Distillation is one of the most critical functions in the laboratory. Irrespective of whether an experiment is conducted for academic, pharma, chemical, or other industries, distillation is central to most applications. For a successful distillation, the laboratory requires an effective rotary evaporator with modular design and highest precision at best.
IKA rotary evaporators have set new standards for safety, efficiency, and ease of use. With a wide range of products in the offering, the RV series fits in perfectly with your laboratory setup. These rotary evaporators offer excellent and highly advanced distilling solutions to provide an enhanced user experience.
Multiple Solutions For Different Lab Requirments
RV 3 series - our starter models
These entry-level rotary evaporators are perfectly suited for diverse activities in R&D, quality assurance and laboratories in the academic, chemical, pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries. Despite being an entry-level model, this feature-rich product includes a new 4L heating bath with a digital temperature display and ergonomic handles. The single-handed manual lift with adjustable immersion angle facilitates precise positioning of the glassware. RV 3 also incorporates advanced safety features.
RV 8 series - semi-automated models for standard evaporating applications
The RV 8 rotary evaporator comes equipped with an easy to use semi-automatic lift with integrated safety ”lift-out function“ and is ideal for all standard evaporating applications. Digital displays for both rotation speed and heating bath temperature allow for optimal controlling of all distillation processes. The RV 8 provides a user-friendly operation and distills solvents accurately with precise results.
RV 10 series - the digital and most automated models for demanding and frequent distilling
The advanced RV 10 digital and RV 10 auto rotary evaporators are best-in-class devices with standout features such as digital display, state-of-the-art safety features, and digital connectivity. The automated lift-out of the evaporation flask in case of a power outage, individually adjustable safety temperature circuit along with a dry run protection ensure the highest standard of safety. The patented volume-controlled distillation is particularly user-friendly and and accurate. Both models offer RS 232 and RS 232 / USB interfaces respectively for using the laboratory software labworldsoft® and for online firmware updates. In addition to the drive and heating bath, the scope of delivery of the auto pro model also includes the VACSTAR digital vacuum pump.
