The GFD®Lab is a benchtop Agitated Nutsche Filter Dryer (ANFD) that efficiently performs laboratory solid-liquid separation processes. It is a miniature version of a production filter-dryer, allowing effective filtration and drying with the same reliability and benefits as full size PSL ANFD filter dryers.
It is designed to overcome well-known production challenges faced by manufacturers when using traditional production methods such as Büchner filtration and oven tray-drying and is the ideal technology to successfully complete scale-up and scale-down activities and to obtain predictive performance results.
The GFD®Lab consists of an agitated vessel designed to work under vacuum and under pressure. The vessel can be made of either glass, stainless steel or Alloy-22 and has a heated jacket for efficient drying. Solid-liquid separation is performed within its unique filtration basket, which can be removed to ease and maximise product collection.
The GFD®Lab is serving research institutes, laboratories, universities and companies from a wide range of industries. The technology is assisting scientists and process engineers to innovate and optimise their unique processes, worldwide.
