Mokon Provides Advanced Temperature Control Solutions in COVID-19 Vaccine Development

BUFFALO, N.Y. (September 2020) – Mokon, an international leader in high-quality circulating liquid temperature control systems, has partnered with multinational medical, pharmaceutical, and bio-technology companies to provide temperature control solutions for critical processes in the development of essential medical aid. Mokon is also participating with companies directly involved with “Operation Warp Speed” which was initiated by the US Federal government to facilitate and accelerate the development, manufacturing, and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics. Mokon is proud to be part of the unprecedented work these companies are doing.

Mokon's Pura-Therm and other systems control temperatures for vaccine and medicine production utilizing vessels, mixers, fermenters, bioreactors, and a wide variety of packaging equipment. Depending on the application, Mokon water, chiller or combination heating/chilling systems send heated and/or chilled fluid through a jacketed wall or heat exchanger to control the temperature of the critical materials being processed. In addition, Mokon systems work with upstream research and development companies involved with growing and controlling the life of cultures leading up to the development of vaccines.

Temperature control accuracy and reliability is a crucial function for producing a quality product and Mokon is the trusted source for advanced process temperature control. Process temperatures range from -29°C to 371°C (-20°F to 700°F) in many different industries including beverage, biotechnologies, chemical, cosmetics/personal care, food, industrial hemp, pharmaceutical/medical, plastics, packaging and much more.

“Mokon is proud to serve as an integral part of COVID-19 vaccine production” Rob Kennery, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, says. “Through this uncertain time, Mokon has ensured the safety of our employees, while maintaining the trusted service and supply of product for our customers.”
