We have been contracted by several specialty engineering firms over the last 5 years to design/build custom refrigeration systems. The purpose of the cold lab is to keep deep seawater samples at a very static temperature for being brought to surface for study.
We have done a total of 5 of these. Each one is unique and has very challenging aspects. We are registered with and have invested over 100k in research and development for these units.
The cold lab is a specialty lab, in that it has been designed for a specific purpose. It functions as a
refrigerated/freezer laboratory space. It has some of the standard features such as white and red lights, window light blanking plates, and laboratory-grade flooring.
The van is intended to have accurate and stable temperature control for the processing of science samples. The area of the van shall be thermostatically controlled between 0deg C (32deg F) and 10deg C (50deg F). Once the temperature is set, it shall be capable of maintaining an internal temperature accuracy of +/-1deg C with a maximum outside temperature of 38deg C (100deg F), and a minimum outside temperature of 0deg C (32deg F).
