What Temperature Should Laboratory Refrigerators And Freezers Operate At
Posted by Global Lab Supply on June 17th, 2019
Choose from a complete line of refrigerators, freezers, and combination refrigerator/freezers designed for general laboratory use. Capacities range from 1.7 to 20 cubic feet. Refrigerator temperatures range from 2° To 7°C (36° to 45°F); freezer temperatures from -26° to 0°C (-15° to 32°F). Some models are available in either 120 volts/60 Hz or 240 volts/50 Hz. All models come with a 24-month warranty.
Although many laboratories use typical consumer refrigerator/freezer units for storing samples and chemical supplies, there are a number of instances in which a unit designed specifically for the lab environment is necessary; for example, flammable substances such as solvents can ignite if a kitchen-designed fridge or freezer generates a spark when switching on. Laboratory refrigerator freezers incorporate design and technology elements that facilitate lab work. For example, manual defrosting helps the user control freezer burn, dehydration, and improper thawing. A laboratory refrigerator freezer can also come with sophisticated digital temperature control mechanisms. This permits user-defined temperature set points, complemented by alarms that indicate when the unit is over or under temperature, or if the door is ajar. These laboratory refrigerator freezers are generally more durable than their consumer counterparts, and meet stringent regulatory requirements such as OSHA CFR1910.308.
