PSL launches next generation filter dryer at Interphex

Interphex New York 2017 will take place from 21-23 March 2017 and PSL is launching the next generation of the GFD in North America.

The GFD is a bench top nutsche filter dryer that overcomes challenges with commonly used methods of Buchner filtration and oven drying. The new GFD 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 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. Process control and automation, even of the agitator raise and lower mechanism is performed via the HMI/PLC display for direct and easy equipment usability.

More compact, the new GFD can be integrated in fume hoods while maintaining good process visibility and reduced product exposure. Lab filtration and drying studies are made easy with the next generation GFD Plug & Play system, available with full vacuum and heating ancillaries’ packages.

PSL will exhibit the next generation GFD on their stand 2232 of the Javits Conventions Center, NY.
