The Next Generation of Sustainable Ultra-Low Temperature Freezers
12:35–12:55 p.m.
Stirling Ultracold, Division of Global Cooling, Inc., Booth 6

Tim Kehrli, Stirling Ultracold, Division of Global Cooling, Inc.

This presentation will examine how energy-efficient, sustainable ultra-low temperature (ULT) storage technology is changing the life science refrigeration landscape. Citing recent studies that reveal significant and untapped opportunities for energy savings in laboratories, specific innovations will be highlighted that are changing the legacy of inefficiency that is inherent to aging ULT technology.

This session will also review recent progress in advancing the ENERGY STAR® Final Test Method, as the industry standard for comparing ULT freezer energy use. This will include the presentation of Stirling Ultracold freezer test results that confirm the efficacy of the Stirling free-piston engine as an enabling technology for lab sustainability, with no compromise in ultra-low cooling performance.

An exclusive preview of Stirling Ultracold's next generation ULT freezer will round out this session. This will include a first look at technology improvements that Stirling has made to their award-winning SU780UE freezer platform, with third-party test results that confirm unprecedented levels of ULT energy-efficiency, performance and reduced cost of operation. Finally, this presentation will explore how these innovations go beyond sustainability, and benefit the entire research organization.
