Envirotainer RKN e1 container

Drawing on the benefits of the shape and size of the Envirotainer dry-ice container, the RKN e1 uses a different technology: compressor cooling and electric heating.

Designed for the extreme requirements of the healthcare industry, the RKN e1 container maintains product temperatures in the +2 to +8°C range, in the controlled room temperature (+15 to +25 °C) range or at any chosen set temperature within the operating range of ±0 to +20°C. The RKN e1 is a certified air cargo ULD (Unit Load Device), ensuring seamless handling throughout the supply chain worldwide. The unit can be carried on board the most common long-haul aircraft types.
