Heating sock as the next step in conditioned transport

Heating sock as the next step in conditioned transport

Optimising the supply chain is one of the priorities that Van den Bosch commits to every day. Smaller innovations play at least as big a role in this endeavour as large innovations. The heating sock is a great example of this. With the heating sock we take the next step in conditioned transport of liquid foodstuffs.

The transportation of heat sensitive products requires the tank container’s temperature to be carefully regulated, seen as these products cool down quickly and at the same time cannot become too hot as this causes them to burn. However, it is not possible to suit the product valve, through which the product is unloaded, with heat regulation. The result? The lack of heating causes the product to solidify around the product valve which makes it nearly impossible to open and difficult to unload. The solution has been found in the heating sock.

The heating sock is connected to the truck and leads to the truck’s battery through a cable. The temperature can be set manually between 0 and 80 degrees, preventing product solidification around the product valve. Once the set temperature is reached, the heating sock turns off automatically.

High-Volume Temperature Controlled Tank Container
With our focus on dry as well as liquid bulk, Van den Bosch transports various heat sensitive products every day, including glucose and chocolate products such as milk chocolate and ice dipping. We previously introduced the High-Volume Temperature Controlled Tank Container as an innovation in intermodal transportation of liquid foodstuffs. Now we shift our focus to the unloading of these products. Introducing the heating sock facilitates this and further optimises the supply chain.
