Critical Point Dryer


The K850 combines versatility and ease of operation. Built-in thermo-electric heating and adiabatic cooling allow precise temperature control. The vertical pressure chamber (32 mm diameter x 47 mm) has a side viewing port, which gives a clear view of the liquid meniscus during filling. A magnetic stirrer ensures optimal mixing and exchange of process fluids.

Key features

  • Vertical chamber with top filling and bottom draining
  • Side viewing port – good visibility
  • Built-in adiabatic cooling and thermoelectric heating – accurate temperature control
  • Fine-control needle valve pressure let down – precise control of decompression avoids potential damage to specimens by uncontrolled pressure release
  • Built-in magnetic stirrer- enhanced solvent exchange
  • Pressure monitoring with safety cut-out for over pressure
