New Energy Efficient -86ºC Freezer
11 Jan 2012The new SANYO MDF-U76V ultra-low freezer combines improved cooling performance with outstanding energy efficiency. The advantages include greater security for precious research or clinical samples, as well as lower running costs and added environmental benefits. A leading independent test institute in the Netherlands has measured the power consumption of the MDF-U76V at 13.77kWh/24hr. Based on current published data, this makes the MDF-U76V the most energy-efficient 700 liter -86ºC freezer on the market.
This latest -86ºC VIP upright freezer has been specifically designed by SANYO to meet the growing demand for energy savings, without in any way compromising freezer performance. In fact, cooling efficiency, insulation characteristics and door-open recovery times have all been enhanced through exclusive SANYO innovations: a capillary tube heat exchanger, next-generation VIP PLUS insulation, and the Cool Safe compressor. As a result, greater temperature uniformity throughout the freezer and faster temperature pull-down contribute to industry-leading sample security.
SANYO’s new capillary tube heat exchanger increases the overall efficiency of the freezer. By optimizing the available heat exchange areas, system reliability is also increased and energy consumption is cut. In addition to helping minimize energy use, the high performance patented vacuum panels together with high-density foam insulation enable SANYO VIP ULT freezers to provide up to 30 per cent more storage capacity than a conventionally insulated freezer, saving valuable lab space. These two SANYO-developed technologies allow the use of smaller, high-efficiency 750W Cool Safe compressors in the MDF-U76V, which use less energy and reduce heat output.
An optional water-cooled condenser is available for the MDF-U76V. This enables laboratories with a chilled re-circulating water system to reduce the requirement for air conditioning within the freezer facility, reuse heat energy elsewhere and achieve even greater savings.
