Maintenance of any mechanical system is paramount to ensure optimal and consistent operational performance and service life of the equipment. At CSafe Global, we embrace this philosophy and made a commitment from day one of launching our active RKN container fleet that we would have the best maintenance program in the industry. Stories from life science companies indicated that they were experiencing over 30% difference in the performance and direct outcomes of older units when compared to newer containers. This difference in performance becomes problematic for the quality and validation departments who have to make difficult justification for the continued use of older containers, as the original qualification testing was performed on newer containers. Several life science companies have smartly, in fact, implemented policies of accepting only containers of a certain age (i.e. only a certain container serial number or higher would be accepted). This burden is not something we wanted to place on our customers. Therefore, it was critical to ensure that an active container that has been out in service for over 10 years would perform as well as a brand new container just released from our factory.
