Product News: New Energy Efficient Thermo Scientific TS586e Freezer

08 Oct 2010

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. launches its new energy efficient Thermo Scientific TS586e -86 °C freezer. As a CE-certified and WEEE directive-compliant freezer, it employs CFC-free and HRC-free hydrocarbon refrigerants, making it extremely environmentally-friendly. By combining recyclable components and reducing harmful emissions, it is an ideal addition to any ‘green’ laboratory.

At the -80 °C setpoint, an industry leading low energy consumption of 10.7 KWH/day can be obtained, making the TS586e an extremely energy-efficient option. By reducing power consumption and thus, associated costs, you could improve of laboratory efficiency. With a noise level of less than 49 dB(A), quiet operation is easily achievable, allowing convenient placement within the lab. Featuring a powerful refrigeration system with water-blown foam insulation, rapid cooling is provided, and fast response to door openings provides unmatched long-term performance. As a result, even the most precious samples are maintained in a safe, reliable and precisely controlled ultra-low temperature environment.

To ensure that temperature levels are accurately maintained, the Thermo Scientific TS586e incorporates an intuitive user interface, where temperature alarm setpoints are easily specified. Any deviations from these limits will incur an audible and visual alarm, to ensure that optimal conditions are maintained throughout. Additional alarms alert users to factors that may influence freezer performance, including high ambient temperature, low voltage, performance deviation and low battery. The intuitive microprocessor control system offers comprehensive remote monitoring capabilities, incorporating an RS232 interface for the quick and easy download of data to a PC for further analysis. User flexibility is provided with the optional incorporation of a CO2 back-up system, chart recorder or water-cooled condenser, whilst the ergonomically designed handle ensures that minimal effort is required during freezer opening and closures, reducing the occurrence of any repetitive strain injury.

The new Thermo Scientific TS586e -86 °C freezer is only available in Europe.
