Phase change materials, also known as latent heat storage materials, absorb heat during melting and release it again during crystallization/freezing. This allows the required storage temperature to be maintained for the duration of transport. Heat or cold entering the transport container is absorbed by the PCM during the phase transition from solid to liquid and vice versa.
While the use of water is limited by its melting point of 0°C, the va-Q-gels work within a standard temperature range of -65°C to +70°C thanks to the use of special paraffins and salts.
va-Q-gel +05G is a temperature battery using gelled PCM which provides an extra leak proof and extra light weight shipment in addition to the outstanding performance known for all our va-Q-gels.
As a rule, the innovative PCM technology enables the use of a universal va-Q-gel configuration for all seasons and climate zones. However, customer-specific solutions are possible as well. Possible areas of application are the temperature control of pharmaceuticals, biotech products, blood bags, etc.
