Pinnacle 36L Breast Milk Fridge Brochure
Breast Milk Fridge – Product application
Pinnacle has developed a small expressed breast milk fridge designed to maintain expressed milk and other maternity products at the optimal temperature of between 0°C and 4deg;C degrees Celsius. Its compact design makes it the ideal for maternity suites and berthing wards that are limited in size. The PBMR-36-1-GD breast milk fridge has key features such as high and low temperature alarms and door open alarm should the door is left open for excess of one minute. The refrigerator is fan forced allowing uniform temperature within the refrigerated space and a faster recovery time after a door opening. This refrigerator comes standard with a set of contacts for easy connection to the building management system. Pinnacle also offers a breast milk freezer in a similar size.

Breast Milk Fridge Cabinet Construction and Standard Features

The PBMR-36-1-GD, Breast Milk Fridge is constructed externally of white colour bond steel. The internal liner is white Colour bond with adjustable shelf strips. Standard features for the PBMR-36-1-GD Breast Milk Fridge include:

Digital controller with minimum and maximum temperature logging.

The controller has battery backup that will continue to display the temperature inside the refrigerator for 24hrs after a power loss (Note: batteries should be replaced after extended power loss, see manual for further details). This feature is particularly desirable as it will not only display the current internal temperature but will also continue to log the minimum and maximum temperature. The audible alarm will activate when the refrigerator reaches the high temperature alarm point of 4°C even without power connected to the refrigerator. This feature has proved to be beneficial when the power chord has been bumped, unplugged or a circuit breaker has tripped.

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 the 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 and hard wired auto dial out systems.

Door open alarm.

In many cases refrigerator doors can be left slightly open compromising product, causing unnecessary ice ups and potential service calls. The Pinnacle door alarm controller will sound an audible alarm after one minutes of the door being left open to notify users that the door needs to be closed.

Internal fan switch.

As a measure to reduce temperature fluctuations within the Pinnacle Pharmacy Refrigerator upon opening the door the internal fan is stopped. This feature stops cold air being blown out of the refrigerator and it also reduces energy costs.

Cable port hole.

In some cases users fit auxiliary temperature sensors. The Pinnacle Pharmacy Refrigerator comes with a cable port as standard therefore 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 logger range.

Fan forced cooling.

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

Coated wire shelves.

Two full size shelves and one half size bottom shelf.

High efficiency insulation and glass door.

High quality materials ensure reduced running costs and maintain internal conditions.

Door lock.

A lockable door provides product security.

LED lighting.

Internal LED lights are energy efficient and therefore reduce the running costs. LED lights offer long life operation and reduce heat load inside the cabinet.

Cyclic defrost.

The cooling coil located on the back wall within the refrigerator is automatically defrosted during an off cycle. The refrigerators are designed for moderate turnover of product. Should you have a high turnover of product see the Pinnacle Premium Pharmacy Refrigerator product page.

Optional features

  • 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.
