Solar Bod Incubator India and Solar Bod Incubator Manufacturers India


WEIBER now introduces solar powered incubators. We know India is a climatic rich country, and receives sun rays almost a year. Seeing green and healthy environment as todays trend, we bring to you solar powered incubators using solar energy to convert to electrical energy to run the various incubators.

Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) incubators or low temperature incubators enable end users to determine levels of organic matter and nitrogen in wastewater samples. This wastewater must be effectively measured for contaminates, treated and then released back into the environment without posing a threat to the water supply system. Recently, stricter enforcement by government regulatory agencies charged with monitoring air and water quality has forced a greater number of organizations to actively test and treat their wastewater. BOD incubators facilitate the storage of wastewater samples, and can accommodate from 62 – 565 BOD bottles.

The solar panel converts sunlight into DC power or electricity to charge the battery. This electricity (charge) is controlled via a charge controller which ensures that battery is properly charged and not damaged. DC appliances can then be powered directly from the battery.

Method 1. Accessory: AC/DC adaptor.

The incubator can be powered by AC power (standard wall plug in a work space). This allows the incubator to be powered using conventional wall outlets and the unit can work without solar panels, batteries or a charge controller

Method 2. Accessory: solar panels, battery, charge controller.

The solar panel converts sunlight into DC power or electricity to charge the battery. This electricity (charge) is controlled via a charge controller which ensures that the battery is charged properly and not damaged. The solar incubator can then be powered directly from the battery.

Method3. Accessory: charge controller, solar panel, battery, AC/DC auto transfer switch, AC/DC adaptor.

This method combines method 1 and 2. By adding an AC/DC auto transfer switch, the incubator can operate using AC power. This is useful when the battery is discharged due to multiple rainy or cloudy days. When the battery can't provide needed electricity, the auto transfer switch can automatically switch to AC electricity (110 V /220 V). When the battery is recharged, the incubator will go back to DC solar power (12V/24 V).

    The battery most commonly used is the lead acid type, long life, deep cycle batteries are preferred. A capacity to run the incubator for two days without sun is recommended.

    Charge regulator

    The charge regulator maintains the power supply within the current and voltage range tolerated by the incubator and prevents overcharge of the battery. Some models include an audible alarm or warning light to signal when battery voltage becomes low

    AC/DC automatic switch

    The automatic switch allows for power priority. If plugged into the DC port, the battery has priority. The system will operate using DC (battery power) and will only switch to AC power if the battery is exhausted. If plugged into the AC port, the system will operate using AC power and will switch to DC power (battery) only in the case of a power outage. The DC port is preferred as this does not cost any money to operate.

  3. Material Of Construction: Castor wheel mounted cabinet is double walled with inner chamber of Stainless steel sheet of grade SS 304. Outer wall is constructed out of heavy gauge PCRC steel sheet duly degreased and pretreated with primers , duly painted with attractive stove enamel or powder coated .

    The compressor is mounted perfectly to ensure recommended level of sound and vibration.

    (B.) REFRIGERATION CONTROL (a).Low and High Pressure switch

    Which ensures the compressor and refrigeration system when low pressure will occurs it trip off the compressor. This is the only operator friendly switch can easily reset.

    (b).Hand shut off Valve

    Is the only Condensing Unit, which is equipped with it. This valve is used for pump down the total gas in to the condenser & receiver in the faulty condition.

    (c).Liquid Dryer

    Which is equipped in the liquid line for ministration of moisture in the liquid. It will collect all the moisture in side the refrigeration line as well as gas.

    (d).Moisture Indicator of

    The sight glass area in the Moisture Indicator shows at a glance the condition of the refrigerant system. The moisture indicator element changes color and indicate if the system is safely dry, or dangerously wet.

    (e). Solenoid Valve

    In most refrigeration applications, in order to automatically control the flow of fluids in a system, it is necessary to be able to start or stop the flow in the refrigerant circuit. An electrically operated solenoid valve is usually used for this purpose. Its basic function is the same as a manually operated shutoff valve, but it can be positioned in remote locations, and may be conveniently controlled by simple electrical switches.
