430L Laboratory Refrigerator Product Application

Pinnacle has developed a fan forced 430 litre laboratory  refrigerator that goes above and beyond the standard being offered by other manufacturers. With a small foot print and a large storage capacity, the PLR-S-430-1-GD laboratory refrigerator suits situations where space is at a premium. With an operation temperature of 5 degrees Celsius and alarm points of 2-8 degrees Celsius the refrigerator is designed for keeping laboratory products at their optimal temperature. The refrigerator is best suited to all laboratories including universities, hospitals and clinical trial organisations that have a moderate turnover of product. Pinnacle also offers a Premium Range of laboratory refrigerators in various other capacities. The Premium Range is designed for higher turnover of product, please refer to the Pinnacle Premium Range Laboratory Refrigerator product page for further information.

The PLR-S-430-1-GD laboratory refrigerator is constructed externally of white colour bond. The internal liner is white colour bond steel with adjustable shelf holders. Standard features for the Pinnacle Scientific PLR-S-430-1-GD laboratory refrigerator include:

Digital controller with minimum and maximum temperature logging.

This laboratory refrigerator temperature 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 8°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.

Open door alarm

In many cases laboratory 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 three 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 the refrigerator internal fan is stopped upon opening the door. This feature stops cold air being blown out of the laboratory refrigerator and it also reduces energy costs.

Cable port hole. In some cases users fit auxiliary temperature sensors

The Pinnacle Laboratory 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 Laboratory 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 plate 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 Laboratory Refrigerator product page.

Optional features

  • Guardian T alarm testing facility. Please refer to the product page;
  • External temperature logger. The logger is a standalone item that continuously logs the temperature within the refrigerator. This is commonly used to determine how long product has been out of range;
  • 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 dialer system. Used for communicating fault conditions by dialing external telephone numbers when the refrigerator is in the alarm state. Available in both GSM and standard phone line;
  • Additional shelving. Additional wire coated shelving;
  • Customised shelving. When the existing shelving does not suit the application a custom solution is available.
  • Solid door. A solid door to eliminate light sources for light sensitive products.
