Dayton, Ohio USA, February 2012

AcuTemp® Thermal Systems, a manufacturer of active and passive temperature-controlled solutions for the transportation of life-saving and life enhancing products, announced the expansion of their family of packaging solutions. The newest addition to the line of AcuTemp® frozen shipping solutions focuses on substantially reducing the amount of dry ice required for shipping. AcuTemp’s expanded frozen solution offering is comprised of 27 payload sizes, with durations that range from 24 to 192 hours. The AcuTemp® design allows for a significant reduction in the amount of dry ice needed. Thermal testing has shown that for the same payload size and duration, there is an average reduction in dry ice required of 88% over EPS and 67% over PUR. This results in substantial supply chain savings.

There are many challenges associated with dry ice including handling, cost, and availability. Many airlines and forwarders are decreasing dry ice capacity, increasing the possibility of dry ice shipments being “bumped”. However, shippers of frozen products want the consistency of dry ice. The AcuTemp® designs provide the performance required by shippers while reducing total supply chain costs.

These significant dry ice reductions are possible because AcuTemp® packaging utilizes ThermoCor® vacuum insulation in a patented molded design that results in less dry ice required, smaller packaging size, longer hold times, larger payloads and superior temperature control, resulting in lower overall supply chain costs. In addition to thermal efficiency, the lightweight and less bulky features of ThermoCor® allow for a high degree of design flexibility.

AcuTemp® Thermal Systems designs and manufactures reliable thermal management products to maintain valuable temperature-sensitive payloads at The Right Temperature® during transit. Offerings range from small passive shipping boxes to large active shipping containers equipped with sophisticated data-logging capabilities. AcuTemp® is the world’s largest producer of active mobile refrigeration systems for the shipment of temperature-sensitive materials. The Company also offers advanced thermal testing and package validation services in its ISTA®-certified testing laboratory. Through CSafe, a joint venture with AmSafe, Inc., the company’s flagship product, the AcuTemp® RKN, is the first and only FAA approved active temperature-controlled air container and is available for lease through leading global airlines and freight forwarders. for more information. AcuTemp® products are marketed directly and through a worldwide network of distributors to businesses with temperature-sensitiverequirements in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, public health, defense and transportation /logistics markets.
