The avoidance of catastrophes is just one reason eight of the top ten largest Life Science companies have invested in TRAXX. In one documented event, the TRAXX system gave the customer a 3.5-hour early warning (on a weekend) of a compressor failure avoiding a $2.5 million loss—several hours before a temperature alarm would have been issued by a conventional Monitoring 1.0 system.
Increase Asset Service Life
Freezer over/under compressor cycling wastes energy and decreases asset service life by approximately 20%. When operating in this stressed mode, it is common for ULT freezers to still maintain -80ºC temperatures. Most scheduled preventative maintenance inspections would not detect abnormal cycling behavior because it typically takes days or weeks to accurately detect.
