Recycling of solvents
Thanks to its precise and safe heating functions the new IKA rotary evaporator RV 10 can easily be employed for the recapturing of clean acetone from used laboratory acetone. The adjustable safety circuit, the safety hood and the carrying handles are essential safety features supporting you when it comes to the recycling of solvents.
Performance of extractions
With the new RV 10 rotary evaporator and the multiple glassware options available, e.g. the vertical-condenser for reflux distillation - extraction is a breeze - whether you extract essential plant oil or comparable substances. No matter what your sample size is the reflux condenser guarantees the best results.
Concentrating of active agents
Elevating the concentration of medical agents like eucalyptus oil can be so safe and easy when using the RV 10 rotary evaporator. Especially when working with expensive samples you want to make sure to avoid the all too common "bumps"? With the new RV 10's automatic bath shut-off and evaporating flask lift-out mechanism ensures that expensive sample bumps are a thing of the past.
Drying of powders
The IKA RV 10 is one of a kind, the only rotary evaporator on the market that features a clockwise / counter-clockwise interval rotation scheme. Thus in combination with the powder flask you optimize the drying of all types of colored pigments and powders while saving time and money.
Separating of substance mixtures
Due to new and innovative built-in features the IKA RV 10 is a workhorse for general laboratory separation of all non azeotropic mixtures such as water-acetone. Some unique features are the high-precision heating bath temperature setting and the expandable solvent library.
Distillation of solvents with a low boiling point
With our dry ice condenser option distillations of solvents with low boiling points are possible and maximum condensation is achieved due to very low temperatures. This is applied for example in chloroform distillation.
Distillation of temperature sensitive substances under vacuum
Due to the RV 10's accurate and constant heating bath temperature control sensor distillation of temperature sensitive substances under vacuum is made easy. One example is the distillation of absinth under vacuum whereby the contained flavor is conserved.
Distillation of oxygen sensitive substances under inert gas
Due to the unique glassware design of the new RV 10, inert gas can easily be introduced into the glass condenser to inhibit the formation of unwanted compounds. A great feature when distilling ether without forming peroxide.
Chemical synthesis with reflux
The concentration and preparation of saprogenine through hydrolysis is possible due to our vertical intensive reflux condenser option. Thus maximizing the recovery.
With cutting edge functionality and safety features the RV 10 makes retention of residual methanol during bio diesel purification processes possible. Distillation specific parameters are stored and turning your extraction into child's play.
