Incubator - I-36NL

The I-36NL incubator from Percival Scientific provides an extra large controlled environmental chamber.  With over 32 square feet (3 square meters) of space, all within a precisely controlled internet setting, the I-36NL holds twice as many samples, cultures, seeds and other items.  The I-36NL is specifically designed to create a uniform environment throughout the chamber, keeping all items within the chamber stored in stable conditions.

Like other incubators available, the I-36NL gives you control over temperature, humidity and CO2 levels.  This environmental chamber is not equipped with lighting features, and is ideal for samples that require a dark environment.  With six adjustable shelves stacked in the 77-inch high unit, the I-36NL holds a number of large or small items.  Like other incubators, it can be customized to suit your needs, with additional sensors, Android-based touch screens, and other environmental controls.

Lighting System

  • No lights are contained inside the chamber

Cabinet Construction

  • Interior constructed of 22-gauge electro-zinc plated steel
  • Exterior constructed of 18-gauge exterior electro-zinc plated steel
  • Welded seams and joints on outer and inner shells
  • Inner shell supported by non-compressing/non-thermal conducting material locking inner liner in place without a metal-to-metal bond to outer case
  • Chamber is completely self-contained
  • Overall wall thickness is 2”
  • One 1 1/4” diameter access port on R.H. wall
  • Chamber floor equipped with floor drain and hose assembly
  • Contains caster assembly and adjustable leveling legs to compensate for floor unevenness in the lab

Insulation

  • Woodless construction using CFC free insulation (overall wall thickness is 2”, ample insulation for maintenance of stated temperature range)

Door

  • One door opening 29.2” x 57.5” provides full access to chamber interior (magnetic gasket provides a tight seal to door frame)

Interior Space

  • 29.7 cu.ft. with work area 32.3 sq.ft. provided on six tiers

Shelving

  • Six tiers of white epoxy coated steel wire shelving (each shelf is 27”D x 28.7”W)
  • Shelves are supported by shelf clips allowing 1/2” vertical adjustments
  • Maximum clearance between shelves is 8” per tier with all six shelves installed

Finish

  • Interior and exterior painted with high reflective, environmentally friendly, high temperature baked white powder coating

Refrigeration

  • Self-contained air-cooled condensing unit with hot gas bypass system for continuous compressor operation, extended life and close temperature control (this continuous running condensing unit ensures precise temperature control by alternating cycling refrigerant and hot gas to coil; this also prolongs life of compressor, and eliminates risk of ice buildup in coil)
  • Top mounted refrigeration system allows easy access for maintenance (e.g. cleaning)
  • As heat is rejected, it rises and is dissipated into room without having any effect on inside temperature of cabinet
  • Solenoid valves have extended stem for quiet and long life operation
  • Ceiling mounted evaporator coils incorporate twin air circulation fans in aluminum housing (heat rejection to ambient with standard chamber: 2900 BTU/hr)

Temperature Range

  • 2-44C (+/- 0.5C)

Temperature Safety Limit Controls

  • Experiment Protection: Adjustable high and low temperature controls, audible alarms, and visual indicators provided
  • Controls shut down all power to chamber, activating alarms (when the temperature returns to the normal range the system will automatically reset)

Convenience Receptacles

  • Two 115/1/60 convenience receptacles provided inside chamber

Electrical Requirements

  • Consult Geneva Scientific for electrical requirements and amperage draw.

Options

  • Additive Humidity Control with Sensor
  • Dehumidifier with Sensor
