Cold Storage System with Loading Bridge

It is of vital importance to maintain the cold chain during the transportation, loading and storage. It is also very important to be energy efficient to reduce the cost of maintaining a constant temperature in the facilities.

For this reason, Inkema has developed two Cold Storage Systems with loading bridge, one aimed for indoor (PFIP) and another one for outdoor (PFEP).

Both systems are composed by:

  • a hydraulic loading bridge
  • isothermal insulation
  • steel bumpers
  • an inflatable shelter
  • an insulated sectional door.

The only difference between the two systems comes from the installation method: in external mode a free-standing frame and an isothermal dock house must be added, to act as an external loading bay.

COMPOSITION AS INTERNAL LOADING BAY - PFIP

OPERATION AS INTERNAL LOADING BAY - PFIP

1. Once the truck is parked in the loading dock, the inflatable shelter begins to inflate until it is perfectly coupled to it. When the seal between the truck and the bay is optimal, the sectional door its opening automatically.
 
2. Then, after opening the sectional door, we proceed now to open the rear gates of the truck that will be fitted onto the loading bay platform. When the truck gates are fully open, the hydraulic bridge will be activated and the loading and unloading process will begin.

Once the loading or unloading is finished, the inverse operation process of the Cold Store Loading Bay - PFIP begins. The hydraulic bridge returns to its initial position. The truck gates are closed, and then the sectional door is closed. Afterwards, the inflatable shelter begins to deflate and when it is totally collected in the sides of the tunnel, the truck can depart.

COMPOSITION AS OUTDOOR LOADING BAY - PFEP

OPERATION AS OUTDOOR LOADING BAY  - PFEP

1. The truck parks in the loading bay, fitting perfectly to the inflatable shelter. Once the truck is sealed by the shelter, automatically, the door of the system can be opened, as well as the truck gates.

2. Finally, when the truck doors are fully open, the hydraulic bridge for loading and unloading is activated.

Once the loading or unloading is finished, the inverse operation process starts:

The bridge is activated to descend to its initial position. The truck gates are closed, and then the sectional door is closed. Afterwards, the inflatable shelter begins to deflate and when it is totally collected in the sides of the dock house, the truck can depart.
