Temperature-controlled containers for the air cargo industry
Thermo King and Envirotainer, a market leader in active containers for air transport, have designed the Air100-RKN e1 and Air200-RAP e2 refrigeration units specifically to meet the critical shipping needs of the healthcare and aviation industries and overcome the industry’s main challenges: the need for safe transport and precise temperature control.
These air containers offer higher reliability, lower costs and better temperature control than CO2 containers. Autonomously running batteries and temperature settings can be maintained for over 100 hours in a typical shipment scenario and for a minimum of 30 hours in extreme conditions.
Unlike passive containers, the active Envirotainer units operate on batteries in-flight and on the ground, through an electrical connection that maintains the air-cargo container’s inside temperature while charging the batteries.
Designed for the Pharmaceutical Industry
The Envirotainer temperature-controlled containers enable precise end-to-end temperature control throughout every stage of the cold chain transportation cycle to ensure that the products being shipped inside are never affected by variable conditions.
The containers maintain product temperatures in the +2 to +8 °C range, controlled room temperature in the +15 to +25 °C range or at any chosen set temperature between ±0 and +25 °C in nearly any ambient condition appearing along your shipping routes globally.
A global network of skills and expertise
The refrigeration unit has been certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency for airworthiness and compliance with applicable regulations. Following Civil Aviation Authority global aircraft safety and maintenance regulations, only air-certified Thermo King dealers may maintain, service and repair the Air100-RKN e1 and Air200-RAP e2 units. Our technicians, compliant with EASA/FAA regulation, work globally with Envirotainer repair stations on site, ensuring peace of mind for the healthcare and aviation industries, and its customers.
