Klinge Corporation Wins Contract to Provide Ice Core Storage Solution for Oregon State University

Share Article

Klinge Corporation, the specialist manufacturer of transport and storage refrigeration equipment, has won a contract to deliver refrigerated container systems that will be used to store polar ice cores.

The company based in York, Pennsylvania, will provide a 40-foot ISO refrigerated container system to Oregon State University. Klinge Corporation will deliver a primary and back-up nose mounted style refrigeration unit model NMR-262 and generator set model NMG-115.

The 40-foot refrigerated container system will be used for the storage of ice core samples, which contain an abundance of climate information that can extend back hundreds of thousands of years. Such valuable cargo requires numerous fail-safes to ensure the required cooling.

The Nose Mount Refrigeration Unit (NMR) Model 262 dual refrigeration unit is designed for extremely temperature sensitive and valuable cargo, offering primary and back-up temperature control systems to ensure complete and independent protection.

The Nose Mount Generator Set (NMG) Model 115 provides an integral generator set for emergency power or when land power is not available.

Klinge Corporation’s Sales Manager said: “Our Company’s experience in providing refrigeration systems for the transport and storage of ice cores, hazardous goods, and highly valuable cargo, has enabled us to provide the kind of specialized equipment needed by Oregon State University.” Klinge’s special line of redundant container systems offers primary and back-up refrigeration units so that failure of one system would automatically start the other system.

The Klinge refrigerated containers will maintain cargo temperature of -25º Celsius and will be operable in all weather conditions with an ambient temperature range of -25º Celsius to +50º Celsius.

As required by the customer, temperature monitoring and recording systems will provide a record of temperature over time, and current temperature readout. Additionally, user adjustable high temperature alarms (with audible alarm) will be capable of sending an electronic power failure alarm signal to the University alarm system
