12L EcoChyll X3 Hi-Speed Evaporator
Turnkey System Designed for:
|Medium Scale Solvent Recovery and Decarboxylation
Solvent Recovery Throughput:
|Up to 8L of ethanol per hour
Engineered for high-speed solvent evaporation and recovery in small- to medium-sized laboratories, the EcoChyll® X3 is a robust cooling system for chemical, botanical, and other extractions. Using the pioneering EcoChyll® direct cooling technology, the X3 bridges the gap between small-footprint, benchtop rotary evaporators and our larger, higher-capacity EcoChyll evaporators. With a true 12 L capacity and compact form factor, it holds more solvent than a “20 L” rotary evaporator while having a faster evaporation rate and much shorter total run time.
The EcoChyll® X3 is routinely used downstream of botanical extractions via BHO, CO2, or ethanol. With twin metallic condenser coils, the EcoChyll® X3 carries out continuous direct-cooling of incoming vapors in an efficient and environmentally-friendly manner. No glycol or other coolant is necessary, start-up times are far shorter, and total energy usage is less than half. EcoChyll® evaporators also free up operator time due to low-intervention requirements. Because the evaporation flask is stirred rather than rotating, residual product can simply be drained from a valve. The EcoChyll X3 can also be set up for more complete process automation, saving time and money without compromising the quality of your results.
Setting New Standards in Evaporation Efficiency
Rotary evaporators haven’t evolved much over the past 50 years. The basic operation has been the same. We wanted to make something better, so we rethought the rotary evaporator from the ground up. We asked ourselves: How could we more efficiently heat the evaporation flask? (A: Sit the flask directly in a heating mantle.) How could we minimize handling of large glassware? (A: Make the flask stationary so it can have a drain.) How could we decrease run time? (A: We need to reduce the coolant pull-down time while increasing the evaporation rate.) How could we make the cooling process faster and more efficient? (A: Pump refrigerant directly from the compressor through the condenser.)
When you answer all those questions, you get the EcoChyll; a system which can render the legacy rotary evaporators obsolete. You get shorter runs, faster start-up, less manual activity, and far greater energy efficiency than a rotary evaporator. For more information, contact us today.
