Tousimis advanced manual critical point dryer CPD samdri PVT-3D
advanced manual CPD system


        Tousimis AutoSAMDRI-815B, series A extra large chamber critical point dryer

The advanced manual SAMDRI-PVT-3D CPD delivers highly reproducible via manual controls. The CPD chamber, controls and display meters are all conveniently located in a compact desktop cabinet for ease of operator control. Automatic critical point temperature and pressure regulation are standard features of the advanced manual SAMDRI-PVT-3D. This budget friendly system is intended for low volume sample preparation and educational settings. This manual systems includes many advanced features:

  • Compact table top size with small footprint
  • Precise flow control via micro metering valves
  • Reproducible settings though vernier handles on metering valves
  • Easy top load process chamber
  • Under-lit chamber with view port to monitor chamber status
  • Internal 0.5µm particulate filtration protect samples and valves
  • Automatic critical point temperature-pressure regulation for system safety
  • Fast adiabatic chamber cooling with CO2 (<1 minute @ room temperature)
  • Internal surfaces inert to LCO2 and ultra-pure alcohols
  • Tough, solvent resistent cabinet
  • Includes standard accessory kit (see below)
  • Optional SOTER Condenser available to capture waste alcohol and eliminate purge exhaust noise
  • 2 year warranty on all parts and labour
