Gfl Water Still - Single Water Still 2001-4

Specifications and features          

  • Water Still for single distillation suitable for bench mounting.  
  • Very good distillate quality; conductivity approx. 2.3 µs / cm at 25 °C (see "Technical Details"). 
  • Thermostatic low water cut-off. 
  • Economical energy consumption by distillation of the heated cooling water. 
  • Evaporator easily accessible for cleaning purposes. 
  • Destillate withdrawal through outlet at the condenser. 
  • CO2 degassing through outlet in the condenser. 
  • Cooling water temperature indicated through a thermometer. 
  • Heating element, evaporator and condenser made of stainless steel. 
  • Outer housing made of electrolytically galvanised sheet steel, electrostatically powder coated with epoxy resin. 
  • Cooling water in- and outlet 1/2" (ø approx. 12.7 mm). 
  • Hoses for water in- and outlet are available as accessory.

GFL Water Stills are used in research and development e. g. for preparing bacteriological and medical samples, for cell and tissue cultures as well as for the production of reagents and unguents. Moreover, distillate is used for cleaning and sterilisation processes, for buffered solutions as well as microbiological and analytical applications.
