Jacksonville, 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 insects and other specimens you are studying in Jacksonville, FL. As well, the precise temperature control and quality construction equip insect rearing chambers for use in many additional capacities beyond the study of insects in Jacksonville, 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 special considerations for which more general chambers do not account.
Our extensive knowledge of the field of insect-related research has allowed our engineers to design 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
The cooling mechanism is one of the biggest concerns in insect rearing environments. Our thermoelectric cooling technology provides 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 primary limit 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 the guarantee of 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.
Cooling devices are protected from the inside of the chamber by a thick layer of sealed aluminum. This layer offers profection against the highly acidic substances that are often a part of Jacksonville, FL insect rearing, sometimes as their form of food. 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 excellent for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is used in numerous 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. In addition, 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 Jacksonville, FL insect rearing products that are all designed with the needs of the entomologist and other insect-related researchers in mind. 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, discuss with one of our eager-to-help expert associates.
Our IN series is celebrated as the premier commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber, thousands of which are currently being used by researchers worldwide. The models range in size from benchtop to three-door full length.
Due to the omission of convensional refrigeration equipment, 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 Jacksonville, FL is a breeze.
We construct our walk-in chambers to the custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Jacksonville, FL 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 incorporates a combination of different refrigeration technologies. It leads competing technology in affordability and efficiency. In addition, the use of LED lights within the chamber provide more light while emitting less heat, and require less energy than fluorescent bulbs.
When people will be inside the chamber, safety is the top priority. Our Jacksonville, 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 prevent emergencies from developing into even more harmful situations.
Low-temperature insect rearing chambers have the ability to remove more heat and reach lower temperatures. 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.
