U.K. Company Finds RFID Chemically Attractive
Industrial Chemical Ltd. has adopted a UHF system from CoreRFID to manage its reusable containers, helping the manufacturer to save money and meet environmental regulations.
Dec 02, 2015—
U.K. chemical company Industrial Chemicals Ltd. (ICL) is employing a radio frequency identification solution provided by CoreRFID to record when its reusable containers leave its facilities and are returned by customers, as well as track their condition. This has enabled the firm to improve efficiency, while ensuring that damaged or out-of-date containers are not used to ship chemicals. Workers are accomplishing this goal by using an RFID handheld with a built-in camera to read passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) Gen 2 RFID tags on the containers as they leave and are returned, and to take pictures of any damage.
The company is currently preparing to use the RFID solution to conduct full inventory counts of its containers.
The IBCs were a significant investment for the company, Sharpe says. However, they could be difficult to track as they entered and left its six British facilities, he notes, as well as its customers' sites.
