The double-up gel dryer system combines two Model 583 gel dryers, a HydroTech™ vacuum pump, and the double-up gel dryer rack. The double-up gel dryer rack accommodates two gel dryers up to 60 x 50 cm. The bottom shelf is on interlocking glides that allow full extension and easy access to the gel dryer's surface. When a dryer is placed on the stationary top shelf, it stabilizes the unit and helps prevent tilting of the rack when the bottom shelf is fully extended. The rack is made of sturdy sheet metal, plumbed for vacuum, and arrives assembled. The rack can be ordered separately or as a system including two Model 583 gel dryers and a HydroTech™ vacuum pump.
