Phase Change Materials (PCM)

Phase change Materials (PCMs) are formulations that enable the storage of energy in thermal form i.e., hot or cold energy. These specific formulations freeze and melt at specific temperatures, thereby maintaining precise temperatures in insulated boxes/containers without any external energy. Therefore PCM technology is a great way to replace your traditional reefer and increase your options of keeping products temperature controlled in an ambient truck, 3-wheeler, or bike.

Tessol’s PCM ranges from +18 deg C on the positive side to -33 deg C on the negative side. 

PCM Cartridges, Eutectic Plates (HDPE Bottles)

A common way of using PCM technology is through encapsulation in HDPE bottles. Tessol has a wide range of standard options available for the customer to choose from. Some of the salient features of Tessol’s rigid ice packs are:

  • Cartridge caps are Ultrasonic welded and covered with an additional cap to prevent leakage in rough handling conditions
  • All PCMs have been field tested for thermal stability above 1000-2000 cycles
  • We only use virgin High-density polyethylene material to withstand industrial handling
  • Shapes and groves allow airflow throughout the surface

IndiWRAP – Gel Packs and PCM Pouches

IndiWRAP is the best way to deliver chilled and frozen food cost-effectively. IndiWRAP, powered by our very own ‘Phase Change Material’ technology, is a lightweight encapsulation and uses a special version of the PCM that is designed to be used for a few freezing/melting cycles. This makes the solution cost-effective while ensuring your temperature performance is not compromised.  

  • Fresh, chilled, and frozen range of PCMs
  • Available in sizes from 50ml to 450 ml per pouch
  • Multi-cell pouches are available based on specific requirements – ideal for providing adequate coverage of the product
  • Its applications range from last-mile delivery (30-60 minutes) to D2C or B2B movements lasting up to 72-96 hours.

Rotomolded (Insulated) Boxes and Bags

Tessol has built a range of Insulated carriers – Rotomolded LLDPE-based boxes and insulated bags with food-grade lining combined with specially designed PCM cartridges / indiWRAPs to replicate a specific temperature performance for the customer. Available in different sizes and temperatures, you can use these for easy cold-chain transport of your products in any dry/ambient vehicle.

  • Wide range of sizes from small 3 liters to 1000 liters
  • Can maintain temperatures up to 48 hours in high ambient conditions
  • Bags design is collapsible to ensure reduced space for storage and ease of empty reverse logistics
  • Custom branding/sizes can be done with minimum order volumes

PlugnChill for your Trucks

PlugnChill is a plug-and-play technology that runs on proprietary thermal batteries and chargers. It is vehicle independent and does not depend on fuel. The batteries are charged from a regular power point for 5-6 hours and maintain desired temperatures for 10-12 hours. The application relies on advanced phase change materials, heat exchangers and chargers with advanced controls.

Blast Freezer

Tessol Blast Freezers are specifically designed for faster freezing of PCM cartridges and indiWRAPS / gel packs. Tessol Blast Freezers are industrial machines designed to be rugged and energy-efficient and available in chilled and freezer configuration.

Key Features:

  • Rugged industrial container-type body construction for warehouse applications
  • Empty pull down from +40o C to -20o C and -38o C in 15 and 30 mins respectively
  • Flexible customizable racking, shelving & internal cladding (in SS304) based on product & application
  • PLUG and PLAY portable units with ease of installation and movement
  • Available in purchase and rental models both
