IIR document

Combination of vacuum insulation panels and phase change materials in temperature-controlled containers.

Number: pap. n. 163

Author(s) : KACIMI A., LABRANQUE G.

Summary

Insulated containers equipped with phase change materials (PCMs) are used to transport health products. The performance of these solutions can be improved by increasing the insulation or the thermal capacity storage of the PCM.

Aqueous eutectics are not suitable for above-zero temperatures. The performance of conventional insulations is not sufficient for long transport durations (> 72 hrs) and for extreme temperatures. Vacuum insulation panels (VIPs) offer the best heat transfer coefficient. The suitable PCM provides the thermal storage in the required range. The combination of both allows to develop high performance containers with single configuration. Temperature-controlled solutions with single operating procedure are optimised and validated to transport health products in stringent temperature ranges for up to 168 hours, under hot and cold profiles.
