What actually makes an ice cream van?
But what has to be done for such a conversion? After all, it is essential to maintain certain temperatures over the long term. So if you want to convert a transporter or van into a refrigerator truck, you have to pay attention to various aspects. The alpha and omega of the ice cream truck is of course the cooling. It is operated electrically and ensures that the ice is cooled. The cooling spectrum ranges from frost to temperatures in the low range. Depending on the cooling model, the system is either installed directly in the vehicle or outside (often on the roof). The cooling must be connected to the vehicle electrical system depending on the installation location. It is important that cooling capacity is guaranteed even without the engine running. And of course, insulation is also important in a refrigerator truck. The structure that is to be used for cooling must be appropriately insulated so that the cooling capacity is not lost.
Insulation, cladding and Co.
The cladding is then based on the insulation. In principle, the changes are comparable to a classic one Conversion to a refrigerated vehicle. The ice cream truck usually also has a corresponding sales area integrated and is usually much more eye-catching. Many companies take over the conversion to an ice cream truck according to customer requirements. The companies also provide information on which legal regulations must be observed when converting. The spectrum ranges from a DIN standard for expansion through to food regulations.
