Intertek Melbourn recently took delivery of ten ATEX rated sparkfree fridges and freezers for their facility based in Cambridge.
Richard Jafrato and Alena Zinkovskaya assisted in the delivery and helped position the units into their final place within their laboratories.
Intertek Melbourn are a GMP pharmaceutical analysis and formulation contract service provider to the pharmaceutical, biotech and healthcare industries. The laboratory is inspected and approved by the UK Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) for GMP compliance, hence, any refrigeration units must be validated to meet their strict storage requirements.
The fridges will be used to store pharmaceutical samples, standards and reagents which may be dissolved in flammable solvents.
“We have purchased Haier products previously and have been impressed with the uniformity and temperature stability of these products. This coupled with the competitive price lead us to purchase again.” explained Anthony Cayford, Equipment Coordinator Intertek Melbourn.
The ATEX rated range of sparkfree refrigeration have been designed for laboratories and research facilities looking to store chemicals or reagents that are flammable, explosive, evaporative or corrosive. All are certified to ATEX II and can be used in Zone 2 environments.
The sparkfree range offers reliable storage with excellent temperature and uniformity and features energy-saving hydrocarbon refrigeration.
