Top 7 Questions You Should Ask When Buying a Chiller or Bath

  1. Does the product have any exclusive features? What sets it apart from other vendor’s chillers or baths?
  2. Is the vendor ISO 9001 certified?
  3. What refrigerants are used in the product? (this is applicable to chillers and refrigerated baths/circulators)
  4. Are the products energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and in compliance with RoHS guidelines? (no heavy metals used in printed circuit boards, etc.)
  5. Can old/broken units be returned for disposal in an environmentally friendly manner? (refrigerants reclaimed, metals and other materials recycled, etc.)
  6. Does the company accept trade-ins and if so, what happens to the old unit? (should be disposed of properly)
  7. What warranties and application and tech support do the company offer?

Display Problem with Julabo FP25-ME
I have a Julabo FP25-ME refrigerated circulating bath that the display is acting out.  When turned on it goes through a verification check, displays the version (3-11) and then goes into a malfunctioning loop where the set-point continuously cycles through set-points 1, 2 and 3, the large part of the display is stuck on "ttech" and none of the display keypad button have any effect.  The keypad is not communicating in any way.  The only time I can get anything to turn on in the lower compressor end is by switching the rear switch to the heating mode.  Not sure if this is what would be expected when the display and perhaps temp control is not working properly.
