Dry Ice Discharging Systems
Discharging Systems Play Key Role in Vaccine Distribution

Custom Systems Help Safely Transport Vaccine at Low Temperatures

With COVID-19 vaccines in distribution, never has dry ice played a more critical role than the one it plays in maintaining the vaccine’s integrity during high-volume transportation. Material Transfer is proud to put more than 30 years of experience in customizing discharging systems to work as an important part of the distribution supply chain.

Tapped to design and build customized equipment that would dispense dry ice into temperature-controlled containers, Material Transfer worked faster than ever before. Leveraging the talents of its experienced and committed team, Material Transfer produced discharging systems in just eight weeks. “To design and build customized equipment this rapidly, requires a level of knowledge and experience we are fortunate to have on our talented team,” said Scott Nyhof, president.

Up to the Challenge: Discharging Systems Perform to Higher Standards

Material Transfer is no stranger to the complexities associated with custom design and build programs.

For vaccine distribution, the following had to be addressed:

  • Reduce ice to pellet-sized consistency.
  • Meter ice evenly to protect each vaccine.
  • Monitor ice discharged during packaging.
  • Automate the process, integrating a:
    – Crusher
    – Scale System
    – Feeder
  • Implement controls to report diagnostics to vaccine manufacturer.
