A freezer is a refrigeration equipment that includes a thermally insulated compartment and a refrigeration system, which helps it to keep cold and slow down rotting. It is kept cold by compression or by absorption, which is capable of keeping the products stored inside at a temperature below 0 ° C, normally between -30 ° C and -4 ° C.
The freezer in a laboratory is one of the most important equipment. Its function consists of maintaining, in a controlled environment (refrigerated space), various fluids and substances, so that they are kept in good condition the lower the temperature, the less chemical and biological activity. To achieve this, the inside temperature of the refrigerator is required to be lower than room temperature.For their operation, freezers require the following provisions:
Electrical connection with an earth pole suitable for the voltage and frequency requirements of the equipment. It must be foreseen that the electrical connections comply with the national or international electrical regulations used by the laboratory.
