In many laboratories, bench space is at a premium. The DIS 6000 has been designed as a direct response to this problem. With a footprint of just 650 mm (W) x 450 mm (D) x 640 mm (H) the DIS 6000 is one of the most compact Dissolution Testers available on the market today.

In many laboratories, bench space is at a premium. The DIS 6000 has been designed as a direct response to this problem. With a footprint of just 650 mm (W) x 450 mm (D) x 640 mm (H) the DIS 6000 is one of the most compact dissolution testers available on the market today.
The unit has six stirred test vessels arranged in two rows of three. Heating is provided by an independent heater/circulator which avoids the need for priming and can be quickly removed for maintenance, without compromising the whole tester. The heater/circulator is fitted with a special low vibration impellor which in comprehensive tests has proved to be equal to or less in terms of vibration measurements than an external heater/circulator. A low water-level safety cut-out is provided as standard.
A common complaint from customers is that their existing tester is just too overladen with software gimmickry for day-to-day use. For this reason, considerable attention was given in the design to ensuring that the number of actions necessary to perform a test was kept to a minimum.
Once the test sequence has been initiated, all that it is necessary to start the test is to input the rpm and nominal temperature required, together with the duration of the test and the report interval (the time interval during the test at which the actual rpm and temperature is logged and subsequently reported), introduce the samples and press START.
Interchangeable paddles & baskets as standard
During the test the following information is shown on the display:
- Nominal and actual rpm
- Nominal and actual temperature
- Preset test duration and time elapsed
- An audible alarm alerts the user that the test is completed.
The unit is provided with a parallel printer connection as standard for print-out of time, date, bath i.d., serial no. and date of calibration together with the speed and temperature at operator selectable time intervals during the test.
A bi-directional RS232 interface on the back panel allows communication with external devices and incorporation into automated systems. In all other respects, the Dissolution Tester DIS 6000 is similar in construction to the DIS 8000 described on the preceding pages. For more information.
