Testing methodologies for refrigerating devices for insulated means of transport - Part 2: Eutectic cooling devices; German and English version prEN 16440-2:2020

Abstract

This document applies to eutectic cooling devices which are intended to be used with insulated transport equipment.The following applications are covered:• Eutectic cooling devices with or without compressor /condenser unit intended to be installed intoinsulated means of transport (e.g. lorries, trailers, swap bodies, other transport containers andwagons). Charging of the eutectic elements from the liquid to the solid phase may be performedeither by a compressor/condenser unit mounted onto the vehicle or cooled by a stationary direct or indirect system. The eutectic cooling devices are equipped, if relevant, with necessary components for the charging, transmission, cooling and/or with temperature control devices. The eutectic elements can be fitted with or without fans.• Eutectic cooling devices with independent eutectic elements which have to be charged using externalmeans.This document specifies the testing methodologies.This document is only applicable for mono-temperature eutectic cooling devices. This document does not provide any safety requirements.
