Refrigerators, Morgue, Walk-In

Definition : Refrigerators with a cabinet-like storage compartment large enough to permit a person to enter; they are designed to slow decomposition of stored cadavers in the morgue during autopsy procedures or until the cadaver is disposed of; the refrigerator usually operates at temperatures between 4 and 10 degrees Celsius (39 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit). These refrigerators typically consist of a chamber made with a corrosion-resistant (typically stainless steel) interior, minimizing the risk of adulteration, contamination, and/or corrosion of contents; internal shelving appropriate for accommodation, easy location, and handling of many bodies (e.g., 10, 50); compressors, condensers, evaporators, and tubing. Walk-in morgue refrigerators also include sensors, controls, and monitors; they may include a temperature recording chart and alarms for dependable long-term cadaver storage according to morgue procedures. Walk-in morgue refrigerators are available completely assembled or as separate structural elements (e.g., doors, panels, floors) and units (e.g., refrigeration system, condensing unit) for assembly at user facilities.
