A rotavap, also known as a rotatory evaporator is an apparatus used in chemical laboratories for the removal of solvents from samples through evaporation.
It can also be used in preparations of distillates and extracts. The rotatory evaporator is designed to work under a vacuum; to lower the boiling point of molecular compounds and heating the sample at the same time. The rotavap works by
- Increasing the evaporation rate of solvents.
- Rotating the samples to increase the surface area of action.
- Heating the organic solution.
The Main Components of A Cheap Rotavap Are:
– A motor that rotates vials containing the sample
– A condenser; usually consists of a coil which passes the coolant or has a system where the coolant mixtures are placed.
-Vacuum system that reduces pressure in the evaporator system.
– Vapor duct for sample rotation.
– Water bath to heat the samples.
– A collecting jar at the bottom of the condenser. It holds the distilling solvent.
– A mechanized system that lifts the evaporation flask from the heating bath.
The vacuum system used in rotavaps is usually a water aspirator with a trap that is immersed in a cold bath.
In modern rotatory evaporators, there have been additional features such as vapor temperature sensor, digitalized temperature display speed rotation.

The rotatory vacuum evaporator in the 50L rotavap gives heat to the bubble flask at a constant rate. This ensures it rotates at a constant speed hence the fluid forms a large film on the sides of the jar.
The 50L rotatory evaporator has a glass condenser that cools the soluble steam. When cooled it is recovered in the accumulator bootle. This is a great improvement to evaporation productivity.
The 50L rotatory evaporator is designed to be suitable for the concentration and purification of biological samples that can denature at very high temperatures. This makes the apparatus versatile. Flexible evaporators combined with polyethylene are used during sealing. This ensures there is a guaranteed high vacuum and a rotational speed that can be adjusted.
4. 100L Cheap Rotavap
The 100L rotatory evaporator has good mobility. It is equipped with universal wheels which make the device movable. The 100L rotatory evaporator is quiet. It is equipped with a brushless electrical device that maintains low noise and is safe.
This apparatus has a double condenser. This improves its effectiveness and ensures the large volume reactions proceed smoothly. The contact segments in the 100L rotatory evaporator all are made with heat resistant materials.
The glass condenser in this apparatus is made of borosilicate material. This is effective for exothermic reactions and when dealing with samples that are corrosive to stainless steel. The glass condenser is designed to have a high condensation effect and a high recovery rate.
The 100L rotavap is also effective when dealing with samples that are deformed under extreme temperatures. This indicates that the device can be used in purifying and concentrating biological samples.
