BUCHI Labortechnik AG, the world leader in rotary evaporation, has introduced a ground-breaking, commercial laboratory system with the launch of the Rotavapor® R-300. The innovative, modular platform with a plug-and-play concept enables seamless combinations of components to provide tailor-made solutions, from a basic rotary evaporator to a fully-automated system.
“Globally, our customers were expressing their desire to configure a rotary evaporator according to their unique requirements,” says Dr. Rudolf Hartmann, Product Group Manager for Evaporation at Buchi. “The Rotavapor® R-300 has been designed as a modular system to accommodate that need, offering maximum flexibility with options for central interface, heating bath, glass assembly, pump and chiller.
A new level of unattended operation will be achieved with integration of an optional central interface. In conjunction with a Buchi vacuum pump and recirculation chiller, the perfect synchronisation of process parameters, such as rotation speed, pressure and temperature (i.e., heating, cooling and vapour) opens up new possibilities:
- Automation of standard operation procedures (SOPs) using configurable methods
- Unattended distillation of foaming samples
- Remote process monitoring with push-notifications to mobile devices
The Buchi Rotavapor® Configurator app is available to simplify the process of selecting the optimal configuration for any customer’s needs.
