SmartCAE Dry Ice
What is better, having your product sit on dry ice or putting it on the bottom of the shipper, covered with dry ice? What about dry ice pellets vs. bricks? Which one will actually keep your product cold for a longer time period?
With the SmartCAE Dry Ice module you can create a digital twin of any dry ice shipper and analyze its behavior for any given temperature profile. Gain insights on the lifetime, sublimation rate of the dry ice, inside temperatures, and more. By applying different configurations of dry ice and payload, you can investigate effects, such as lab experiment vs. physical shipment, pod above vs. pod below payload, and more.
Any cold pack materials: water and any other PCM
Insulation materials: PU, EPS, VIP, ...
Compare packagings of different vendors
Run thousands of simulations in a few minutes
Include solar irradiance and thermal radiation
How it works
Set Dry Ice Configuration
Depending on your payload and dry ice position, the lifetime of your shipper will change. Try out several configurations, and see which one will maximize the lifetime.
You are undecided, whether pellets or dry ice blocks will be your best option? Simulate them both, and find out.
