Top 4 Things You May Not Know About Evaporators

1. Dr. Neal McNiven developed the first multiple sample, high-speed nitrogen evaporator, the forerunner of many similar devices.

2. Some dry block evaporators can be filled with aluminum or glass beads.

3. Today’s evaporators often handle multiple samples at once, but each must be processed without being impacted by the others. Scientists must make sure that there’s no cross-contamination, which requires careful control of the airflow.

4. A cool use for evaporators outside the lab is on large ships which often contain evaporating plants to make fresh water so they don’t have to rely as much on supplies from shore.

Recently Released Evaporators


”Odor Reduction” Function for EZ-2 Evaporator

  • Enables evaporator to be sited on the open bench rather than taking up valuable fume hood space
  • Automatically adds a repeated vent and vacuum cycle to the end of a method, which purges the evaporation chamber of residual solvent vapors
  • Three settings are available to optimize vapor removal without releasing trapped solvent from the cold trap
