Harkins was contacted as a certified ultra low temp refrigeration contractor on an emergency call by MSD. The Cincinnati sub-zero freezer room had never worked properly from the day of installation 1995 thru 2/98. We responded within 24 hours and analyzed the multitude of problems that existed. Corrective work started immediately and was completed in 9 weeks time. Substantial time, effort and manpower went into the repair. Upon completion, the unit is now able to hold -70 ° F with fluctuation of only .07 % of 1 degree subsequent validation was performed and approved. The $20,000,000.00 of product is now safely conditioned and stored.
