What is lab drying rack?

The laboratory instruments and equipment for drying are included freeze dryers blast dryers vacuum dryers, laboratory dehumidifiers, glass air dryers, lab drying rack, etc. These are commonly used instruments for the laboratories of scientific research units, universities and colleges, biochemistry, agricultural research, environmental protection, enterprises, and so on.

Lab drying rack

A laboratory drying rack is a laboratory pegboard used to hang and discharge glassware in the laboratory. As a laboratory device, a drying rack in laboratory is used to hold multiple test tubes upright at the same time. Test tubes, which are made of glass, are delicate and fragile equipment.

The lab dish rack is available in different varieties and sizes. It can be used for glassware of different materials in the laboratory room, such as funnels, pipettes, mixing balls, slides, corks, tubes, etc. Aside from this, the nails on the drying rack are easily removed and replaced in order to keep the laboratory rack clean and avoid contamination with other instruments used on the same rack. Any normal laboratory requires at least two or three drying racks per lab.

Other drying equipment

Freeze Dryer
It can provide a highly automated and high-quality freeze-drying environment, which is ideal for small and medium-sized laboratories to complete the freeze-drying of small and medium batches and multi-species materials.

Electro-thermostatic blast oven
It is used for: drying of glassware, thermal denaturation and thermal hardening experiments of samples, excluding residual moisture in specimens, dry heat sterilization of glassware for microorganisms; preheating before heating experiments, hardening or softening experiments of food and chemical substances when heating, excluding moisture, extending the preservation time of food under severe conditions and construction materials; drying, baking, disinfection, sterilization and material denaturation tests for drying and heat-resistant experiments of electronic components.

It is mainly used for drying, baking, heat treatment, and thermal processing of substances. It can be used in the field of agricultural production, scientific research, and experimental reality. It is also suitable for scientific research units, colleges and universities, laboratories, etc. to do the drying, baking, wax melting, sterilization, drying, and disinfection, as well as general constant temperature test.

Vacuum drying oven
It is widely used in biochemistry, agricultural scientific research, environmental protection, and other research applications, for powder drying, baking and sterilization, and sterilization of various types of glass containers. It is very suitable for drying heat-sensitive, easily decomposed, easily oxidized substances and complex composition items for fast and efficient drying treatment.

Water Bath
Water baths are widely used for drying, concentration, distillation, and impregnation of chemical reagents and biological products. They can also be used for water bath constant temperature heating and other temperature tests, which is an indispensable tool for biological, genetic, virus, aquatic, environmental protection, health, biochemical laboratory, analysis room, education, and scientific research.

Oil Bath
The oil bath is also known as an electric constant temperature oil bath, constant temperature oil bath, or oil bath heater. The inner liner is made of a stainless-steel plate and precision machining process, with high-temperature resistance and corrosion resistance. It usually adopts an intelligent microcomputer temperature control instrument, LED digital display, intuitive and accurate. It can be widely used in scientific research, colleges and universities, and other enterprises and institutions in laboratory distillation, drying, and concentration. It can also be used for constant temperature test experiments and auxiliary heating, etc.

Laboratory dehumidifier
The instrument consists of a compressor, heat exchanger, condenser, fan, water tank, housing, and controller. Its working principle is as follows: the fan will inhale the humid air into the machine, and through the compressor refrigeration system will condenser surface down to the air below the dew point temperature. At this time, when the humid air passes through the condenser, the water in the air will be decomposed and attached to the surface of the condenser, the water will flow along with the hydrophilic platinum on the condenser to the water tray and then flow to the water tank or drainage pipe discharge, dehumidification of the dry cold air after the heat exchanger heated and discharged from the machine. This cycle brings down the humidity in the room.

Glass instrument air dryer
Glass instrument air dryer is also known as glass instrument dryer, glassware dryer, glass instrument airflow dryer, glass dryer, airflow dryer, test tube dryer, etc. This instrument is a piece of indispensable drying equipment in all kinds of glass instruments laboratories and laboratories. It is a rapid drying operation for test tubes, beakers, and other glassware in laboratories of universities and colleges, the chemical industry, food processing, and other fields.

Types of lab drying rack

Lab glassware drying rack

Laboratory glass instruments can be divided into ten categories, they are:
1) Beaker;
2) Tube (cuvette);
3) Bottles and buckets;
4) Measuring instruments (measuring bottles);
5) Sets of instruments;
6) Vacuum instruments;
7) Sand core filter;
8) Standard grinding apparatus;
9) Thermometer & Float meter;
10) Other laboratory glass equipment.

Glass instruments to be used in the experiment should be washed and dried after each usage. Glass instruments used in different experiments have different requirements for drying. General quantitative analysis of beakers, conical flasks, and other instruments can be washed, and dried by using the so-called “beaker drying rack” or “volumetric flask drying rack” directly. Many glass instruments used for organic chemistry experiments or organic analysis are specially required to be dried, some require no water traces and some require no water. Instruments should be dried according to different requirements, laboratory pegboard drying rack or laboratory glassware drying rack does help a lot.

Stainless steel lab drying rack

The labware drying rack is usually made of stainless steel, with the characteristics of good-looking, corrosion-resistant, acid-proof, alkali-proof, dust-proof, anti-static, preventing bacteria breeding, etc. There are other materials of lab glass drying rack, such as metal drying rack, acrylic drying rack, etc.

Lab drying rack wall mount

For the reasons of the number of vessels in the laboratory, drying is time-consuming and labor-intensive as well as the volume of instruments and shelves is large, taking up a certain amount of laboratory space, the laboratory drying rack wall mount is designed to solve these problems. It is simple and practical. It is a kind of laboratory draining rack that can reduce space occupation and can effectively reduce energy consumption.

Use of drying rack in laboratory

Laboratories need many types of glass equipment, and there is a kind of product indeed is the laboratory drying rack (lab pegboard). When deciding on the use of drying rack in laboratory, you should know about its importance. All of the following reasons will show the importance of having a pegboard drying rack for your lab. It is an important part of every laboratory.

a. Effective for draining glassware
The most important reason that every lab needs lab draining racks is for draining and drying glassware. Every lab has a large amount of glass - flasks, test tubes, funnels, etc. They are in constant use and need to be cleaned, drained, and dried out frequently. A draining rack laboratory is essential.

b. Safer and more practical than any other drying solution
The towels or compressed air can be used to dry glassware. However, this is not the best option. By using these methods to dry labware, it is easy to introduce foreign objects, fibers, and other impurities into the glass.

You need your flasks, funnels, and the like, to be very clean in order for them to be useful tools in the lab. That's why you should avoid all these drying methods and stick to pegboard drying racks only.

c. More cost-efficient than other solutions
You should clean and dry your glassware regularly. It is better to do it in the cheapest way possible - lab glassware rack, which is still practical and doesn't compromise quality. Though the most saving cost way is to DIY lab drying rack, it is not a good idea for a professional lab.

The lab equipment drying rack achieves all of that. Things like drying ovens, for example, are expensive and they're not spotless. The towels and compressed air we've already mentioned are indeed cheaper, but they are very ineffective because of their potential to introduce foreign materials.

d. Lots of space
With a larger lab glass drying rack, you can dry a lot of glassware at one time because the racks are spacious and have plenty of lab drying rack pegs for a lot of glassware. What's more, they are made from the highest quality materials and their sole purpose is to dry glass, which is why they are the best solution.

It is suggested to have at least two science lab drying racks because you’ll need to have enough space. In addition, it will be useful to be able to use the other one when cleaning the lab drying rack replacement pegs on the first rack.
