Transport and storage qualification

Storage and transport qualification ensures uniform temperature and climate conditions. These are a prerequisite for maintaining the quality of your products during storage and the logistics process.

With expertise, measurement technology and documentation, we support you in your quality assurance measures in the area of storage and transport. From individual temperature distribution measurements and metrological tests to project coordination and conceptual design of the qualification project - we provide you with needs-based and cost-efficient service packages.

Qualification of storage areas

The core of the qualification of storage areas is formed by temperature and humidity distribution measurements, in which the performance limits of the air conditioning are determined with the help of additional stress tests. At the same time, critical points are revealed, which can then be permanently monitored and controlled in routine monitoring.

We qualify your cooling and storage areas for you:

  • Freezers, refrigerators and room temperature ranges
  • Incubators, temperature cabinets and cold rooms
  • Warehouses, high-bay warehouses, block storage and the like

Qualification of packaging systems

The qualification of passive temperature control packaging systems is based on the determination of the temperature distribution as well as the testing and determination of load limits.
