23 Cu. Ft. Capacity Premier Certified to NSF/ANSI 456 Pharmacy Solid Door Refrigerator

Product Number: PH-ABT-NSF-23S
EnergyStarETL_Sanitation-listed3intertek-etl-listed-us-mark-seeklogo31 (002)*ul*Green-Leaf-ABS

These premier upright refrigerators are designed in accordance with the NSF/ANSI 456 Standard for Vaccine Storage. Refrigerators protect pharmaceuticals at optimal temperatures, preventing waste and allowing for peak delivery.

These solid door refrigerators utilize microprocessor controllers and feature temperature alarms, remote alarm contacts, LED interior lighting, and probe access ports. American Biotech Supply Vaccine Storage Refrigerators utilize HFC-free refrigerant for environmental health and energy efficiency. 

For more information on Vaccine Storage: Vaccine Storage
The acceptable temperature ranges for vaccine storage are 36°F to 46°F (or 2°C and 8°C) in the refrigerator and -58°F and 5°F (or -50°C and -15°C) in freezers.

*-one or more of these certifications may apply to this unit.

Performance data acquired at 22°C ambient, using NSF/ANSI 456 compliant validation ballast probes, empty chamber, during stabilized steady state operation and a DAQ sampling rate of one measurement every 10 seconds

  1. - Uniformity is defined as the maximum variance in temperature across all probes at any point in time over the testing period
  2. - Stability is defined as the maximum variance in temperature experienced by any single probe over the testing period
  3. - Temperature performance for all loaded and unloaded door opening protocols, all alarm, controller and probe requirements as defined in the NSF/ANSI 456 standard for vaccine storage
  4. - Data per Energy Star test results or equivalent testing and calculation.  Heat rejection based on daily averages, not continuous operation.  Performance exceeds Energy Star requirements.
