A rotary evaporator or rotavap or rotovap uses precise engineering to effectively remove solvents from a sample using evaporationMost rotovaps make use of a vacuum and pressure control monitor to precisely control pressure within your system increasing evaporation efficiencyIn many commercial labs these machines need to be running.
Also known as rotovaps in most chemistry labs rotary evaporators are a common sightPerhaps surprisingly since it was first invented in the 1950s this familiar piece of equipment has not changed much.
Also while the Friedrichs forces vapors up a spiral path the path itself is wide and in my condenser at least there was a bit of leeway for liquid to drop down the sides helping to prevent blockagesI didnt try a Graham condenser but I imagine a much slower rate of addition would be supported by this condenser.
Apr 01 2010nbsp018332The flask with the solution is placed on the rotary evaporatorThe use of a bump trap prevents the solution from accidentally splashing into the condenser and being contaminatedIt is highly advisable to start with a clean bump bulb in case something bumps over after all This would allow the experimenter to recover the solution or solid.

Apr 11 2016nbsp018332If your vapor temperature is high enough you can simply use waterYou can use a recirculating chiller to cool the water or you can simply connect the condenser to a tapDont forget the Rule of 20 you want the coolant to be at least 20176C cooler than your vapor temperatureIf you need your coolant to be near or below 0176C you cannot use.
Aug 15 2021nbsp018332Rotary EvaporationRotary evaporation is the process of reducing the volume of a solvent by distributing it as a thin film across the interior of a vessel at elevated temperature and reduced pressure.

Edit This question was motivated by an organic preparation which involved the bromination of an alkene in boiling waterBromine has a boiling point of 588 degC and on top of that the reaction was exothermicIt was difficult to avoid the loss of Br2 gas with your typical Allihn condenser but the increased cooling capacity provided by a Friedrichs returned Br2 back to the flask as it was produced.

Even though major manufacturers develop new models of rotary evaporators each year until now the basic principles of operation have remained the same.
If you are refluxing a mixture as you might in organic synthesis to increase the speed of the reaction by doing it at a higher temperature ithe boiling point of the solvent then any of the condensers that worked well enough to avoid the loss of solvent and avoid flooding would work equally wellWhen youre refluxing you want the reflux ring the place where the vapor is visibly condensing into a liquid to be no more than 13 of the way up the reflux column.
If you have a dry ice condenser youre obviously using dry ice but coiled condensers which cool the vapor inside the condenser using a liquid passed through an internal cooling coil are much more popular.
In a Grahamtype condenser the right condenser in the picture below the water flows around a tube whether straight or coiled that contains the vaporcondensed liquidpicture source The Grahamtype condensers clog or flood more easily since they have a more restricted path for the liquid to return to the pot.
May 08 2019nbsp018332Product Description The 50L dual condenser rotary evaporators adopt stepless speed regulation to make the glass rotating flask rotate at a constant speedMaterials can form a large area of uniform thin film on the wall of the flask.
Now we’ll revisit some key components of the rotovap providing more details on our own setup and tips to help you build your own.
On the rotovap motor and the speed control knob below itYou need not set the rotation speed of the flask at maximum however you must rotate the flask to prevent bumping at reduced pressureLower the entire condensermotorflask assembly into the heated water bath using the handle as shown at the right.
Researchers at the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research in New York described the first rotary evaporation system in scientific literature in 19571 These researchers placed a dilute solution over a heat source in a roundbottomed flask.
Rotary Vacuum Seal These cost 50 bucks a pop for a tiny ring of rubber so take good care of them Remove the seal from the rotovap when you’re not running itThe manufacturer says to never grease them because grit can get into the grease and ruin the vapor ductWe do anyway because is the only way we can get the seal to workMake sure you install them the right way check your manual for details.
Special flange connection makes it easy to disassemble having a high fastening strength.
The 50L dual condenser rotary evaporators adopt stepless speed regulation to make the glass rotating flask rotate at a constant speedMaterials can form a large area of uniform thin film on the wall of the flaskThen the rotating flask is heated evenly by the intelligent constant temperature water bath and the material is evaporated rapidly under the vacuum conditionThe solvent steam is recycled in the receiving flask after being cooled by the high efficiency glass condenser.
The rest are meant to cool a product stream that only goes in one direction or for destillationMisused for reflux cooling they all fail abruptly when too much condensate is produced with the result of flooding.
The Rotavapor174 R100 is an entrylevel rotary evaporator that meets the essential needs in economical evaporation and is developed according to BUCHI’s highquality standardsEvaporating flask size 50 4000 mL.
This article outlines how Ecodyst is revolutionizing the world of rotary evaporators providing simpler operation better performance and drastic reductions in lifetime costs while eliminating costly consumables.
