The Product Load Effect: How the Thermal Properties of your Product Affect Package Performance

With cold chain packaging design, much attention is focused on insulation and refrigerants as the primary tools in our toolbox. We creatively endeavour to balance resistance and heat capacity to keep a desired volume within acceptable temperature limits, using tricks of the trade (thermal breaks, free convection, phase change, etc) to meet even the most challenging requirements. Jerry Ferracamo, Inmark Packaging examines thermal design and system performance.
