Freezer facility

On the 3rd-floor there is a approximately 600 m2 freezer facility for use by staff at ANA Futura. External users are also welcome if free space is available. Periods of use are regulated by agreement, with a specified notice period.

The freezer facility is divided into three sections: Electric freezers, CBS freezers (liquid nitrogen-cooled low temperature freezers) and open handling of liquid nitrogen. It is possible to monitor the freezers with regard to temperature and temperature history logs.

I would like a freezer at the freezer facility. What do I do?
Contact the freeze facility manager and look at locations.

What does it cost?
An annual fee per freezer and one tariff for upright freezers and one for chest freezers (more expensive). Freezes connected to the alarm system must have a temperature sensor installed (model PT-100). This is for temperature logging.

Can I collect liquid nitrogen in a thermos?
Yes. The freezer facility is equipped with a central tap for liquid nitrogen.

What happens in the event of a power failure?
There is a backup generator that takes over in the event of a power failure.

How do I get to the freezer facility?
Either via the stairs or using the lift. The lift is equipped with a priority operation function (i.e. it will not stop at any floor apart from the one selected).
