Accucold's general purpose series offers reliable cold storage in a variety of designs, including full-sized manual defrost all-refrigerators ideal for laboratory and clinical settings that require temperatures with more stability than traditional no-frost equipment.

Model URM19W is an upright all-refrigerator with an 18.3 cu.ft. interior storage capacity. Manual defrost operation ensures a more stable interior with none of the warming cycles that can compromise temperature in traditional frost-free cooling systems. The dial thermostat is located inside to prevent accidental temperature adjustments, with a thermometer/alarm mounted externally to ensure a readout of the current and high/low interior temperature is visible without opening the door. The temperature probe is encased in glass beads and positioned in a fixed shelf in the center of the unit to best simulate the temperature of stored items. We include an additional probe hole to accommodate additional monitoring equipment. 

This refrigerator features cantilevered shelves to provide more flexibility in storage, with tight spacing between the pilasters so you can adjust as needed. Four adjustable door racks are also included for optional storage. This unit features LED lighting for an efficient view. It comes in a white exterior finish with a right-hand door swing and powerful seal to ensure items are protected. 

The URM19W comes with a right hand door swing and factory-installed lock located towards the top of the door. It includes a 9'5" long power cord with a hospital-grade 'green dot' plug for a more secure connection, ideal for high-traffic environments. The cooling system utilizes hydrocarbon refrigerant for a greener footprint. This model meets NSF-7 commercial standards and is ETL-listed for the U.S. and Canada. For a matching freezer, see model UFM19W.

With its large storage capacity and advanced features, the URM19W is ideal for storing non-critical products in research, clinical, and industrial laboratory applications. Additional choices from Accucold are available, including no-frost options and purpose-built refrigeration approved to the NSF/ANSI Vaccine Storage Standard.
