Cold Chain Testing

Welcome to the thermal packaging engineering department of QProducts & Services. We’re dedicated to developing & testing innovative thermal protection products for unique and challenging applications.

Your cold chain doesn't operate in a test chamber.
So that's not the only way we operate, either.

Live, Chamber and simulated testing by the QPS Technical Services Team

Cold chain testing is an evaluation of the shipping methods used to protect temperature-sensitive products during transport. Typically, the test simulates conditions that cargo may experience in transit to determine how long the containers and packaging can maintain the desired temperature.

 

Safe and proper delivery is critical for the food,beverage and pharmaceutical industries because manufacturers in these markets must ensure that their goods maintain certain standards at every step throughout the supply chain.

 

With strict regulations from governing organizations globally, the validity of passive thermal solutions comes under great scrutiny from a quality assurance standpoint. Our Technical Services division executes temperature testing and validation protocols with subsequent technical reports on the operational and performance qualification of our full line of products.

 

Headed by Peter Mirabella, lead contributing author of the Parental Drug Associations Technical Report 72 “Passive Thermal Protection Systems for Global Distribution: Qualification and Operational Guidance,” the Technical Services team is dedicated to ensure quality validation for all QPS thermal solutions..

  • Product One
  • Product Two
  • Trailer Ambient

Results

Live test results of an eight-day shipment of beer in a dry trailer environment. The entire load was protected by CargoQuilt, which kept the beer from freezing in below-freezing ambient temperatures. This shipment’s reached temperatures of 17 degrees Fahrenheit in the middle of Day 7, showing that CargoQuilt can protect temperature integrity even in extreme, unforeseen weather conditions.

As Unique As You

Every product and application requires different specifications. Our team has developed hundreds of custom solutions that are still sold today.

Real-World Proof

We're not selling you on theory. With live load temperature studies, we help customers establish ROI from the very beginning.
