Centrifan PE Personal Evaporator -
See How it Works Video.
Novel recirculating evaporation technique provides safe, simple and green solvent evaporation.
- Vacuum-Free – fan creates drying gas flow, no bumping or foaming
- Sample Security – centrifugal forces ensures purity and yield
- Oxygen-Free Drying – inert gas into closed system displaces oxygen
- Inert Construction – compatible with aqueous, organic, and acidic solvents
- Versatile – accommodates 20, 30, 40 mL Scintillation, 1.6 mL Eppendorf and
4 mL (1 dram) vials
- Compact - small 8 in. x 8 in. footprint and only 18 in. high
The Centrifan PE employs a novel, recirculating evaporation technique that reuses a captured volume of gas and generates its own gas flow to rapidly evaporate samples in standard 20 mL scintillation vials. The technique eliminates the need for a vacuum pump or a large supply of blow down gas. Hazardous vapors are captured in a cold trap which prevents the release of toxic fumes. The unit may be purged of air with a nitrogen bleed to perform oxygen-free drying.
The Centrifan PE incorporates a spinning rotor with fan blades that generate a high flow rate of drying gas which is directed onto the surface of the solvent contained in the scintillation vials. The rotor generates centrifugal force to keep 100% of the solute pressed in the scintillation vials, thus preventing compound loss and cross contamination. Solvent vapors from the trapped volume of gas are continuously flowed through a secondary loop with a dry ice cold trap to eliminate solvent vapors. The Centrifan PE operates without vacuum, which eliminates the potential for cross contamination and sample loss caused by solvent bumping.
With a small 8 in. x 8 in. footprint and only 18 in. high, the Centrifan PE
is self-contained, requires little bench space, and doesn't need to be placed
beneath a fume hood. The device accommodates up to six 20, 30, 40 mL Scintillation, 1.6 mL Eppendorf and
4 mL (1 dram) vials . Rotor inserts for Eppendorf and Agilent vials will be available shortly.
