Machines, chemistry and more: Individual lab glassware reprocessing solutions with System4Lab

Gütersloh/Munich, June 21, 2022 No. 050/2022
  • Standard features on all models include EasyLoad

  • Data documentation and remote monitoring on mobile devices

With more than six decades of experience in the development of laboratory glasswashers, Miele stands for the efficient and safe reprocessing of laboratory glassware like no other company. The current portfolio was developed in close collaboration with reputable glassware manufacturers and ranges from undercounter models to large-chamber units. Patented load carriers, Miele-own process chemicals and various data documentation solutions have now been combined into System4Lab – a tried-and-tested system to meet a broad range of needs.

High-performance undercounter laboratory glasswashers are the staple cleaning products of smaller laboratories, integrating seamlessly into runs of cabinetry and offering spray pressure which is modulated to suit the needs of individual programme phases. This conserves large amounts of water and energy – without compromising on excellent cleaning performance. The EasyLoad accessory system facilitates the fast and automatically correct positioning of laboratory glassware in suitable load carriers. Injector nozzles ensure the thorough cleaning of interior surfaces.

Catering for medium-size laboratories, Miele offers slimline laboratory glasswashers with a width of only 65 cm: an ideal solution wherever large quantities of glassware have to be reprocessed in a limited space. The EasyLoad system will also feature on the new generation which will be available from early 2023 – allowing around twice the number of 100 ml bottles to be reprocessed compared with the previous system.

Large-chamber laboratory glasswashers from the PLW 86 model series meet the needs of large central laboratories requiring high capacity and throughput. Here, too, efficiency can be further increased with EasyLoad. The APLW 511 load carrier increases the maximum capacity for small and medium-size items of laboratory glassware by more than 50%. Additionally, Miele offers a height-adjustable load carrier for these models which takes the physical strain off staff.

With process chemicals from the ProCare Lab series, Miele offers powder and liquid detergents for a variety of applications and soils to ensure the reprocessing of laboratory utensils for analytical work whilst preserving the value of materials. All detergents can be ordered with just a few clicks of the mouse from Miele's online shop for commercial products. Automatic and safe dispensing of liquid products is the responsibility of dispenser modules which also remind users when chemicals need replenishing.

Miele's data transmission to mobile devices simplifies the documentation of cycle reports from up to nine laboratory glasswashers. This presumes the use of the DataDiary app, available to Android and iOS users. Independently of the above and by way of an additional feature, the web-based MieleMOVE portal is available to check remotely which machines are running or whether a sufficient supply of cleaning chemicals is available. Where necessary, Miele Service can be contacted automatically, ensuring that the requisite spare parts are on board for repair work.
