Phononic Unveils Medical-Grade Solid-State Undercounter Refrigerator
Provides smart refrigeration with precision temperature control
DURHAM, N.C. — Phononic, a supplier of solid-state cooling and heating technology, has announced the latest model introduction to its Evolve™ brand. The 5.5-cubic-foot, medical-grade undercounter refrigerator is designed to safeguard drugs, vaccines, and medical devices with exacting temperature control stability and embedded monitoring software.
Evolve medical-grade refrigerators meet Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for controlled storage of vaccines and pharmaceutical drugs. Using proprietary solid-state technology, the refrigerators feature precision temperature control designed to meet National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements which allows rapid temperature recovery after frequent door openings. The units provide true center-air temperature control to a less-than-one-degree variability, said the company. They also feature uninterruptible power supply (UPS) battery-backup compatibility while operating at a quiet level of less than 35 decibels at close proximity.
“Our Evolve cold storage line was launched to deliver unprecedented compressor-free cold storage to the health care industry,” said Mike Demasi, vice president and general manager of Cold Products at Phononic. “This 5.5-cubic-foot unit builds upon the success of our 1.8-cubic-foot unit launched last year and continues our product portfolio that meets the needs of health care everywhere.”
Powered by Phononic’s SilverCore™ system, Evolve uses solid-state heat pump technology coupled with a non-hazardous, non-toxic refrigerant to give medical facilities sustainable as well as precise refrigeration. Packed inside of its cleanroom-compatible painted steel exterior shell, Evolve models sport an integrated temperature monitoring system with National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)-certified glycol and air sensors. The doors feature keyless entry with a password-protected lock. The unit is also designed to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance countertop height specifications, fitting under the 32-inch counter height.
The Evolve undercounter models are also intelligent. With the product option to be equipped with the company’s embedded SilverPoint™ temperature monitoring solution, operators can log data locally or with Wi-Fi-enabled remote storage.
