Description

The Strike 285 rotary evaporator series from ChemTron combines advanced functionality with safety to provide the ideal instrument for the small-scale recovery of solvents in a laboratory environment. Key safety features to protect end-users include:

  • A safety shield over the 5 litre aluminium PTFE-coated heating tank
  • Vacuum-tight and corrosion-resistant Steroglass seals without gaskets to prevent solvent leakage
  • Screw-on evaporation flasks to create a leak-proof linkage between the flask and the through pipe to the unit's condenser
  • Powered glassware positioning system with safety release in case of power failure
  • Adjustable safety temperature

All functions of the Strike 285 series are controlled through an LCD touch screen that provides a real-time display of operating parameters such as bath temperature and rotation speed.  The Strike 285 series can also be controlled by monitoring the fume temperature with an optional PT100 probe.

Heating is provided by a 5 litre capacity aluminium thermostatic heating tank that is coated with PTFE. It can be  removed for emptying and cleaning and has a planar heater on the bottom to protect the operator from electric shock. Solutions in the bath can be heated from ambient to 180°C with options for heating aqueous solutions or oil.

The rotation speed for the Strike 285 series can be set between 20 rpm and 300 rpm and the unit features a timer with a range from 0 - 99 hours and 59 minutes in 1 minute increments. Once the time is complete the instrument stops and the flask is lifted out of the thermostatic tank. The rotating head has an adjustable low stop sensor that assists in positioning the evaporation flask at the desired level in the thermostatic tank.
