Benchtop Nutsche Filter Dryer Improves Laboratory Process Development

March 13, 2017

PSL’s GFD benchtop nutsche filter dryer combines filtration, solids isolation, cake washing, and vacuum drying in one step.

Powder Systems Limited (PSL)’s next generation of its GFD benchtop nutsche filter dryer overcomes challenges with commonly used methods of Buchner filtration and oven drying. The dryer efficiently performs laboratory process development, combining filtration, solids isolation, cake washing, and vacuum drying all in one step. The final product is also fully recovered through a unique removable filtration basket.

With new features such as data logging, accurate control of the agitator speed and recipe input, the GFD can be autonomous and run processes without human intervention. Process data can be saved and exported for further analysis and repeatability. Now more compact and providing enhanced ergonomics, the new GFD can be integrated in fume hoods while maintaining good process visibility and reduced product exposure. Lab filtration and drying studies can be performed with the GFD plug-and-play system, available with full vacuum and heating ancillaries’ packages.
