New High Volume Evaporation Technique Assists Environmental Analysis
01 Dec 2008Genevac has announced a new white paper and online video that present the revolutionary new technology behind the Rocket™ Evaporator that enables it to dry or concentrate as many as six flasks (each containing up to 450ml solvent) five times faster than conventional evaporators.
Downloadable from the article webpage link on the right, the white paper explains in detail the new patented low temperature, low pressure steam heating technology developed by Genevac to achieve the dual goals of very fast evaporation with very precise temperature control to protect valuable samples. The new technique has already generated significant interest in applications in environmental analysis where large volumes of solvent typically have to be removed.
To demonstrate the ease-of-use and operational functionality of the new Rocket Evaporator - Genevac has also produced a new online streaming video, also available on the article page!
For laboratories tired of having to constantly attend to their rotary evaporators or nitrogen blow-down systems, the new Rocket Evaporator sets a new benchmark for productivity and ease-of-use. Offering true unattended operation capability the Rocket Evaporator requires no training, even a beginner can competently use the system in less than 5 minutes. A 2-stage cold trap built into the Rocket Evaporator provides very high levels of solvent recovery, even with volatile organic solvents. Requiring no peripherals for operation the compact Rocket Evaporator fits neatly onto a laboratory bench or into a fume hood. All key components on the robust and reliable system are user serviceable ensuring a low the cost of ownership.
Genevac, an SP Industries company, was founded in 1990. Today the company employs around 85 people, with manufacturing, R&D and marketing headquartered in Ipswich, UK. Genevac today offers a comprehensive portfolio of evaporators to suit almost any solvent removal application, purchasing budget or productivity requirement.
