Overview

The Controlled Rate Chamber Model 4000 Series offers uniformity and repeatability in rapid, controlled freezing and thawing applications. Our technology uses forced-air circulation to provide efficient pulldown from ambient to the desired temperature. Forced-air circulation allows the rapid pulldown process to extend to the fluid core, avoiding false freezing points and optimizing the freezing process (1,000 CFM air circulation).

This unique, convection-based, controlled freezing and thawing process eliminates uncertainty and allows temperature-specific conditioning to satisfy processing and shipping protocols for various pharmaceuticals.
