ability to produce a specific amount of dry ice, necessary to cover customer's process needs,
no need to store too much dry ice, which starts to sublimate just after production,
pelletizer can be rented (customer is not obliged to purchase it).
Transport in the isothermal containers
Retailers & wholesalers distribute food across the country from one or more logistics centres. Air Liquide offers a convenient system for the transport of any quantity of food products in refrigerated or freezing conditions.
The system is very simple. Isothermal containers with special cartridges, in which dry ice is injected, are used to transport food products. Containers maintain a constant temperature during everyday operations, including long-distance transport.
The quantity of carbon dioxide injected is closely related to the amount of product in the container, distance to the shop, delivery time and weather conditions.
The system guarantees:
a perfectly maintained cold chain up to the final customer,
a logistic flexibility thanks to an autonomous source of cold that enables deliveries at any time in non-refrigerated vehicles,
savings thanks to an optimization of dry ice quantities.
