Rotary Evaporators

Intelligent Evaporation


Rotary Evaporators

The rotary evaporators of the Hei-VAP series are forming the ideal base for intelligent evaporation in your lab.

Advisor - Find the right device

„Intelligent Distillation“ proofs the difference in separation of samples, in evaporation of solvents and that quality is no coincidence.

The rotary evaporators of our Hei-VAP series create new milestones within vacuum evaporation - a well-designed concept, unmatched tightness and uncompromising high quality.

The new seal system, speed-regulated vacuum pumps as well as the new generation of high performance condensers ensure the highest solvent recovery, increase the lifetime of rotary evaporator and vacuum pump and reduces residue in the ambient atmosphere. At the same time, you save up to 90 % of energy costs.

In short: Whatever you expect a rotary evaporator to be; the Hei-VAP series will fulfill these needs.

A variety of additionally options makes the Heidolph rotary evaporator the best solution for your individual requirements. You reach up to 40 % higher evaporation rates with our new XL condensers and achieve purest results through our innovative seal system, which enables a stable evaporation process and therefore overcomes any pharmaceutical or chemical challenge.

Convince yourself from the quality, performance and reliability of our rotary evaporators, which we exclusively develop and manufacture in Germany only.

Rotary Evaporators - Product Advantages

Two independent safety circuits avoid an overheat situation of your heating bath: If bath temperature overshoots by 5 °C and if your water bath runs dry, heating will be switched off automatically

To protect you from splashes and scalding, the Hei-VAP heating bath features an integrated pour spout to remove bath fluid safely

Heating bath is constructed with a double wall for your protection against burns and scalding

The guard hood covers the bath even if the heating bath is adjusted horizontally to its most extreme limit

A metal guide between the heating bath and the base unit prevents bath instability

To protect your heating bath against short-circuits and systematic corrosion, the cable coupling complies with the protection class IP 67

For your protection, the operating panel is located underneath a protective canopy so as to keep your hands out of the dangerous zone of rotating flasks, steam and splashing bath fluids

All heating baths feature non-slip handles with safety grip to protect you from scalding bath liquids and allow for easy installation/removal of the bath

A separate on/off switch for heating prevents unintentional heat-up. The button is illuminated for visual control

Glassware assemblies are optionally available with transparent plastic safety coating ensuring ultimate protection while allowing visual control at all times

IQ-OQ documentation is available for Hei-VAP models on request

The patented evaporating flask clamp Easy-Clip cannot be lost due to a connection to the vapor tube coupling ring

The integrated screwed ring allows you to remove sticking evaporating flasks from the vapor tube just in seconds in a safe manner

The universal heating bath can be adjusted horizontally up to 200 mm and offers efficient space to accommodate even 5-liter flasks

For your convenience, the height of 160 mm and the angle of the evaporating flask can be adjusted easily from 20° to 80°

The detachable operating panel enables convenient handling from outside closed fume hoods

The innovative ventilation and replenishment valves no longer have ground joints, which enables maximum tightness, grease-free operation and prevents glass breakage

All components in direct or indirect contact with the medium are equipped with FDA-compliant materials for an extended application range

Achieve up to 40 % higher evaporation rates with the xl condenser and a condensing surface of 2,200 cm²

The high resistant and durable PTFE vacuum seal achieves maximum tightness and reduces spare part budgets

The patented clamping sleeve ensures a long life performance of the vapor tube

Increase your range of applications by using 5-liter flasks in the universal bath at no additional cost

Maintenance-free and non-sparking motors reduce repairs and down times significantly to ensure years of continuous operation

The flange on the condenser side of the drive is made of PPS (Polyphenylene sulfide), a robust industrial-designed resin with superior chemical resistance which provides more chemical resistance than stainless steel or welded aluminum. This reduces corrosion to a minimum which results in additional savings on maintenance and replacement component
