Medical Coolers: The Ideal Way to Transport Insulin & Medication
Lab coolers are devices used to store sensitive materials at a consistent temperature in order to preserve them in the state that they need to be in for proper use and facility operations. Unlike the typical cooler you might use at a picnic, these devices are advanced electronic machines that come with a control mechanism that allows you to set and adjust the temperature within. Some medical coolers have only heating mechanisms, while others feature both heating or cooling. In addition, medical coolers are available in many different sizes, allowing you to pick the most efficient dimensions to fit your storage or transportation needs.
Here at Living Direct, we are proud to feature a wide variety of Koolatron coolers, a leading manufacturer of portable medical coolers. Koolatron is known for making some of the best medical-grade coolers on the market for storing important and delicate materials that need to be kept at a constant temperature without fluctuation. Typically, lab coolers are set to a specific temperature at the factory when they are made, ensuring stable, accurate temperatures.
The Benefits of Medical Coolers
Medical coolers are important devices for field work because they can run on both AC and DC power sources. This means that whether you need to use a cooler in the lab by plugging it into a wall adapter, or you need to take it out into the field and maintain its charge with a battery, it will be able to receive and utilize the flow of energy efficiently. All of the devices we offer come with an AC/DC adapter that not only allows you to utilize sockets in any wall, but also to plug them into vehicles, allowing you to transport important items safely.
Some coolers can reach temperatures as high as 160 degrees Fahrenheit, while others can be adjusted to low temperatures around 33 degrees Fahrenheit. These devices function so well because they have built-in temperature sensors, with heating and cooling systems constantly in action to make sure that temperatures are stable within the storage chamber. An internal convection fan distributes air throughout the cooler, so that everything inside the unit is kept at your desired temperature throughout the whole device. The slightest deviation from the set temperature will be automatically adjusted by the device’s sensitive internal machinery. To ensure that the temperature is maintained and protected from being accidentally unplugged, all medical coolers are equipped with a unique wrap for their cords.
The motors for these machines are brushless, which means that they fit the standard for industrial use. Brushless motors are built with less parts, allowing for a more efficient design. Unlike the old-school types of motors which are brushed, brushless motors are more durable and can convert the same amount of energy as brushed motors while being more efficient. Brushless motors come with a part known as stationary windings, which are able to communicate with the device the motor is attached to. If there is greater resistance encountered, the charge will be increased, whereas lower resistance means a lower charge is needed. The motors contained in these lab coolers are so sensitive that they will make minute adjustments if a tiny change in temperature occurs, but if a bigger change in temperature occurs, they will increase their charge to shift things back to equilibrium in the fastest possible time. This saves energy and keeps things stable.
