Tower Cold Chain has launched a new container for the transport of pharmaceutical products that require an internal temperature range of -80˚C to -60˚C.

The company said that the KTM42D reusable double-pallet container is suited for the transportation of vaccines, life science products and any other product requiring a stable temperature environment during transportation or storage.

“All of our solutions are developed to meet the needs of pharmaceutical manufacturers, 3PL providers and airlines,” said Niall Balfour, chief executive of Tower Cold Chain. “As such, the KTM42D has been designed to accept two full Euro pallets and maintain the stored contents at less than –60°C for over 94 hours.”

The container uses a passive temperature control system and has datalogging technology to provide confirmation of the internal temperature.
