JULABO USA PRESTO Family of Products

Check out our PRESTO product line. It’s our most advanced temperature control system. Its closed bath system design and cold oil overlay technology allow you to do things you can’t do with traditional open bath systems.

Overview of PT100 Sensor, Bandlimits, Time Temp Data, and Black Box

In this video, Sr. Product Manager Mark Diener, talks about the importance of external temperature control using Pt100 sensor and monitoring the temperature in your glass reactor.


Welcome to JULABO. Today, I’d like to talk about the PRESTO A80 and A80t. They look identical and they both have the same temperature range from -80°C to 250°C. They both utilize the cold oil overlay, which enables a very broad temperature range with one fluid. If you’re doing cold temperature applications for cannabis workflow, the A80 will work well for you. It only requires a 20-amp, single-phase 208-to-200-volt outlet. So at -40°C, both models have 1.1kW of cooling power at -40°C and 650 watts of cooling power at -60°C. For cold temperature applications in the cannabis or hemp workflow, these are great hydrocarbon extraction cooling, crystallization, winterization, and anything that might need 1.1kW at -40°C. Also for ethanol extraction, it can be used for smaller-scale centrifuges, for example. On the high end, the A80t offers 2.8kW of heating power. So, you could use the PRESTO A80t for application in vessels up to 20-50 liters, if you will, for decarb. So, in that case, the PRESTO A80t could be used on a reaction vessel for decarb and then also for winterization before that. And, later on, then, you could do crystallization for example if you’re trying to make diamonds or other types of solid, high-purity isolate products. So, if you have any more questions, please click the link to learn more about the PRESTO A80 and A80t products. Thank you.
