Transporting pharmaceutical products by air around the world in safe and temperature-controlled conditions is a life critical business. Especially in the globalized world that we live in, reliable airfreight cooling is vital for the patients who depend on effective medication. Having a reliable cold chain during the whole transportation is the key to keeping the number of wasted pharmaceuticals due to a broken cold chain as low as possible.
On many occasions, temperature fluctuations around 2°C can make the difference regarding the viability of vaccines. To maintain these strict temperature conditions, Secop offers a multitude of DC-powered compressors to equip specialized containers. While the usual transportation methods rely on gel packs, dry ice, or operating compressors during transportation to cool the goods, the installed BD-Series compressor operates prior to the transportation to freeze the container’s eutectic plates. Thereby, the current containers are able to get FAA approval while exceeding the World Health Organization’s “Cold Chain Storage and Distribution” guidelines. The BD-Series compressors use approximately 6 kilowatts of energy to freeze the cooling plates prior to the transportation. This reduces the cost down to $0.50. The eutectic cooling plates can keep the goods cool for days while the containers can be moved without any additional necessary equipment.
Our BD-Series compressors are able to withstand harsh changes in climate conditions and are unsurpassed in tolerating vibrations. Our compressor models BD350GH and BD250GH.2 have been used specifically for airfreight cooling for many years. The installed electronic control unit is proven to be very robust while maintaining accurate temperatures and meeting the EMC requirements for aviation.
