Heat treatment

Embalex, S.L. is listed in the Official Register of Wooden Packaging Operators who comply with ISPM No. 15, according to the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fishing and Food Phytosanitary Conformity Programme for wooden packaging used for export, under entry number ES-08-0361.

Created by the FAO, the International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM) No. 15 regulates wooden packaging used in foreign trade and establishes phytosanitary measures for reducing the risk of introducing and spreading plant-based plagues and diseases across international borders.

Heat treatment (HT) works by maintaining a specific time/temperature curve so that the centre of the treated wood remains at a minimum temperature of 56°C for a minimum period of 30 minutes. This process takes place in chambers designed especially for this purpose where the temperature of the wood is measured using sensors on different pieces of wood in different parts of the chamber. Hot air is circulated around the chambers in order to keep the air at a constant temperature. This system eradicates any insects living inside the wood that could cause an outbreak of disease or plague.

By heat treating all wooden packaging and obtaining the corresponding logo, Embalex certifies that its wooden products meet the conditions and requirements established under the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC).

Presentation of our new VGM measurement system in SIL 2017
SIL 2017
On June 6th, 7th and 8th, the International Logistics and Maintenance Fair (SIL) 2017 will be held in Barcelona. Once again, at Grupo Embalex, we will be present at the show to bring our innovations to the sector.

In particular, this year we will introduce our new VGM measurement system, which allows weighing any type of cargo and extracting the Verified Gross Weight (VGM) label attached to the container. This process, together with the packaging and the rest of logistics stages is carried out at the same point, which is why it optimizes processes reducing costs and dead times.
In addition to Embalex, the rest of the group's companies, C&S Packaging Supplier, will also participate in the fair with the Embatuff isothermal insulation, which has become a reference product throughout Europe; Gesica, which continues to grow with its services for the logistic sector of trincaje of goods and loads; Or Noray Containers Services, which has established itself as a leader in the rental and sale of both maritime and land-based containers.
