Ensuring safety and efficiency begins with purchasing. Understanding factors such as space requirements, sample and solvent types, safety considerations, and throughput is vital for selecting the right evaporator for your lab. This will mean finding the balance between opposing technical elements like solvent volatility and solute sensitivity and operational elements like throughput and space constraints.  Comparing the main technologies and their features is equally critical to finding the best solution for an application. Exploring alternative evaporator designs and innovative features opens up new possibilities for enhancing lab efficiency and productivity. From dual-function capabilities to advanced automation, staying informed about the latest advancements in evaporation technology empowers lab managers to make strategic investments that drive long-term success.

  • Considerations for evaporator selection, including operational parameters and evaporator types
  • Safety and maintenance tips to mitigate common hazards and reduce downtime

Purchasing Guide: Evaporators

by Lab Manager
Rotary evaporators are often used to remove low boiling organic solvents, and the addition of vacuum can lower the boiling point. Nitrogen evaporators apply a steady stream of nitrogen to remove moisture. Centrifugal evaporators, ideal for high-volume sample processing, use vacuum centrifugation to evaporate samples
