Reach-in and Walk-in rooms are designed and built using experience gained in over 45 years of temperature control in incubator design.
Rooms will meet very high performance criteria at a competitive price. Temperature stability performance of better than ±1 °C and a humidity control of ±3% are typical.
Alarm and monitoring of the room parameters can be conveniently achieved using the LAM100 system
A NAMAS traceable calibration certificate is available with every temperature controlled room.
All rooms are constructed from interlocking insulated panels incorporating polyurethane foam insulation of between 60mm and 100mm thickness, dependant on the specification requirements. These panels meet or exceed European specifications for `fire retardation' and `surface spread of flames'.
Floors are normally insulated and given a nonslip finish for safety. Specialist finishes are also available. Some applications can be specified without an insulated floor.
Internal and external wall surfaces are usually of corrosion resistant steel finished in a food safe plastic laminate. Stainless steel is recommended when the room is to be humidified or possibly exposed to potentially corrosive vapours.
Hinged doors have an external lock and an internal safety release mechanism. Sliding doors can also be fitted to larger rooms.
Rooms with operating control from -20°C to above +40°C have all been successfully installed. Incubator rooms typically have temperature control to better than 1°C.
Microprocessor controllers automatically call for heating or cooling only as required, in order to achieve optimum temperature stability with maximum operating efficiency. (This is in marked contrast to other systems which constantly overcool and then have to add excessive heating power in order to achieve the required temperature).
For cooled incubator and refrigerator applications direct cooling is usually specified. Indirect cooling, where chilled water is circulated through a heat exchanger, is often the method of choice in humidified rooms. An over temperature safety thermostat is always fitted as standard.
applications requiring humidity control are commonly found in the
pharmaceutical and materials testing industries. A microprocessor controller regulates the ultrasonic fine mist humidity generator to increase the humidity within the room only as required. This gives the system outstanding accuracy and economy in use. The humidity generator has no moving parts, giving it improved reliability .
Rooms for use in seed germination and plant propagation will require specialised shelving and lighting control. Overhead lights are automatically switched on and off at predetermined times in order to simulate day and night conditions. Rooms for this application will always have cooling and dual temperature cycling as standard.
An extensive range of shelving is available for use in these rooms. Shelving can be made from stainless steel, aluminium, chrome plated wire, etc. dependant on user requirements.
Additionally, a wide selection of internal fittings can be supplied, including standard benching, sinks and fume extract units. Alternatively, The rooms can be supplied empty to take the customer's own fixtures and fittings.
This comprehensive range of humidity cabinets includes both active RH control and saturated salt models.
All cabinets have stainless steel interiors fitted with adjustable shelves. All SF models have sealed chambers making them suitable for humidities up to 98%. LT models do not have sealed chambers and their use is restricted to a narrower range of humidity control. SF models can have an outer door heater to demist the inner toughened glass viewing door. CFC-free polyurethane insulation provides very efficient thermal stability in all models. Two 12mm access ports are provided as standard.Specification - Ultrasonic Control Types

Monitoring and control of both heating and cooling functions is performed with great accuracy, and achieves typical temperature stability of ±0.5°C. The LED digital display allows the temperature performance to be easily verified. A digitally set over temperature safety cutout is fitted to all models.
Humidity Control (Ultrasonic Type)
All /RH models are fitted with an ultrasonic fine mist humidity generator located in the airflow. The microprocessor controller accurately monitors and adjusts the chamber humidity level. All RH models are able to dehumidify as well as increase humidity.
It should be noted that not all combinations of humidity and temperature are possible. Temperature and humidity performance varies according to the combination selected. Please contact us for advice on which model will best meet your requirements.
Typical Operating Range - for Model SFC3C/RH with ultrasonic humidifier
Humidity Control (Salt Solution Type)
Salts-type SF models rely on forced evaporation from trays containing known saturated salt solutions. This is a simple and reliable method of humidity control.
