CO2 or LN2 safety cooling

A power failure or device defect can result in thawing of valuable material sample and vaccines. Safety cooling protects against uncontrolled rises in temperature, by keeping the temperature in the freezer space constant at a freely definable value (0 to -70 ºC) using a controlled supply of LN2 or CO2. LAUDA Versafreeze deep-freezers are optionally available with safety cooling systems for refrigerants CO2 or LN2. LN2 is used if the storage materials cannot be allowed to come into contact with CO2. LAUDA Versafreeze safety cooling systems feature an integrated accumulator, which supplies the safety cooling system and alarm module with power.

Water Cooling

For operation on central water cooling and heat exchange systems, LAUDA also supplies deep-freezers in a water-cooled version. Instead of an air-cooled condenser, a heat exchanger is installed. It significantly reduces the heat emitted by the appliance into the ambient air, while expanding the permissible ambient temperature range. The water supply is controlled via the deep freezer.

Set of drawers for upright freezers

Instead of compartments with doors, the freezer space of the deep-freezer can be equipped with a set of drawers. These drawers are made of stainless steel and feature front panels made of 10-mm thick polystyrene insulating plates. Ball bearings and guide rails guarantee effortless, tilt-proof opening and closing.

Factory Certificate

The factory certificate documents the spatial and temporal temperature stability of the specific LAUDA Versafreeze deep-freezer in detail. All the required measuring data is measured at the factory using a calibrated measuring device and archived long-term. This appliance-specific certificate can be used by customers to verify the quality of the deep freezer and storage conditions if they have to comply with the special approval guidelines of the American FDA.

LAUDA Storage System

Optimal utilization of the usable volume can be achieved using racks for boxes, microtiter plates and DeepWell plates. The racks, made of stainless steel, are weight-saving and ergonomic. They ensure secure and well-organized storage of all sample materials. The capacities of the sample storage boxes are variable and can be adapted to different requirements. Three box heights and four grid dividers ensure optimal adaptation to different storage vessels. The boxes are made of cardboard with hydrophobic coating.

Data Logger

The battery-operated logger is used for external monitoring and recording of the interior temperature. The magnetically fixable data logger has a PT1000 temperature probe with a three-meter cable, which is fed into the freezer space via the device’s integrated feedthrough. The data logger has an adjustable limit value monitor with an acoustic alarm and offers a memory for up to 60,000 measured values with recording intervals from 1 sec to 24h (adjustable). The data logger is configured, and the data is read out directly on a PC using the USB cable supplied. Optionally, the data logger can be calibrated at a customer-specific temperature, and the calibration is verified with a certificate.
