High Capacity Laboratory Glassware Washer and Dryer
The LAB 1500 is a high capacity glassware washer and dryer specially developed for laboratories that require to clean large quantities of items on a daily basis. This lab washer features a full visibility motorized space-saving sliding down door.
Two heavy duty washing pumps dedicated to separate washing – providing a high water flow rate combined with adequate spray pressure – ensure outstanding glassware washing results. The availability of an optional pre heated tank allows to perform a final non recirculated rinse.
This unit is capable of injection washing on up to 6 levels with 8 possible rack locations, providing maximum flexibility through multiple chamber configurations, depending on the height of the loaded items. All the levels are equipped with telescopic bearing rails that enable easy and safe loading and unloading of the glassware. The upper levels can be removed depending on the height of the loaded glassware.
As standard, two peristaltic pumps provide precise dosing of liquid chemical agents. A convenient hinged door allows for easy access to storage of up to two 10-liter / 2.64 Gal US chemical tanks. The optional filtered forced air drying system with adjustable time and temperature settings help to ensure the complete inside and outside drying of all the glassware. To assure full control of the process, the device is controlled by a PLC digital controller with a user-friendly color touch screen HMI.
High and Flexible Capacity
With a chamber volume of ~ 484 lt / 19.95 cu ft, the LAB 1500 has the largest chamber capacity in the market within the smallest footprint. The device is capable of injection washing on up to 6 levels with 8 possible rack locations, providing maximum flexibility through multiple chamber configurations.
High-quality AISI 316 L washing chamber and four rotatory spray arms, two on the bottom and two on the top of the chamber, ensure optimal washing performance. Additional spray arms are available on dedicated upper level wash carts.
