normal delivery day, ensuring safe product life.
•Simple hot gas defrost operation; plug it in at night and walk away.
•Sanitary—No inaccessible parts to keep clean.
Morgan bodies deliver design features that provide better protection both inside and out. Additional features and benefits include external skins that fit into the bottom rail to keep moisture out of the cargo area; thermal breaks to help to mitigate heat transfer; and easy-to-clean interior walls and flooring to maintain a healthy environment. Sliding/swing rear door configurations require a fraction of the swing radius of traditional doors and make loading and unloading easier, especially in tight spaces. A variety of floor surface configurations—from flooring that helps to move moisture away to surfaces that provide added traction—all support a safer environment.
