Sofrigam Launches iCold and Partners with Cold-way
2017/06/23
During SITL, an international transport and logistics event held recently in Paris, France-based Sofrigam presented iCold, an innovative semi-active insulated container which enables temperature-sensitive products to be tansported at a selected and controlled temperature of 0°C to +15°C with no external power source, for a period of 12 to 48 hours. This solution was developed in partner-ship with Coldway, a French company specialized in the production of cold using thermochemical processes employing a natural refrigerant. The process relies on a basic principle: producing cold from a chemical re-action between ammonia and salts. The system comprises a reactor containing the reactive materials of salts and graphite, an evaporator which contains liquid ammonia, and a connecting valve between both tanks. When the valve is open, the ammonia vaporizes inside the evaporator and produces cold without a power source. This internationally patented invention involves a clean thermo-chemical reaction, with no consumables and without continuous use of external power.
