The new Ai SolventVap 5L series rotary evaporators is now UL/CSA compliant.
This certification is required by many municipalities, and it also provides a higher
standard of equipment safety and lifespan. All SolventVap come with all PTFE
valves for solvent-resistant operations. Also come are vertical glassware and digital temperature/rotation control. Its optimized bath volume allows for rapid heat-up
times. The condenser unit has specially designed glass tubes that utilize surface
area extremely efficiently. That?s why our SolventVap evaporators consistently
deliver reliable and reproducible process results that are usually reserved for more
costly systems. Another important aspect of the SolventVap is the safety features,
which includes dry-run protection, water bath over-temperature shut-off protection,
and fuse protection.
Rotary evaporator features a specially designed motor and worm gear, which
provides constant rotation at speeds from 10 to 180RPM. As the flask containing
the solvent is rotated, it continually transfers a thin layer of liquid over the entire
inner surface. This gives a very large surface area for evaporation, which is caused
by the gentle heating from the water bath. The rotating system is fitted with a special
seal that allows the apparatus to be placed under vacuum, effectively reducing the
boiling point of the solvents and removing the vapor phase, making the process
much more efficient. Each unit is also equipped with an easy-to-use vacuum release
and a continuous feed system, which allows solvent to be constantly drawn into the
rotating flask without needing to stop the operation.
Digital water bath operates from ambient temperature to 99?C (210?F) with PID
temperature control stepping at 0.1?C increments. Heating coils are located directly
inside the pan for the most efficient heating possible. A built-in overheat protector
will shut down power, should the controller fail.
Standard Glassware Set includes 1.32 gallon (5 litres) round-bottomed evaporating
flask, 0.79 gallon (3 litres) round-bottomed receiving flask, and vertical condenser.
Rotary evaporators with vertical glass condenser for are great for distillation of
solvents with higher boiling points.
