Rotary Evaporator PILOTVAP®

The PILOTVAP® is a patented pendulum system rotary evaporator.

PILOTVAP® Applications :
  • Excellent suitable for recovery of solvents.
  • Problem-free distillation of high boiling solvents.
  • Distillation of large amounts of solvent.
  • Concentration of extracts.
  • Drying of powders.
  • Concentration of fractions coming from HPLC.
  • We would be glad to develop with you customer specified solutions.

Hint: All PILOTVAP®-Systems can be modified to the fully automated rotary evaporator POWERVAP®.

Technical Details of the PILOTVAP® :
  • Rotary Evaporator PILOTVAP® Rotating flaskThe floating rotating flask reduces mechanical stresses, to achieve constant tightness and a powerful distillation result, even under permanent operation (see pendulum system)
  • Hydraulic damping system for the rotating flask with drive system (patented), to increase the performance, when drying powders.
  • Surface treated glass flanges for maximal vacuum stability.
  • Rotary Evaporator PILOTVAP® Sealing systemHigh performance sealing system
    – PTFE / glass or Special High Chemical Resistant sealing system (HCR seals) to sustain corrosive solvents like: TFA, DMF, DMSO, etc.
    – Service life approx. 20,000 hours of operation
    – Final vacuum better than 0.1 hPa (when empty)
    – 3 years warranty
  • Sealing system STACONSEAL, patented (option)
    – Final vacuum better than 0.01 hPa (when empty).
  • By means of the novel sealing system, a very good solvent recovery rate will be achieved.
  • Vapor temperature alarm, to automatically shut off the water bath.
  • Implosion protection hood for the rotating flask, made of transparent polycarbonate.
  • The pendulum system makes the rotating flask float in the water bath, to guarantee highest performance, easy handling and maximal reliability.
  • Manual or automatic vacuum control.
  • Control of the aerating valve (air- or nitrogen inlet).
  • Vapor temperature control.
  • Speed control with slow acceleration mode
  • Control of the water bath temperature.
  • Speed control with slow acceleration mode.
  • Control of the water bath temperature (option).
  • Vapor temperature control (option).
Technical features of the process controller GUARD :
  • Manual vacuum control with ACCEPT function to easily select the SET value.
  • Automated vacuum control.
  • Emergency SHUT OFF and aeration at overpressure (alarm).
  • Temperature control of heating bath.
  • Vapor temperature control.
  • Pulse aerating.
  • Speed control with slow accelerating mode.
  • Automated speed control (patented/option).
  • Torr/hPa (mbar) selector.
