"Although TurboVap is easy to use, the problem is that the maintenance is manual. Changing the water in the water bath is performed manually with a pump. Secondly, the air passages are difficult to clean. Furthermore, the exhaust is not good as water vapors may cause condensation inside of the lid and may drop onto the electronic circuit when the lid is opened."
The new TurboVap® II is built on the solid foundations of reliability and peformance that made it the market leader for solvent evaporation. The unit provides parallel evaporation of up to 6 samples in either 50 mL or 200 mL glassware with or without end point detection. The modern design incorporates many new customer driven features for easier use and expanded functionality. TurboVap II still utilizes the highly efficient patented gas vortex shearing technology, which is synonymous with the TurboVap brand.
This modern design features many new enhancements for effective and easy solvent evaporation, including a well-lit glass tank for much greater visibility of the sample, improved sensors with automatic end-point detection, real-time nozzle adjustment, user replaceable nozzles, easy access drain port, and a color, menu driven touchscreen for simple operation and monitoring. The system can be vented from the bench or placed in the fume hood. Because the footprint is noticeably smaller on this modern unit, less space is required.
Through the enhanced programming features of the new TurboVap® II, flow gradients can be programmed to gradually increase as evaporation occurs, decreasing the amount of time it takes to reach the desired end-point, without splashing.
Like the traditional system, racks are available to accomodate both 50 mL and 200 mL evaporation tubes, with and with out the end point sensors. The new TurboVap® II is designed so that it can be easily and quickly converted between the functionality of the traditional LV and II instruments if evaporation needs change, without purchasing a whole new unit.
