The Daikin Active CA was launched on the market in 2017. The Daikin CA unit operates inside a shipping container with a self-contained nitrogen generator that produces its own atmosphere using patented VPSA (Vacuum Pressure) technology. swing adsorption).
The nitrogen purification system covers the cargo with rich nitrogen and quickly adjusts the concentration of O2 and CO2 inside the container to the optimal level. The positive pressure created locks in the surrounding air to ensure active and precise maintenance of the atmosphere throughout the journey.
“The VPSA Active CA technology for the shipping container application is, as the name suggests, active, while the other leading technologies on the market are passive systems and therefore rely on inflating the cargo etc. says Goh Ah Huat, General Manager for Global Marketing and Services at Daikin Refrigeration.
“Daikin Active CA helps our customers achieve higher efficiency with increased load protection compared to all other AC technologies, including third-party systems (all passive types). »
According to Ah Goh, Daikin Active CA has enabled successful shipments that have improved the shelf life of fresh produce and reach new and distant markets under optimal conditions.
Among them are avocados from Peru to India, bananas from Ecuador to the Middle East, blueberries from Peru to Asia, custard apples from Taiwan to Canada/Toronto and sugar snaps from Peru to Japan.
“This technology works well for all perishable products (fruit and vegetables), but especially for staples such as salad, cut flowers, etc., where moisture retention is paramount. It can be used for short- and long-term expeditions, as Daikin CA, unlike passive systems , is equipped with an independent nitrogen generator that quickly reduces O2 and controls CO2 to an optimal level quickly. »
