    High/Low Temperature Limit Controller and Alarm
    Limit Controller Provides independent protection against excess temperatures. Both high and low limits can be set. The upper LED readout indicates the actual chamber temperature while the lower readout indicates the status The limit controller will shut down the chamber and trigger the audible alarm in the event of an out of limit condition. A set of uncommitted contacts are available to provide a safety power interlock for your test sample.

    Viewing Window
    Our unique design virtually eliminates exterior window sweating during normal temperature cycling conditions.

    Two 4" Access Ports
    Lets you attach wires and sensors to your test sample through both the left and right side of the chamber.

    Adjustable Shelf
    A heavy-duty stainless steel wire shelf ensures proper airflow around your test sample for uniform temperature distribution. One shelf is included for no extra charge. Additional shelves and optional shelf slides are available.

    Chamber Condensate Drain
    The chamber floor is sloped and has a drain to permit removal of condensate that can occur when cycling from low to high temperatures.

    Casters
    Rugged casters permit easy movement.

    Built-In Refrigeration Gauges
    Provides system status for easy preventive maintenance and service.

    TECHNICAL FEATURES

    No-Sweat Cabinet
    We use a combination of structural foam and fiberglass blanket insulation for a higher combined R-factor than just fiberglass alone. The door sealing surface is kept warm by circulating excess heat from the refrigeration system. The result is a cabinet that does not sweat due to condensation during low temperature operation.

    The window is constructed of 6 panes of tempered glass separated by low-conductivity spacers to keep thermal losses to a minimum. Our unique design virtually eliminates exterior window sweating during normal temperature cycling conditions.

    The stainless-steel interior liner is heliarc welded, while the refrigeration compartment behind the liner is double-insulated and carefully sealed. These design features reduce thermal losses and prevent moisture migration, ensuring years of optimum performance while keeping the cabinet rust-free.

    Reliability & Safety That's Designed In
    Non-CFC refrigerants are used in a cascade (two compressors) configuration. Expansion valves provide optimum performance throughout the operating range. Pressure regulators keep the operating pressures within safe limits regardless of load conditions. Liquid injection ensures cool compressor operation during high-temperature pull down for long life. Sequential starting of each compressor reduces the current demand on start-up. Each compressor is protected by high/low pressure switches. Care has been taken to use a minimum number of fittings, joints and welds to reduce the possibility of refrigerant leaks.

    All electrical control components are UL approved. Each branch circuit is individually protected with class-CC fuses. A main power disconnect switch is provided on the front panel. The nichrome air-heater has a low watt-density and even heat distribution for reliable performance and fast response. A fusible link provides fail-safe protection against thermal runaways, in addition to the microprocessor-based high/low limit controller.

    The side and rear panels are removable to permit complete access to the refrigeration system for ease of service and preventive maintenance.

    About Copeland Glacier Compliant Scroll® Compressors
    Compliant Scroll is the most reliable, most efficient and quietest compressor technology available today. Copeland's design allows the compressor to be more tolerant of liquid refrigerant and debris. Compliant Scroll compressors perform at higher efficiency levels than reciprocating compressors. They also have 50% fewer moving parts, which increases reliability and reduces sound levels. More about Scroll Compressors >>

    Should I buy a TestEquity 1016S Single-Stage or 1016C Cascade Chamber?

    TestEquity Cascade refrigeration systems are capable of achieving workspace temperatures down to -73°C. This is required for many ruggedized industrial, automotive and military tests that require low temperatures of typically -40°C, -55°C or -65°C. A cascade system uses two interdependent compressors. One compressor (low-stage) directly cools the workspace. The other compressor (high-stage) cools a heat-exchanger (cascade condenser) to remove heat from the low-stage. If you need to go below -35°C, choose the TestEquity 1016C.

    TestEquity Single-stage refrigeration systems are capable of achieving workspace temperatures down to -35°C. This is fine for many commercial and industrial tests that require low temperatures of typically 0°C, -10°C or -25°C. A single-stage system uses one compressor to directly cool the workspace. Single-stage systems offer these benefits over similarly-sized cascade systems:

    • Faster cooling rates.
    • Higher live-load capacity.
    • Quieter operation, more energy efficient (one compressor instead of two).
    • Higher anticipated reliability and lower cost of maintenance over the life of the chamber.
