VIP® Series Ultra-Low Temperature Freezers

VIP Series Ultra-low Temperature Upright and Chest Freezers

-86°C ultra-low temperature freezers for secure sample storage, maximum capacity and a minimal footprint.

VIP Series freezers, the most reliable lab freezer

 

VIP Series Upright Freezer Offers Proven Reliability

VIP Series ultra-low temperature freezers have a performance history of reliability with more than 99% uptime over the -86°C freezer life cycle.
 

PHC Designed Compressors for VIP Series Freezers

The PHC designed compressor is specifically engineered to achieve and maintain ultra-low temperatures.
 
 
VIP upright freezer technology

Applies only to upright VIP ultra-low temperature freezers.

Using the Same Energy Twice

Compressors in the PHCbi cascade refrigeration system run cooler than compressors not designed for ultra-low temperature applications. By using the same energy twice, the PHCbi system borrows refrigerant flow from the high-stage circuit (A), looping it through both compressor reservoirs (C) to cool the lubricating oil and extend compressor life.
 

Lubrication

Oil in the compressor lubricates the internal bearings. Each compressor motor doubles as a pump (D) and sprays an oil mist on the discharge head (E) for cooling. This spray significantly reduces the compressor discharge temperatures.
 

Heat Transfer

PHC has developed and implemented a new heat exchanger with added surface area to transfer heat out of the low-stage refrigeration condenser and into the high-stage evaporator. A secondary heat exchanger in the low-stage circuit (B) also reduces stress on the low-stage compressor. Better heat transfer assures cooler compressor operating temperatures, longer life and increased power to tolerate high ambient temperatures.
 
 

Application Specific Design

Refrigeration components are meticulously selected and matched for optimum, efficient operation under demanding laboratory environments.
 

High Technology Insulation

VIP (vacuum insulation panels), a foamed-in-place polyurethane composite, results in an efficient, thin-wall cabinet, which has a higher insulation rating than conventional insulated cabinets. Insulated inner doors improve temperature uniformity, reduce cold air loss during door openings and extend warm-up times during power outages. Better insulation results in shorter compressor run time and lower energy consumption.
 

Robust Cabinet Construction

VIP upright and chest freezers include an electro-galvanized interior surface selected for excellent heat transfer from the freezer chamber. The computer-designed evaporator coil is enhanced with a 90% metal bonding agent and strategically placed to achieve maximum surface area.

Inner Doors on the VIP Series Upright Freezer Model MDF-DU900VC-PA

Ergonomic Design

The VIP Series upright freezer's access system is comprised of the outer door and inner doors, door gaskets, positive inner and outer door latches and a vacuum relief port. Chest freezer incorporates a positive latch, lid gasket and insulated sub-lid. These individual components work together to ensure comfortable operation, sample security, temperature integrity and frost control.
 

New EZlatch Introduced on MDF-DU900VC-PA

Available on the new MDF-DU900VC-PA is a computer designed EZlatch, engineered to tolerate frequent door openings with minimal effort.
 
 

Energy Efficient VIP Series Upright and Chest Freezers

The PHC design is a practical balance among components engineered to maintain operational reliability throughout the freezer life cycle. Compressors and intermediate systems work together to assure reliability first, then to optimize energy efficiency in the process.
 

Choosing a VIP Series Freezer

PHC offers six sizes of VIP Series freezers. Select from compact 3.0 cu.ft. to large 29.8 cu.ft. freezers designed for high volume storage in biorepositories and biobanking.
