For best evaporation performance:
The difference in heating bath and vapor temperature should be 20 °C. A temperature difference of 20 °C between vapor and coolant assures best condensate recovery results.

Example:
heating bath temperature is 60 °C, boiling point is 40 °C (pressure see table), max. coolant temperature is 20 °C
