System Information

General Description

Combines high vacuum evaporation with centrifugal force over 300 x g to concentrate and reduce sample volumes of aqueous or organic solvents

Capabilities

Centrifugal force, applied by the rotor spinning at up to 17,000RPM, concentrates all the sample at the bottom of the tube, assuring almost 100% sample recovery. The rotor holds the tubes and vials at a fixed angle to force the solute to the bottom and maximize surface area exposed to evaporation. The rotor is isolated in a chamber that assures the integrity of the vacuum and protects the motor from corrosion. Includes 24 tube rotor.
