VWR International Ltd launches new energy saving laboratory drying cabinets, in the UK

VWR International UK is excited to announce the release of a new range of glassware drying cabinets, which can help any laboratory save up to half the energy it uses for drying its glassware!

The new E3 range of glass dryers has been developed over three years and is the product of a collaboration between the University of Cambridge, Genlab and the Sustainability Department of VWR International UK.

Traditional drying cabinets use large amounts of energy, and have remained largely unchanged for the last 40 years. Now, VWR UK is able to offer a modern, efficient and safer alternative. Enhanced features of the E3 range include full insulation, precise microprocessor temperature control with safety cut-out and 7-day timer - offering improved safety and energy efficiency.

VWR's Sustainability Manager, Andy Evans said, "These new drying cabinets are the most efficient products of their type currently available. We have been working closely with Genlab to offer a range of cabinets that will provide all laboratories with a unique opportunity to save money".

Andy added, "By incorporating high quality insulation along with features such as a timer, digital controller and display, Genlab have created a cabinet that is energy efficient, easy to program and safer to use".

The E3 cabinets are available in four sizes (100 - 885 litres) and with a choice of convection type (natural convection or fan-assisted). If you would like to know more about these cabinets or find out how much energy your current glass drying cabinets are using, please email VWR International UK
