PHcbi is the current brand name under which Panasonic sells its biomedically related equipment. Panasonic and Sanyo branded cooler models made before 2018 may be identical to those branded PHcbi. This is a PHcbi branded freezer.
This freezer was declared surplus to the needs of a large healthcare organization. Its only apparent issues are a rub mark on the lower door and a dent on the lower vent panel next to the recorder both of which have been dealt with to the point you would have to be looking for them to find them. This unit cools down as it should and maintains at the lowest temperature. The display is bright and responsive and the alarm buzzer and visual functions work. The door locks and seals are undamaged and a set of keys is included. Six shelves and a PHCbi supplied analog temperature recorder are also included.
Also available at the same price is an upright single door PHcbi MDF-U731-PA with similar specs and 632L capacity.
According to the manufacturer:
The PHCbi brand -30°C Biomedical ECO Freezer provides a stable and reliable environment for storing of enzymes, vaccines, pharmaceutical products and other biomedical materials with uniform temperatures. The freezer incorporates a manual defrost that eliminates temperature fluctuation during operation. Configurable temperature ranges from -20°C to -30°C. The double door design only exposes half the stored product when one door is open.
Energy Efficient Performance
Natural refrigerant, a high performance inverter compressor, DC condenser fan and integrated electronic controls combine to manage overall performance, protect stored product and lower operating costs by up to 28% compared to conventional models. Performance is rated at 115V, AC, ambient temperature 30°C, with a wide tolerance for high ambient temperatures.
Microprocessor Controller and Alarms
The microprocessor-based temperature control system with LED display maintains accurate setpoint temperature to within 1°C over a range of -20°C to -30°C. Audible and flashing visual alarm lights supplement the setpoint deviation system to warn of parameter violations, or loss of power.
Smart Cabinet Design
Space-saving design allows more installation options in crowded laboratories or warm hallways. The cabinet includes 5 adjustable wire shelves. Optional open top bins can be added to hold common 2" or 3" freezer boxes, as well as miscellaneous goods. High density CFC-free and low GWP
foamed-in-place insulation creates a temperature resistant wall structure. Painted steel interior surfaces simplify cleaning.
Stored Product Protection
The two door Biomedical ECO freezer creates a stable temperature environment in a space saving upright cabinet designed for flexible storage.
Manual Defrost Condensate Removal
Occasional manual defrosting maintains the most efficient performance. An integrated condensate drain hose permits easy removal of water and stows out of the way when not in use.
Stored product creates a thermal mass that enhances interior temperature uniformity. Multiple interior cold wall surfaces remove heat quickly and efficiently while maintaining uniformity.
