An international manufacturer of electronic components requested the participation of AFIS S.L. regarding a complaint that was made against it, as a manufacturer of the thermostats installed in the control system of the cold room of a hospital pharmacy.
The research carried out by the experts in AFIS S.L. proved that the thermostats manufactured by the company, installed in the two control panels, were not the original cause of the malfunction of the refrigeration unit inside the walk-in freezer where the damaged medicines and vaccines were stored.
Thus, AFIS S.L. completed the investigation discarding any possible link between the electronic components manufacturer and the events occurred, marking an improper electrical operation, external to the thermostats, as the original cause of the fire which started the double alarm system in the room.
