CRYONOMIC® dry ice production machines and containers for refrigerated transport COVID-19 vaccine
The coronavirus has gripped the entire world for months. Now that the COVID-19 vaccine is in full test phase, light is gradually being seen at the end of the tunnel. While the COVID-19 vaccine is seen by many as the end of this pandemic, it will be the start of a global logistical challenge.
Once the COVID-19 vaccine has passed the testing phase, it will have to be distributed worldwide. To avoid degradation of the unstable molecules in the COVID-19 vaccine, the COVID-19 vaccine is best stored at freezing temperatures of -18°C to -80°C. These temperatures must sometimes be maintained for days. Dry ice, which has a temperature of -80°C, is the best choice for storing and transporting the COVID-19 vaccine worldwide. CRYONOMIC supplies the machines to make the dry ice and the containers to transport the dry ice.
How can CRYONOMIC help you tackle the logistical problem of the COVID-19 vaccine?
We supply CRYONOMIC® dry ice machines and CRYONOMIC® containers to the other European countries and other continents (we deliver to more than 70 countries). More info: https://www.cryonomic.com/en/products.
The flexibility required for the transport of the COVID-19 vaccine is one of our strengths.
CRYONOMIC® dry ice production machines
If you need to transport the COVID-19 vaccine on a large scale, you can opt for one of our CRYONOMIC® dry ice production machines and produce the dry ice for refrigerated transport of the COVID-19 vaccine on your own site. Each machine can make dry ice pellets (3mm) and dry ice sticks (10 or 16mm). To make dry ice you need a storage tank of liquid CO2 (this is the same CO2 as used for the food industry).
We assemble four different sizes of dry ice pellet production machines:
• CRYONOMIC® CIP-5XS: produces up to 35 kg/h dry ice
• CRYONOMIC® CIP-5S: produces up to 100 kg/h dry ice
• CRYONOMIC® CIP-5M: produces up to 180 kg/h dry ice
• CRYONOMIC® CIP-5L: produces up to 300 kg/h dry ice
CRYONOMIC® dry ice containers
Our CRYONOMIC® dry ice containers are developed for the transport and storage of dry ice. Because of their excellent insulation characteristics, they are also ideally suited for the cooled transport of COVID-19 vaccines with dry ice. Being a machine builder, we can easily modify these containers to meet the specific needs for the vaccine transport. These customized containers are already in use in different Vaccine Production Facilities.
Choose the most suitable very well-isolated CRYONOMIC® dry ice container:
• CRYONOMIC® CIC70: thick-walled container, net volume 70 liters
• CRYONOMIC® CIC151: thick-walled container, net volume 151 liters
• CRYONOMIC® CIC370: thick-walled container, net volume 370 liters
• CRYONOMIC® CIC550: thick-walled container, net volume 550 liters
CRYONOMIC® dry ice repacker
In addition, CRYONOMIC developped a semi-automatic dry ice repacker by combining the CRYONOMIC® dry ice production machine with a repacker for the CRYONOMIC® container. This way you can divide a large amount of dry ice for the transport of COVID-19 vaccine into smaller doses in no time.
