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 application areas.

An interesting example of this is the use of rotary evaporators in high-end kitchens and bars. Proven to yield the highest-quality separations of individual ingredients from complex mixtures, rotovaps are ideal for distilling specific flavours and compounds for use in beverages and meals. Yet the cost and footprint of traditional rotary evaporators has been prohibitive for all but the largest—and most commercially successful—industrial kitchens.

Small Rotary Evaporators for Kitchens & Bars

At Ecodyst, we have pioneered a new generation of rotovap technology that aims to address the enduring pain points of conventional vacuum distillation. Namely: cost, size, safety, and sustainability. We have developed a proprietary, first-in-class metallic condenser coil that implements direct self-cooling without the need for dry ice or antifreeze chilling. This promotes greater purity fractionation with higher throughput and negligible safety concerns.

The space- and cost-saving aspects of our small rotary evaporators significantly increase their viability for food and beverage research, or even for direct use in kitchens and bars. Intuitively usable and straightforward, our EcoChyll systems can also be readily operated by novice users with even a cursory understanding of distillation.

Using Rotary Evaporators for Food Analysis and Evaluation

So, rotary evaporators are increasingly viable for budget-conscious researchers in the food and beverage industry, but when might you deploy an Ecodyst rotary evaporator?

To extract specific compounds of interest from a mixture, researchers have to gradually heat it to the point of evaporation and collect the condensate. This isn’t ideal when trying to reduce contaminants and capture the full profile of a specific flavour as it often leads to oxidation. Rotary evaporators avoid this issue by inducing a vacuum to reduce the boiling point of your sample. This effectively eliminates oxidation and preserves the natural, fresh flavours of your ingredients.

Culinary applications of rotary evaporators vary dramatically. You can deploy a rotovap to remove the water from fruit juice to generate the purest flavours possible. They can be used to generate potent herbal extracts. It is even possible to remove the tannins from alcoholic beverages via rotary evaporation.

Interested in using rotary evaporators for food research?

At Ecodyst, we are interested in supplying our innovative rotary evaporators to keen users in any application area. Built on a firm foundation of technical expertise and a drive to disrupt existing rotovap technologies, our range of products are envisaged as must-have solutions for food research applications.

The Hidden Costs of Falling Films

How do falling films work and what are potential solutions to improve them?

Falling films are usually only a partial solvent recovery tool. They often carry hidden costs and time loss because they are designed to recover just 70–80% of the solvents from a tincture of full spectrum oil suspended in a solvent. This requires manufacturers to purchase additional rotary evaporators that significantly slow the solvent recovery process. An alternative option for extractors to evaluate are all-in-one industrial solvent recovery and decarboxylation systems.

The Facts About Falling Films
If you have been around the hemp or cannabis sectors, you have likely heard of falling films. They are widely considered to be one of the fastest solvent recovery systems on the market.While they are a useful addition to the cannabis space, it is important to note that most falling films are not a one-stop-shop for solvent recovery. The vast majority can only evaporate 70–80% of solvents from a tincture, meaning extractors need to expend more capital on inefficient rotary evaporators that entirely erase the speed gain of a falling film.

How Do Falling Films Work?
Solvent recovery is one of the major bottlenecks in hemp and cannabis extraction processes. Whether manufacturers are using ethanol, CO2, or hydrocarbons to extract, they often use solvents such as ethanol in the initial extraction, the winterization or dewaxing, or the chromatography remediation phases. Falling films are distillation machines that use evaporation and condensation to “recover”
solvents and isolate desired products such as full
spectrum oil.

Falling films operate on a basic principle: It is easier to evaporate a thin film of water than a large pool. Most falling films are large columns that contain multiple vertical heated tubes. Each tube channels a thin falling film of solution. In this way, solvents such as ethanol can be quickly vaporized while the remaining solution trickles down to be captured at the bottom of the machine.

Falling Film Challenges
Falling films work best with dilute solutions that are mostly ethanol. Once the majority (70–80%) of the solvents have been recovered, a tincture of full-spectrum oil and ethanol becomes viscous and does not move in a uniform film. At that stage, the small tubes within a falling film can become obstructed while the high temperatures burn the oil.

