Sheldon Manufacturing Brings Energy Efficiency to the Refrigerated Incubator Market

Cornelius, Oregon, May 17, 2011 - Sheldon Manufacturing, Inc. introduces the SHEL LAB Model LI20P, the first widely available, environmentally friendly, thermoelectric cooled incubator designed for low temperature applications.

Using innovative thermoelectric cooling technology, Sheldon Manufacturing eliminates the need for a refrigeration compressor. The result: a low temperature incubator that uses 78% less power than alternative models while reducing room air conditioning loads by producing 75% less heat. “It’s cheaper to save energy than to buy it,” states Dan Sheldon, President of Sheldon Manufacturing, Inc. “Customers will save up to $450 per year on energy reductions from the thermoelectric cooling technology in the LI20P incubator.”

The LI20P features a heavy-duty shelving system. It eliminates sagging shelves with a 75-pound capacity per shelf. Tests have shown that the LI20P shelving system can hold up to three times the amount of weight as alternative models. The unit can hold up to 300 BOD bottles, and because of its superior temperature uniformity, customers can use all of the shelving space within the unit without worrying about sample degradation.
