TEKNO-ICE Maintains uniform temperature * TEKNO-ICE Absorbs fluid leakage during transport * TEKNO-ICE Shipped dry to point of use (Keeps freight and storage costs down) * TEKNO-ICE Does not release water when thawed * TEKNO-ICE offers a cost-effective means to maintain product quality during shipment * TEKNO-ICE Reduces or replaces the use of wet ice in the packaging of fresh or live food * TEKNO -ICE Absorbs and retains unwanted fluids * TEKNO-ICE Improves the appearance and shelf-life of perishable products * TEKNO -ICE Helps to maintain humidity levels in packaged, temperature-sensitive products * TEKNO -ICE Improves the temperature control of packaged goods
This means that perishable, moisture- and temperature-sensitive products can be safely transported by air, or other transport medium, with full assurance that the product will arrive in premium condition. Also that the packaging will remain intact without affecting other cargo or the transporting vehicle.
TEKNO -ICE has been used successfully in the seafood (fresh and live product), meat, poultry, fruit, vegetable and cut flower industries, and in aircraft and shipping containers where moisture or condensation may pose a threat to product presentation or quality. Increasingly, TEKNO -ICE is being chosen for applications in laboratory, medical, veterinary and emergency services operations.
Description of Product & how it Works:-
TEKNO ?CE blanket sheets and packs are lightweight, when soaked in clean, potable (drinking quality) water for 15 ?30 minutes or even longer. Warm water may be used, if required, without detriment to the product and will quicken the rate of uptake. Shake off surplus water. Freeze to at least 20 F. (-7 C.) For most applications it is best to freeze TEKNO -ICE to the lowest possible temperature. Allow 16-24 hours in a properly designed commercial freezer for thorough freezing, provide an efficient refrigerant more effective than ice that keeps perishables cool during shipment . and, when thawed, does not release water into the package or the environment. TEKNO -ICE maintained a low temperature for twice the length of time compared to gel packs because of its ability to achieve "near total coverage of the product". The products should ideally be packed as close to 0°C as is practical, in insulated packaging, packed at 0°C and wrapped in TEKNO -ICE, maintained a temperature below 5°C for over 30 hours during extreme of Summer. TEKNO -ICE is made up of special plastic films/cloth sealed to form small cells. When preparing for freezing, take care to stack sheets or lengths of TEKNO -ICE with the film side down. All sheets should be placed with the film side against the cloth side of the one below. Do not place sheets with cloth against cloth, as they may stick together when frozen. A safe, non-toxic mixture is contained in each cell which, when soaked in water, swells. TEKNO -ICE is then frozen and used as an ice substitute to maintain the temperature of chilled product.
Tekno-Ice TM has 3 important attribute making it invaluable as an aid to temperature control in packaging – freeze factor, flexibility and fluid retention.
Tekno-Ice TM has excellent freeze duration capabilities when packed under proper conditions. Generally, you need pack less Tekno-Ice TM than ice and this means weight saving in the packaging process – pack more product / save on freight.
Because of its cellular construction, Tekno-Ice TM is inherently flexible – even when fully hydrated and frozen. The Tekno-Ice TM sheets can be folded or bent along the divisions between the sachet cells to match the shape of the product being packaged.
Tekno-Ice TM is formulated so that when it finally begins to thaw, it doesn’t release fluid into package, unlike wet ice. It holds the fluid within the structure, enabling full moisture control. When there is a need to conserve weight, stop fluid release, control temperature and prolong moisture retention, technology’s answer is Tekno-Ice TM .
