MAGNUM PLUS® Optima – Controlled Atmosphere, fresh cargo by ship while maintaining peak conditions
Thermo King has taken existing controlled atmosphere (CA) technology to a higher level with its newest atmosphere management product: the MAGNUM PLUS® Optima. This solution brings fresh cargo by ship to consumers all over the world while maintaining peak conditions.

Because fresh produce are living organisms that ‘breathe’ after harvest, quick removal of oxygen is imperative to slow down the ripening processes. Conventional passive CA systems only maintain the atmosphere after oxygen has been slowly removed by the respiring produce.

Thermo King Optima provides active regulation to promptly reduce and maintain oxygen concentrations. This immediately decelerates the ripening process so that produce is maintained at peak condition throughout shipping. Active technology allows for more precise control over the reefer environment.
