RapidVap® N2 Evaporation systems uses vortex motion, nitrogen blow down and heat to quickly reduce samples to dryness or an end point volume. A stream of nitrogen or dry gas is directed downward onto the surface of the sample to reduce the partial pressure directly over the liquid to speed evaporation and help remove the solvent as it evaporates. Up to eight 450mL samples may be processed at once.
The unique Cool-Zone™ block and tube design on all systems significantly reduces evaporation after the end point is reached allowing the researcher adequate time to remove the samples before they reach dryness. Additional exclusive features include microprocessor-controlled 1000-watt dry block heating system; microprocessor-controlled vortex motion; maintenance-free microprocessor-controlled motor; phenol-free gasket; audible alarm signals; easy-to-set programming. Other features include microprocessor-controlled nitrogen blow down manifold; PTFE-coated aluminum sample block; PTFE-coated aluminum chamber; glass lid; dual lid clamps; improved chemical capability; easy-to-read LCD display; epoxy-coated cast aluminum cabinet base; solvent-resistant, smooth acrylic/PVC thermoplastic upper housing.
The systems with the RS-232 Link permit front panel functions from a user-supplied personal computer. Functions which may be remotely controlled include preheat, vortex speed, temperature, time and vacuum. Two-way link allows the RapidVap® to control incoming commands as well as provide outgoing status. Communications are in standard ASCII format.
