York BOD Incubator
Deluxe with Solid State
versatile and highly reliable low temperature incubator, to make
Biochemical Oxygen Demand determinations and for preservation of
vaccines, insulin, lever extracts, chemicals etc.
Robust Construction. Outer cabinet is made of M.S. Sheet, duly pre
treated & finished with epoxy powder coated paint for lasting
finish. Inner chamber is made of high polished stainless steel/aluminium
(anodized). It has provision for allowing wide range of shelf positions
& spacings. SS/Aluminium trays are also provided. Chamber is
duly insulated to minimise heat loss. Two door are provided. Outer
door is insulated and is fitted with magnetic tape for air tight
closing for no temperature loss. Door is provided with lock and
key. Inner door is made of transparent acrylic glass for inspecting
the specimens inside chamber, without opening the door and with
minimum temperature loss.
Temperature Control :
The heart of the YORCO B.O.D. Incubator is the excellent and reliable
solid state temperature controller cum indicator digital display,
range from 5°C to 50°C ± 0.5°C. Hermetically
sealed, high performance compressor works efficiently to lower the
inside chamber temperature. Heating elements are placed in the path
of moving air duly insulated from the body. Cooling coils also lie
in the air circulation path. Air is circulated by a double shaft
self-cooled, blower to keep the temp. uniform throughout the inner
chamber. A safety thermostat is provided, which switches off the
heaters in the event of failure of the normal temp. control system
to protect the specimens from excessive heat. Also fitted with a
door operated lamp for illumination inside the chamber. Caster wheel
provided at bottom for easy mobility.
Control Panel :
All controls and circuitry are housed at the top of the incubator
and therefore protected from spillage. Separate indicator lamps
for mains, heating and cooling are fitted. Temperature setting fine
and coarse knobs allow the user to set any desired temp. A Voltmeter
is provided on the panel to read the incoming voltage.
YORCO BOD INCUBATOR switches from heating to cooling and vice versa
irrespective of the ambient temperature because of its unique design
and thus is capable of working without any user intervention. Supplied
complete with 3 shelves of anodized Aluminium or Stainless Steel
as per the chamber, cord and plug, to work on 220 Volts, 1 Phase,
50 Hz, AC supply.

York Humidity System (Steam) for BOD Incubator
Incubator can be provided with humidity arrangement. Humidity is
created by condensation of steam generated by heaters dipped in
water. Humidity is controlled by imported Humidistat from ambient
to 95% ± 3% RH.
YSI 441-A York Humidity System (Water
Spray) for BOD Incubator
is created by spraying water in the form of fine mist generated
with the help of air compressor and other accessories which are
supplied with the unit. Humidity is controlled by imported Humidistat
from ambient to 95% ± 3% RH.