This kind of obstruction has to be avoided at all costs. Falling films are notoriously difficult and costly to repair once the interior system has been compromised. For this reason, most falling films (except those that are hundreds of thousands of dollars) are only designed to reclaim 70–80% of solvents. They require extractors to make an additional purchase of a 20 L or 50 L rotary evaporator to “polish” off the residual ethanol.

Depending on the company you choose, that additional rotary evaporator will easily add $50,000 to $80,000 to your price tag (not including additional shipping, certification, and training costs). In addition, the high operating temperatures that falling films use tend to spoil terpenes, flavonoids, and full-spectrum oil.

Working with Real Numbers
Let’s look at some numbers to understand the actual time loss involved.

If you are working with 100 gallons of tincture that is 90% ethanol and 10% cannabidiol (CBD) oil, you can expect a 25 gph falling film to recover 67.5 gallons of ethanol in 2.5 h. However, at that point you would be left with 22.5 gallons of concentrated tincture that needs to be loaded into a 50 L rotary evaporator.

A 50 L rotary evaporator can reach 4 gph for very dilute tincture solutions, but if you are working with concentrated tincture, you can expect to get half that rate, 2 gph. Your rate to evaporate 22.5 gallons would be at least 11 h of continuous operation, not including the time to load and empty the system.The total run time for that 25 gph falling film and 50 L rotary evaporator was 13.5 h to evaporate 90 gallons of ethanol. In other words, it’s really more of a 6.5 gph falling film.

That’s not fast, especially considering the price you paid for two different systems and the work to load and empty the rotary evaporator every 2 h.

The All-In-One Solution
In conclusion, falling films are not fast solutions if they need to be paired with a rotary evaporator. They carry high hidden costs and labor expenditures.

This is a problem my company has been working hard to innovate. Our industrial systems are designed to replace all this equipment. Working with the same 100 gallons of tincture as above, our system (X9 200 liter EcoChyll) could evaporate all 90 gallons of ethanol in 6 h. That is more than double the speed of the 25 gph falling film and 50 L rotary evaporator.

In addition, our 200 L system could decarboxylate all 10 gallons of CBD oil immediately. It would take 2 h to decarboxylate. Normally, decarboxylation reactors that can handle 10 gallons of oil cost more than $60,000 and take 6 h to run.

All told, you could spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for a 25 gph falling film, a 50 L rotovap, and a 100 L decarboxylation reactor to process 100 gallons of tincture in 20 h (not including labor to load and empty systems). Or you could spend far less to buy one of our systems and do it all in 8 h. We are pretty proud of those numbers.


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.) and an acidic catalyst (potassium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide, etc.).

Rotovap technology has been essential in extractions for biofuel research and development. One of the main areas of application is the isolation and purification of biomass components that have been deemed viable for energy generation. Once extracted and purified, researchers can test the activity of biologically derived fuels when combined with strong reagents and catalysts. Fully operationalized and wide-scale ethanol and methanol extraction could give industries a viable alternative fuel source to be incorporated into the mass powering of personal vehicles, public transportation and other forms of modern-day machinery.

Rotovap Technology Extraction Methods

At Ecodyst, we stand by our rotovap technology and proudly put it forward as the most eco-friendly and efficient method of separating solvents from valued sample substances.

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, Ecodyst’s broad range of rotovap systems have established themselves as the most reliable and efficient evaporation equipment available today.

Assigned to a vast array of applications, Ecodyst’s rotary vacuum evaporators are employed in sample concentration and separation, solvent recycling, as well as extractions, and collections for critical analyses.

Ecodyst’s Rotary Vacuum Evaporators

Problematic Properties of Past Products

Older rotary vacuum evaporators consisted of some contrasting components which often contradicted the more efficient evaporators of today.

More commonly in the past but still used sparingly today, a classic rotovap configuration contained a time and energy-consuming cooling system which utilized dry ice, water, or chiller mechanisms which, besides being expensive to run, slowed down the whole extraction process.

