SlimLine lab washers are big on capacity, but small on space
25 Apr 2019
Miele’s latest SlimLine glassware washers are designed to provide maximum capacity with a minimal footprint, making daily laboratory tasks easier and safer.
The freestanding washers are 650mm wide – which is 250mm narrower than existing Miele lab washers with similar capacity. The large load capacity is thanks to a chamber height of 540mm (two rack levels) or 690mm (three rack levels), plus telescopic interior racking. A 316L grade stainless steel chamber comes as standard, providing resistance against rusting and acid and alkaline exposure, for increased longevity.
The range is customisable with hundreds of accessories to promote safer loading and improved cleaning of a variety of glassware.
Miele’s Dr Bernd Eschweiler spent 12 months developing the product line and believes it will radically improve the operation of many lab environments. He said: “We have worked hard to make continual design enhancements throughout product development to deliver new or improved features in this washer, in addition to its compact footprint.
“For example, the SlimLine features 40 wash programmes, faster wash cycles and better water efficiency. Customers have also been impressed by the accessories, which are customisable so different height injectors can be used within the same rack, reducing the need to purchase and store multiple variants.”
SmartLoad accessories, including an adjustable cover for smaller items, are designed to securely hold a wide selection of lab glassware to reduce the risk of potentially dangerous or time-wasting in-wash breakages. There is a dedicated wash carriage for 50-litre carboys.
Users can customise wash cycles by programming settings via the easy-to-clean SoftTouch glass control panel. The full glass door and interior lighting allow easy viewing of contents.
An optional electric boiler provides fast heating on short cycles and the electric powered hot-air drying system features an integrated HEPA H14 filter, sterilising the intake of air.
Further optional features include a conductivity monitor to minimise any carry-over residue and in-built water softening capability.
As with all Miele machines, parts will remain available for 15 years after the item goes out of production. For more information or to order email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Miele GB website.
