Glassware Washer-LAB 500 CL

The LAB 500 CL is an under counter washer disinfector designed to handle a wide range of laboratory glassware granting an automatic washing, thermodisinfection and forced hot air drying treatment.

The electronic programmable microprocessor is capable of storing up to 40 washing programs: 20 standard pre-programmed cycles and 20 additional adjustable and password protected so the customer can configure specialized programs for their
independent needs. The user can customize any parameter needed to a wash cycle.

This unit has 2 separate washing and drying injection connections allowing the use of dedicated upper and lower washing carts.

The upper level has telescopic bearing rails enabling the use of specific upper wash carts. The drop-down door provides a loading platform for lower and dual injection wash carts for a convenient loading and unloading job.
