Customized Star Cool Controller

When BITZER Electronics teamed up with Maersk Container Industry (MCI) to develop the next-generation reefer technology it was with a clear ambition: To reduce energy costs in reefers while never compromising reliability. The result is Star Cool – a unique solution offering the industry’s lowest energy consumption and extremely accurate temperature control. 

According to Maersk Container Industry energy savings exceeding 30% are not uncommon.

Optimum cargo quality is the primary objective in the reefer industry with energy costs as a close second. Offering significant energy savings and unmatched temperature control, the Star Cool technology will enable you to meet both requirements to improve your competitiveness and financial viability.

BITZER Electronics has contributed to the unique solution with the Star Cool controller, developed specially for the demanding conditions encountered at sea and based on decades of experience with cooling applications.

By perfectly matching the compressor speed to the required heat load, the controller keeps the environment inside the container optimized at all times to preserve premium cargo quality
