Incubator Rooms

CTS manufactures Incubator Rooms for the storage of temperature sensitive products at elevated temperatures. These rooms are typically set to maintain temperatures between 30°C to 40°C. Temperature Control will be maintained within +0.5°C or better.
If you also need humidity control, please see our Temperature and Humidity Rooms.

Room Construction

The room panels will be constructed from foamed-in place urethane insulated modular panels. These modular panels are typically 4″ thick (R34) but can also be supplied in 5″ (R42) and 6″ (R56) thickness. The appropriate panel thickness will be chosen based on the temperature range and application. The urethane to metal bond and 90°  flange with flexible vinyl gaskets will provide an airtight seal as well as tremendous strength. The insulated panels will be UL fire test approved and will have a low flame spread rating of 25 or less. Panels will be tested and approved by Factory Mutual Number 4880, for Class I building type insulated wall and ceiling construction in combination.

Conditioning Equipment

Incubator Rooms typically require constant heating with occasional cooling capability for trim control. CTS uses stainless steel finned strip heaters to raise the temperature of the room. Cooling capability can be provided by the customer’s ventilation air at 55°F or can be provided by adding a refrigeration system for trip control.

CTS offers fan & coil, wall plenum, or remote air handling systems. All systems will utilize proportional control valves to precisely control the room temperature. Redundant conditioning systems with automatic switchover can be supplied for critical applications.


All control panels will be equipped with selector switches and pilot lights for easy operation. Each selector switch will be identified by engraved nameplates. The recessed control panel will be hinged for easy opening by maintenance personnel. Once the panel is swung open, all relays, contactors, and other enclosed control circuits will be readily exposed for simple maintenance. All control panels will be equipped with a lockable, clear acrylic cover. All CTS Environmental Rooms are controlled by solid state Proportional, Integral and Derivative (PID) controllers for precise temperature control. All Incubator Rooms will be equipped with high/low temperature alarms. Alarm systems will include indicator lights, audible alarm, and dry contacts for remote monitoring.
