Here at Global Sensors, we provide sensors for a wide variety of needs. We work with many food companies, pharmaceutical companies, and other clients to handle their logistics and ensure that their products arrive safely, on time, and in great condition. One of the applications we can help with is dry ice monitoring, and in this article, we’ll be going over more about what this is and how it works.
- Dry Ice Packing- Before we talk about dry ice temperature monitoring, we first need to discuss dry ice packing. Dry ice is used in packing and shipping to keep perishable items, such as food products, cold. Unlike water ice, dry ice will not generate any liquid as it melts, but rather dissipate into carbon dioxide gas, meaning that the package will not get soggy. Dry ice freezes at a much lower temperature than water ice, which means it can keep items colder for longer. In addition, dry ice packing is used extensively to transport vaccines, which must be kept at very low temperatures at all times in order to remain effective.
- Dry Ice Temperature Monitoring- Moving on to the next point, dry ice temperature monitoring is essential for pharmaceutical companies, as those who work in vaccine transportation need to be able to tell if the vaccine exceeded its safe temperature at any point, however briefly. Remember that vaccines contain delicate proteins that can easily denature, so health care providers need to be able to verify that a vaccine has stayed within acceptable temperature limits before administering it to patients. Our team is here to help you find the right dry ice temperature monitoring equipment to provide that certainty and prevent any accidents from happening.
