The GEW Series washer/dryers are suitable for many common applications within BioPharma production, and are equipped with appropriate features and options for demanding processes within production and QA/QC laboratory environments.

Robust and sanitary construction

Sloped design and smooth crevice-free construction of chamber, pip¬ing and racks eliminates water retention and sites for biofilm or corrosion. 316L stainless steel is used throughout, with EPDM, PTFE or other FDA (21 CFR part 177) and USP class VI approved gaskets. Orbital welding is used wherever possible and extensive documentation is provided.

Improved air barrier

Less building ventilation capacity is needed to maintain the differential pressure between departments (loading and unloading side).

Door configurations

Each model is available in single door or double door configuration. Doors are equipped with interlocks to prevent opening during washer operation and simultaneous opening of the dual door units.

Single pass final rinse

To meet specific process requirements, Getinge offers a Single Pass Final Rinse (SPFR) system which can be programmed as a part of the total validated cycle. During SPFR, components are not exposed to recirculated water. The SPFR cycle can be user-programmed and repeated in accordance with process requirements. Rinse water conductivity is monitored by the control system. If the conductivity goes out of range, a fault code is activated.


The Getinge GEW Series consists of a range of chamber sizes that offer optimal handling of common loads. Five standard models, with a wide variety of options provides a custom configured washer/dryer to meet specific process needs.

The ideal solution for small premises

The GEW 888 is a compact washer, the ideal solution for small premises dealing with space constraints. Its vertical sliding down door enhances ergonomics and compactness. From 50 liter Nalgene bottles to vials and small glassware items, this washer has been designed to provide you with flexibility and increased throughput thanks to its two independent wash levels.

A washer for multipurpose applications

The GEW 9109 is an ideal washer for multipurpose applications. Its 810 liter chamber allows for washing on two levels with ultra-low water consumption. In addition to low cycle costs and high productivity, the automatic sliding doors allow for good ergonomics.

The medium sized GEW 101210 are designed primarily for the manufacturing area. The base model of each includes many standard features necessary for GMP compliance. The chambers are equipped with one or two vertical hinged glass doors for single ended use or pass-through operation. The hinged door optimizes space and minimizes footprint.

The GEW 131313 are just as the GEW 101210 designed for the manufacturing area and comply with GMP requirements. The washer can be configured with single or double door for operations requiring pass-through functionality, where the vertically hinged doors minimizes the footprint needed.

This unit is intended for BioPharmaceutical manufacturing operations, including cleaning of bulk chemical containers, vessels and machine parts. It is designed for pit mounting in a 320 mm (12.6") deep pit, allowing direct floor loading of large, heavy or bulky items. Where pit mounting is not possible, the machine may be floor mounted with a loading height of just 320 mm (12.6").
