Simbiotix is a pioneering company in the life sciences and aerospace industries, specializing in creating innovative automated solutions. Their products, such as reusable magnetic filtration systems and the IceCam for aircraft safety, significantly enhance operational efficiency by transitioning from manual to automated processes. The life sciences and aerospace sectors are increasingly adopting automation to improve precision, safety, and efficiency, positioning Simbiotix at the forefront of this transformation.

Simbiotix requires a custom 24V air unit for a laboratory application, capable of providing both heating and cooling. Key specifications include the ability to reverse flow for heating and cooling, a reversing valve to cycle the condenser and evaporator, and a temperature range of 3°C to 30°C with an outlet temperature of 3°C. The custom A/C unit must use R290 refrigerant, as R134a is banned in Canada. Additionally, Simbiotix needs the air ports to be side-mounted to reduce the unit’s height and an isolated evaporator located 0.5 meters from the main components in its own enclosure.

RIGID offers a tailored solution with their Micro DC Aircon unit, configured to meet all specified requirements. This A/C includes the reverse flow capability, precise temperature control, R290 compatibility, custom air port placement, and the isolated evaporator setup. This solution supports Simbiotix’s goal of integrating advanced automation into their innovative product lineup.
