Preserving natural resources and protecting our environment is an important obligation. Small and simple changes in design can result in effective and positive contributions to preserving our environment. A simple but effective change has been made by HUBER: technical modifications that allow the use of alternative, environmentally friendly refrigerants. These changes are proven, reliable and free.
The HUBER Petite Fleur, Ministat und Minichiller are environmentally friendly thermoregulation solutions with low running costs. They are offered with the natural hydrocarbone refrigerant propane R290 as standard. R290 has no significant Global Warming Potential (GWP) and no Ozone Depilation Potential (ODP). The refrigerant has an unlimited availability worldwide so is easy to source. But most notably: It has the same performance as the synthetic, conventional refrigerants. Users in the lab benefit from innovative technology and high precision thermoregulation while contributing positively to the environment.
The Ministat is the smallest cooling circulator in the world. It allows temperature control of objects directly in the bath or to thermoregulate “external” applications – and all ecofriendly! It has enough power to thermoregulate photometers, refractometers, viscosimeters, distillation apparatus, reactor vessels and mini plants. Three models are available with working temperatures from -45 °C to +200 °C.
The compact Minichiller is a space saving, environmentally friendly and economic cooling solution for laboratory applications. It is suitable for cooling of reactor blocks, vapor traps, vacuum pumps, rotary evaporators and heat exchangers. It ensures constant temperatures and highly efficient condensation of flow through vapours. The Minichiller is designed for continuous operation in ambient temperatures up to +40 °C.
The Petite Fleur with a working temperature of -40 °C to +200 °C is the smallest, hydraulically sealed dynamic temperature control system in the Unistat series and ideally suited to control small research reactors. Since its launch, the Petite Fleur has become a bestseller in the Huber product range. The Petite Fleur has unique thermodynamic properties and in comparison to other machines, the Petite Fleur is unrivaled when it comes to responsive temperature control.
All of these machines require minimal installation space and are perfectly suited to be placed on the laboratory bench, cabinets or for integration into automated systems. Thanks to their small size and low price, the return on investment (ROI) is within a very short time. Petite Fleur, Ministat und Minichiller are all fitted with the new touchscreen controller Pilot ONE. Operation is via a coloured 5.7” TFT display with intuitive menu icons, prompts and full text menu guidance in 11 languages. Thanks to the innovative technology and the natural refrigerant, the machines are future proof and address anticipated up and coming requirements concerning eco-friendly laboratory equipment.
