Stuart RE400 Rotary Evaporators by Cole Parmer are distillation instruments inclusive of a condenser. The Florentine flask containing the sample rotates, resulting in liquid dispersion across the whole surface area, aiding the evaporation process, which can be expedited by adding a heated water bath applied to the sample flask. A vacuum-tight system with a 3 mm Hg pressure increased by connecting an optional vacuum pump, minimising pressure in the system, which reduces the boiling point of solvents and removes the vapour phase for maximum efficiency.
Included are a vacuum release and continuous feed system, providing increased solvent feed into the rotating Florentine flask without pausing operation. Plastic coated variations of each model are available, protecting the operator from glass failure under vacuum and allowing time to transfer any dangerous chemicals to a vessel without spillage. These versions are limited to a maximum temperature of 80°c.
The unit has a rotating speed range adjustable between 10 to 310rpm. Typical laboratory applications are Reclamation of solvents, Vacuum drying of wet solids and Degassing liquids.
- PTFE/glass liquid pathway for chemical inertness
- Long-life graphite impregnated PTFE vacuum seal
- Efficient flask and vapour tube ejection system
The RE400 rotary evaporator has a diagonally orientated glass condenser for standard distillations. Supplied with glass set 00, which includes Diagonal coil condenser, vapour tube for the diagonal condenser, receiving flask 1000ml, Florentine flask 1000ml, feed tube with stopcock, vacuum seal, conical joint clip, spherical joint clip. RE400P same but with Florentine flask and Receiving flask plastic coated, set 00p.
RE401 rotary evaporator as RE400 except supplied with a vertically orientated glass condenser for the distillation of solvents with higher boiling points. Glass set 01. 20% narrower than RE400, saving space. RE401P same but with Florentine flask and Receiving flask plastic coated, set 01p.
RE402 rotary evaporator supplied with glassware set 02, as in above descriptions, with a vertically orientated, cold finger glass condenser for use with ice or dry ice for volatile or low boiling solvents. Providing a cooling solution, dispensing of the need for a cold water supply for temperature reduction. RE402P same but with Florentine flask and Receiving flask plastic coated, set 02p.
