Product Bulletin #13 – Product Upgrade Energy-Efficient Biomedical Freezers

Please note the Haier Biomedical -40°C freezer models DW-40L278/348/508 have been upgraded to DW-40L278J/348J/508J improving its energy efficiency, reliability and ergonomics.

Below are the differences:

New energy-efficient compressors and new hydrocarbon (HC) R290 refrigerant (changed from R404a), this has lowered the energy consumption (kWh/24h):

Universal wheels have been fitted – the older models had non-directional wheels at the rear, all new models will have directional wheels fitted to each corner and 2 levelling feet. We have done this following feedback from our customers to enable them to move the freezers easily.

Handle with lock – Following market demand we have replaced the old-style plastic handle to a more robust metal handle which is used on our ULT freezers (see below pictures). The benefits to the customer are that the handle can be locked with a unique key and it also has space for a padlock for extra sample security.
