1260L Laboratory Refrigerator Product Application

Pinnacle has developed a top mount fan forced 1260 litre Premium Laboratory Refrigerator that goes above and beyond with quality and functionality being offered by other manufacturers. The Premium Laboratory Refrigerator is designed to maximise the internal storage space with intelligent shelving design. The latter are made of plastic coasted wire and sitting on clips made of hard plastic. The Premium Laboratory Refrigerator has an adjustable set point of 2-10 degrees Celsius and the high and low alarms are adjustable to suit the running conditions. The refrigerator is best suited to laboratories, universities, hospitals and clinical trial organisations that have a high turnover of product. Pinnacle’s Premium Laboratory Refrigerator has been designed to run at a higher ambient temperature of 38 degrees Celsius and is best suited to areas where air conditioning is tuned off over the weekend or at night. The PLR-P-1260-2-GD is the medium size refrigerator in this range. Pinnacle offer a five star warranty on the PLR-P-1260-2-GD giving the user peace of mind when it comes to reliability.

Cabinet construction and standard features

The PLR-P-1260-2-GD has an external construction of 430 Stainless Steel and an internal liner constructed from 304 Medical and Food grade Stainless Steel. Standard features for the PLR-P-1260-2-GD include:
High efficiency insulation. Foam placing insulation using high density polyurethane close cell. CFC free. High quality materials ensure reduced running costs and maintain internal conditions.

Efficient Refrigeration System.

The Pinnacle Scientific refrigerators and freezers are designed with oversized evaporators and condensers for fast cooling and greater efficiency. Forced draft, frost free (Electric Defrost system on freezers). Top mounted condensing set for easy service access. Operating temperature (rating at 38°C ambient)

Digital controller with minimum and maximum temperature logging.

The minimum and maximum temperatures attained inside the refrigerator are logged by the controller. The running temperature is user adjustable between 2-10 degrees Celsius. The alarm set point is also adjustable to suit desired running temperature. The factory setting for the refrigerator is 5 degrees Celsius and the alarms are set at 2 and 8 degrees Celsius. The controller has a battery bank as standard to allow the temperature to be displayed during a power loss to the refrigerator. The high and low temperature alarms will activate when the set points are reached whilst there is no power on the refrigerator. This also triggers the BMS outputs to notify personnel remotely from the refrigerator.

Remote alarm contacts for Building Management System (BMS) connection.

This feature is primarily used by facilities that are not staffed 24hrs a day. A set of contacts will open and trigger an alarm if there is a high temperature, low temperature or a power failure. Most often these alarm contacts can be hooked into the existing alarm system within the facility making it very cost effective. In many cases faults can occur (circuit breaker tripped etc.) after-hours and with no staff present to save product. Also see our GSM, hard wired auto dial system and WiFi logging and alert system.

Cable port hole.

In some cases users fit auxiliary temperature sensors. With a cable port as standard, the sensor cable does not have to run through the door seal. This feature reduces damage to door seals and also reduces unnecessary ice ups and potential service calls. See our auxiliary temperature loggers.

Fan forced cooling.

Fan forced cooling ensures good air circulation and uniform temperature distribution on shelves within the refrigerator.

Plastic coated wire shelves.

Maximises air distribution inside the refrigerator.

Door lock.

A lockable door provides product security.

Internal lighting.

Allows for easy identification of product in low light areas.

Cyclic defrost.

The evaporator located within the refrigerator is automatically defrosted during an off cycle. The refrigerators are designed for high turnover of product.

Optional features

Guardian T alarm testing facility

Standalone Product Test/Alarm Unit. Please refer to the product page.

External temperature Logger.

The loggers are a standalone item to the refrigerator that continuously logs the temperature within the refrigerator. This is used to determine how long product has been out of range. (i.e. Wi-Fi logging and alert, standalone USB or the Guardian-T)

7 day chart recorder.

Records the temperature within the refrigerator and continually plots it on a 7 day rotating graph. This feature allows easy viewing of refrigerator temperatures. For full details please refer to the product page.

Low temperature cut out.

Fitted to stop the refrigerator freezing in the unlikely event of a control failure.

Auto dialler system.

Used for communicating fault conditions by dialling external telephone numbers when the refrigerator is in the alarm state. Available in both GSM and standard phone line.

Additional shelving.

Standard 5 shelving levels.

Customised shelving.

When the existing shelving does not suit the application a custom solution is available.

Solid door.

Solid door for products that are light sensitive.
