CoolKit, an industry leader in the manufacture of temperature-controlled light commercial vehicles (LCV’s), will be exhibiting its new portable refrigerated containers and discussing its latest pharmaceutical distribution vehicle at the event on 7-8 October at the NEC in Birmingham.
The Burnley-based company secured sole rights to distribute the containers, produced by Italian manufacturer Melform, in the UK and Ireland earlier this year.
CoolKit will be showcasing the front-opening Biomed 32, with a 27-litres capacity, and the front-opening Biomed 140, with a 140-litre capacity.
Both products have a temperature range of -18 degrees Celsius to +40 degrees Celsius that can be set with the programmable digital controller to preserve the chemical and physical characteristics of pharma products during transportation.
CoolKit can supply a wide range of insulated containers ranging in size from 20 litres to 1,350 litres capacity. Comprising a heavy-duty polyethylene shell in conjunction with polyurethane insulation, the portable refrigerators are manufactured using a rotational moulding process which results in strong, light construction without corners, joints and welds.
The containers benefit from dual power inputs (12V or 24V DC and 240V AC) as standard, enabling use either aboard a vehicle or in a mains-powered structure. In addition, they are ATP-certified for the transport of perishable goods by road, NF-certified and safe to use in a HACCP environment.
Compliant with the cold chain at all stages and fully recyclable at the end of the operating life, they have been popular among CoolKit’s existing customers, as well as attracting new operators of non-refrigerated fleets.
The latest GDP-compliant pharmaceutical distribution vehicle produced by CoolKit features its integrated airflow system allowing +15 degrees Celsius to +25 degrees Celsius temperature control in the load space for controlled ambient goods, and +2 degrees Celsius to +8 degrees Celsius in a Melform temperature-controlled container for fridge lines.
