Thermo King, which is represented in Ireland by Ballinlough Refrigeration Ltd., has launched the ColdCube Connect Flex, the latest addition to its portfolio of flexible, portable cooling, freezing and heating mobile containers.
The new Connect Flex models come with an integrated battery, which offers at least 12 hours of autonomous cooling capacity, fully independent from the vehicle battery.
Thermo King ColdCube Connect Flex containers are a lightweight, durable, flexible solution available in three sizes that fit a standard van or truck. The containers allow customers to ensure an autonomous temperature controlled environment in non-refrigerated vehicles and fulfill a variety of transport and storage needs including Pharma, retail, catering and last mile deliveries.
Bluetooth connectivity enables customers to wirelessly control the temperature set-point and provides full visibility of temperature and status without opening the container. For additional connectivity, ColdCube Connect Flex comes with a preinstalled temperature sensor, compatible with Thermo King telematics systems.
“ColdCube containers provide a simple and flexible way to ensure that Pharma, fresh or catering temperature-sensitive products are moved and stored in the right, controlled environment,” said Oscar Sanz de Acedo Pollan, aftermarket engineering leader at Thermo King.
“The new Flex models, thanks to the integrated battery and autonomous operations, give customers even more flexibility. They can now store the container outside the vehicle whenever needed, without looking for an external power source to connect to.”
ColdCube Connect Flex Pharma certified models offer powerful, automatic cooling, freezing and heating operation reaching temperature ranges from -30 degrees Celsius to +30 degrees Celsius depending on the version, and efficient internal ventilation. This meets the stringent requirements for secure transport of biomedical products, like blood bags, blood tubes, vaccines and biological samples in the most demanding environment conditions.
