-86ºC Chest Freezers

Panasonic ultra-low temperature chest freezers maintain internal temperatures as low as -86°C (-123°F) at an ambient temperature of +30°C (86°F). They are ideally suited for use in hospitals and laboratories, in long-term preservation and storage of blood, specimens and components. With their new and improved design, they deliver energy efficiency and high performance cooling with precise uniformity and increased reliability.

    Main Features:

  • Superb Temperature Uniformity
  • Panasonic Compressor Technology
  • Energy Savings Design
  • Safety and Alarm Features
  • Microprocessor Controls
  • High Density Blown-In Foam Insulation

Unmatched Uniformity at -86ºC

icemountainPanasonic’s chest freezer has a higher-performance refrigeration system with a foam-in-place cabinet insulation maximizing interior temperature uniformity and protects against fluctuating ambient temperatures. The insulation used has two layers of rigid, foam-in-place polyurethane, placed together to form a double-insulation wall. This design prevents the insulation layers from distortion and cracking that might occur due to temperature differences inside and out. Frost and icing on the top edges and gaskets are prevented by utilization of a heated mullion, which recycles heat from the refrigeration system without affecting chamber uniformity.

Panasonic-Designed Refrigeration and Compressors

The compressors are designed by Panasonic specifically for rugged ultra-low temperature applications in a laboratory environment using HCFC-free refrigerants only. The high-performance refrigeration system with foam-in-place cabinet insulation maximizes interior temperature uniformity and protects against fluctuating ambient temperatures


Control and Alarm Features

The Panasonic-built microprocessor allows for comprehensive set-point, alarm, monitoring and diagnostic functions. In case of power failure or an irregular rise in temperature, a high capacity, rechargeable battery-operated indicator lamp and alarm will be activated. Optional CO2 and LN2 back-up systems are available and are self-activated when a power outage occurs. This equipment helps ensure that the contents will be protected in the event of any power failure or mechanical trouble.
