Freezing Chamber Equipment
Definition : Combinations of units, ancillary devices, and accessories designed to provide temperatures below the freezing point (i.e., 0 degrees Celsius [32 degrees Fahrenheit]) to a chamber (i.e., a walk-in enclosure) specially designed for this purpose or conditioned from an existing healthcare facility room. This equipment typically consists of compressors, ducted-air distribution systems, thermometers, insulation material, and temperature controls; it may also include a temperature recording chart and alarms for dependable long-term storage. The characteristics of the equipment depend on the size, location, and intended use of the freezing chamber (e.g., food storage, laboratory, pharmacy).
