Developed in partnership with Teconja, a
German expert in juices, and Liqua, an expert in packaging solutions for the
transportation of liquids, REEFLEX greatly enhances the transportation of
liquids thanks to its design and unique technology, which guarantees a healthy
and safe way of transportation.
REEFLEX allows for the
transportation of liquids (juices, milk, compotes, syrup and all kind of oils) in
a single bag with a capacity ranging from 12,000 to 24,000 liters. Available on
Reefer containers of 40 feet, REEFLEX is installed in just 3 minutes. Thanks to
its external pumping system, the bag is filled and emptied in 35 minutes thanks
to its adapted design. REEFLEX represents an ideal alternative to break bulk
and it will allow exporters and importers to carry their goods by containers,
thus improving the conditions of transportation and delivery.
Moreover, REEFLEX helps maintain the
product’s nutritional and chemical properties thanks to a sterile environment
and controlled temperatures precisely maintained between -35°C and +20°C. Each
single-use bag is entirely recyclable, is produced based on the needs of
customers and meets the highest level of hygienic and safety constraints. Its
system allows filling up and emptying the bag without someone being present in
the container during these operations.
