BenchTop Manifold Freeze Dryer

Intuitive and easy to use BenchTop Manifold Freeze Dryer.  With a market proven design and the most advanced microprocessor control available on benchtop unit, the BenchTop Manifold Freeze Dryer exceeds customer demand. This freeze dryer is cost effective and consistently a high performance bench top manifold freeze dryer.

The BENCHTOP Series has a 2L per 24 hour condensing rate. Two models are available: the BT48 and BT 85. The BT48 is the ideal match for water based samples with a -48C condenser. For samples containing solvents or with low melting points, The BT85 is the perfect match with -85 C condenser which will provide maximum performance in a benchtop freeze dryer.

Overall, this benchtop manifold freeze dryer is the ideal fit for labs that need quick turn-around, hot gas defrost supplies fast/automatic defrosting. Depending on your needs, select either our 6 or 12 port manifold. Both options provide ample space for small and large samples to be dried simultaneously.

3Gen Microprocessor Controls

Easy to use, easy to read. Millrock has taken bench-top freeze drying to a new level with the new 3Gen control system. The ‘READY’ indicator and auto power-outage recovery are a few of the key features that make this system so easy to use. With a backlit display and industrial tested microprocessor, freeze drying has never been easier. Display parameters include vacuum, condenser temperature, run time, ambient temperature, and even displays when to maintain your vacuum pump oil.
