Life science, research and industrial laboratories undertaking temperature control applications can now minimise the environmental footprint of their operations with a new range of digitally controlled bath circulators designed to enable water and energy savings, while using low global warming potential (GWP) hydrocarbon refrigerants. Offering high performance, ease of use, and customisable cooling, heating and pumping capabilities, the Thermo Scientific A45 Bath Circulators preserve sample safety and integrity, and facilitate the delivery of reliable and repeatable results.
Developed with sustainability and compliance at their core, the new circulators are fully compliant with EU and Canadian F-gas regulations mandating the use of ozone-friendly, chlorofluorocarbon (CFC)-free refrigerants. The systems also meet the design specifications of the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE). Depending on individual application needs, the circulators can be operated on energy savings mode for lower power consumption, resulting in up to 70% reduction in energy costs. Water conservation is also enabled by replacing tap water for cooling and heating, allowing for further cost savings.
The A45 Bath Circulators offer excellent versatility — they can be configured with different heating and cooling capacities, sample volumes, and temperatures ranging from -45°C to 200°C to meet the varying requirements of a broad array of applications, including cell culture, chemical analysis and food stability testing. Users can also choose from a wide selection of intuitive displays, as well as accessories such as work area covers, racks/inserts and heat transfer fluids, to suit specific application needs. Furthermore, the systems’ powerful force and suction pumps make them suitable for use in both open and closed applications.
