Typically unefficient and expensive to run, Genlab’s new “E3” range of glassware drying cabinets are unique – first to market, energy efficient, safer and cheaper to run.

Working with the University of Cambridge, Genlab has developed units that represent a novel, sustainable solution to glassware drying. In addition they’re much easier to use.

Key features include:

  • Fully insulated with adjustable vent cover
  • Integral 7 Day timer with display
  • Digital controller with fixed over-temperature
  • Safety cut-out
  • Adjustable shelf runners with removable
  • Chrome shelves
  • Lockable castors on the 425 and 885 litre models
  • Easy clean powder coated body with toughened
  • Glass doors

Benefits & cost saving:

  • Low energy consumption – ≥50% lower than traditional cabinets
  • Low heat output – reducing air conditioning costs
  • Fully insulated – safer for end users
  • Easy, specific temperature controller
  • Integral programmable 7 day timer – ON/OFF to reflect your needs
  • Convection or fan – heat up time < 1 hour

Power requirements 220-240 V, 50 Hz, 1 ph
Construction Construction Powder coated paint, with stainless steel interior
Energy consumption (kWh/day @75 °C)
Natural convection 5.56 8.65 13.27 N/A
Fan circulation 8.35

18.32 27.18

Moisture removal – convection vs. fan circulation*

Unit – set at 75°C Water loss (g/hr) kWh/day
Unit A (82 l) 22.02 11.184
E3 Convection (100 l) 22.80 5.560
E3 Fan (100 l) 43.56 8.350

E3 fan units are able to remove approximately double the moisture of a convection unit, the time taken to dry a load is therefore halved. As a result the energy used to dry a load is actually lower for a fan unit compared to a convection unit.

*Note: All units tested were at a set temperature of 75 °C (empty chamber) and the ambient temperature was 22 °C. Energy consumption figures will differ based on unit set temperature and ambient conditions.
