At this year's ACHEMA, among the many highlights that BINDER GmbH presented was its thermoelectric cooling incubator with a capacity of 170 liters – an innovation that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The innovative products and technologies attracted industry professionals from a whole range of sectors to the BINDER stand at the trade fair.
Between June 15 and 19, ACHEMA 2015 – the leading international trade fair for the process industry – provided the venue for BINDER GmbH to showcase its products under the motto "Evolution in Simulation Technology – Best Conditions for Your Success". The Tuttlingen-based family company is the world's leading specialist in simulation chambers for scientific and industrial laboratories.
BINDER presented new products and pioneering technologies to industry professionals and, for the first time, the specialists are venturing into the new market territory of machines with capacities of over 1000 liters, with the KBF 1020 constant climate chamber. The large-volume model of the tried-and-tested KBF series features 1,020 liters of usable space. The cube-shaped interior is exceptionally roomy and allows large samples to be stored efficiently. Particularly where the pharmaceutical industry is concerned, it offers clear advantages for carrying out stability tests.
A further highlight of the event, Binder exhibited its thermoelectric cooling incubator with an interior volume of 170 liters – a product that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The fully-fledged table unit provides ample space with a user-friendly depth and is significantly quieter than a comparable compressor unit. Thanks to new stacking options, the cooling incubator is ideally suited to mixed stacking with its smaller sibling, the KT 115, making it extremely flexible to use. A new size has also been introduced for the C series of CO2 incubators: in the future, the standard model for cell cultivation will be available with an expanded interior volume of 170 liters. Up against its 180°C hot air sterilization, potential sources of contamination do not stand a chance.
The new preheating chamber technology developed by BINDER ensures reliable, reproducible incubation conditions. This enables homogeneous temperature distribution thanks to a horizontal airflow on both sides, even when fully loaded. These were benefits that were clear to see for visitors to the BINDER trade fair stand. The units are supplemented by a new, state-of-the-art controller featuring an LCD display, which enables intuitive operation. A team of experts at the stand provided information on the use and function of the different units. They are designed to suit all kinds of applications in the laboratory or in the process industry, and can be used in stress tests of any type. BINDER had even prepared refreshments to help hot and bothered visitors cool down amidst the hustle and bustle of the trade fair – ice cream creations offering an indulgent treat.
