ABS Standard Auto Defrost Freezer

Category Upright Lab Freezers
Manufacturer American BioTech Supply
Country of manufacture the United States of America

American Biotech Supply Auto-Defrost Freezers are ideal for industrial, clinical, or research laboratory requirements. Designed to provide dependable, energy-efficient performance, all units are manufactured with CFC-free high-density urethane foam cabinet and door insulation to maintain temperature stability. An interior Forced Air Circulation design provides superior temperature uniformity over static designs and recovery times after door openings are dramatically reduced.

Auto-Defrost design provides the convenience of a frost-free interior. However, chamber air temperatures do experience a moderate rise during defrost cycles.

DISCLAIMER: Auto defrost freezers incorporate an electric heater installed on the evaporator that assist in the removal of the frost and ice. Although the heater helps speed up the frost and ice removal, it can raise the temperatures within the freezer.
