Useful Info Regarding Containers: Determining the "K-Value"
The K-Value of an item provides you with information relative to the amount of heat or cold that is lost through the item.

In order to determine the K-Value of an item (cabinet) the following tests must be conducted:

First Step is to place the cabinet into a "Hot Room"; the temperature of this "Hot Room" must be kept at 20oC.
At least three temperature sensors are placed inside the cabinet in order to measure the temperature inside the cabinet.

A heater is placed inside the cabinet in order to stabilize the temperature inside the cabinet to 35oC. The difference between the inside and outside of the cabinet is called the "Delta T". For example 35 - 20 = 15. Usually this test must be repeated several times while varying the heat output of the heater in order to achieve exactly 35oC.

The heat input (expressed in Watts) which gives you the 35oC inside the test cabinet is the figure you use in the K-Value Formula.

Formula: k = heat input (W) divided by the mean surface (m2) of the cabinet times the Delta T (15). k = W/Sx Delta T.

The K-Value of a good insulated cabinet, or a very well insulated home should be low; the lower the K - Value the better it is. For Blood Refrigerators the K-Value must be below 0.35
