Laboratory Evaporators

Laboratory Rotary Evaporators

At Scitek we offer a range of state of the art rotary evaporators for all laboratory needs. Our range of Heidolph rotary evaporators of the Hei-VAP series form the ideal basis for intelligent evaporation in your laboratory. They are suitable for standard distillation, for complex distilling processes as well as for automatic distillation.

Aspects such as safety, convenience and cost savings have been considerably taken into account during the development of the evaporators. This is reflected in various unique product advantages.

Among others all evaporators are equipped with a separate ON/OFF switch for the heating function, a detachable operating panel for safe and comfortable control outside closed fume hoods as well as a vapor tube which does not get stuck in the drive due to the patented clamping sleeve which in turn increases the service life of your evaporator.

With the Hei-VAP rotary evaporators you can as well compose your individual modular concept, consisting of rotary evaporator, vacuum pump and chiller.

Key Features of our Heidolph Hei-Vap benchtop evaporators include:

  • Chemical-resistant vacuum seal allows for years of operation and reduces spare parts budget up to 75 %
  • Detachable panel allows for the highest operational safety from outside closed fume hoods
  • 210 °C heating bath with safety handles and pour spout accommodates 5-liter flasks
  • Non-sticking vapor tube with patented clamping sleeve eliminates broken glass and reduces spare parts cost significantly
  • The flange made of chemical-resistant PPS reduces corrosion, maintenance and spare parts cost to a minimum
  • The patented Easy-Clip provides an easy removal of sticking flasks and can ́t get lost due to direct connection to the drive
  • Safety bath will power off if temperature overshoots by 5 °C or runs dry
  • A metal support between the heating bath and the base unit prevents bath instability
  • A separate on/off switch for heating prevents unintentional heat-up – the button is illuminated for visual control
  • Bath power cable coupling complies with protection class IP 67 to prevent corrosion and short circuits
