We want to help minimise your lab’s energy consumption. The naturally occurring hydrocarbon (HC) refrigerants used in VIP ECO Ultra Low Temperature Freezers provide more efficient cooling due to their high latent heat of evaporation, which mean that these refrigerants remove heat more efficiently from the freezer cabinet than traditional ones. The efficiency of a freezer can be measured as a coefficient of performance (COP) – a ratio of the cooling provided to the electrical energy consumed. VIP ECO ULT Freezers have an extremely high COP. And as a result, smaller, more efficient compressors can be used, leading to even greater overall energy efficiency. High quality insulation and a highly effective door seal also reduced energy requirements.
