Packaging Rooms

Packaging Rooms / Walk-ins


Parameter manufactures custom walk-in rooms for the packaging, pulp and paper industries that comply with ICH, ASTM and TAPPI standards. Each room is built to your exact specifications and our systems provide the precise temperature and humidity control required by both TAPPI T402 om-88 and preconditioning specification, TAPPI T 402. The system can automatically cycle between the two conditions.

Common conditions for our rooms are:

  • 23° C / 50% (Main TAPPI Spec.)
  • 35° C / 30% (TAPPI pre-conditioning)
  • 32° C / 90%
  • 5° C / 85%

TAPPI Tolerance is ±0.5°C and ±2% RH

Parameter is a leading global provider of environmental control rooms and chambers for the packaging, pulp and paper industries. We understand the importance of quality control in developing consumer products. As your single-source provider of planning, designing, building, testing, installation and long-term maintenance and validation, we are here to help maximize your control.

Custom Design

Parameter designs and manufactures rooms in our North Carolina facility to operate at the specific requirements and exact sizes you’ve specified. To ensure product integrity, Parameter assembles and thoroughly tests all systems prior to shipment and provides complete installation and on-site start-up instruction anywhere in the world.

Parameter is fully capable of upgrading any brand of existing rooms. Due to the flexibility of Parameter conditioning systems, we can also condition your existing rooms.

Rooms are built using modular insulated panels with either a 32 R-value (four inch) or a 40 R-value (five inch) to maximize efficiencies and uniformity. We can provide options for stainless steel construction, dryers, and air and water filters if needed.


Parameter room and chambers use a unique method of controlling moisture to attain unmatched levels of humidity and temperature control and uniformity. Unlike many other manufacturers, Parameter’s humidity methodology does not use vapor generators or atomizers as a humidity source. Instead, our dew point generating system achieves superior levels of humidity performance.

See an explanation of the Parameter system at Humidity Control 101.

The Parameter Smart Pad controller is a user-friendly system that provides control for the conditioning units. The Smart Pad is equipped with direct readings in both temperature and humidity, and features 60-segment programming for automatic cycling and also ramping and soaking excursions. High-low or deviation alarms are standard as well as a serial communications port. Take a closer look at the Smart Pad.
