Uninterrupted cold chain
A “cold chain” is a temperature-controlled supply chain. Many foods, pharmaceutical products or industrial products must be stored and transported under refrigeration, so that their quality remains consistently high.
Particularly in the pharmaceutical industry, the (legal) requirements regarding controlled, temperature-managed transports are increasing. The need for professional refrigerated packaging is correspondingly high. Typical temperature ranges in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry are:
– the +2 to +8°C range (cool or chilled temperature range)
– the ambient range +15 to +25°C range (CRT – controlled room temperature)
Thermo packaging must ensure that these temperature ranges are also maintained during transport.
The EU directives on good distribution practice (GDP) are intended to support a safe supply chain. Pharmaceutical manufacturers, logistics service providers as well as pharmaceutical wholesalers are monitored by the different countries to ensure their implementation of the GDP directives.
And also the rapidly growing sector of selling food online is sensitized to the importance of reliable insulated packaging for fresh and temperature-sensitive products.
Often, active refrigerated transports are not economically viable or, depending on the transport route, not available. Here, passive cooling systems consisting of thermoboxes and cooling elements, are deployed. EPS (styrofoam) is one of the best-suited materials for insulated packaging.
Schaumaplast supplies over 90 EPS boxes (styrofoam boxes) and cooling elements, from gelpacks to hard plastic thermal packs. Customers who ship temperature-sensitive products can choose from these standard components and from prequalified refrigerated packaging options or have an individual thermal package tailor made for them.
Over 90 EPS thermoboxes
Our EPS thermobox portfolio covers all standard sizes, from 0.6 to over 1,200 liters of usable internal volume. The insulated containers are available at short notice, and without any additional tool costs whatever.
Choose a box that fits your requirements from our selection of over 90 different standard sizes and the cooling elements that belong to them.
You’ll find a general overview of all styropor boxes here, or set a filter to find just the right EPS box for you by entering your search criteria or moving the slider.
Prequalified and refrigerated packaging options
Prequalified refrigerated packaging
Schaumaplast offers three prequalified cooling packaging options for the +2 to +8°C range: the pallet box with its three capacity-extending levels, the 15-litre box and the Reusable VIP Thermobox. These refrigerated shipping solutions consist of an EPS or EPP box and the cooling elements designed to fit them perfectly.
The insulated boxes are designed to work for a period of up to 120 hours under challenging, realistic summer and winter conditions. This impressive cooling performance has been proven in climate chamber tests.
System boxes designed for your individual needs
- certified customer solutions
- Cooling times up to 120 hours
- Safe transport of your temperature-sensitive products
- +15 to +25°C
- +2 to +8°C
Based on decades of experience, we develop, produce and market individual refrigerated transport solutions for different temperature ranges. Besides our qualified system boxes for transportation within a range of +2 to +8°C, we are also happy to advise you on further temperature ranges.
The new pre-qualified Thermobox is equipped with high-performance vacuum insulation panels (VIP).
Using this refrigerated packaging, it is possible to realize extremely high cooling times with a low cooling input.
The robust EPP outer box and the removable inner tray make the Thermobox an ideal reusable solution.
|Outer measurements:||approx. 755 x 464 x 385 mm|
|Usable size:||approx. 640 x 349 x 285 mm|
|Usable volume:||ca. 63 liters|
|(Inside space for products, without cooling elements)|
Our standard box portfolio includes, among other things, three variable pallet boxes.
The usable inner volume ranges from 97 liters to 1,275 liters.
Choose between our SMALL PALLET SHIPPER with foam pallet feet, our EURO PALLET SHIPPER, standardized to hold a europallet, or our XL PALLET TRANSPORTER, which can hold a complete europallet.
The boxes are available at short notice and without any additional tool costs whatever.
In order to ensure the quality of your refrigerated products during shipment as well, Schaumaplast offers you the right cooling elements for the desired temperature range.
Gelpacks, foam bricks, thermal packs
Constant cooling for temperature-sensitive products.
Water-based gelpacks, foam bricks and hard plastic packs to fit our thermoboxes.
- Gelpacks – cooling cushions in individual sizes
- HDPE thermal packs – reusable hard shell packs
- Foam bricks – dimensionally stable cooling elements with foam core
- Melting points of 0°C or as a deep-freeze pack and gelpack at -21°C
PCM packs (phase change material)
Cooling elements with melting temperatures of for example +5°C or +18°C
PCM packs are deployed in thermal packaging alternatively or in addition to water-based cooling elements like gelpacks, thermal packs or foam bricks. Phase change materials exist with different melting temperatures in the minus and plus ranges. This is utilized in thermal packaging to display temperature levels which cannot, or only with great difficulty, be displayed with water-based thermal packs.
Our latest PCM packs with melting points of +5°C and +18°C, are among the most high-performance ones on the market.
Thermal design and engineering
We’ll develop your individual passive refrigerated packaging. Based on the exact thermal calculation, we work out how thick the thermobox walls need to be, the cooling input and the positioning of the thermal packs, foam bricks or gelpacks. The thermal calculation is carried out while taking into account the temperature limits of the product that must be adhered to, the required duration of transportation and the outside temperature profile. It is thereby based on the customer’s own temperature profiles or on standards like ISTA or AFNOR.
Schaumaplast’s thermal and constructive engineering shortens the development times for new refrigerator boxes and the configuration of existing thermoboxes.
The performance record of the newly developed thermobox, which is fitted with cooling elements, is then established in a climate chamber test. Schaumaplast also cooperates with ISTA-certified laboratories to conduct this test. The customer thus receives written documentation on the performance of their new thermal packaging.
