Laboratory Refrigerators and Freezers - explosion-protected (ex-protected)
Explosion-protected fridges or spark-free refrigerators and freezers for the laboratory have an interior which is free of sources of ignition. An ex-protected laboratory refrigerator is primarily used for the secure storage of chemicals and other easily flammable fluids. In practice most ex-protected laboratory refrigerators or spark-free devices have no sources of ignition in the joint-free interior and no automatic defrosting systems. They therefore meet the BGR 120 guidelines for refrigerators and freezers in the laboratory. In addition to these guidelines, laboratory refrigerators classified as having an ex-protected interior often also meet the ATEX 95 guidelines which contain fundamental health and safety requirements which must be observed by manufactures in the case of equipment in explosion-protected areas.
Laboratory Fridges and Freezers - fan-assisted
Fan-assisted refrigerators are often indispensable for use in laboratories, industries or practices where sensitive materials are stored. They have the advantage of allowing the frequently required rapid cooling of newly stored items through the flow of air in the interior as there is a high level of temperature consistency and uniform temperature and humidity distribution. Due to the additional fan in the cooling system a fan-assisted laboratory refrigerator uses slightly more energy and the price of acquiring a fan-assisted refrigerator is also higher. Fan-assisted fridges with an explosion-protected interior are used in many laboratories, where the storage conditions for highly-sensitive items must always be ideal.
Lab Refrigerators and Freezers - lockable
In addition to the well-known self-closing mechanism of the magnetic seal in nearly all refrigerators, in many cases the refrigerator should also be lockable. This does not only apply in business sectors such as gastronomy or for laboratories in schools, medical practices and hospitals, which have to protect their foods, chemicals, samples or medicines against unauthorised access, but also in research and industrial laboratories. We offer laboratory refrigerators with a lockable door and/or lockable drawers. Selected refrigerators are already fitted with a locking mechanism, which can be ordered as an accessory, or the top drawer is lockable. In a laboratory with a refrigerator for several users it is recommended to select a laboratory refrigerator with several lockers.
Laboratory Refrigerator - glass door
Most people are familiar with refrigerators with glass doors from supermarkets, or as bottle chillers in the gastronomy sector where food and chilled drinks are visibly displayed for the customers. As a rule such a drinks refrigerator is fitted with an insulated door and is often lockable. Glass-door refrigerators are now also employed in the health service, medicine and in laboratories. We offer various medicine and laboratory refrigerators with a glass door, optionally including a lock.
Lab Fridges and Freezers - accessories
Our robust laboratory refrigerators by renowned manufactures are characterised by their quality, reliability and safety. In addition, the cooling system allows individual parts to be changed or added. Depending on the refrigerator model and manufacturer you can order various replacement parts and accessories for your refrigerator such as different temperature sensors, temperature recorders, thermometers, stainless steel drawers, rollers, glass doors, locks, GSM modules, PC kits and many further accessories for the refrigerators and freezers on offer.
