Miele has introduced the PLW 86xx, a large chamber laboratory washer that features a large loading capacity and a functional, compact design.

The washer comes equipped with a variable speed circulation pump, a flush-fitted 7” control panel with three-color interior chamber lighting, and the option to add on a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) H14 filter, steam condenser, and a printer, according to a Feb. 17, 2020 company press release. Additionally, the new design introduces water and power savings with separate recycling and pre-heating tanks that reuse the final rinse water and make sure the water is available at the required temperature, which reduces cycle time, according to the company.

“This range offers very significant savings on utilities, right from the first wash, which really mount up over time,” said Dr. Bernd Eschweiler of Miele, in the press release. “Plus the EasyLoad accessory range makes them highly flexible-able to safely and simply accommodate items from 5-mL vials to 50-L carboys. Its environmental benefits are also proving attractive. As well as offering impressive energy and water savings, the machines are built from 93% fully recyclable materials.”
