A Brief Guide to Cannabis Decarboxylation

Cannabis and hemp have been illegal across many parts of the world for many years, however in recent years the legalities have been gradually changing across the globe. Wholesale legislative changes have taken place in the USA and Canada, shifting an illicit, illegal market into a legitimate, multi-billion dollar industry. Products which are based on […]

5 Innovative Applications of Industrial Rotary Evaporators

Industrial rotary evaporators (also known as rotovaps) are devices which are used to gently and efficiently remove solvents from samples via evaporation. They are typically used to remove solvents from a sample of a mixture of chemical compounds. Industrial rotary evaporators use a vacuum to lower a compounds boiling point whilst the sample is heated. […]

The Basics of Continuous Evaporation Systems

What is a Continuous Evaporation System? Evaporation is a process which separates a liquid from a solid by vaporization or boiling. Evaporation concentrates a solution of a solute and a solvent, usually water, creating a more viscous liquid product. It is often used in food processing, pharmaceuticals, and chemical industries to create liquid concentrates. Evaporation […]

What Makes Ecochyll Lab Rotary Evaporators So Special?

Laboratory rotary evaporators use evaporation to gently and efficiently remove solvents from various sample types including both organic and inorganic analytes, as well as polymeric materials. The lab rotary evaporator induces a vacuum to decrease a sample’s boiling point whilst it is simultaneously heated. When liquid pressure decreases, the boiling point reduces and the solvent […]

Using Rotovaps in Molecular Gastronomy

What is a Rotovap? A rotovap (or rotary evaporator) is a device which is employed for the gentle and efficient removal of solvents from samples via evaporation, and are typically used to remove solvents from a mixture of chemical compounds. Rotovaps work on the principal that the boiling point of a solvent is substantially lower […]

Benchtop Rotary Evaporators: Applications, Specifications & RFQs

Benchtop rotary evaporators are used for the efficient and gentle removal of solvents from samples in R&D and QC-scale applications. They are frequently referred to as ‘rotavaps’ and are used to remove solvents from reaction mixtures and can accommodate volumes as big as three liters. As benchtop rotary evaporators perform this task so quickly, they […]

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 […]

Lab Rotary Evaporators for Cannabis & Hemp

Rotary evaporators are adopted in the specialized collection of various forms of evaporated matter. Industries that would benefit from the extraction of evaporated oil, liquid, or gas utilize rotary evaporator equipment of varying capacity and size to retrieve valuable materials and substances. At Ecodyst, we specialize in the groundbreaking rotary evaporator systems, manufacturing models that […]
