The GeneVac Rocket Evaporator offers your lab high speed evaporation of large quantities of solvent in a set and go package. This fully automated evaporator monitors and controls the whole process from temperature, to duration, to preventing bumping and foaming, as well as stopping at the right time. The GeneVac Rocket Evaporator is 5 times faster than conventional evaporators. This high speed evaporator features a low pressure steam heat transfer that heats samples indirectly, as well as an autodraining condenser. The ability to process large quantities unsupervised allows users to focus on their other tasks.

The GeneVac Rocket Evaporator can dry or concentrate up to 6 450ml flasks, the rotor is also removable and can be replaced with one designed for 18 ASE vials, or a stainless steel vessel for batch processing. (sold separately) This concentrator can process sample volumes from 50ml to 5 liters at one time with perfect reproducible results, be it concentrating or drying.  In fact, one Rocket Evaporator can replace several rotary evaporators. This evaporator is also environmentally friendly, with advanced methodology and cold traps that recover high percentages of solvents. When in motion the centrifugal force and the vacuum create a pressure gradient and samples boil from the top down preventing bumping or cross contamination.

The GeneVac Rocket Evaporator Is a perfect choice for labs specializing in food and beverage development, research of natural products, oils fuels and fats, parallel chemistry, and post purification handling. The controls of this evaporator are easy to use and set up. If a user wants to view the progress of their samples in this evaporator a real time strobe viewing window lets them check on the status.
