Insect Test Chamber

Insect Test Chamber
Description

Insect Test Chamber provides tailor made solution for a wide variety of entomological studies in universities. Insect Test Chamber are result oriented for insect rearing. Unique standard features are incorporated in the design to specifically support insect rearing for insect research in an Insect Test Chamber

Features of Insect Test Chamber:

  • A wide temperature range of 5°C to 70°C humidity range of 20% to 98% RH flexibility to simulate real-world environmental conditions.
  • Microprocessor based Environmental chamber controller with Auto tune PID Temperature Control/HMI based controller.
  • Coated refrigeration coils resist the corrosive effects of acids inherent in the rearing of insects.
  • Programmable refrigeration saves electricity contributing to lower utility bills.
  • Insect Test Chamber humidity system, delivers controlled humidity without wasting energy or generating heat and supports lower production costs.
  • Unique design includes helps flexing comportments through steps of interior components.
  • Horizontal airflow system generates airflow across all shelf locations.
  • Heavy-duty casters.
  • The stainless steel interior chamber and shelving are easily cleaned and highly resistant to corrosion.
  • The ergonomically designed door handle allows easy access into the chamber and contributes to workplace efficiency.
  • Microprocessor based optional Lighting System simulates day/night studies. The low profile, side mounted lighting system allows full utilization of the chamber interior and complete access to the sliding shelves is an added design feature of our insect growth chamber.
  • Optional Fluorescent Lighting System includes a cycle timer to simulate diurnal conditions for day/night studies.

 CONTROLLER

  • Microprocessor based Environmental chamber controller with Auto tune PID Temperature Control/HMI based controller.
  • In addition USB host port allows direct transfer of log files, program files and report to the external storage devices like Hard disk USB drive.
  • Securities for user access.

Construction

  • THE INNER CHAMBER is made of heavy gauge solid Stainless Steel sheet.
  • OUTER BODY – double walled constructed out of Cold Rolled Powder Coated.
  • Stainless Steel Tubular heater is fitted for better circulation
  • Microprocessor Based Advance CKD Programmable controller provides automatic operation of variable temperature, humidity value
  • The stainless steel shelves are adjustable and perforated, making them easy to clean and highly resistant to corrosion.
  • Technical Design and Construction Silent fan motor to maintain uniform temperature and humidity.
  • Circulation motor for water injection in routine model inside the control unit & Chamber.

Heating and Cooling Mode

  • Cooling:  An energy-efficient cooling unit is installed in our temperature and humidity control cabinets to enable bio chemical demand, cyclic and growth studies at lower room temperatures.
  • HEATING: Sealed Inconel heaters are located behind test space in the path of the circulated air.

They are properly insulated to with stand high and low temperatures and high surface temperature on the heater surface.

The system is protected from overheating with the help of a bimetallic strip which cuts-off the heater when the temperature exceeds a predefined limit.

  • Fitted with 02 Nos. Fan for cooling & heating). Technical Design and Construction Silent fan motor to maintain uniform temperature and humidity.

Illumination

  • Illumination with fluorescent tubes/LED accounts for artificial day light.
INSULATION:
In Insect Test Chamber the Gap between the walls is filled with Polyurethane Foam (PUF) Insulation.

AIR CIRCULATION SYSTEM:

The forced air circulation system provided in the chamber circulates air from the test space, over the cooling and heating coils and back into the test space.

Door interlock synchronized with the air circulation system
