Maintenance Precautions And Main Components Of Lab Rotary Evaporator

Precautions for maintenance of lab rotary evaporator:
1. Check the instrument carefully before use. Whether the glass bottle is damaged and whether the interfaces are consistent, please handle it gently.
2. Wipe each interface with a soft cloth (use a napkin instead), and then apply a little vacuum grease. Be sure to cover the vacuum grease after use to prevent dust from entering.
3. Each interface should not be screwed too tightly and should be loosened regularly to avoid long-term locking and causing the connector to seize.

4. Turn on the power switch first, and then let the machine run from slow to fast, and then turn off the switch when the machine is stopped.
5. The PTFE switches everywhere can’t be tightened excessively, it is easy to damage the glass.
6. After each use, you must use a soft cloth to wipe off various oil stains, stains, and solvent remaining on the surface of the machine to keep it clean.
7. Loosen the PTFE switches after the machine stops, and the PTFE piston will be deformed if it is in the working state for a long time.
8. Clean the sealing ring regularly by removing the sealing ring, checking whether there is dirt on the shaft, wiping it with a soft cloth, applying a little vacuum grease, and reinstalling it to keep the shaft and sealing ring smooth.
9. The electrical parts must not be exposed to water and damp.

The main components of the lab rotary evaporator:

1. Rotate the motor, which drives the evaporating flask containing the sample through the rotation of the motor.
2. Evaporation tube. The evaporation tube has two functions. First, it plays the role of the sample rotating support shaft. Second, the solvent or sample is sucked out through the evaporation tube and the vacuum system.
3. The vacuum system used to provide vacuum to the evaporation system.
4. Fluid heating pot, usually the heating medium is water.
5. Condensing tube, use double serpentine condensation or other condensing agents such as dry ice and acetone to condense the sample.
6. Condensation sample collection bottle, the solvent, or sample enters the collection bottle after cooling.
7. Mechanical or motor mechanical devices are used to lift the evaporating flask in the heating pot.
8. The vacuum system of the rotary evaporator can be a simple water pump or other types of rotary vane vacuum pump. The evaporating and condensing glass components can be simple or complex, depending on the goal of the distillation and the characteristics of the solvent to be distilled.
9. Different commercial equipment will contain some basic features. Modern equipment usually adds functions such as digital control of rotary vane vacuum pump, digital display of heating temperature, and even steam temperature.
