Austin, TX Insect Rearing Our versatile line of insect rearing chambers has been specifically designed to provide the best possible atmosphere for studying drosophila (fruit flies), mosquitos, and other insects. Insect rearing chambers are the ideal place to breed, rear, incubate, and observe any insect you are studying in Austin, TX. With the meticulous temperature controls and the quality construction, our insect rearing chambers are meant for use in many other capacities beyond the study of insects in Austin, TX. Darwin Chambers has been known for the precise temperature controls and consistent environmental conditions - such as temperature, humidity, and light - of our chambers. We have engineered our insect rearing product lines accounting for certain considerations for which more general chambers do not account. Due to our in-depth knowledge of the needs involved in insect research, our engineers have been able to design insect rearing systems that prioritize: Ease of cleaning Ability to shut down all heat-producing and cold-producing equipment in emergency situations Decontamination abilities Nearly silent noise levels Easy programming resistance to corrosion Darwin's Insect Rearing Chamber Features The cooling mechanism is one of the biggest concerns in insect rearing environments. Our thermoelectric cooling technology provides reliable cooling, sturdy construction, and is energy efficient by functioning without the need to cycle or run at full capacity, which many competitors' cooling systems must. The one limitation of thermoelectric cooling is the temperature range to which the system can cool. Our machines use several separate thermoelectric units. A byproduct of this is redundancy and a consistent temperature. This design allows our chambers to maintain temperature even in the event of multiple system failures. Most researchers have no need for an insect rearing environment below 15 degrees Celsius. For situations that necessitate temperatures below this threshold, our low-temperature insect rearing chambers use a powerful, epoxy-coated condenser refrigeration system with a range of 2 to 50 degrees Celcius. Cooling devices are protected from the inside of the chamber by a thick layer of sealed aluminum. This layer offers profection against the food and other substances involved in Austin, TX insect rearing which can be highly acidic. The acid has the power to be highly corrosive to some materials, so we rely on epoxy coating and thick stainless steel to protect your insect rearing chamber from damage. The standard controls on our machines are made by Fuji Electric and are excellent for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is found in numerous of commercial applications and has proven its reliability and performance abilities many times over. Many other exceptional features are standard in all of our inset rearing products, placing our chambers above our competitors. Primarily, our chambers are built using durable materials such as stainless steel wire shelving options and corrosion-resistant walls. Owners of our chambers also enjoy magnetic seal doors, a diurnal ramping and soaking cycle, and setpoints and high/low alarms that can be easily operated with very little instruction required. Types of Insect Rearing Products The Darwin Chambers team has engineered a diverse range of insect rearing products , each designed with the needs of the entomologist and other insect-related researchers in Austin, TX in mind. Choose from our reach-in models, insect rearing rooms, or low-temperature models. To discern the absolute best model for you, discuss with one of our eager-to-help expert associates. Reach-In Insect Chambers - the IN series The IN series is credited as the first commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber, and there are thousands in use across the world today. Choose from a variety of dimensions from benchtop to three-door full length. Due to the omission of traditional refrigeration technologies, these machines do not require expensive refrigeration servicing. Our reach-in chambers are made of simple components that you can easily and quickly service when necessary without a specialized technician or special tools. Installation in Austin, TX is a breeze. Walk-In Insect Chambers Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Austin, TX facility. In addition to the standard features that are a part of all of our insect rearing chambers of any size, there are other features to consider when discussing our insect rearing rooms. Because our walk-in rooms are designed for people to be able to enter and work within, we have made sure to provide ADA compliant features that make the room accessible to everyone. The designs also feature epoxy-coated air handlers and finishes on exposed surfaces that protect against corrosion. Considering the large scale of walk-in rooms, energy efficiency becomes a priority and presents a challenge. Precision Fluid Temperature Control Unit, or PFTCU, is an indirect cooling system that makes use of multiple refrigeration technologies. It is energy efficient and less expensive than the technology competitors use. In addition, LED lights within the chamber emit more light, produce less heat, and require less energy than fluorescent bulbs. When people will be inside the chamber, safety is a huge concern. Our Austin, TX insect rearing rooms come standard with safety features like an emergency alarm. An illuminated push-button within the chamber, glow-in-the-dark labeling, and a pull cord make up the personnel emergency alarm. The emergency system is easy to access and engage and is also easy to reset. The visual and audible alarms that are triggered is a precaution that can halt emergency situations before they become even more dangerous. Low-Temperature Insect Rearing Chambers - INR Series Low-temperature insect rearing chambers reach lower temperatures than our other models and have advanced heat removal abilities. These models are appropriate for use in environments where ambient conditions are extreme or difficult to control or when there is a live heat load. Research that necessitates rapid open door recovery times is best done using a low temp chamber.
