Cooking-Up Fresh Ingredients with Rotary Evaporators

All workplaces are concerned with productivity. Professionals across the entire commercial, industrial, and scientific spectrums are familiar with the trade-offs between speed and quality. But we are increasingly able to deliver results faster than ever without needing to compromise key performance indicators (KPIs). This often comes down to greater uptick of high-technology solutions in non-traditional […]

Using Advanced Rotovap Technology in Biofuel Extraction

Biofuel is a promising contender for next-generation sustainable energy. Sometimes referred to as biodiesel, it encompasses any feedstock derived primarily from biomass – but most biofuels are complex mixtures of multiple, volatile components. The main constituent of most biofuels is a natural substance (fat, oil, etc.) combined with a highly reactive reagent (alcohol, methanol, etc.) […]

Single-sample Rotary Evaporators for Drug Discovery

As the name suggests, a ‘single-sample rotary evaporator’ does the same job as a rotary evaporator but with a greater intensity of focus upon a single sample. At the conclusion of an extraction procedure, if the sample collected is of a singular species then the testing can be narrowed to analyze that specific substance more […]

How to Use an Ecodyst Rotary Vacuum Evaporator

Rotary vacuum evaporators, often abbreviated to ‘rotavaps’, have been integral installations in all manner of laboratories and research centers for years. Industries associated with the processing of chemical, environmental, or forensics materials have maintained a strong dependency upon rotovap technologies. To achieve a faster rate of extraction, collection, and analysis of remnant or solvent substances, […]

Understanding Continuous Evaporation Units

Evaporation is a unit operation that separates the individual components in a solution via heat transfer and resultant vaporization. The purpose of evaporation is to extract and concentrate segments of a solution, achieving greater properties of power and potency for each fraction. The Evaporation and Extraction Process Liquids have characteristic boiling and evaporation points based […]

Ecodyst announce that Tiffany Cauthen has joined the team as Customer Service and Sales Manager. Tiffany is a Graduate of Rutgers University in New Jersey, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Biology. Upon graduating she worked as a quality control chemist for an international flavors and fragrance company. Although Tiffany enjoyed laboratory bench work […]

Drawbacks of Conventional Rotovaps

Fractionation is an important separation process where a heterogeneous substance (i.e. a solution) is subjected to a phase transition then divided into several smaller quantities based on a compositional gradient. This exploits the differential properties of varying analytes within the mixture. Rotary evaporators, or rotovaps, operate on these very principles. In a typical rotovap setup, […]
