Certis packaging system line
Mar 15, 2012 7:00 AM
ThermoSafe Brands, a business of Sonoco (NYSE: SON), has introduced Certis Silver, the latest offering in the Certis line of off-the-shelf packaging systems for temperature-sensitive products. Designed to the ISCsilver Ambient Temperature Profile, Certis Silver packaging systems offer reliable temperature assurance for moderate distribution environments.
The addition of Certis Silver effectively expands the Certis footprint to encompass a broad range of 2–8° C applications. Certis Gold systems, which are based on the ISCgold Ambient Temperature Profile, were developed to maintain the same strict temperature control seen with Certis Silver, but under more volatile shipping and storing conditions.
The patent-pending modular platform design common to all Certis Shippers provides plenty of flexibility for adjusting to specific needs. Standard Certis Shippers can be modified to meet requirements for temperature control, shipping durations, and payload sizes.
“A few simple modifications to the phase change materials or shipper system components is usually all it takes,” said Ken Maltas, vice-president of engineering for ThermoSafe.
Although ThermoSafe can design a custom shipper to precisely match a product’s requirements, off-the-shelf Certis Shippers are ideal because they reduce freight costs, accelerate speed-to-market, and increase operational efficiencies.
All Certis Silver systems feature Thermophase powered by PureTemp, a patented formulation of natural vegetable-based phase change materials for strict temperature control, easy packouts, greater efficiency, and smaller, lighter packages. ThermoPhase materials are non-hazardous, environmentally friendly and can meet a range of temperature requirements.
