Cold Room Freezers and Refrigerators

Since 2002, Polar Leasing has been a leading manufacturer of compliant temperature controlled cold rooms for use within the biological, medical and pharmaceutical industries. Our prototype dual temperature 8’x10’, 8’x20’, 8’x20’ HD Pallet and optional 8’x20’ redundant cold rooms have been temperature validated. These validation reports and evaluations may serve as a baseline and offer the assurance of the required performance.

Active compliant temperature controlled systems must be reliable to provide safe and effective cold chain storage. Pharmaceutical products such as life Sciences pharmaceuticals, biomedical technologies, life systems technologies, nutraceuticals, cosmeceuticals, food processing, environmental and biomedical devices all demand controlled environments in accordance with the international GDP directive (Good Distribution Practice).

Safe & Effective Product Storage

Polar Leasing temperature controlled cold rooms offer accurate temperature control for temperature sensitive product storage. They also provide the flexibility to move the refrigerated unit to various parts of your facility as areas of need change. Units are available in various sizes and operating temperatures and are easily secured to keep high value products safe.

All custom built cold rooms utilize a KE2 Controlled Environment system. This type of system is unique for its ability to control the internal temperature as well as defrost cycles to one-tenth of a degree. The KE2 Controlled Environment manages the temperature and humidity of sensitive product inventory. By maintaining both temperature and humidity, the KE2 Controlled Environment preserves product integrity, reduces spoilage and prevents shrinkage. Temperature is maintained precisely, providing the ideal product environment for pharmaceutical applications.

  • Provides energy savings 15-50% over mechanically controlled systems.
  • Eliminates unnecessary defrosts typically associated with timed based alternatives, reducing energy consumption and preserving product integrity.
  • Maximizes energy efficiency with less compressor run time resulting from shorter defrosts.
  • Eliminates ice formation on floors and ceilings.
  • Eliminates excessive temperature swings.

Generator Adaptable

Polar Leasing temperature controlled cold rooms operate off a 208-220-volt single phase electrical connection. However, in lieu of an electrical connection, a generator may also be used. If a generator is required for your specific application, a 25,000-watt generator can be used for a 20-foot temperature controlled room or an 8,500-watt generator for a 10-foot temperature controlled room.

Please note: Polar Leasing does not provide generator rentals. Contact your local distributor for information and availability.
