Detail Information

Description :

The Dry Heating System with Single Wall Dish Bottom Vessel and Heating Blanket is designed to cover a wide range of applications such as microbial and cell culture. Depending on the cell types, users are able to choose between different impellers and motor speeds. The blanket heating method provides a precise, sopisticated, and fast temperature control. Compre to pricy SIP systems, this system is capable of providing larger vessel volumes (15 and 20 liter) as an economical and alternative option for your scale-up process.
