Aug 04,2017

Guchen Thermo transport refrigeration units, van chiller units or truck freezer units for cold chain or other reefer units for special vehicles, help transport meats,fruits, vegetables, milk, yogurt, and frozen goods across the country. Cleaning the cargo area of the refrigeration units is important to keep bacteria at bay. The drivers are asked to clean the transport refrigeration units out before picking up a new haul of items that require refrigeration. Cleaning out a Guchen Thermo transport refrigeration units do take time out of a trucker’s trip but it also ensures food safety for all who handle and eat the unit’s contents. If time is of the essence, drivers can always schedule a professional wash at a large truck stop for a fee.

Step 1: 
Turn the van chiller units or truck freezer units for cold chain off before you start to clean transport refrigeration units out.

Step 2:
Remove any palettes, meat hooks or other hardware from the cargo space.

Step 3:
Put on your rubber gloves and mask. Mix five parts transport refrigeration units detergent to 10 parts water in the 5-gallon bucket. Pour the mixture into the soap dispenser of the power washer.

Step 4:
Hook the power washer up to the garden hose.

Step 5:
Turn the power washer on and set the heat to low. Set the spray to high power. Spray the inside of the Guchen Thermo transport refrigeration unit. Spray the ceiling first, and then spray each side wall. Spray each wall from the top to the bottom.

Step 6:
Power wash the floor of the reefer unit for trucks. Start at the back of the truck freezer units for cold chain and spray toward the door. Use a wide broom to sweep the excess water from the floor and out the doors.

Step 7:
Sweep the floors with a reefer trailer broom after they have dried. Reefer trailer brooms have notched bristles that can get down into the grooves of the cargo floor. This will remove excess debris that can harbor bacteria.

Tip:
If your Guchen Thermo transport refrigeration unit does not smell fresh, throw coffee grounds on the floor before you clean it out. Close the doors of the reefer unit for trucks or van chiller units and set the thermostat to 80 degrees. Let the coffee grounds sit for 20 minutes. Turn the heat off and open the doors. Let the grounds cool for 15 minutes. Clean it as usual.

Warning: 
An electric power washer is a safer choice to use in transport refrigeration units because it does not use gasoline that can contaminate the space.
