Stainless Steel Glass Door Scientific Refrigerators

The 49 cubic foot Nor-Lake Grand Series stainless steel glass door refrigerator

The 49 cubic foot Nor-Lake Grand Series stainless steel glass door refrigerator

A new line of scientific refrigerators with glass doors help save energy while reducing temperature fluctuations that occur when technicians open refrigerator doors just to check inventory. Content monitoring and location is further simplified because the new Norlake Grand™ Series, now available from Tovatech, is equipped with switch-activated internal lighting. These units have all-stainless interiors, fronts and sides for easy maintenance.
Content Protection Features
Scientific refrigerator contents can represent sizable investments that can be lost if storage temperatures drift outside set parameters. The interval-adjustable auto-defrost Grand Series refrigerators have a digital LED microprocessor temperature controller, offer selectable Centigrade (2⁰ to 10⁰) or Fahrenheit (35.6⁰ to 50⁰), a continuous internal temperature display and offer content protection features including:
• Visual and audible hi/low temperature alarms
• Self-closing doors (with 90⁰ stay-open feature)
• Door open alarms after 30 seconds
• Magnetic door gaskets for a tight seal
• Door locks to prevent unauthorized entry

Another useful content-protection feature is an alarm alerting personnel to clean the unit’s condenser. This should be done at 6-month intervals to remove accumulated dust and thereby maintain peak performance.
The new Grand Series of glass door scientific refrigerators are available in single door 23, double door 49 and triple door 70 cubic foot capacities. Field-installed casters allow easy positioning then locking for stability.
Full instructions on setting up and caring for these scientific refrigerators are contained in the operations manual.

About Rachel Kohn

So how did an MIT Ph.D. end up selling refrigerators? When I figured out that a lot more scientists buy lab refrigerators than innovative leading-edge instruments. I hope that my many years of lab experience will help you find the right equipment for your work. Before co-founding Tovatech I worked in business development and project management at Smiths Detection, Photon-X, Cardinal Health, and Hoechst Celanese. And before that I spent 12 years as an R&D chemist at Hoechst Celanese and Aventis working on advanced drug delivery systems, polymer films and membranes, optical disks, and polysaccharides. Some day, eventually, I’ll make enough money to develop an innovative technology that will change the world. Read More
