ITAVIA’S PACKAGING SOLUTIONS


imballaggi-termici-va-q-proof

Itavia’s packaging solutions have been developed, produced and validated in compliance with international regulatory standards governing air, land and sea transportation.

These are va-Q proof® modular, state-of-the-art isothermal systems which guarantee and certify temperature control from 24 to 120 hours, as required.

The innovative, reusable isothermal systems which ITAVIA offers its clients are composed of vacuum insulation panels (VIP) and phase changing eutectic plates (PCM).

The Envirotainers are a ULD (Unit Load Device), certified for airborne cargo, which guarantee seamless management throughout the cold chain world-wide. Units can be loaded on board most common types of long-haul aircraft.

Some features:

  • Energy source provided by rechargeable batteries which can be recharged at standard AC power connection points;
  • Battery life of at least 30 hours in extreme conditions;
  • Batteries charge (from 0 to 100%) in 8 to 10 hours depending on type of container.

 

Thanks to va-Q-proof® modular isothermal systems, a single external container (in high density polyethylene) can be used as well as various types of exchangeable plates according to the temperature-control range (+ 2 / + 8 ° C; + 15 / + 25 ° C; -50 ° C) required.

Advantages:

  • Easy to set up;
  • Optimization of transport costs;
  • Tested for both winter and summer temperatures;
  • Reusable;
  • Zero deviations in the distribution phase
va-Q-proof® packages

The va-Q-proof® system is multifunctional and versatile, exactly like our clients’ requirements. There are 8 different sizes to choose from (11lt to 74tl of useful volume), 5 product temperature ranges (all with colour-coded PCM elements providing thermal energy storage) and 4 performance levels (from 48 to 120 hours) provided by a simple change of component.
Transport temperature registration devices are also used (data loggers) with a USB interface for the download of data and the creation of shipping reports.
They can contain up to 6 programmable time, temperature and duration alarms and are fully validated for the pharmaceutical and clinical trials market.

For passive-temperature airborne cargo, various types and sizes of VA-Q-TAINER containers are used, designed to meet the extreme requirements of the pharmaceutical industry (96lt, 1euro pallet/bulk loading; I euro pallet/1 US pallet/bulk loading; 2euro pallet/2 US pallet/bulk loading).  The containers ensure the temperature control of large shipments of temperature-sensitive products.

Envirotainers

For active-temperature airborne cargo, Envirotainers (temperature-controlled containers of various types (RAP/RKN) are used which adopt a diverse technology involving compressor cooling and electric heating. Designed for the extreme requirements of the healthcare industry, the various types of Envirotainers can maintain product temperatures in most of the climatic conditions to be found along worldwide shipping routes and ensure that shipments can be carried out at a stable temperature regardless of climatic conditions.

Refeer refrigerators




For the refrigerated transport of pharmaceuticals by sea, 20'/40' Refeer containers are used. To guarantee a controlled temperature throughout the journey, the Refeers can be hooked up to power bollards installed at port imbarcation terminals and aboard ships.
