Customized Cold Chain Solutions
(Left: Dry Ice seperation insert. Right: Molded slot for papers and literature.)
Dry Ice can present a simple and inexpensive solution for transporting a frozen item, but can also make it difficult for the recipient to retrieve their product if it surrounded by hazardous dry ice. A customized solution for one client’s shipments was to mold an insert that would separate the dry ice from the payload. This insert (the blue panel in the diagram above) allowed the dry ice to be kept on the bottom of the shipper and the product to be safely stored in an area above the ice. The receiving client could then retrieve the product from the top of the shipper and would not have to worry about touching the dry ice.
Another challenge presented by most cold chain shipments are the frozen gel packs. While the ice provided by the gel packs keeps your shipment at a desired temperature, the weight of the gel packs as well as the condensation that develops on the gels can potentially damage the payload that is being shipped. A client of EFP wanted to ship documentation and pamphlets to customers along with their product but feared that the paper may become damaged by the gel packs during transit. A small side compartment was added to the shipper (the red panel in the diagram above) that would separate any paper literature from the potentially wet conditions and keep the pack out of the shipment the same.
