Payload Mass vs Payload Temperature

Shipping temperature-sensitive materials can pose a challenge in preventing spoilage and/or product ineffectiveness. Cold chain shipping systems are designed and qualified so that these products do not reach temperatures outside of their required storage ranges while the shippers are subjected to external ambient temperatures during transport and distribution. The thermal performance of these systems depends on several parameters, including outer surface area, insulation material and thickness, refrigerant or Phase Change Material properties, and related heat transfer phenomena. One of the main thermal performance dependent parameters to consider is payload mass. For most qualified cold chain Read More

Effectively Conditioning Bulk Refrigerants

When using passive temperature-controlled containers, it is necessary to pre-condition the components before packing. Generally, the components must be stabilized at specific temperatures. Typically, the outer containers and dunnage are held at room temperature. However, the refrigerants (such as gel packs or Phase Change Materials) need to be refrigerated (2°C to 8°C) and/or frozen (-20°C). For large scale applications, the refrigerants will be received and conditioned as full pallets. It is not uncommon for a pallet to weigh between 1500 and 2000 lbs. Because of the large pallet mass, it will take a number of days for the entire pallet Read More
