We manufacture two sizes of vacuum, heated, gel dryer, 45 x 34 cm and 50 x 40 cm. These are very versatile, able to dry single gels up to 40 x 50 cm in size or multiple small format gels. The units have two timers, one for the temperature and one for the vacuum pump. The drying temperature can be set between ambient and 90°C and regulated to ±2°C, and the drying time set up to 5 hours in 1 minute steps.
The vacuum pump can also be timed to automatically switch off, any time up to 5 hours in 1 minute steps. The units are extremely robust in their construction. The base is of cast aluminium for even distribution of heat. The user friendly control panel is constructed from stainless steel for strength. Although solidly built the units are extremely light for easy transportation.
The GelMaster™ vacuum system features two pumps in one package: a room temperature vapour trap acts as a pump by condensing the hot vapours from the gel dryer and trapping them from the rest of the system; this is followed by a high efficiency diaphragm pump, delivering a powerful, non-fluctuating vacuum for fast, smooth drying, which acts as the primary vacuum source. The pump is so efficient, one GelMaster™ can be connected to three gel dryer simultaneously.
To operate , simply connect the vacuum line to the gel unt and power up. As the gel is drying, the vapour trap condenses the vapour and removes liquid from the system. It's 1.5L. capacity allows between 10-15 gels to be dried before the trap needs to be drained - simply open the stopcock when the level reached the red indicator zone, and run off. The GelMaster™ trapping medium can be used repeatedly as it does not mix with the condensate.
