You probably do not need an explosion proof refrigerator. A flammable storage refrigerator is less expensive, and will protect its contents from ignition. A more expensive explosion proof refrigerator is needed only when the outside area surrounding the refrigerator contains flammable vapors.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] small explosion proof refrigerators

We have an area near our new NMR where we will be storing deuterated organic solvents. I have convinced my colleague who is in charge of the NMR that we can't use a simple dorm fridge for storing the small volumes of solvents. But I would love to follow up with him on any iinfo all of you could provide about inexpensive small (5 cu ft) flammable storage refrigerators or explosion proof fridges.

Grateful for any help,

Kyle Strode
