The Polar Series

Introducing The Polar50™, The World’s First -70°C Walk-In Chamber

The need for storing products at ultra low temperatures is increasing and whilst upright freezers to store products at -70°C are available, they are small and can involve using multiple freezers with increased power usage, floor space and costs.

Source BioScience has developed the Polar50™ which addresses current restrictions and incorporates the following features:

  • A walk-in storage chamber with an internal volume of 50m3
  • Fully ‘validated void’ traceable to national standards (UKAS / NIST) providing -70°C storage capability with a +/- 1% operating tolerance
  • Dual refrigeration system providing 100% operating redundancy - ensuring 24/7 operating compliance
  • Purpose designed refrigeration equipment housed in a standalone mechanical/electrical pack
  • A chamber system designed to allow easy installation in an existing stability suite
  • Significantly reduced power requirements compared to using multiple upright freezers
  • Built in safety systems, reducing operational risk
  • Minimal elements requiring service and maintenance, reducing the potential for equipment failure
  • A high efficiency insulated enclosure, incorporating 200mm of PIR insulated foam
