Glassware Washer-LAB 680

The LAB 680 is a high capacity frontal loading glassware washer designed to meet the needs of medium and large facilities.

These units are capable of injection washing and drying on up to 4 levels with 5 possible rack locations providing maximum flexibility through multiple chamber configurations depending on the height of the loaded items.

Each level has telescopic bearing rails that enable easy and safe loading and unloading of the glassware. The drop-down door serves as a loading platform at convenient height for the bottom level.

The washer has on-board chemical storage on a easy access drawer on telescopic rails.

The filtered forced air drying system with adjustable time and temperature settings help to ensure the complete inside and outside drying of all the glassware.
