  • Protocol saving and retrieving
  • Over-temperature protection
  • Soft start rotation
  • Rotation speed from 10 rpm to 150 rpm
  • Timer range from 0 - 1000 minutes
  • Thermostatic tank can be heated from ambient to 180°C with options for heating aqueous solutions or oil

Description

The Strike 20 rotary evaporator from ChemTron combines advanced functionality with safety to provide the ideal instrument for the medium-range recovery of solvents in an industrial or laboratory environment. The Strike 20 is ideal for separating low-boiling volatile compounds from high-boiling volatile compounds.

Key safety features to protect end-users include:

  • A safety shield over the evaporating flask and heating tank
  • Vacuum-tight and corrosion-resistant seals without gaskets to prevent solvent leakage
  • Over-temperature protection
  • Soft start rotation
  • Rupture disk on glassware
  • Powered and electronically-monitored heating tank positioning system with safety release in case of power failure

The Strike 20 can be operated at ambient pressure or under vacuum. The vacuum tight seals provide a vacuum level of 5 mbar that reduces processing time as a result of a lower evaporating temperature of the fluid in the evaporating flask.

All functions of the Strike 20 are controlled through a touch screen display that provides real-time data on operating parameters such as pre-set and actual thermostatic bath temperature, vapour temperature, rotation speed and vacuum level. A timer allows the time to be set between 0 and 1000 minutes. At the end of a timing period the heating tank is automatically lowered, the evaporating flask is removed from the tank, and all functions automatically stop.

Heating is provided by a 33 litre capacity stainless steel heating tank with a built-in 3 kW heating coil. Solutions in the bath can be heated from ambient to 180°C with options for heating aqueous solutions (to 85°C) or oil.

The rotation speed for the Strike 20 can be set between 10 rpm and 150 rpm with a soft start feature incorporated into the instrument.
