Welcome to a new blog spot where it will be explianed the importance of a laboratory fridge.
Its function is to keep in a controlled environment (refrigerated space) any element, as vaccines, medicines, reagent or physiological samples to be preserved in perfect conditions of usability. The lower and more stable the temperature, the less chemical and biological activity.
These types of elements are very sensitive to certain low or high temperatures. It is only possible to safely retain them in a very precise and stable temperature range. It is also vital keeping them safely stored day after day for optimizing stocks as well as for the profitability of the laboratory. Having a precise laboratory refrigerator is essential to make the entire cycle optimal.
What are the uses of the equipment?
Although it may appear to be identifiable, the laboratory fridge has as a principal function to keep any type of substance properly. It will make that when performing the tests or administering medicines or vaccines, the results are those that are intended to be achieved.
These elements, which contribute greatly to the management and conservation of substances, should be considered essential and vital in any laboratory.
It is important to remember that the temperature must be kept low for this to work, therefore, it is necessary to know which temperature is suitable for what will be conserved and that the equipment will do it effectively.
The most used temperature ranges are between +2 and +8, and between -10 and -30 degrees Celsius.
What are the specials characteristics of a laboratory fridge?
One of the main characteristics of this type of fridge will be to have a wide surface to place the products. The entire equipment must have small dimensions, so space is optimized and all costs are reduced.
Another important feature would be to be able to count with settings for display of temperature alarms and the management of this with probe equipped with product simulation. It will allow acting quickly to not suffer product loss in the event of any failure in the power supply.
It will be also important to have epoxy-coated ventilated evaporators that allow a uniform distribution of air circulation inside the chamber, so all samples will be at the same temperature.
Having a security lock with key and a system of shelves based on steel wire grills with epoxy coating would also be two more elements that would come to complete the ideal laboratory fridge.
If it is also requested that the fridges can run on R600a gas and that the other components comply with ATEX014/34/UE regulations, they will become 100% useful and safe equipment, which will guarantee excellent results.
What should be considered for the proper functioning of your laboratory fridge?
Each of the fridges in a laboratory is of great importance. Thanks to them, substances of biological origin and reagents can be conserved. In this way, the analyses and studies carried out with them will be more accurate.
It is important to remember that the chemical and biological activity of the substances increases considerably with the temperature. Therefore, maintaining preserved samples is vital for any laboratory; otherwise the samples will alter their properties and will begin their degradation.
The cooling technique is produced through a phenomenon that has to do with the physics of heat transfer that is, it can occur by compression or absorption. The compressor cooler is often used in places where electricity is constant, while the absorption cooler is used when there is no electricity.
The instruments or equipment that can be found in a laboratory have a vital function in the processes, in fact, they are essential to the proper work of the laboratory.
Basic recommendations for use
When installing a laboratory fridge, it is necessary to follow a series of recommendations in order to properly maintain the equipment.
It is important to mention that, for the best functioning of the fridges, they must be located in a fresh and ventilated environment.
Our basic recommendation is to keep the fridge completely away from direct sunlight, to achieve optimal performance.
In addition, it should be placed at a minimum of 15 centimetres from the wall, to favour the circulation of air, thus ensuring a longer life of the refrigerator.
Coreco fridges: More than just a fridge
