IRC40- TWO DOOR INSECT REARING CHAMBER

The IRC40 two door insect rearing chamber is used by scientists in many research areas, from genomics to clinical epidemiology and species conservation. The two door insect rearing chamber not only can be used in drosophila research but also in many types of insect growing projects.

Chamber features all stainless steel interior and exterior construction with 2″ polyurethane CFC free insulation.

Chamber features a digital Watlow or equivalent PID temperature control and display along with precision PT100 RTD temperature sensor.

Cabinet standard features

  • Stainless Steel Exterior & Interior
  • Maintains temperatures between 10°c to 40°c
  • Temp and Humidity controller that displays both PV/SV
  • LED interior light with programmable digital diurnal timer
  • Recessed Door Handle
  • Door locks standard
  • 2″ access port
  • Magnetic door gasket standard for positive door seal
  • Pre-Installed 4″casters with bumper brakes
  • Three (3) Pre-Installed shelves per section-6 total.
  • Back wall plenum for even distribution of conditioned air

Chamber uses thermoelectric assembly for heating and cooling. This type of cooling/heating system completely eliminates need for conventional refrigeration system and failures due to mechanical components such as compressors thereby drastically increasing the life expectancy of each chamber. Maintenance cost is also lowered by the thermoelectric/Peltier driven heating/cooling system. The chamber is quiet  while in operation. Chamber temperature set points are tightly controlled using PID controller. Relative humidity set points are achieved via additive ultrasonic humidification. A humidifier is mounted on the back of the chamber. Refer to humidifier manual for maintenance and water line hook up.
