Requirements (What matters):

  • 15ml vials of liquid medication, boxed and palletised (Load is approximately 1 m3)
  • Goods to be transported by air freight
  • Journey is approximately 77 hours – Melbourne to Chicago (via Hong Kong)
  • The temperature of the insulated goods must not exceed 30°C or drop below 0°C

Challenges (Issues faced):

  • Environment – exposure to extreme high and/or low temperatures may cause product excursions

Solution Scoped:

  • InsulCap® thermal blanket (pallet cover), with InsulBase thermal pallet liner
  • Option 1 – InsulPlatinum® maximum performance thermal barrier material (double foil)
  • Option 2 – InsulGold® high performance thermal barrier material (single foil)

Outcome Achieved (Results delivered):

  • InsulCap® solutions of two material types demonstrated temperature profiles that were
    well within the required temperature range, with the product temperature inside the
    system not exceeding 30°C or dropping below 0°C.
  • When exposed to a maximum environment temperature of 34.5 ⁰C for 5 hours:
    • the InsulCap® constructed from InsulPlatinum® material controlled the internal product temperature to a maximum of 24.5 ⁰C.
    • the InsulCap® constructed from InsulGold® material controlled the internal product temperature to a maximum of 27.5 ⁰C.
  • When exposed to a minimum environment temperature of -7 ⁰C for 4 hours
    • the InsulCap® constructed from InsulPlatinum® material controlling the internal
      product temperature to a minimum of 7.0 ⁰C.
    • the InsulCap® constructed from InsulGold® material controlled the internal product temperature to a minimum of 5.0 ⁰C.
