Rollex Medical are proud to offer our MATOS PLUS Refrigerator range for the storage of Mother's Milk.
When a Refrigerator is used for Milk (Or “bulk” liquid) storage, we recommend the use of our MATOS PLUS Refrigerator range due to the added benefits of a Hot Gas Defrost and Tropical rated compressor as standard features across this range.
When dealing with larger amounts of liquids, or product stored in glass bottles, the Refrigerator generally works a lot harder, especially with keeping the extremely narrow temperature range of 2-4 degrees required for storage of Mother's Milk.
Gas defrost will combat the ice build-up faster without affecting the internal chamber temperature adversely. A standard defrost would exceed the 2-4 degree range every time.
The Tropical rating improves the cooling performance of the fridge by increasing the working surface area on the Condenser by either utilizing more turns or a double condenser setup. This has a larger compressor and external fans as standard as well. This allows the fridge to deal with fresh product and open door recoveries without affecting the overall stability. For example a non-tropical fridge would struggle to cool new product after an extended door opening and the end result will be a flat temperature curve until the warm product cools down enough. We also see similar behaviour when there is liquid inside the fridge changing state (i.e. water freezing).
