San Antonio, 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 San Antonio, TX. With the meticulous temperature controls and the quality construction, our insect rearing chambers are meant for use in countless additional capacities beyond the study of insects in San Antonio, 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 with 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 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 technology allows for reliable cooling, solid construction, and is energy efficient, as it does not 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. 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 lower temperature capabilities, our low-temperature insect rearing chambers use 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 San Antonio, TX 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 Fuji Electric controllers that come standard on most of our machines are ideal for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is used in thousands of commercial products 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 ahead of 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 are simple to set with very little instruction required. Types of Insect Rearing Products The Darwin Chambers team has engineered a diverse range of insect rearing products that are all designed with the needs of the entomologist and other insect-related researchers in San Antonio, TX in mind. Our insect rearing products are categorized as reach-in chambers, walk-in rooms, and low-temperature reach-in chambers. To discern the absolute best model for you, discuss with one of our friendly expert associates. Reach-In Insect Chambers - the IN series Our IN series is credited as the first commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber, thousands of which are currently being used by researchers worldwide. Choose from a variety of dimensions from benchtop to three-door full length. In the absence of convensional refrigeration technologies, there is no need for 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 San Antonio, 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 San Antonio, TX facility. In addition to the standard features that are a part of all of our insect rearing chambers of any size, our insect rearing rooms have been built with auxilary features necessary for these large chambers. Because our walk-in rooms are, as the name implies, meant for the users to walk into, ADA complaince is a priority for us. We feel that anyone who needs to is able to access the room. Epoxy coated air handlers make parts resistant to corrosion over time. All exposed surfaces are coated with a finish to 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 our indirect cooling system that makes use of multiple refrigeration technologies. It leads competing technology in affordability and efficiency. In addition, LED lights within the chamber provide more light while emitting less heat, and require less energy than fluorescent bulbs. When people will be entering the chamber, safety is a huge concern. Our San Antonio, TX insect rearing rooms come standard with safety features like an emergency alarm. Personnel emergency alarms feature an illuminated push-button inside the room with glow-in-the-dark labels and a pull cord. The emergency system is easy to access and engage and is also easy to reset. When triggered, visual and audible alarms will sound - a feature that can prevent emergencies from developing into even more harmful situations. 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. Our low temp models are best for environments where ambient conditions are extreme or difficult to control or when there is a live heat load. They are also the best choice for researchers whose work requires rapid open door recovery times.
