Solution overview

The KTM31 Tower low US pallet is an easy to load half-height US pallet circular supply chain solution providing 120-hour product protection for -20°C (frozen), +5°C (refrigerated) and +20°C (controlled room temperature). Using phase-change technology it offers complete flexibility of use and requires no external power nor human intervention when operating within your supply chain.

Data Logger
Data Logger

Data loggers are built into all Tower containers, logging internal temperatures from -95°C (-139°F) up to 50°C (122°F). Users can get text or email notification of temperature excursions, as well as automatic data downloads throughout the transit (in-flight excluded) from loggers within range of the CX Gateway device. The loggers are built to FDA, USP, EU and WHO standards.

Product Testing
