New case studies with AGI-ASAHI reactor
Two new case studies with Unistat 510w and Unistat 912w are available on our website. Both Unistats were connected to an AGI ASAHI 60 liter glass reactor. The case studies show heating and cooling curves, control behavior and the achievable minimum temperature. The results show the efficiency of Unistats very clearly. For example the Unistat 510w cools the reactor content comfortably down to -50 °C, this means down to the lower end of the specified operating temperature range.
     
 
Environmentally friendly and energy-efficient
We use natural refrigerants for more than 20 years already and we are one of the pioneers in the field of environmentally friendly thermoregulation. The innovative design of our units makes it possible to equip large Unistats with environmentally friendly refrigerants and ensure their safe use. The devices achieve an excellent ecological balance not only in the field of refrigerants but also when it comes to low cooling water consumption of water-cooled Unistats and Unichillers, making Huber products especially environmentally friendly.
