BIO-RAD HydroTech Vacuum Pump

The HydroTech vacuum pump* is perfect for electrophoresis gel drying and for many other
applications requiring a continuous vacuum of greater than 29 inches of mercury (23.4
Torr).** The pump works well with the Model 583 gel dryer. (Please see our stock ref H184)

The HydroTech vacuum pump uses ordinary tap water, not vacuum pump oil, eliminating the
need to change and dispose off potentially hazardous waste. All internal wetted surfaces
of the pump are made of corrosion-resistant materials. There is no need for a vapor trap
because the HydroTech pump traps all gel drying liquids and vapors directly in the 4 L
water reservoir. When the reservoir is full, connect the drain line, switch the pump on,
and it will empty itself in less than a minute. Then refill with fresh water and the pump
is ready to go.

The completely self-contained HydroTech pump produces vacuum by pumping pressurized water
through dual venturi injectors. Vacuum is temperature dependent, and the HydroTech pump
is the only vacuum pump of its kind that maintains a strong, constant vacuum because it
also circulates the water through a cooling unit to dissipate heat. When the power is
shut off, a check valve prevents the circulating water from siphoning back into the gel

With quick-disconnect fittings on the vacuum and drain lines, the HydroTech pump can be
separated from a gel dryer with a push of a button. A one-way drain valve prevents drips
and leaks from the drain line. Convenient swivel casters provide complete mobility of the
pump around the laboratory.

Gel Drying with cool, fresh water?

Introducing the new HydroTech Gel Drying System, a system that uses advanced, water-based
vacuum technology to dry electrophoresis gels. It keeps the entire drying process
refreshingly clean, pure and sensible.

The new HydroTech Vacuum Pump is packed with benefits:

NO oil changes, oil disposal or oil odor!

The HydroTech is water-based. Say goodbye to oil pump maintenance, oil disposal costs and
unpleasant oil odors.

NO liquid trap or vapor trap maintenance!

All gel drying liquids and vapors are trapped in the water reservoir. Say goodbye to

offensive chemical odors and the agony of trap maintenance.

NO expensive parts that continually need replacing!

The HydroTech doesn’t have expensive parts that wear out with normal use. Say goodbye to
frequent and costly diaphragm replacements during the life of the pump.

Corrosion Resistant!

The HydroTech won’t corrode in the presence of common gel drying reagents. This may be
the last gel drying pump you will ever need.

NO maintenance! {Just Add Water}.
Emptying and refilling the water reservoir is the only maintenance you’ll ever perform
