GFD® – Lab Nutsche Filter Dryers

PSL’s lab filter dryer (GFD) is an innovative piece of small scale synthesis/ lab filtration and drying or pilot plant equipment. The GFD is a miniature version of a production filter dryer allowing easy lab scale filtration, washing and drying with the same reliability and benefits as PSL's full size agitated nutsche filter dryer products. The GFD is suitable for any laboratories' needs and is available in three sizes: MINI LAB (0.002m.sq.), LAB (0.01m.sq.) and MAXI LAB (0.05m.sq.), it's technology supersedes dated methods such as Buchner filtration. The vessel is available in glass borosilicate or metallic option for higher pressure requirements. A range of filtration material and porosities are also available.

As a piece of advanced lab filtration and drying apparatus, the GFD works on a vacuum, has a heated jacket for drying and our unique lift-out filtration basket for complete collection of the product. The GFD is an enhanced simplistic version of a PSL production filter dryer that provides modern filtration and drying techniques for small scale synthesis or formulation.
