"With the addition of 4 new temperature chambers at the facility, we will be able to better serve the needs of all of our current and new customers for testing projects across the industry," Peter Johnson, Packaging Engineer at DDL East, said. "We also added 2 Kaye KL 32 Channel Validators calibrated to 0.25°C and 40 remote data loggers calibrated to 0.25°C which will provide accurate results, with a high degree of sensitivity, when evaluating thermal/temperature controlled packaging."
The amount of chamber space that DDL East has added includes;
- 1,200 cubic foot walk-in chamber, capable of up to 6 pallets, with a temperature of 5°C,
- 1,200 cubic foot walk in chamber, capable of up to 6 pallets, with a temperature range of 30° to 50°C for development projects
