Nuovo Borgo Terminal Containers Srl



NBTC e Reefers NBTC repair reefer container units since many years, before with external collaborators and since January 2016 with own specialized technicians. Actually NBTC is Carrier and Daikin Dealer and it's a very important reference point in Genouese shipping.

Cold Treatment

For the treatment to be effective, the fruit must be maintained at the temperature stipulated in the protocol of the individual country. Therefore, being able to control the temperature is vital. The exporter should pre-cool the fruit at the temperature indicated in the protocol for at least 48 hours before loading. The empty reefer container undergoes an inspection known as a pre-trip inspection in which: The refrigeration unit is checked to ensure that the temperature control and measuring and data recording equipment are functioning correctly. It is checked for structural damage. The cleanliness of the container is checked prior to goods being loaded. The container is prepared and set up with the temperature, humidity and ventilation requested by the supplier or loading company via email. The exporter checks the functioning and cleanliness of the reefer container. If it is not in perfect working order, temperature spikes could cause erroneous readings and the cold treatment process would have to be repeated. A plant health inspector from the Ministry of Agriculture goes to the client’s warehouse where loading takes place to ensure the three probes are correctly introduced into the fruit (a probe is an instrument which is introduced into a body or substance to explore a part of it or to extract or introduce substances). The probes record the temperature of the fruit at three particular points within the container which are specified in the individual protocol. Before being inserted, the probes are calibrated to ensure they function correctly. This is done by submerging the probes in ice until they reach 0ºC. They are left to warm up before being placed in the ice again several times to ensure that they are working perfectly. Once calibrated, and the fruit is loaded into the container, the probes are pushed into the fruit until they reach the flesh as the important thing is the temperature of the fruit and not of the container. In each cold treatment the three probes have to be below the required temperature. Once placed, the technicians record the fact that the probes are functioning correctly, they certify that the requirements are met and they attach this information to the phytosanitary certificate.
