This new industrial evaporator has many features

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The Rotavapor R-250 Pro industrial evaporation unit (photo) now includes the capacity of a 50-L evaporation flask. The new system offers a unique operating concept, many safety features and a robust design to improve demanding workflows in large-scale rotary evaporation. Conveniently, the interface from the benchtop Rotavapor R-300 to the industrial 20-L R-220 Pro and the new R-250 Pro remains the same, so scaling up is easy. This company’s Open Interface and Cloud Services enable remote control and monitoring of the Rotavapor via a desktop computer, laptop or mobile device. Convenient push notifications with key process parameters, predictive maintenance, effortless firmware updates and data-logging options improve the user experience and minimize the risk of errors and downtime. Sensor technology, consisting of a foam sensor, a level sensor and a cooling temperature sensor, enable unattended distillations. — Büchi Labortechnik AG, Flawil, Switzerland
