Incubator - I-41LL

The Percival Scientific I-41LL incubator provides reliable temperature and environment control within a secure chamber, with additional features to make monitoring the environment and controlling samples easier. Organize plant, insect, bacteria or other samples across four shelves and designate the internal environment using the front facing control panel. The I-41LL maintains a consistent environment through the air-cooled condensing unit, designed for continuous operation without ice build-up. The IntellusUltra Controller keeps strict control over the incubator environment, with additional alarms and sensors available to fine-tune any indicators. Contact Geneva Scientific to learn more about additional specifications and optional features to equip your I-41LL.

Product Description

Applications

  • Designed for applications such as drosophila, culturing, rearing and holding of test organisms as well as bioassays, seed germination and product stability testing
  • Many other applications exist for this product

Percival’s IntellusUltra Controller

  • Percival Scientific has built a reputation of providing flexible, customized options for research scientists around the world. We have taken the philosophy to the next level with our improved IntellusUltra Controller. Now choose from the levels of functionality that meet your needs.

Lighting System

  • Fluorescent lamps horizontally mounted in pairs above each shelf
  • Intensity programmable up to 100 micromoles/m2/sec of light irradiance measured at 6” from lamps on 2 on/off light events
  • Programming and control of the lighting is done via IntellusUltra real time controller

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 1/2” diameter access port on R.H. wall
  • Stainless steel chamber floor equipped with floor drain and hose assembly
  • Contains caster assembly and adjustable leveling legs to compensate for floor unevenness in the lab

Air Flow/Circulation

  • Uniform air circulates across shelf via air diffusers on rear wall

Insulation

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

Door

  • One door opening 36.8” x 57.5” provides full access to chamber interior (magnetic gasket provides a tight seal to door frame)

Interior Space

  • 37.2 cu.ft. with work area of 27.2 sq.ft. provided on four tiers

Shelving

  • Four tiers of white epoxy coated steel wire shelving (each shelf is 27”D x 36.2”W)
  • Shelves are supported by shelf clips allowing 1/2” vertical adjustments
  • Maximum clearance between shelves is 8.6” per tier with all four 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: 2700 BTU/hr)

Temperature Range

  • 5-44C (+/- 0.5C) with lights on and 2-44C (+/- 0.5C) with lights off

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.
