Outgassing: what is it and why should you care? The Trailer Experts over here at Pedigree are here to explain and give some advice. This short article will explain one of the biggest reasons drivers are losing profits out there on the road and how to make the choices that will keep your money in your pocket.
Before we talk about the process of outgassing, we first need to talk temperature. You know that keeping your load at the right temperature isn’t an option. You have to protect that load above all things. You trust your reefer trailer to do its job and maintain your loads each and every time. When looking for a used reefer trailer you need to find a reefer with the BTUs you need to get the job done.
What is a BTU? BTU stands for British Thermal Unit. BTU refers to the amount of energy it takes to increase the temperature of a pound of water by one degree. BTUs are often used to measure the effectiveness of air conditioning or refrigerated units. Essentially, the more BTUs your reefer has, the more powerful it is and capable of maintaining the right temperature for your load.
