Cryolux Dry Ice Packs, Ice Pack, Gel Packs, Cooler Bag, Esky & Ice boxes


As a result of a growing demand for storing and distributing temperature-sensitive products, Cryolux has been innovating in the cold chain space to overcome the challenges faced in this industry. Recently, the Cryolux Research team have succeeded at a few remarkable innovations which have broken several barriers in cold chain storage and logistics. Cryolux aims to make these innovations available to Market very shortly.

There are several components to a successful cold chain project but the key ingredients to make it work is a selection of the right type of refrigerant coupled with the right size and material of the insulated shipper. A refrigerant undergoes phase changes either from solid to liquid or liquid to gas. Based on their respective thermodynamic properties, it is used in temperature maintenance applications. Cold energy is usually managed using ice replacements. There are different types of ice pack; the most common ones are gel ice packs, Dry ice wraps, bubble ice packs, instant ice packs & Heat packs. Dry ice packs being the most sought-after refrigerant in recent times. The ice pack, commonly called gel packs, evolved from the disadvantages of ice. Whilst ice could only freeze to 0 degrees, the cold phase of ice was a big barrier in the cold chain industry. The basic principle of refrigerants is: the lower the phase change of the refrigerant, the longer they last.Surprisingly some of the leading gel pack manufacturers use water and hence they freeze only to 0 degrees C, as a result, they tend to melt fast. Gel packs evolved from water to sodium chloride (salt water), which had the ability to freeze at much lower temperatures, depending on the concentration levels. The higher the concentration of salt, the colder they can freeze and, therefore, the longer they stay frozen.

Dry ice, which is compressed carbon dioxide, sublimates at -78 degrees C and it has been widely used for commercial applications since 1924. Although it is relatively easy to manufacture, dry ice is classified as a “dangerous good for transport”, as a result, requires specialized transport systems and trained personnel to handle Dry ice. With rising cost pressures across all industries, there is a huge demand for cold chain products that can are not only cost-effective but also can work as well as or better than dry ice.

Cryolux manufactures several types of ice packs available to suit different applications. The most common use of ice packs is the cold transport of perishables like food and pharmaceutical products. The Innovative Dry ice packs, from Cryolux, are easy to store and transport and can be activated and frozen on demand, Hence they are far superior to any of our regular gel packs. Cryolux also manufactures ice bricks, ice wraps, bubble back gel packs, instant ice packs, Instant Hot packs, hot & cold Ice packs & dry ice sheets to name a few. Most of these are in direct contact with food and are hence Food Grade and manufactured with the US FDA Approved Materials. Cryolux also manufacture a range of Phase change material gel bricks commonly known as PCM Gel ice bricks to suit temperature sensitive applications, For Example, if a laboratory has to transport a specimen at -15 Degrees, They would use one of our Cryophase -15 or -20 C PCM ice pack which can help maintain the temperature of the specimen at the desired temperature, of course keeping in mind the suitable choice of the insulating medium which could be a either a cold chain shipper like an insulated shipping box or an esky ice box. Cryolux Group has helped several Food and Pharmaceutical companies with their cold chain management and helped solve some of their complex temperature sensitive logistics.
