Cold Chain Package Design
The design process for a cold chain shipment is the first step to ensuring your packages arrive safe and properly conditioned. The Center of Excellence lab is run by a team of experienced scientists and engineers ready to create a qualified shipper designed specifically for your products. Our research into thermal properties, heat transferring, and computer modelling of packaging transits combined with experience in the shipping industry allow us to create a successful solution at an expedited rate.
throughout the transit.
SimulationThe design process is centered around your product with a focus on safe transit both physically and thermally. Cold chain shipper designs will start with thermal modelling performed by our design engineer. This can show potential hot spots for your package, as well as give the best configuration for optimized shipping. The computer modeling process also eliminates the "trial-and-error" portion of design which will greatly expedite the qualification of you shipper.
Thermal TestingAfter a passing configuration is found for your desired temperature range, thermal testing will begin to confirm the simulation. Thermal chambers are used to test a pack out of your product that will simulate either industry standard profiles such as ISTA 7D or your own custom profile that matches your shipping lanes. Thermocouples within the chamber and your shipper will monitor for any temperature deviations that may occur during the transit providing the customer with proof that their shipments stayed at a desired temperature
throughout the transit.
After TestingThe design process ends with the client receiving a full lab report of their passing shipper. Clients can then proceed with drop testing to see how durable the packaging is physically and real time monitoring with data loggers that will verify the shipments are staying in their temperature range during an actual transit.
Pack Expo Vegas - TempWe are excited to announce that EFP’s Temperature Solutions Group will be exhibiting at Pack Expo this year along with our Custom Packaging & Components side of the business! The show will be held on September 11th – September 13th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Visit our Cold Chain booth #6729 in the Healthcare Packaging Pavilion as we showcase our new sustainable and economical initiatives to the cold chain packaging industry. At Pack Expo, you will experience exhibitors launching products, showcasing latest innovations, and problem-solving with customers from all around.
