Initial testing - Short term test and 24-hour test
All Gram BioLine cabinets undergo extensive testing prior to being released. These tests include.
- Electrical safety test
An electrical safety test is a pivotal component of our FAT. The purpose of it is to test if it is as safe as designed to be and it meets the necessary electrical safety standards. During the test, various electrical parameters such as voltage, current, insulation resistance, grounding, and leakage current are measured to ensure that the equipment is functioning as expected and is not posing any safety risks to the users. Any discrepancies or deviations from the safety standards are identified and corrected before the equipment is installed and put into operation. This helps to prevent potential hazards and ensures the safety of patients, end users and the safety of the cabinets’ surroundings.
- Refrigeration system leak detection
Refrigeration system leak detection is equally essential. The purpose of this test is to detect any refrigerant leaks that may occur during the operation of the equipment. Leaks cause a loss of refrigerant, which can affect the performance of the system. Given our extensive use of environmentally friendly refrigerants potential leaks with natural refrigerants will not harm the environment.
Short term test
As part of the Factory Acceptance Test, a comprehensive evaluation of various components is performed to ensure that they operate in accordance to our specifications and the requirements of our clients. A critical aspect of this evaluation involves a short-term test that focuses on monitoring how the cabinet draws power.
This test involves a sequential start and ramping of components to assess their behavior and verify that they operate within predefined limits. By performing this component check, we can identify any deviations or anomalies early on and rectify them.
All Gram BioLine cabinets are delivered with a 24-hour temperature performance test.
The 24-hour product test is an integral component of our quality control process for Gram BioLine cabinets, and it serves as a testament to our commitment to delivering reliable and high-performance products. Ultimately allowing us to verify the product's performance before it leaves the production line.
Additionally, we supply documentation with each cabinet, which substantiates an accepted sequence of Factory Acceptance Tests (FATs), providing our clients with the assurance that each cabinet has undergone rigorous testing and meets our specifications.
During the 24-hour test, we apply strict limits for temperature stability, pull-down, and energy consumption, providing a well-rounded suite of acceptance criteria that our products must comply with. This ensures that our cabinets operate optimally under a wide range of conditions.
The test is conducted with an empty cabinet, in the center of the storage compartment using a calibrated probe all measurements being in air. This standardized approach to testing enables us to provide consistent and accurate results for each Gram BioLine cabinet we manufacture.
Our commitment to extensive factory acceptance tasing and adherence to standards and regulations underscores our dedication to delivering world-class solutions.
We pride ourselves in ensuring that customers receive high-quality products that perform well and consistently and meet or exceed regulatory and standard compliance. Our belief in our products are shown in the degree of availability and transparency that we supply - not only in regards to FAT documentation but on a whole.
Ultimately, the combined value of our FAT with Initial testing, Short-term tests and 24-hours test does not stop at quality assurance. It gives customers a suite of valid documentation and performance references for further onsite validation – all being part of the Gram BioLine package.
