  2. 2.  Intermodal tank containers are designed for transport on road, rail, and sea  Built to 20 ft ISO dimensions, it is the same size as a traditional box container  Barrel contained within ISO frame is constructed of stainless steel and has an insulation blanket that is covered by a cladding of GRP or aluminum alloy  Food-grade tank containers started as standard tankers (similar to chemical tanks) that have been dedicated to the transportation of food-grade liquids  Hawaii Intermodal has designed tanks to improve efficiencies for product specific needs, i.e., changed valving for shipping milk from California to Hawaii, applied aseptic technology for shipping NFC OJ in Florida, etc.
  3. 3. Origins/Destinations Oakland, CA Long Beach, CA Honolulu, HI Kauai, HI Hilo, HI Fort Pierce, FL Jacksonville, FL Port Manatee, FL Sulphur Springs, TX Shanghai, China Puerto Rico Costa Rica Clovis, NM Ceres, South Africa Toronto, Canada
  4. 4. • Standard 20 ft dimensional envelope o 316 l Stainless steel 2b finish vessel o Superior insulation o Cladding/external skin of GRP • Dimensions o Length 20 ft (6.1m) o Width 8 ft (2.44m) o Height 8.6 ft (2.59m) • Ladder at discharge end o Stainless steel anti slip • Walkways on the top o 19 inch (475 mm ) wide aluminum grid from ladder top to along side center manhole • Payload – 24,000 L (6,300 gallons) • Valve o 3 inch hygienic valve with RJT coupling and captive blank cap (standard milk transport fittings) o With lockable/sealable insulated cover • Refrigerated Units Available o Operating temperature from -20° C to 10° C • PLC Technology (for critical process control) o Track Shipment locations o Temperature and pressure reports updated frequently
  5. 5. Orange Juice OBSERVED SHIPPING TEMPERATURES loaded in Florida at 12° F 25 20 15 °F Trucked to rail station 10 5 0 Rail to Port of Long Beach Loaded to vessel Unloaded at plant & shipped to HI in Hawaii at 22° F
  6. 6.  Improved cold chain management  Refrigerated units maintain product temperature from -20°C to 10°C  RTD logging provides real-time updates of product temperature  Low-cost cold static storage  Standard electrical plug ensures operation while on road, rail, or sea  Ensured product integrity
  7. 7. Tank Cleaning Discharge Sterilization Traceability Loading Pressurization
  8. 8. Tank Cleaning CIP Wash System  JPA approved wash completed before sterilization • Prior load history provided for each tank (3 loads)  ATP & allergen tests conducted to ensure proper sanitization of equipment
  9. 9. Sterilization ClO2 Sterilization  Chlorine dioxide kills microorganisms by disrupting transport of nutrients across the cell wall (Strong Oxidizer)  First registered by EPA in aqueous form in 1967 as disinfectant/sanitizer  Registered as gas sterilant in 1988 for mfg equipment, environmental surfaces, tools, and clean rooms  Enerfab/Purdue University developed the use of ClO2 for various sterilization purposes including:  Sterilization of processing equipment surfaces (vessels, pipelines, etc.)  Sterilization of food surfaces  Sterilization of food processing facilities  Benefits of using Enerfab ClO2 process includes:  Lower utility costs  Shortened sterilization time  Reduction in waste water  Reduced sterilization time (from 6 days to 1 day)
  10. 10. Loading & Pressurization Valves & Equipment  Designed to integrate with systems set up at processing facilities  Quick, convenient loading/unloading of product  Optional level control probes available for precise loading Pressurized Vessel  After sterilization, tanks are pressurized with sterile nitrogen and sealed  Process ensures sterility when tanks arrive at facility
  11. 11. • Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) log product temperature from the time the temperature is loaded, until the time of discharge • Sanitary Pressure Sensors continually monitor and transmit internal tank pressure to ensure that positive pressure is maintained throughout shipping • PLC Displays log data and provide easy access to logged information  Each tank fitted with a PLC that logs data from each sensor  Displays are uploaded to a database upon departure and arrival  Client log-in on our website allows for customers to access updated information on their shipments
  12. 12. Why tanks over other methods?  Ease of use  Reduced capital investment  Reduced labor and product handling costs  Ship larger volumes  Elimination of product loss from bags/bins  Safer/more stable than large bags in containers
  13. 13. Why tanks over other methods?  Reduced loading/unloading time  Re-use – no need to purchase a bag every time  Eco-Friendly Footprint  Potential to eliminate re-pasteurization Added supply chain value from shipping your aseptic product in bulk!!!
