The Autosamdri®-815B, Series A was developed by Dr. A. J. Tousimis and a team of long-standing associates within the tousimis® organization to meet the needs of facilities processing large quantities or large samples. The Autosamdri®-815B is an instrument that works with you and for you, i.e. automatic (works by itself) when you forget it and manually if desired. The reaction of the first laboratories that have used this unique instrument has overwhelmed us!
The chamber of the Autosamdri®-815B has a 4.50" internal diameter (ID) chamber.
  • Extra large chamber capable of drying very large or numerous smaller samples.
  • Excellent choice for active facility enhancing process CPD capability.
  • Chamber Inserts* reduces chamber ID to 3", 2" or 1.25" I.D. maximizing LCO2 consumption efficiency and process time.
  • Vernier handles on all metering valves allow for reproducible settings.
  • Indicator control LED's panel effectively indicate run status.
  • Internal filtration* protect samples and valves down to 0.5µm.
  • EZ top loading process chamber.
  • Under-lit chamber with viewing port aids visualization of chamber status.
  • Internal surfaces inert to LCO2 and ultra-pure alcohols.
  • Advanced solid state reliable electronics.
  • Microprocessor* controller for repeatable operating parameters insuring reproducibility of results via Automatic process.
  • Integrated temperature control.
  • Fast adiabatic chamber cooling* with CO2.
  • Static pressure control module for automatic pressure stability.
  • Tough, solvent resistant cabinet.
  • SOTER™ Condenser* is included with system to capture waste alcohol and deaden PURGE exhaust noise.
  • All electronic and other components meet UL, CE and/or U.S. Military Specifications.
  • Cabinet: 14.25"(W)x 11.75"(H) x 25.0"(L) [36.2cm(W) x 29.8cm(H) x 63.5cm (L)]
  • System Set-Up Area Required: 42"(W) x 30"(D) [107cm(W) x 76cm(D)]
  • Chamber size: 4.5" I.D. x 1.25" Depth
  • Temperature gauge range: -30°C to 60°C, Pressure gauge range: 0 to 2,000 psi.
  • 120V / 50-60Hz (Other voltage units also available: Please inquire)
Standard Accessories
