Pittsburg, PA 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 made to breed, rear, incubate, and observe insects and other specimens you are studying in Pittsburg, PA. With the meticulous temperature controls and the quality construction, our insect rearing chambers are meant for use in many other applications beyond the study of insects in Pittsburg, PA. 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 accounting for 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 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. Darwin Chambers' thermoelectric cooling allows for reliable cooling, solid build, and is energy efficient by functioning without the 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. Multiple, independently running thermoelectric units provide redundancy and the guarantee of consistent temperature. In an emergency, our chamber will still be able to maintain a consistent temperature. Most researchers have 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 offers profection against the highly acidic substances that are often a part of Pittsburg, PA insect rearing, sometimes as their form of food. 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 ideal for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is used in numerous 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. 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 are simple to set with very little instruction required. Types of Insect Rearing Products The Darwin Chambers team has engineered a diverse range of Pittsburg, PA insect rearing products that are all designed for the specific needs of an entomologist or any researcher who studies insect subjects. Choose from our reach-in models, insect rearing rooms, or low-temperature models. To discern the absolute best model for you, speak with one of our friendly expert associates. Reach-In Insect Chambers - the IN series The IN series is celebrated 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. Due to the omission of convensional refrigeration equipment, 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 Pittsburg, PA is a breeze. Walk-In Insect Chambers We construct our walk-in chambers to the custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Pittsburg, PA 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. 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 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 Pittsburg, PA insect rearing rooms always include 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. 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. Research that necessitates rapid open door recovery times is best done using a low temp chamber.
