SpeedoVap LV: Low Volume Nitrogen Evaporator

SpeedoVap LV (Low Volume) Nitrogen Evaporator the most commonly used evaporator model, is an automated high speed, low volume sample concentrator. It is an efficient new alternative to conventional evaporation techniques. SpeedoVap LV Nitrogen Evaporator & Concentrator can evaporate up to 50 samples in a batch. The system has the facility to use interchangeable racks for different types of tubes with different sample volumes (1.5 mL to 30 mL and Ria vials/test tube/centrifuge tubes).

A micro-processor control maintains the water-bath at the set temperature and the times for the operation. Gas can be turned ON in selected manifolds depending on number of samples. Nitrogen gas is blown through nozzle manifolds into samples which turn OFF automatically after process is completed. Besides other process and service alarms, the audio alarms indicate when the process is complete.

SpeedoVap LV is commonly used for evaporation of solvents in analysis of drug samples or pesticide extracts. It is ideal for sample volumes of 1 mL to 30 mL that need to be evaporated in GC vials, Eppendorf tubes, Ria vials, centrifuge tubes or other test tubes.

SpeedoVap-LV is also supplied with disposable nozzles for those labs requiring this facility. To avoid corrosion, the nozzles are fabricated with rust resistant Stainless Steel. For labs with highly corrosive chemicals, Takahe Analytical Instruments® can provide specially coated anti rust nozzles.
