Meet Your New Lab Assistant

Lab scale filtration and drying process can be a real challenge…

The GFD® bench top nutsche filter dryer overcomes challenges with commonly used methods of Buchner filtration and oven drying. The new GFD® efficiently performs laboratory process development combining filtration, solids isolation, cake washing and vacuum drying all in one step. The final product is also fully recovered through an unique removable filtration basket.

The new GFD® from Powder Systems Ltd (PSL) is a Lab Filter Dryer designed to make your life in the laboratory easier!

With new features such as data logging, accurate control of the agitator speed and recipe input, the GFD can be autonomous and run processes without human intervention. You can save all of the process data and export for further analysis and repeatability.

Process control and automation, even of the agitator raise and lower mechanism is performed via the HMI/PLC display for a direct and easy product usability.

Now more compact and providing enhanced ergonomics the new GFD can be integrated in fume hoods while maintaining good process visibility, batch homogeneity and reduced product exposure.

Your lab filtration and drying studies are made easy with the next generation GFD Plug & Play system, available with full vacuum and heating ancillaries package including Huber Petite Fleur Temperature Control Unit.

PSL is launching the next generation of the revolutionary GFD®, exclusively at Lab Innovations 2016.

PSL will exhibit the next generation GFD® on their stand D12 at Lab Innovations on the 2nd and 3rd November 2016 at the NEC Birmingham, UK. Book a demonstration now to learn more about your new lab assistant (click here or email

Due to its direct scale-up abilities, the GFD® is ideal for feasibility studies and trials before investing in a large scale agitated nutsche filter dryer. The GFD® Vessel Kits are available in glass borosilicate 3.3, stainless steel 316L and alloy C22 ranging from the 0.3L Mini Lab GFD®, 2L Lab GFD® up to the 10L Maxi Lab GFD®.
