London, United Kingdom, 2008/10/01 - France based Coldway, specialist in thermochemical solutions, will present its range of cooling containers, which use an innovative closed-circuit thermochemical process, at the Medica trade fair, to be held in Düsseldorf from 19 to 22 November.
Coldway of France, at the Medica trade fair (Booth 3H51), to be held in Düsseldorf from 19 to 22 November 2008. Coldway is looking for distributors in the medical sector.
Coldway’s cooling containers ensure that a regulated internal temperature prevails with no need for an electrical connection. The containers are recharged via a temporary electrical connection, while there is full traceability for both the temperature and for the lid openings and closings.
The Alcatherm (volume ranging from 7 litres to 45 litres in the mobile version) comes in a certified triple-packaged casing for the transport of Class 6.2 (ADR) infectious products. It complies with temperature standards for the transport of thermo-sensitive products and will sound an alarm to signal high and low temperatures, or if the container is overturned. The Alcatherm has an integrated inside-temperature traceability system that also logs lid openings and closings.
The Coolsplit has a 75-litre or 135-litre isothermal reservoir, which is fully detachable from the cooling array, in order to facilitate handling and ensure cold-chain continuity up to the point of delivery. It complies with temperature standards for the transport of thermo-sensitive products and has an integrated inside-temperature traceability system that also logs lid openings and closings.
Other models with volumes ranging from 300 litres to 1,000 litres are also available for use in manufacturing and in the logistics industry.
Thanks to a patented, reversible thermochemical process that requires no consumables, Coldway’s temperature-controlled containers ensure cold production when the user requires it and maintain products at the required temperature for up to 12 hours (depending on the model). The reversible process can be recharged by plugging into the power supply for four to five hours, depending on the model.
This process is more economical than using refrigerated vehicles. It is also environmentally friendly as no consumables are required, nor any fluids that damage the ozone layer, such as CFCs, HCFCs or other substitutes banned by international agreements. As it has neither a motor nor a compressor, the cooling container is silent, requires little maintenance, and is not subject to wear and tear. A variety of ranges provide controlled temperatures ranging from 30°C to +37°C, for volumes ranging from 7 litres to 1,000 litres. Every unit is certified to EFS standards (NFX15-140).
Coldway (coldway.fr), which is headquartered in Pia (near Perpignan, in southern France), was founded in 2001 by two engineers from CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research), who are experts in the thermochemical process and in refrigeration engineering.
Coldway offers several ranges of stand-alone containers for the handling and transport of thermo-sensitive products. The company’s R&D department also develops customised products and can integrate its technology into industrial solutions. Coldway’s products are used in hospitals, blood-donor centres and medical laboratories, and are also used by specialists in the transport of medical products.
Coldway will take part in the Medica trade show (Booth 3H51), which will be held in Düsseldorf (Germany) from 19 to 22 November 2008.
