Modula S.p.A introduces new storage solutions designed to maintain the cold chain and operate in controlled environments.
The three solutions developed by Modula are:
• Modula Climate Control: Controlled temperature and humidity storage systems
• Modula Clean Room: Storage systems for clean rooms
• Modula Dry: Low humidity (dry room) storage systems
Today, companies in all sectors need to invest in logistics, a fundamental driver which is often a critical success factor. It is well known that a warehouse is not merely a storage place but a real backbone of the supply chain, a catalyst of added value which, if well managed, can provide benefits to the entire chain, both upstream and downstream.
Those who work in sectors such as the pharmaceutical, food, chemical or electronics sector look for automated solutions that facilitate access to SKU codes while meeting the need to access a high number of items on the one hand and to make the most of the available space on the other. In addition, the regulations in these sectors are often stringent and specific equipment and structures are required for the storage of certain goods.
Designed for storing materials in environments subject to variations in temperature, where the accurate control of storage conditions is therefore necessary in order to prevent the interruption of the cold chain or deterioration of the stored materials. Some of the sectors in which this need is critical are the electronic, chemical, pharmaceutical, plastic and food sectors. Whether we are talking about manufacturing or distribution industries, safety is a top priority in warehouse design, and it is essential for products and/or components to be kept under strict control and constantly tracked.
Thus, Modula Lift was engineered to guarantee an efficient storage environment with controlled temperature and humidity conditions. Modula CC offers an operating temperature range from +2°C to +25°C (±1°C), with a maximum humidity of 50%.
Modula Clean Room
Most semiconductor manufacturers, hospitals, and chemical, electronics and pharmaceutical companies need storage systems capable of operating inside clean rooms while ensuring that the class of the room itself is not affected and preventing contamination of the stored materials.
Whether the materials are sterile instruments for operating rooms or dust sensitive components for semiconductor manufacturing, Modula Clean Room solutions offer conditions that comply with ISO 14644 standards and meet class 7 and 8 requirements.
To keep the quantity of particles in the air as low as possible, it was necessary to work on two main aspects: limit the production of dust by the storage system during operation as well as the deposit of any dust existing in the clean room on the surface of the storage system.
Just as there are materials sensitive to temperature and dust, there are also materials that suffer from the presence of humidity: thus, for the storage of these materials it is necessary to ensure that the relative humidity present in the environment is below a certain value.
The electronics, automotive and semiconductor industries are some typical examples of sectors in which these specific solutions are widespread. From a technical standpoint, solutions similar to those for temperature control are adopted when it comes to guaranteeing a relative humidity below 5%.
