Pharmaceuticals Discover Refrigeration Containers Temperature Precision

Refrigerated cold storage containers

Pharmaceuticals use refrigeration containers for precise temperature storage.  Refrigerated containers, commonly known as reefers, are designed to maintain accurate temperatures through a combination of components and systems:

  1. Insulation: These containers are well insulated to prevent external temperature fluctuations from affecting the interior. The insulation material helps maintain the desired temperature by reducing the transfer of heat from the external environment.
  2. Refrigeration Systems: Reefers are equipped with sophisticated refrigeration units. These systems typically consist of compressors, condensers, evaporators, and fans. The compressor compresses a refrigerant gas, increasing its temperature and pressure. The heated gas moves through the condenser, dissipating heat and turning the gas into a high-pressure liquid. This liquid then passes through an expansion valve, where it undergoes a pressure drop, turning into a low-pressure, cool liquid. This cool liquid absorbs heat from the interior of the container and evaporates back into a gas in the evaporator, thus cooling the interior space.Pharmaceutical cold storage
  3. Temperature Monitoring and Control: These containers are equipped with sensors to monitor the temperature inside the container. The data from these sensors is sent to a control system that adjusts the refrigeration system accordingly to maintain the desired temperature.
  4. Air Circulation: Fans within the reefer ensure proper air circulation, distributing the cooled air evenly throughout the container. This prevents temperature variations and ensures that all parts of the container maintain a consistent temperature.
  5. Power Source: Reefers are powered by an external power supply or by an onboard generator set. They can maintain the required temperature as long as they have a continuous and reliable power source.

By integrating these components and systems, refrigerated containers can maintain accurate temperatures, making them crucial for transporting temperature-sensitive goods, including pharmaceuticals, food, and other perishable items over long distances.

For these reasons, maintaining accurate cold storage is not just a matter of quality control but also a critical component in ensuring that medications remain safe and effective from production to patient use.

Refrigerated Containers – Delivery is Key!

In the fast-paced world of business, where products and services are just a click away, what sets apart the good from the exceptional? One word: Delivery. No, we’re not talking about logistics (although that’s crucial too), but the excellent customer service that relies on the highest delivery standards for our refrigerated containers.

Refrigerated Containers tight delivery

First Impressions Matter: In the realm of customer service, the first impression is often the last impression. How you deliver a service or product can leave a lasting impact on your customer. It’s not just about meeting expectations; it’s about exceeding them. A smooth, efficient, and friendly delivery can turn a one-time buyer into a loyal customer.

Communication is Key: Ever had an issue with a product or service and the customer support made it right seamlessly? That’s the power of effective communication. Good delivery involves not just the physical handing over of a product but making sure the unit is dropped exactly where the customer requires it. It is also the way you communicate throughout the process. Timely updates, clear instructions, and a proactive approach can turn a potential problem into an opportunity to showcase stellar service.

Building Trust:Trust is the currency of customer loyalty. When customers trust that their purchases will be handled with care and efficiency, they are more likely to come back for more. Good delivery builds this trust by showing customers that their satisfaction is your priority. It’s not just about delivering a product; it’s about delivering on promises and building a relationship.

The art of delivery is the secret sauce that transforms a transaction into an experience. It’s the bridge that connects businesses with their customers on a personal level. So, let’s raise a toast to good delivery—where customer service isn’t just a department, but a philosophy embedded in every step of the journey.

Cold Storage to Aid Refugee Operations

Cold Storage to Aid Refugee Operations

Portables360 is proud to offer support to those supporting others.

We recently shipped out over 30 refrigerated storage units to support food service vendors preparing to distribute food and meals for Afghan refugees in the US.

The Afghan refugees are staying at military bases around the US. One of these bases is Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey.

This facility is a combination of three other military units: the old McGuire Air Force Base, the Army’s former Fort Dix, and the Naval Air Engineering Station Lakehurst.

This base currently has the capacity to house around 3,500 evacuees, but they are hoping to expand to shelter 10,000.

There is another shelter located in Virginia at the Fort Pickett Army Base. This facility is currently housing about 5,000 Afghans and is also hoping to expand up to 10,000.

There will certainly be a lot of supplies and resources needed to support this number of people. Portables360 is happy to assist the food service vendors to provide fresh food to those in shelter at these bases.

Our cold storage units are a great solution for food vendors looking to transport and store large quantities of supplies.

Providing a Controlled Climate for Cannabis Cultivator

Providing a Controlled Climate for Cannabis Cultivator

The use of medical marijuana has become increasingly popular in the United States in the last few years.


While many states have already legalized medical marijuana, we are seeing more states start to legalize recreational marijuana too.


This comes as no surprise since the legal marijuana market is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 26.7% from 2021 to 2028.


While marijuana isn’t legal in all states yet, several cultivators have been cashing in on this business.


One of our most recent deliveries was to a marijuana cultivator in Massachusetts.


This grower needed a way to control the temperature and humidity. Luckily, Portables360 was able to help by providing equipment that does exactly that!


Our portable storage units became the ideal solution for storing the flower and maintaining its freshness.


As a result of our storage solutions, this grower will yield a fresh product that maintains 100% of the cannabinoids (the compounds found in cannabis, like THC and CBD) and terpenes (the compounds that create the flavors, aromas, color, and more).

Cold Storage Solutions for the Rosh Hashanah Rush

Cold Storage Solutions for the Rosh Hashanah Rush

The Jewish calendar is based on the lunar calendar. As a result, the timing of high holidays varies from year to year. Rosh Hashanah is the next Jewish holiday approaching, and it begins on September 6th this year.

As the holiday season approaches, kosher grocers build up their inventories to meet the extraordinary holiday demand.

One of the kosher supermarkets dealing with the influx of demand is Pomegranate Grocery in Brooklyn, NY.

Pomegranate Grocery is among the largest kosher grocers in the NY Metropolitan area and is facing an extraordinary demand for their food this holiday season.


Portables360 supports these grocers by providing the store with short-term rentals of cold storage containers.

With a limited amount of space, Pomegranate Grocery obtains DOT permits to allow our units to be housed directly in front of a major road in Brooklyn, NY.

We couldn’t be happier to assist our clients to ensure that both the store and all of their customers have a safe and efficient holiday shopping experience!

Bakery Owners Find A Tasty Storage Solution

Bakery Owners Find A Tasty Storage Solution

Divvies Bakery made the move from New York to Connecticut about 3 years ago.

Once they moved, the owners grappled with the idea of building a walk-in cooler to keep both their raw materials and finished products fresh (and/or frozen) both pre- and post-production.

However, once they realized the cost and time to build a walk-in, they researched and discovered another option…containerized cold storage.

As a bakery specializing in vegan and nut-free products, a cold storage container is essential to maintain the freshness of their products.

As their business grew, they added products, increased production, and required even more space.

It was then they realized the ancillary benefit of the cold storage containers. By parking the units alongside their building, they maintained the same production footprint inside the warehouse.

This enabled them to continue growing without the cost, administration, and operational impact of building a walk-in or moving to a larger facility.

The bakery was able to keep up with their increased demand by dropping another cold storage box directly next to the prior unit!
