DeltaTrak®, a leading innovator of cold chain management solutions, features its newly enhanced FlashLink Dry Ice USB PDF In-Transit Logger at CAMX Composites and Advanced Materials Expo, A Virtual Event, September 21 to 24, 2020.
With its advanced built-in microprocessor, the new single use FlashLink Dry Ice USB PDF In-Transit Logger can record in a -82°C environment and is specifically designed for dry ice shipments of carbon fiber prepreg rolls and other TATS (time and temperature sensitive) materials. The loggers travel through the cold chain, continuously monitoring and recording temperature conditions during shipping, storage and handling. Integrated USB adapter and onboard software automatically generate reports in PDF and CSV format, with graph and data tables.
Not only does the improved design extend the measurement range down to -82°C, it includes a trip duration of 85 days and built-in software, making this a truly universal temperature logger. With a one-half AA lithium cell, the FlashLink Dry Ice logger has only 0.34 grams of lithium and qualifies as an Excepted Lithium Battery under IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations.
"These two new upgrades in the FlashLink Dry Ice In-Transit Logger are significant and offer even more advantage to our customers. The logger’s extended measurement range gives added reassurance of what conditions their TATS materials have been exposed either outside of cold storage or from the time they leave the manufacturer until they reach their final destination," said Frederick Wu, president and CEO of DeltaTrak. “And the reduced battery size means more loggers can be used in a shipment, while still staying within the limit of 5kg net quantity of lithium per package.”
Trip history is captured as PDF reports so users can easily share data globally, 24/7, with the option to use a secure account on DeltaTrak's ColdTrak Data Central cloud-based service. Reports are archived for analysis, audits, and to comply with regulatory guidelines. These records enable users to verify their TATS materials have not been compromised, reducing time spent re-testing questionable product and saving hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of TATS materials from being scrapped unnecessarily.
Customers are able to maintain complete records for traceability and shelf life, to help ensure quality and structural integrity of finished carbon fiber parts and products. For more information on the FlashLink Dry Ice USB PDF In-Transit Logger, please click here.
