Cryopak Verification Technologies Offers Tips to Remember when Mapping Storage Areas for the Cold Chain!
On Wednesday Cryopak posted the third tip in Mapping Storage Areas for the Cold Chain.
Tip 3 - Take Note of the Temperature Empty and With a Load
Today, we're posting tip #4!
Tip 4 - Map After a Power Down Impact
Instead of waiting for the worst case scenario, perform your own power down test to see what the temperature would be like without the intervention of coolers, fans or other electronic cooling equipment. Take note of the temperature in 5 minute intervals. Take note of how quickly vehicle takes to get back to the proper temperature as well. Two tests could be done:
1) Turn off the reefer and see how long it takes for the temperature of the trailer to go over 8C.
2) Turn off the primary reefer and if there is a back up one see if it starts automatically. (Sometimes both primary and back up work simultaneously).
The same could be done not for a warehouse, but for a walk-in or any thermal equipment.
Check back on Monday, August 5 for Tip #5!
