Cold Distribution and Humidity extraction

Airduct

Airduct is necessary unity which guarantee right distribution of cold to the chamber. It should goes from the machine to the most remote part of the chamber to uniform distribution of cold in chamber.

Snow catcher

Snow catcher is a device aimed to remove humidity out from the chamber. Necessary for minimize risk of icing of floor and samples.

Control System

Temperature sensors

As a part of monitoring system should be in each corner of chamber. For control of temperature uniformity of chambers parts.

Cameras

Addition to the sensors and part of monitoring system. Allow to control inside space of chamber without extra entrance. Notes: should be protected from icing and breakdown because of ULT.

Access control and Safety

Access control system

To limit the number of persons who have access to the storage space.

Door

Door should be isolated, icing protected. Locking mechanism must be chosen to satisfy need of pressure difference.
