Underbench Washer with chemical storage and direct injection drying

The Lancer 820 LX undecounter glassware washer dryer has the same chamber size as the 810/815 LX but is 300 mm (12”) wider externally as it has a built-in drawer for the safe storage and input of chemicals. More importantly it has powerful forced hot air drying through the injectors and in the chamber to ensure complete and rapid drying of glassware both inside and out… ready to use immediately! Rack systems are common across the 810-1300 LX and 1800 LXA models enabling economical upgrade when expanding the capacity of your lab.

All Lancer washers feature these key benefits:

  • Fast cycles and outstanding results from powerful wash action and design
  • Easy to use microprocessor controls with self-diagnostic software and alarms
  • Flexibility of multi-level injection washing and interchangeable racks
  • All sizes and types of glassware cleaned with chamber configuration choices
  • Ergonomic and safe loading of racks on load bearing telescopic runners
  • Choice of preset and user-customized (PIN code protected) programs
  • Accurate and repeated intake of cleaning chemicals by automatic peristaltic dosing pumps
  • Robust high grade 304 L and 316L stainless steel construction (varies by model)
  • IQ/OQ protocol and validation options available
  • Cost effective – low life cycle costs and efficient operation uses less resources and inventory
  • Eco-friendly low energy, chemicals and water usage

Direct injection cleaning

The 820 LX provides injection washing and drying on one or two levels simultaneously, delivering the wash/rinse solutions into narrow-necked glassware to provide for efficient and effective cleaning. Low profile, rear manifold connections provide wash/rinse solution to the racks, maximizing usable rack surface, which is often reduced by common center manifold designs. 100% of the chamber volume is then available for an unbeaten washing capacity in this size/range of glassware washer dryer. HEPA filtered chamber and direct injection drying reduces cycle time by drying glassware and labware inside and out. This fast turnaround of glassware increases productivity by reducing the waiting time for glassware.

Ease of Use

The 820 LX features microprocessor controls with 4 pre-set programs for chemistry glassware, bacteriology/virology (high temperature), stubborn stains (agar) and volumetric glassware (lower temperature). For other applications the 820 LX offers 38 additional programs that can be modified to fit any application. These custom programs offer the user the ability to easily adjust cycle parameters for program phases, temperatures, phase times and chemical dosing. The system control panel is user friendly with a 7 button keypad and 2 ½ inch LCD interface. Self-diagnostic software provides visual and audible alarms to quickly alert the user in the event of a malfunction, displaying the error and allowing the owner to avoid costly service calls. Additionally with on-board storage capacity, the 820 LX provides added safety.

Unbeaten cleaning and drying results

Lancer’s superior hydraulic design maximizes flow and pressure with a single, direct fluid
path and no intermediate accessories. Additionally, racks are held in place by the door to ensure positive connection without the loss of pressure and flow that is common with other designs. Top and bottom spray arms provide thorough coverage for the interior and exterior of glassware. Water rinses are programmable for hot, cold and hot/cold DI water. These features allow for maximum use of the space within the chamber and ensure cleanliness. This design enhances full interchangeability of the racks between levels, providing further flexibility and reducing the number or racks needed.


Superior construction

The Lancer 820 LX washer is built to the highest standards. With AISI 304 L stainless steel and electronically welded chamber (under Argon protection), the unit is fully enclosed on all 6 sides to protect components and wiring. Maximum durability of the washer components ensures a long life span. Additionally, the 820 LX is insulated with synthetic rubber based, closed cell foam to guard against heat lost and reduce noise levels creating lower utility costs and a better user experience in the lab.

Inventory systems

Having the right rack or accessory to fit your cleaning application is key to ensuring cleanliness and increasing productivity. With this in mind, Lancer provides versatile rack systems to accommodate all types of glassware and laboratory items. These rack systems include a wide range of accessories with various configurations of sizes and quantities of jets or baskets to handle all types of glass and lab ware from bottles to pipettes. Racks can be interchanged between levels to achieve further flexibility.
