Compact, bench-top design, Don’t waste time with slow & messy defrosting

The hot gas defrost in the BenchTop Pro allows for fast turnaround time and helps minimize clean up efforts when having to pour warm water into a condenser. In addition, corrosive solvents which are more active at ambient and higher temperatures will spend a minimum amount of dwell time in the condenser with fast hot gas defrost-no need to wait overnight to drain the system.
