Reefer Trailer Repairs
Reefer trailers, also known as refrigerated trailers, are specialized trailers that are used to transport perishable goods such as food and pharmaceuticals. These trailers are equipped with refrigeration units that maintain a specific temperature range to ensure that the goods being transported remain in good condition.
Chuck's Truck Service Centre provides a range of services for Reefer trailers to help keep them in good working order. Some of the common services that they offer include:
- Air leak patching: Air leaks can occur in the refrigeration unit or the trailer itself, and they can have a significant impact on the efficiency of the refrigeration system. Chuck's Truck Service Centre can identify and repair air leaks to help improve the performance of the refrigeration unit.
- Equalizer tube repairs: The equalizer tube helps to balance the pressure between the refrigeration unit and the trailer. If this tube becomes damaged, it can cause problems with the refrigeration system. Chuck's Truck Service Centre can repair or replace the equalizer tube as needed.
- Cooling hose repairs: The cooling hoses are responsible for carrying refrigerant to and from the refrigeration unit. If these hoses become damaged, it can cause leaks and other problems with the refrigeration system. Chuck's Truck Service Centre can repair or replace damaged cooling hoses.
- Seal repair: The seals around the doors and other openings on the trailer are important for maintaining the temperature inside the trailer. If these seals become damaged or worn, it can cause temperature fluctuations that can impact the quality of the goods being transported. Chuck's Truck Service Centre can repair or replace damaged seals as needed.
- Sensor calibration: The sensors on the refrigeration unit are responsible for monitoring and maintaining the temperature inside the trailer. If these sensors become misaligned or malfunction, it can cause problems with the temperature control. Chuck's Truck Service Centre can calibrate the sensors to ensure that they are working correctly.
- Bulkhead repair: The bulkhead is the wall that separates the refrigerated section of the trailer from the non-refrigerated section. If the bulkhead becomes damaged, it can impact the efficiency of the refrigeration system. Chuck's Truck Service Centre can repair or replace the bulkhead as needed.
Overall, it is important to regularly maintain and service your Reefer trailer to ensure that it is in good working order. Chuck's Truck Service Centre recommends getting your trailer inspected and serviced once every 90 days to help prevent problems and keep your refrigeration system running smoothly.
