Small Volume Evaporator aids synthetic and medicinal chemists.
Press Release Summary:
November 21, 2012 - Drying solvents directly in vial, Centrifan™ PE Evaporator/Concentrator maximizes evaporation efficiency. Self-generated blowdown technology eliminates problems with common evaporation systems such as vacuum centrifuges, rotary evaporators, nitrogen blow-down, and freeze dryers. Since samples are dried in 20 mL scintillation or other vials, there is no need for vacuum pump or large supply of blow-down gas. This protects samples from loss and enables capture of toxic vapors in closed system.

New Small Volume Evaporator
Press release date: November 7, 2012
The NEW Centrifan™ PE Evaporator/Concentrator provides a low cost, safe, small volume evaporator for synthetic and medicinal chemists, as well as pharmaceutical, biotech, and university researchers.
The Centrifan™ PE dries solvents directly in the vial, increasing evaporation efficiency in your laboratory. Proprietary self-generated blowdown technology (SBT) eliminates the potential problems with common evaporation systems such as vacuum centrifuges, rotary evaporators, nitrogen blow-down, and freeze dryers.
Synthetic and medicinal chemists will save time because the Centrifan™ PE dries samples without the monitoring required by a rotorvap. The system also works well for processing fractions collected from flash liquid chromatography.
Pharmaceutical and university labs working with radioactive and other highly toxic compounds will appreciate the advantage of the green chemistry design.
In the Centrifan™ PE samples are dried in 20ml scintillation or other common vials and there is no need for a vacuum pump or a large supply of blow-down gas. This protects samples from loss and captures toxic vapors and materials in a closed system.
