Reach In Plant Growth Chambers E-30HO

The E-30HO is a specially designed Seed Germination Chamber used to study and research plant growth. Percival® Scientific chambers like the E-30HOO Plant Growth Chamber are frequently used to study vascular plants, plant pathology and facilitate plant production and seed germination within a controlled environment. With effortless control over the chamber interior, including the lighting, temperature levels, CO2 levels, humidity and other options, the chamber can also be used for many other scientific applications. The E-30HO is a compact chamber that allows you to easily create a constrained environment, without up too much space in your lab. At 31 inches wide and 46 inches high, the chamber allows a maximum growing height of over 24 inches and 3 square feet of workspace.

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
-Single lamp bank consists of energy efficient fluorescent lamps and incandescent lamps
-Intensity programmable up to 1230 micromoles/m2/sec of light irradiance measured at 6” from lamps on 3 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, suitable for stacking one above the other

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

-One door opening of 26.8” x 29.8” providing full access to chamber interior (magnetic gasket provides a tight seal to door frame)

Interior Space
-9.7 cu.ft. with work area of 3 sq.ft. provided on one tier

-One tier of white epoxy coated steel wire shelving (shelf is 16.5”D x 26.5”W)
-Shelf is supported by shelf clips allowing 1/2” vertical adjustments
-Maximum growth height is 27”

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

-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)
-Solenoid valves have extended stem for quiet and long life operation
-Rear chamber wall mounted evaporator coil incorporates an air circulation fan (heat rejection to ambient with standard chamber: 4700 BTU/hr)

Temperature Range
