Stone Ridge, NY, USA  —  SP Scientific has announced the Horizontal Drum Manifold – a new accessory to maximize the performance of its BenchTop Pro freeze dryer while adding bulk and flask drying capabilities for aqueous application.

Designed for use with 3-, 8- and 9-Liter BenchTop Pro units the new manifold provides a highly economic solution to further increase the versatility of the popular tray dryer either purchased with a new system or easily assembled on an existing unit in the field with no additional hardware required.

The Horizontal Drum Manifold comes standard with two adjustable unheated trays that provide ample room for bulk samples such as plants, leaf punches, seeds, well plates,or samples in serum bottles or vials of widely varying sizes. 

If needed, an optional support tray is available to collect condensate and a third shelf is available for applications involving freeze drying samples in 5 ml and 10 ml flasks.  All trays are easily removed for cleaning.

To optimize productivity the Horizontal Drum Manifold includes eight QuickSeal valves that enable parallel connection of flasks and other freeze drying glassware.

Durably constructed with a ‘clear view’ acrylic door and drum the Horizontal Drum Manifold enables easy visual monitoring of the product drying process.

BenchTop Pro freeze dryers have been designed to meet the needs of the most demanding research laboratories. Each system can be configured to meet your present and future needs.

Condenser refrigeration packages of -55 °C, -75 °C, -85 °C and -105 °C can meet the demands of both aqueous and aqueous-solvent based formulations.
