Refrigeration Chamber Equipment
Definition : Combinations of devices (units), ancillary devices, and accessories designed to provide low temperatures above the freezing point of water (i.e., 0 degrees Celsius [32 degrees Fahrenheit]), typically from 2 to 10 degrees Celsius (35 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit), to a walk-in enclosure (i.e., a chamber) especially designed for this purpose or conditioned from an existing healthcare facility room. This equipment typically consists of compressors, fans, evaporators, ducted-air distribution systems, thermometers, temperature controls, and warming systems to balance the temperature; it may also include a recording temperature chart and alarms for dependable long-term storage. The characteristics of the equipment depend on the size, location, and intended use of the chamber (e.g., food storage, laboratory, morgue).
