Three Ovens (warming/drying) sustainability tips

Wolflabs is committed to halving its carbon emissions by 2030. We would also like to help our customers. Hopefully these tips will be of use to you. If you can think of more, please Email Us.

1. Check door seals to ensure less heat escapes.

2. Regular service to ensure the heating element is working to full capacity. Equipment not running at its full potential has the effect of using more energy and costing more to run for the end user.

3. Choosing insulated chambers, and doors with double glazing save energy costs by over half.

If you would like more information on increasing sustainability through routine maintenance, contact Emma Jones in our service team.

5 Ultra-low Temperature Freezer Tips in Line with Sustainability

5 Ultra-low Temperature Freezer Tips in Line with Sustainability

Wolflabs is committed to halve carbon emissions by 2030, and as many other companies look at ways they can be more sustainable, we have five tips on how to run your ultra-low temperature freezer more sustainably.

1. Check for wear and tear on door seals at least once a year. If the door is not sealing properly across the whole surface, your energy costs will be needlessly high.

2. Defrosting your freezers on an annual basis will allow for the removal of built-up ice, and gives you the opportunity to give the interior compartment a clean. The more ice your freezer has in it, the more energy it uses.

3. It is more energy-efficient to have a full freezer than an empty one. The freezer works most efficiently when packed as full as possible. Need to fill in some space? Tuck extra ice packs or spare containers inside.

4. At https://www.wolflabs.co.uk/laboratory-products/freezers-ultra-low-temperature note the difference in energy efficiencies featured. You will see that there is a four-fold difference between the best and the worst.

5. Once the freezer is down to temperature most energy is consumed through temperature recovery after prolonged door openings. For this reason, being able to retrieve samples quickly is a major benefit. It therefore may be worth purchasing an inventory system. Depending on the usage it is likely the cost of the inventory system will be compensated for by the reduction in energy consumption, over the lifetime of the freezer.

Wolflabs is committed to halve carbon emissions by 2030, and as many other companies look at ways they can be more sustainable, we have four tips on how to run your water purification system more sustainably.

1. Ensure air cooling fans and photo optics are free of dust but keeping away from air / ventilation ducts

2. Periodically remove from the bench and clean underneath the machine in order to remove any dust that could be sucked into the unit

3. Prevent photo optics over heating by making sure the cooling vents are not obstructed

4. Certain readers are programmed to be energised whilst the unit is powered on – save costs by ensuring the unit is never left on longer that the manufacturer recommends

4 Microplate Washers Tips in Line with Sustainability

Product Update

4 Microplate Washers Tips in Line with Sustainability

Wolflabs is committed to halve carbon emissions by 2030, and as many other companies look at ways they can be more sustainable, we have four tips on how to run your water purification system more sustainably.

1. Prevent your motors from failing prematurely by ensuring guide rails and bearings are properly lubricated

2. Prevent build up and blocking the head by discarding any remnants of previous buffer before filling with new – never ‘top up’. At the same time, make sure to empty the vacuum pump each time you fill up the buffer to prevent damage. By regularly rinsing with 10% alcohol you are also reducing the risk of unnecessary build up

3. Reduce restriction in the dispensed volumes by cleaning the inlet filters regularly

4. Keep away from direct sunlight and in a dust free environment
