About: vaccine or pharmacy fridge/refrigerator?
The biggest drawback with your fridge at home is that is not very
accurate and not very stable and not very consistent. The
evaporator is in the storage compartment. When the compressor is
running the air cooled by the evaporator (the icy panel inside at
the back) falls and starts the cooling of your food at the bottom
of the fridge. There is usually several degrees difference between
the temperature of the food at the top and the bottom. This is not
good enough for a precious cargo such as vaccines and other drugs.
The solution is simple. The evaporator is separated by a wall and the air is blown over it and into the storage compartment by a fan. This moves the air quickly in a loop and steadily cools all of the contents at the same rate.
This picture shows Haier HYC118. Clearly visible is the digital
display and controls at the top and through the glass door is the
fan port. These models often feature a heated double glazed glass
front door which never fogs up. The advantage is that you can see
and identify the article you are about to remove from the fridge
and therefore minimise the door open time.
To be compliant with the NZ Ministry of
Health cold chain protocol the fridge must store and allow
you to retrieve the daily minimum and maximum temperature data.
