    That is so true, it is a filthy job, and i like it.

    what other job can you get dirty thinking and get paid for it.

There are for and against, but I choose to not do this trade due to the road grim side of the job. I'm not scared to get my hands dirty, but it gets inbeded into your hands over time, and every thing you touch, gets a dark film on it.
    This is my experience, but it do not mean you would not enjoy it.
    This is true but it still beats laying on a greasy,grimy,rat infested foreigner owned restaurant floor.

    hi all,
    i'm fairly new at this site and couldn't really figure out where to post this new posting about a question i have. Can any Reefer techs, (transport refrigeration mechanics) out here can refer me any reading material to study?
    i'm looking for this because there's a transport refrigeration company that wants hire me and i would like to best prepare myself by studying as much as possible about this field. If you guys can recommend any reading materials, or websites etc i would highly appreciate it.

    This thread is of interest to me as well. Units like this are probably the most I will get to work on during my remaining 5 years of active duty. They dont let us touch anything else really "contracted out"...

    Well, about transport refrigeration unit, refrigerant for chiller unit is usually R134A, the temp could reach -5℃. Refrigerant for frozen unit is usually R404A, the temp could cool down to -18℃ or even lower than that depending on panel thickness of reefer container. Though some large international TRU supplier starts to use some other refrigerants (said to be more eco-friendly), it is just beginning and a plan.

    Diesel no; but there used to be lots of natural gas powered walk and reach in units. Supermarkets used them.

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.
