Reliable Chamber Refrigeration of -35°C

Refrigeration systems often deteriorate over time so that is why we fully recharge the refrigeration system by evacuating the refrigerant, putting it under a strong vacuum to remove any debris, and finish by filling it with new refrigerant.

When all is done we can confidently say the refrigeration of this cryostat is sure to meet your needs, hold the chamber temperature at -35°C (when ambient is at +20°C). Our listing photo shows -34°C because the ambient temperature was +23°C at the time.
