VIP ECO ULT freezers (-86°C)

Cold storage that contributes to sustainability


VIP ECO ULT Freezers are specially designed to achieve and maintain temperatures down to -86°C for the storage of valuable biological samples. Specifically, they provide maximum sample storage capacity within an optimum footprint and utilise natural refrigerants to minimise energy consumption, reduce environmental impact, and save money.

They are particularly useful for short- and longer-term storage of biosamples, such as those in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sector, research institutes, or blood and tissue banks. Biological materials must be kept safe under specific conditions, as they are valuable, unique, and often irreplaceable. They can play a key role in scientific breakthroughs, not just for today, but also in tomorrow’s research.

However, while effective ULT storage is absolutely essential for many labs, freezers are an obvious sustainability issue, because they are required to operate 24/7. Life science organizations everywhere are striving to further improve their carbon footprint, meet new environmental sustainability targets, and save money.

Our VIP ECO ULT Freezers are well-established and well-respected products in the world of life sciences. They are renowned for their accuracy, reliability, stability, as well as their energy efficiency.

Bioscience research remains a growth area. PHCbi’s VIP ECO ULT Freezers have become the -86°C ULT Freezer of choice for many labs. In addition, they have assumed a significant new role in the logistics and storage of certain Covid-19 vaccines and have also become particularly important in the public health sector across the world.

PHCbi first developed ECO line solutions featuring advanced hydrocarbon refrigerant technology over a decade ago to provide its customers with energy-efficient and environmentally friendly cold storage equipment options.

ECO line products feature natural hydrocarbons that achieve more efficient cooling due to their high latent heat of evaporation (the amount of heat required to turn a liquid into a gas). As a larger amount of heat energy is required to break the hydrocarbon molecules, these refrigerants remove heat more efficiently from the freezer cabinet than a traditional refrigerant.

As a result, smaller compressors are used in VIP ECO ULT Freezers that improve energy efficiency and lower running costs. In addition, our natural refrigerants have an exceptionally low global warming potential and are, therefore, better for the environment.

Figures and Features

What makes our VIP ECO ULT Freezers so flexible?

The VIP ECO ULT Freezer range includes upright/cabinet models in various capacities from 528L to 845L. Flexible shelving options provides easy and adaptable access to samples.

What makes our VIP ECO ULT Freezers so easy-to-use?

All our VIP ECO ULT Freezers feature highly effective user-interfaces, including doors, monitoring systems, and alarms, and clear and specific user protocols. Flexible shelving options provides easy and adaptable access to samples. There are no special requirements that require consideration before purchasing a VIP ECO ULT Freezer. Space for the equipment must, of course, be available. Other than that, a normal 230V electrical socket is all that is required to run one.

What makes our VIP ECO ULT Freezers so efficient?

The Freezers feature natural hydrocarbons that achieve more efficient cooling and are better for the environment. As a result, smaller compressors can be used in our VIP ECO ULT Freezers leading to greater energy efficiency and lower running costs and can save up to 15% of running costs. In addition, our natural refrigerants have an exceptionally low global warming potential.

Advanced insulation also adds to the efficiency equation with VIP ECO ULT Freezers. PHCbi was the first company in the world to introduce vacuum insulation panels to ULT Freezers. Our patented VIP vacuum insulation provides outstanding insulation and yields more interior storage volume in a conventional freezer footprint. Overall, our VIP ECO ULT Freezers have a small footprint.
