Hear the difference: PolyScience's patented WhisperCool® Environmental Control System makes your lab a better place to work

May 01 2019 Read 1061 Times

For more than 50 years, PolyScience has been innovating the precise liquid temperature control industry.

Research and innovative thinking are part of the formula for the success of PolyScience, but a key ingredient is simply "listening", as President Philip Preston explains. "Some of the greatest innovations that have come out of PolyScience have really been coming directly from the customer."

The patented WhisperCool® Environmental Control System - a standard feature on select PolyScience Chillers, Circulating Water Baths, and the soon to be released DuraChill® Chiller line - is the result of listening to customer feedback, forward thinking, engineering and not being afraid to ask "why not?"

WhisperCool® reduces noise levels below conversational speech at a distance of two meters. Preston explains "a common complaint from chiller users is the noise associated with working next to a chiller day in and day out. This is a typical example of how customer feedback will drive engineering solutions at PolyScience. We heard the message and worked for years to develop the patented WhisperCool® Environmental Control System."

The PolyScience WhisperCool® System optimises condenser fan speed based on the cooling demand. "A 20% reduction in fan speed translates into a 50% reduction in operating noise while maintaining optimal cooling performance." says Preston. “ In many cases they’ll turn on the chiller, it makes the same noise as every other chiller on the market but then the fan slows down to the point where you don’t even notice it’s running."

Years of research, listening to customer feedback and innovation are what make WhisperCool® an industry standout as Preston explains. “Our patented adaptive technology noticeably reduces operational noise, optimises compressor and evaporator performance, decreases overall energy consumption, and prolongs compressor life. It is standard on select PolyScience Recirculating Chillers as well as -40°C 7 Litre and all 15 Litre and larger refrigerated/heated Circulating Baths.”

Due to the logarithmic nature of the decibel scale (dB), a small change in decibel values equates to a large change in audible sound level. A typical competitive chiller is rated at 71 dB, while a PolyScience WhisperCool® Chiller is rated at 62 dB. What appears to be a small difference of only 9 decibels is nearly equivalent to a 50% reduction in sound output. The corresponding graphics, illustrate some common sounds with their decibel ratings. Notice how the dB rating compares to the actual sound you hear.

Preston explains that customer feedback has always been the catalyst for innovation and change at PolyScience. “There are a number of areas where we have been pioneers in bringing very customer-centric solutions to market.”

All PolyScience products—Refrigerated Circulating Baths, Heated Circulating Baths, Chillers, Recirculating Coolers, General Purpose Water Baths, and Application Specific Equipment—are designed and developed by a highly trained engineering team in the USA to our own rigid standards, as well as ISO 9001 quality and ISO 14001 environmental requirements.

After five decades of driving liquid temperature control forward, the PolyScience passion for innovation, commitment to quality, and unmatched user-focus continue to drive our enthusiasm for designing and manufacturing superior products, making PolyScience the perfect partner for liquid temperature control.
