Labconco™ RapidVap™ N2 Evaporation System

Evaporates using vortex motion, heat and nitrogen blowdown

Supplier:  Labconco™ 7910000

Catalog No. 16-317-40

Add to cart

Requires :

  • Glassware
  • Nitrogen with maximum flowrate of 0.6 cfm and a gas pressure regulator
  • Pressure of 5–10psi is typical
  • 15A minimum circuit breaker for 115V models; 8A circuit breaker for 230V models



Efficient alternative to Kuderna-Danish and rotary evaporators.

  • Nitrogen manifold lets operator introduce nitrogen to selected samples. Processes up to eight samples at once; maximum individual volume capacity, 450mL
  • Choice of two end-of-run signals:

    • Timed signal: electric timer pauses system, alerts user when set time has elapsed
    • Temperature signal: system monitors temperature difference between sample block and heater caused by evaporative cooling; when evaporation is nearly complete, the two temperatures equalize, causing alarm to sound and PREHEAT/END ALARM light to flash
    • Available with RS-232 Link on rear of unit for two-way communication
    • Ideal for toxicology testing and environmental analysis
    • Speeds evaporation by introducing nitrogen to the sample surface, an efficient alternative to Kuderna-Danish evaporators

    Improved control panel

    • Easy-to-read LCD display prompts operator to program desired parameters, and displays vortex speed by percentage, actual and set temperatures in °C, and total time remaining in minutes. Enter up to nine different protocols into memory for easy repetition of exact test parameters
    Advanced heating system
    • Contamination- and maintenance-free 1000-watt dry block heating system speeds evaporation rate by supplying a controlled amount of heat from ambient up to 100°C
    • Heater and sample block move in tandem for more efficient heat transfer
    • Alarm signals completion of run, allowing samples to be left unattended while evaporating to desired endpoint
    Efficient operation
    • Brushless DC motor ensures safe, maintenance-free operation and provides smooth, variable-speed power up to 500rpm
    • Produces no potentially dangerous sparks
    Increased durability
    • Systems may be used with broad range of strong chemicals
    • Powder-coated, aluminum cabinet base with smooth, solvent-resistant acrylic/PVC thermoplastic upper housing
    • Aluminum chamber with PTFE coating conducts heat efficiently and resists corrosion
    • All mechanical components are isolated from chemical fumes and vapors for longer life
    • Chemical-resistant glass lid provides visibility of samples and detaches for cleaning
    • Two clamps hold lid securely in place
    • Phenol-free gasket provides sealing without potential for phenol contamination
    • RapidVap models with optional RS-232 link allow all front panel functions to be performed and monitored from a personal computer (not included)

    † Excludes vacuum pump.
