Jan. 2009/July 2009 Testing
In these two tests we loaded the containers with six temperature monitors: three monitors were positioned at the front, rear, and mid-section of the trailers underneath our insulated cargo blankets. Then three more monitors were position at the same locations outside of our insulated cargo blankets.
With attempted to perform these tests in most extreme winter and summer conditions. We see that not only is the volatility of the temperatures greatly reduced, but so too are the minimum and maximum temperatures throughout the transportation process.
**all three monitored recordings were nearly identical so all three monitors were averaged and graphed as one
August 2010 Testing using 15 temp. monitors
In this highly specialized test our goal was to capture as many temperature readings as possible throughout the entire cargo container. Six monitors were placed on the walls several feet from the container’s ceiling to measure the ambient temperature, above the cargo insulating blanket. An additional 9 monitors were placed below the cargo blanket, insulated from the rest of the trailer. As depicted, the 9 monitors were broke into 3 groups, each with 3 monitors: left row, center row, and right row. Each row’s readings, along with all six ceiling readings, were averaged to form a 4 line graph showing the ambient versus insulated temperatures throughout the trip.
December 2009 Testing
In this test we measured 3 sections of the trailer: the front, the middle, and the rear. Among each section, temperatures were monitored in the top, middle, and bottom of the pallet. That is a total of 9 monitors underneath our insulating cargo blanket. One last monitor was positioned just above the insulated cargo blanket to measure the ambient container temperature.
December 2010 Testing
This test, conducted during some of the coldest days in December of 2010, shows that even up against the worst weather conditions, our insulated blankets keep your product safely insulated. Here is a graph that showcases the overall shipment results, along with two other very specialized tests that shed light on how small variations in your packing procedure can lead to huge temperature differences during shipment.
July 2010 Testing – Suspended Monitors
In this unique test we suspended 3 temperature monitors above an insulating cargo blanket inside a shipping container. The topmost monitor was mounted to the ceiling, the second monitor was suspended 18″ from the ceiling, and the 3rd monitor was suspended just above the insulating cargo blanket. Lastly, we added a 4th monitor just underneath our insulating cargo blanket. The results speak for themselves.
