Reach-In Plant Growth Chamber - E-30L1

Percival® Scientific assists in the study of plant pathology, plant production and seed germination with a plant growth chamber specifically designed for the study of plants. The E-30L1 Seed Germination Chamber provides optimal storage space and an open growing space within a compact chamber. At 60 inches high and 31 inches wide, the chamber fits easily into your lab. The cooling unit is designed to work quietly and consistently in the background with minimal maintenance, so it’s continual operation is not distracting. The IntellusUltra controller at the front and bottom of the unit allows you to set the parameters of your growing environment with specificity.

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 870 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
-Stainless steel floor
-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 26.75” x 29.75” 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: 3700 BTU/hr)

Temperature Range
– 7-44C (+/- 0.5C) lights on and 2-44C (+/- 0.5C) 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
-One 115/1/60 convenience receptacle provided inside chamber

Electrical Requirements
-Consult Geneva Scientific for electrical requirements and amperage draw.
