Orlando, FL Insect Rearing
We have invested our time and talents in designing the best incubators and chambers 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 Orlando, FL. As well, the precise temperature control and quality construction equip insect rearing chambers for use in countless additional capacities beyond the study of insects in Orlando, FL.
In addition to the precise manipulation and consistent control of the temperature, humidity, and light within the chamber, our engineers have designed our insect rearing product lines with certain considerations for which more general chambers do not account.
Our extensive knowledge of the field of insect-related research has allowed our engineers to conceive insect rearing systems that manifest:
- 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
For insect rearing rooms and containers, the cooling system is one of the major issues. Darwin Chambers’ thermoelectric cooling allows for effective cooling, sturdy build, and is energy efficient by functioning without the need to cycle or run at full capacity unlike other cooling mechanisms that are commonly used in refrigerating systems. The one limitation of thermoelectric cooling is the temperature range to which the system can cool. Multiple, independently running thermoelectric units provide redundancy and a consistent temperature. This design allows our chambers to maintain temperature even in the event of multiple system failures.
In most research settings, there is no call for an insect rearing environment below 15 degrees Celsius. For situations that necessitate temperatures below this threshold, our low-temperature insect rearing chambers have a powerful, epoxy-coated condenser refrigeration system with a range of 2 to 50 degrees Celcius.
A thick layer of sealed aluminum separates each chamber’s cooling device from the chamber interior. This layer protects against the food and other substances involved in Orlando, FL insect rearing which can be highly acidic. The acid is highly corrosive to some materials, but epoxy coating and thick stainless steel 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 used in thousands of commercial applications and has proven its reliability and performance abilities many times over.
Our insect rearing products come standard with many additional features that put our chambers above our competitors. Chief among them is the durable construction complete with 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 Orlando, FL insect rearing products that are all designed for the specific needs of an entomologist or any researcher who studies insect subjects. Our insect rearing products are categorized as reach-in chambers, walk-in rooms, and low-temperature reach-in chambers. If you’re not sure which model is right for you, speak with one of our friendly expert associates.
The IN series is celebrated as the first commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber, and there are thousands in use across the world today. The models range in size from benchtop to three-door full length.
In the absence of traditional refrigeration technologies, these machines do not require expensive refrigeration servicing. Our reach-in chambers are are easy to service quickly and with minimal effort due to the simplicity of the components involved. Installation in Orlando, FL is a breeze.
Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Orlando, FL facility. In addition to the list of standard features that are included in all of our insect-rearing chambers, regardless of their 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. Epoxy coated air handlers make parts resistant to corrosion over time. All exposed surfaces are coated with a finish to protect against corrosion.
Because of the large scale of walk-in rooms, energy efficiency becomes a priority and a challenge. Precision Fluid Temperature Control Unit, or PFTCU, is our indirect cooling system that incorporates a combination of different 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 entering the chamber, safety is the top priority. Our Orlando, FL 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. It is both easy to engage and reset whenever necessary. 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 have the ability to remove more heat and reach lower temperatures. 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.
