Liquid Nitrogen Based Transportable Refrigeration System- Sheetal Vahak Yantra (SHIVAY)

Standalone LN2 based refrigerated Container “SHIVAY”

Production of Zirconium diboride (ZrB<sub>2</sub>) powder and fabrication of high density ZrB<sub>2</sub> shapes

Road trial of the system
Overview

Liquid Nitrogen Based Transportable Refrigeration System- Sheetal Vahak Yantra (SHIVAY) intended for transportation of fruits vegetables & Pharmaceuticals products caters up-to requirement of minus 40 °C temperatures. This transportation can be carried out in a specially developed refrigerated container that can be mounted on any truck or can be built on the chassis of any vehicle. It is refrigerated by using liquid nitrogen. This technology has been tailor made for Indian conditions and is aimed at solving issues like high maintenance due to rough roads, which are faced by conventional refrigerated trucks (reefers) operators. The system does not use diesel for refrigeration, is 100% eco-friendly as it generates no pollutant gases or sound and is economical to use.

The system does not use diesel for refrigeration, is 100% eco-friendly as it generates no pollutant gases or sound and is economical to use.

ADVANTAGES

  • The cost of liquid nitrogen consumed is lower than cost of diesel consumed by 20-25%.

  • This standalone system needs no input from vehicle or the driver. Same system can be loaded and transferred on any carrier like train or truck. Thus it is truly multi modal.

  • Only two simple moving parts are used so minimum maintenance is expected.

  • Container can be built to any size.

  • LN2 is 100% eco-friendly. It is a by-product of oxygen plants.

  • Can travel 1200-1300 kms or 40 hrs, without refilling of liquid nitrogen in its tank.

APPLICATIONS

  • Fruits & Vegetable and products up-to minus 40 degree centigrade.

  • Pharmaceuticals Products.
