Technological advances in refrigeration technology have allowed storage of medications and vaccines at optimal temperatures while also minimizing energy usage and reducing noise levels. Energy management is important for the professional healthcare environment. Refrigeration accounts for 2-3% of a hospital’s electrical usage.
Noise management is equally important for the healthcare environment. Sound pollution is a common complaint among both patients and healthcare workers. There are various research studies that highlight the negative impact of noise on hospital patients. It is also important to reduce the noise levels in pharmacies, medication rooms, laboratories and patient rooms.
GX Solutions Professional Medical-grade Refrigerators from Helmer Scientific are designed for the unique needs of critical healthcare applications such as medication and vaccine storage. Only professional medical-grade refrigerators deliver optimized control in three important areas: temperature, noise and energy management.
GX Solutions are powered by OptiCool™ technology. The OptiCool™ system pairs a variable capacity compressor (VCC) and natural hydrocarbon (HC) refrigerants to efficiently manage energy consumption and decrease energy usage, while providing optimal temperature uniformity, recovery and stability with decreasing noise levels.