Ecodyst-assisted Evolution of Rotary Vacuum Evaporators

The emergence of our hugely superior and successful ‘EcoChyll Evaporators’ signaled the demise of contemporary and highly convoluted cooling systems. The deployment of direct cooling systems seriously speeded up the whole process and paved the way for the straightforward procedure followed today.

Crucial Components and Parts

To conduct a complete and professional rotary vacuum evaporation extraction, there are 5 crucial components, in order of operation:

  • Upright True Volume Flask.
  • High-speed Stirrer.
  • Energy-efficient Heater.
  • Self-cooling System.
  • Receiving Flask.

5-point Evaporation & Extraction Process

Though the size of a solvent or sample can significantly affect the minor details of a rotary vacuum evaporator’s operation, the standard process and systematic approach remain roughly the same:

  • First, the solvent is poured into a glass flask which is positioned atop an energy-saving heater. The capacity of the flask container is variable with sizes supplied to accommodate loads of up to 200 liters;
  • The solvent is heated and stirred continuously and simultaneously to make it reach the desired temperature just below its characteristic boiling point;
  • The resultant chemical reaction manipulates the substance to initiate the evaporation of the liquid, separating the vital solvent parts from the waste substance. The waste is safely disposed of through a drain tap fitted below the flask;
  • Next, the evaporated substance is contained in a glass tube utilizing a power suction mechanism which transports it to a highly ecological and efficient self-cooling unit;
  • When cooled to a pre-determined level, the remnants will drip into a receiving flask of varying sizes, depending on the size of the original solvent sample.

The Relative Benefits of Ecodyst Evaporator Systems

Our research and development team has worked tirelessly to come up with a rotary vacuum evaporator, in the form of the EcoChyll system, that gives guaranteed results and high-performance every time.

Cheaper to use and maintain with a wider range of functions and specs, the EcoChyll gives more quality control to the customer. The characteristically quicker processing times also contribute to the popularity of this environmentally empathetic piece of equipment. Contact us today to learn more.

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 on their molecular composition. Therefore, solutions comprising a complex mixture of different elements evaporate in steps. Chemists can extract specific compounds from liquid mixtures by gradually ramping up the temperature to set points, using specialized evaporation units known as rotovaps. Evaporation begins when substances in the liquid reach a temperature just below their requisite boiling point. Vapors can then be recollected as high purity condensates.

Industry-Specific Uses of Evaporation Units

Evaporation is widely employed in a range of research areas and applications for solvent recovery. Whenever there is a valuable commodity contained within another substance, evaporation is pointed to as the preferred process of retraction.

Another industry-specific example of expert elemental extraction includes cannabinoid purification. Cannabis contains numerous compounds of interest, each with complex – and often conflicting – pharmacokinetic mechanisms of action. Extracting and purifying distinct cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol (CBD), is subsequently essential to product success and/or regulatory compliance.

An Introduction to Continuous Evaporation

Continuous evaporation is simply a non-stop version of regular multi-stage evaporation processing in which the feed and product streams are continuous, and their concentrations remain constant.

At Ecodyst, all our continuous evaporator units comprise continuous inlet feed valves for uninterrupted and autonomous operation. Along with our automatic self-cooling condensers that require no user intervention after initiation, our capability to supply continual evaporation and extraction is made possible.

To sustain a successful stream of evaporation, all of the inner workings must function interdependently. Virtually any continuous evaporation unit must possess the ability to heat, separate, cool, and store solvents and substances, striving to avoid unnecessary waste or overuse of vital energy sources.

The Benefits of Continuous Evaporation

Like any continuous process, our evaporation units enjoy higher levels of productivity than other systems. Therefore, inactive intervals between processes and spells of downtime are almost eradicated. As the procedure doesn’t have to be repeatedly halted and re-initiated, the various parts and stages can be monitored by fewer members of staff. This reduces the cost of labor and operation.

Owing to its ongoing operation, continuous evaporation can achieve prolonged processing temperatures in its heating and cooling sections. This helps to regulate the requisite thermal levels deemed optimal for the most efficient heat-transfer temperatures. Contact a member of the Ecodyst team today to learn more.
