Dear Community, 

 

perhaps you will be able to help me with the following question - do you have any materials on how a liquid (let's assume water) behaves as function of the duration of trips in regular containers/trucks/insulated trucks/non operating reefers – in different outside temperature conditions?

 

The idea behind it is of course cost savings - if let's say I could transport a liquid product for more hours in a regular truck for a few more hours without compromising quality i/o in insulated truck as I currently do.

 

Many thanks in advance!

Dear Agata,

 

That depends on the liquid you are transporting. And the legal requirements and the quality/food safety criteria that are applicable to that liquid.

 

Kind regards,

Hi Gerard, 

 

thank you for your reply! 

That would be a soft drink in my case... I also found this website http://www.container...4_03_01_01.html and tried to use the equation provided there, however i'm stuck at the meaning of "e"... any idea what that could be?  :helpplease:

Dear Agata,

 

Couldn't it be Euler's number? As it isn't specified under the equation, it's the first thing I think about. Also, because this mathematical constant plays a role in natural processes.

 

"The number e is a approximately equal to 2.71828"

 

It's interesting to see, whether it gives you relevant results, when you put 2.71828 in your equation.

 

Kind regards,

 

Gerard
