CSafe RAP

The CSafe RAP is the latest innovation in high-performing temperature-controlled containers delivering best-in-class payload protection for large pharmaceutical and life-science shipments.

Offering the largest payload capacity in the industry, the CSafe RAP leverages the groundbreaking heating and compressor-driven cooling technologies of the CSafe RKN with advanced VIP insulation to eliminate thermal risks to cargo traveling through extreme ambient temperature conditions on long-duration shipments.

Temperature controlled vaccines enhance lives

RAP Performance Features

  • Superior VIP insulation
  • Unique ARS airflow pathway, encapsulating payload with conditioned air on all sides to ensure optimal temperature mapping and operational efficiency
  • Advanced temperature management system (TMS) for autonomous control of innovative heating and compressor driven cooling systems
  • Array of 10 temperature sensors throughout cargo compartment for high level of redundancy in temperature and system control
  • Flexible composite exterior panels containing high-performance aramid fiber for enhanced container durability
  • Intuitive, easy-to-use control panel leveraging familiar, well-established CSafe RKN system, to minimize user training time and effort
  • User-selectable temperature set points from +4°C through +25°C, in 1°C increments

RAP System Advantages

  • Broad operating range maintaining payload temperature in extreme ambient temperatures (–30°C to +54°C)
  • Narrow temperature tolerance (±1°C at +5°C; ±1.5°C at +20°C)
  • Extended battery run time of >120 hours for typical shipments
  • Superior passive holdover time due to incorporation of best-in-class insulation technology (VIP)
