VirTis SP K 6KBTEL Freeze Dryer in Excellent Condition with 8-Port Manifold -- Turnkey System

This is a turnkey freeze dryer that has been thoroughly inspected, serviced, and tested by our lyophilizer specialist.

Given our careful inspection and service (detailed below), you'll be hard-pressed to find a used freeze dryer that rivals this one in terms of performance, accessories, and price. Our freeze dryer testing and service processes are among the most thorough on the used market.

Additionally, a 90-day warranty and a promise of post-warranty support accompany this freeze dryer. You can buy with confidence knowing that in the slim chance something goes awry, we'll have your back.

Refrigeration Recharged, New Lid Added, and More

The key component of our service was recharging the refrigeration system.

To ensure the refrigeration is operating at manufacturer specification, our technician performs a full evacuation of the refrigeration system and refills the system with new refrigerant. The recharge process involves the following:

- Vent system of refrigerant

- Apply 250 micron vacuum to test for leaks, remove debris, and boil off moisture in lines

- Nitrogen purge three times to clear lines for preventative maintenance

- Refill system with new refrigerant

- Confirm system is operating to manufacturer specification

We added a drum manifold and fabricated a new plexiglass lid for it. Also included are a strong vacuum pump, oil mist filter, fluid evacuator, a power cable, and one gallon of new vacuum oil.

In summary: this freeze dryer meets manufacturer specification across the board and will be leaving our shop in better condition than which it came.

In Excellent Condition -- Virtually No Signs of Wear

This freeze dryer has very little wear inside and out. The control panel is in especially good condition, featuring a bright, clear screen and responsive buttons.

Compact Size Saves Space Without Compromising Performance

According to the manual, the VirTis 2K, 4K, and 6K lyophilizers are designed for facilities with space constraints. Despite its small frame, the 6K offers a 9L condenser capacity that can drop below -85°C and hold an 8mT vacuum (as seen in our photos).
