Binder’s new environmentally friendly unit

New for 2022, BINDER KBF-S ECO, the efficient and environmentally friendly constant climate chamber

Binder’s new environmentally friendly unit specialises in precise stability tests under climate conditions that are kept constant for an extended period of time. 

It is ideal for long-term testing and accelerated testing of pharmaceutical products according to the ICH Guideline Q1A, and it regulates a humidity range from 10% RH to 80 % RH and a temperature range from 5°C to 70°C. For users who perform stability tests in these climate conditions, this makes it a cost-effective, environmentally friendly alternative to BINDER’s proven KBF and KBF-S constant climate chambers. 

The KBF-S ECO needs absolutely no refrigerant – alongside its excellent energy efficiency, this is a feature that significantly boosts its environmental and sustainability credentials.

Even with a full load, the climate in the new BINDER constant climate chamber is always at the right level. And if deviations do happen to creep in, they are so slight that they can barely be measured. Fed in from both sides, the horizontal airflow ensures that the climate remains as homogeneous as possible. 

This is where the cutting-edge thermoelectric system comes in, always keeping the climate conditions constant, even under changing conditions.

In addition to the perfect climate, Binder delivers the best usable space in this class. The KBF-S ECO can be packed full so that large quantities of medications can be tested all at the same time, while the climate remains homogeneous. All in all, it’s the perfect recipe for speed, energy efficiency, and success.

Binder vacuum drying chambers are in high demand – particularly since Binder is the only manufacturer in its field that is able to provide units with proven explosion-proof features.

One example of the features in the new vacuum drying chambers are the state-of-the-art controllers, which provide customers with a central location for control. However, customers also have the option of using a touchscreen display, which can show the actual and set pressure and temperature values at the same time. This has the positive effect of allowing users to see the process stage of the chamber that is ongoing at any time.

Automatic drying detection is another entirely new feature. The SmartVent function in Binder vacuum drying ovens instantly detects when the drying process is complete and causes the ventilation to start automatically as a result. This removes the need for users to plan safety margins, reducing process times.

The SmartVent system detects the point at which the pressure starts dropping further after the solvent has fully dried. The ventilation then kicks in automatically, which means that users do not need to worry about whether the sample material is dry or not.

The new vacuum drying chamber can also be programmed to store specific drying sequences in advance. The enlarged viewing window and the optional interior lighting provide an even better picture of the item being dried. With Binder vacuum drying chambers, you can be sure that nothing is left to chance.
