|Eco-friendly ? save water, money, and time Automated, easy to use and requires less glassware handling than traditional methods. Fast, thorough percolating action cleans pipettes inside and out. Programmable cycle settings and user-set delayed start. Stainless steel housing and pipette holder provide stability and durability Compared to traditional siphoning washing/rinsing and oven drying, the ScrubAir consumes less water, time and money, requiring as little as 3 1/4 hours to wash, rinse and dry as many as 60 pipettes. ScrubAir standard wash cycle uses only 12.5 liters of tap or pure water compared to 600 liters used with a siphoning method. Three-cycle programs are factory-set, but may be user-modified, and start time may be delayed up to 8 hours. The LCD shows both the cycle segment and total time remaining. Models include brushed 304 stainless steel and powder-coated steel exterior, pipette holder, and back splash.
The ScrubAir pipette washer/dryer uses water, detergent and compressed air to wash, rinse, and dry volumetric pipettes. Water and detergent are directly injected into the pipettes, then compressed air is introduced into the water line producing a percolating action that scrubs the interior walls. The water is then propelled out the top of the pipettes, washing the exterior of the pipettes as it cascades down. After washing and rinsing, pipettes are dried in two to eight hours. No separate oven is required.
ScrubAir can accommodate pipettes ranging in size from 0.135" (3.4 mm) stem diameter and 7.5" long up to 0.34" (8.6 mm) stem diameter and 25" (635 mm) long. Depending on the bulb and stem diameters, up to 60 small or 12 large pipettes may be washed at one time. Heater models also include a built-in 750 watt heater element, activated during the wash, rinse and dry cycles and a pure water inlet to select up to 10 pure water rinses.
Note: All models require tap/pure feedwater with 3/8" OD (minimum) water line, regulated compressed air with 3/8" OD air line, drain plumbing 1.25" (3.2 cm) ID or larger, and liquid detergent.
