Qualification and Validation Services
Developing a mobile refrigerated shipper for cold chain shipping is one thing; knowing it will maintain the right temperature under every possible scenario is quite another. The critical nature of your products demands reliable cold chain air transport capable of precise thermal management regardless of the circumstances:
- Overseas transit
- Extreme ambient temperature and wide temperature swings
- Remote point-of-use destinations
- Extended periods without available grid power
Although the AcuTemp RKN has gone through years of qualification testing and years of live performance (of which all data is available), there may a requirement for additional testing. CSafe’s sophisticated testing equipment and experienced technicians will work with you to rigorously test and qualify your particular shipping scenario to ensure it meets all your needs. Testing and qualification can be performed to various industry standards including ISTA or customer-defined profiles. CSafe also can provide testing in accordance with the majority of industry standards.
A member of the International Safe Transit Association (ISTA), AcuTemp has a sophisticated, ISTA-certified test laboratory at its Dayton, Ohio, facilities. This certification demonstrates CSafe’s commitment to qualification testing and to providing active pallet shipper solutions with superior hold time performance.
Advanced Qualification and Testing
CSafe can test and qualify your air transport shipper to any protocol. With its multiple environmental test chambers, advanced data acquisition systems and sophisticated control and analysis software, CSafe can confirm internal payload temperatures under widely varying ambient conditions. In addition, portable data acquisition systems allow CSafe to validate the performance of insulated shippers under actual field conditions.
All equipment is calibrated on a regular basis using National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) traceable instruments.
