Polar Leasing adds smart temperature technology

Feb. 3, 2023
The company’s new walk-in cold storage units feature KE2 Therm’s advanced controls that ensure the coolers meet stringent pharmaceutical industry standards.

Polar Leasing Company’s fleet of refrigerated rental walk-in units now feature internal and external smart technology designed to improve and control temperature consistency, product integrity, energy efficiency, and safety.

KE2 Therm Solutions’ technology, used in select Polar Leasing walk-in cold storage units, ensures accurate temperature verification, which is crucial for many industries, particularly pharmaceutical applications, Polar Leasing said. The system is available with two Polar Leasing walk-in units: the WL820 Temperature Cold Room and the DT820RP Redundant Walk-In Cooler and Freezer.

“These state-of-the-art controls also help keep costs down by improving energy efficiency by as much as 50% and protecting the integrity of products for a longer duration,” said Bart Tippmann, president of Polar Leasing.

The WL820 is an 8-ft.-by-20-ft. ground-resting unit designed specifically for the pharmaceutical cold chain, with temperatures ranging from 0 degrees F to minus 22 degrees F. The DT820RP is engineered for customers with precise temperature requirements. Each unit is temperature validated and features a redundant refrigeration system, the company said.

A combo display on the outside of every walk-in unit monitors temperature and light, and features a temperature alarm. Remote connectivity capabilities give users access to real-time control, alerts, and data 24/7. 

Internally, there is a KE2 Therm controller on each evaporator coil. These two controllers are synchronized to provide even run time of the redundant systems, with one operating as primary and the other as a backup. Most pharmaceutical operations require redundant systems to ensure internal products remain consistent. 

Polar Leasing outdoor walk-in freezer and refrigerator rentals are delivered pre-assembled and ready to operate with an electrical connection. The units are American-made, simple to set up, and feature a small footprint.
