The best heating/cooling method for shipping live animals
The new industry standard for shipping live animals. These are the best way to ship perishable products hands down. Phase 22 panels are designed to hold temperature around 72F (or "22" Celcius) over extended periods of time while the phase change material is activated. To activate Phase 22 Products for hot weather, we refrigerate it overnight before adding it to the shipping container. To activate Phase 22 products for cold weather, we submerge in hot water for 30 minutes or so before placing it in the shipping container. These are reusable, so they are a great value. Unlike ice packs, these change from soild to liquid at around 72F!
Non-Toxic Ice Packs
Inexpensive ice packs for perishable shipments
These packs are what we use during summer months to ship plants & microfauna to our customers. Manufactured at NEHERP using 100% non-toxic ingredients, and ink-free! Appropriate for shipping plants, microfauna, and feeder insects, but please use Phase 22 (above) for live animals. Each pack is approximately 5in X 5in (+/- 1/2in). We made over 4,500 of these packs in the past year, and have had nothing but good results & feedback.
Uniheat 40 Hour Heat Packs
The same great heat packs we use in cold weather at NEHERP!
Specially designed heat packs that are perfect for shipping live animals & other perishables. These packs activate 40-50 minutes after opening, and steadily warm up to reach peak temperature in 15-18 hours. We've been using these heat packs for 4 years running at NEHERP to ship plant orders to our customers during winter, and they are our favorite pack for the money!
