Processes up to 110 samples at once. Interchangeable aluminum sample blocks coated with PTFE. Hold tubes from 12mm O.D. to 600mL

Advanced vacuum function

  • Microprocessor controls vacuum at preset level; Automatic vacuum release if power fails
  • LCD shows vacuum level from 0 to 999mbar
  • Rear-mounted vacuum connections: vacuum port, tubing clamps, lid heater receptacle, 30 in.L (76cm) 0.5 in. I.D. tubing for connection to accessory vacuum pump
Safety features
  • Lexan™ shield on clear glass lid protects against glass implosion
  • Dual lid clamps hold lid securely in place for vacuum-tight seal
  • Phenol-free gasket provides complete sealing under vacuum
  • PTFE-coated aluminum chamber
  • Audible/visual alarm for end point detected by temperature sensors at heater and block
Optional Lid Heater
  • 40w heater plugs into electrical receptacle on rear
  • Eliminates fogging, increases visibility when evaporating water or other high-boiling-point solvents

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 1000rpm
  • 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)
