PRODUCTS
Thermal Systems
Active Thermal Systems - Active Active thermal systems do not use any phase change materials (PCM) such as water/ice or dry ice. These systems use mechanical or electric systems powered by an energy source, combined by thermostatic control to maintain proper product temperatures.
Passive Thermal Systems - Passive Passive thermal systems commonly use phase change materials (PCM) such as water/ice or dry ice. These shipping systems are the most basic and cost effective.
Hybrid Thermal Systems - Hybrid Hybrid thermal systems use a combination of phase change materials (PCM) such as water/ice or dry ice and thermostatic controls. These systems typically use the PCM’s as a source of energy, which is regulated by some type of thermostatic control to maintain proper temperatures.
Temperature Monitors
Digital Temperature Monitors-DigitalDigital temperature monitors provide a highly accurate, traceable means of monitoring product or air temperature while in transit. Several technologies and price points are available.
Chemical Temperature Monitors - ChemicalChemical monitors offer an often simple and cost effective means of monitoring of a product payload during transit. Reduced accuracy when compared to digital monitors exists due to technology limitations.
Mechanical Temperature Monitors - MechanicalMechanical temperature monitors are a low cost means of obtaining temperature information of your product during transit. Accuracy is not as good as digital monitors, but these units can provide time history temperature information unlike chemical monitors.
Insulated Containers
Molded & Flexible
Insulated Containers - Molded FlexibleMolded insulated containers are typically composed of two matching components (body and lid) which provides the greatest insulating integrity, especially when subjected to drop and vibration forces. These containers often require tooling and are not typically collapsible. Flexible insulated containers include pallet covers, pouches, box liners, and bags.
Panels Insulated Containers - PanelsInsulated containers which use panels are typically composed of six matching components (sides, ends and top/bottom) which is typically subject to increased thermal losses, especially when subjected to drop and vibration forces. These containers do not require tooling and are collapsible.  Most vacuum panel insulated containers are in this category.
Gel Packs
Rigid/Bricks Gel Packs - Rigid BricksRigid gel packs usually come in the form of ‘bricks’ or bottles. These gel packs are ideal for use when rigidity or reusability are required while also providing a more reliable shape when frozen when compared to flexible film gel packs.
Flexible Bags Gel Packs - FlexibleFlexible gel packs are the lowest cost type of gel packs. With the low cost typically comes the inability to re-use them and the higher potential for leakage. These requires that the Phase Change Material (PCM) typically be in the form of a gel, which is usually water based.
