PARALAQUA® combination with a rotary evaporator from IKA-Werke GmbH & Co. KG
The PARALAQUA® is a device especially designed for rotary evaporators, it simultaneously creates a controllable vacuum and provides cooling water. A 230 V mains outlet is all that is needed, no water connection is necessary.
As a result of the lowest possible cooling water temperature (to –5° C using antifreeze), and the controllable vacuum, almost loss-free solvent distillation is possible, as the cooling temperature and the vacuum, for every distillation programme can be individually set. This in turn means a maximum efficiency in reclaiming the solvents as well as a minimum solvent waste burden. Water consumption drops to nil since the water jet pump and the cooling of the tap water is no longer required.
The vacuum area is between a PTFE diaphragm pump and a electronic regulator, which contains a ceramic sensor; pressure is regulated between 1000 and 0 mbar.
The PARALAQUA® is a great cost saving option for rotary evaporators.
The vacuum can be infinitely varied, once the required level is reached, the vacuum pump switches off. The monotoring of the vacuum is carried out via a robust wear-free ceramic pressure sensor. The pressure sensor is covered by a 2 year guarantee.
A gassing option exists to break the vacuum created.
A cost effective solution to remove water use and reduce environmental impact
The vacuum can be used seperately to the cooling system, e.g. for filtration or extraction cooling.
