Cool Containers expands
production, test capacity
Mar 13, 2012 10:31 AM
Cool Containers LLC, based in Marietta OH, develops and manufactures controlled-environment systems for secure transport of high-value products. Its first product, the PharmaPort 360, is an actively controlled container for pallet-size loads of pharmaceuticals, and is available through the UPS Temperature True service.
The company has made recent investments to expand its environmental testing capacity threefold. This has been done to keep pace with production of its active containers, accommodate qualification requests from pharmaceutical customers, and for use in activities related to new product development. Construction is on schedule for completion by end of March 2012.
The new environmental rooms are designed to accurately maintain a range of controlled temperatures, can reach extremes from –40º to +60º C, and are used for extensive testing of all container units coming through production.
Carl Hauptmann, director of manufacturing, said, “It’s part of our quality manufacturing procedure to put each of our active containers through rigorous ambient test profiles to ensure that we meet and exceed our specifications. We confirm that every one of our containers can maintain cargo at the set temperature in simulated environments that far exceed what they would normally experience during transport.”
During the introduction of the PharmaPort 360, pharmaceutical companies have requested customized qualification data in addition to the third-party test reports available from UPS.
