The New Gold Standard for Rotary Evaporators

Rotary evaporators (or rotovaps) are a staple of numerous laboratories around the world and have been for many years. However, in this time there have been very few major changes with regards to how rotary evaporators operate. Ecodyst has pioneered a new gold standard for rotary evaporators, modernizing them, making them more accessible, and work […]

Key Principles of Rotary Evaporation

Rotary evaporation is one of the most widely used techniques of evaporation offering excellent distillation and extraction performance. Rotary evaporation is most often used to remove a volatile substance from a liquid mixture and is carried out using a rotary evaporator. This article will outline how rotary evaporation works, some key principles, and its applications. […]

50 l Rotary Evaporator for Large Scale Solvent Recovery

Large-scale solvent recovery can prove a difficult, inefficient challenge that takes a lot of time and energy. 50 l rotary evaporators from Ecodyst are a brilliant means of mitigating these issues. This blog post will examine why 50 l rotary evaporators are so beneficial and outline some of their key attributes. What is a 50 […]

A Rough Guide to Continuous Cooling

Continuous cooling is a key benefit of the Ecodyst rotary evaporator range. Rotary evaporators work to gently and efficiently remove solvents from a range of samples. Samples are heated and their boiling points are minimized concurrently using a vacuum that is induced by the rotary evaporator. The boiling point decreases as the pressure reduces and […]

The Sustainable Rotary Evaporator from Ecodyst

Rotary evaporators (sometimes called rotovaps) are a feature of many chemistry laboratories. Whilst new models of rotary evaporators are developed year by year, there has not been a significant change in the way they operate since their invention in the 1950s. However, recently, Ecodyst has pioneered revolutionary rotary evaporator technology which minimizes costs and environmental […]

What is Distillation? Principles and Applications

Distillation is a technique for the separation of mixtures based on differences in the conditions necessary to alter the phase of components in the mixture. This is a widely used technique in which mixtures of liquids are heated to mean components which have different boiling points into the gas phase. This gas is then condensed […]

Ethanol Removal in Cannabis Applications

Extracting cannabinoids and other compounds from raw cannabis can be done using a range of techniques. The most popular techniques are extraction using CO2, ethanol or a hydrocarbon such as butane. The selection of one of these techniques is based on a range of factors such as the final application of the product (such as […]

The Modern Rotary Evaporators: Ecochyll X1 and Hydrogen

Rotary evaporators, also known as rotovaps, are a common sight in most chemistry labs. Perhaps surprisingly, this familiar piece of equipment hasn’t changed much since it was first invented in the 1950s. Even though new models of rotary evaporators are developed each year by major manufacturers, the basic principles of operation have remained the same. […]

Winterization of Oils to Remove Fats and Waxes

Cannabis and hemp are botanically complex, containing a rich assortment of carbohydrates, insoluble fibres, proteins, chemicals, and vitamins. Among the most valuable constituents of the Cannabis sativa and indica plant species are—of course—cannabinoids like cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Extracting these compounds from the raw plant material and purifying it into a high-purity end-product requires […]

High Quality Budget Rotary Evaporator from Ecodyst

Rotary evaporator users will know that whilst evaporation via rotary evaporator is an efficient, gentle process that can remove solvents from a wide range of sample types, the equipment can be extremely costly. Many users desire a budget rotary evaporator, however, it is important that these budget instruments do not compromise on the quality and […]
