Application of rotary evaporator in industry
In industry, there are so many materials and compounds which need to be extracted to get pure individual substance. There are several efficient lab devices for extracting solvents and rotary evaporator is one of them.
Rotary evaporator is a device used to extract solvents through evaporation. It has different parts specifically for the evaporation of samples、condensation of extracted solvent and so on.
The evaporation of samples happens in the evaporation flask while evaporation flask rotates in a constant speed under the condition of vacuum. Then evaporated solvents will be transported into condenser and be condensed into liquid. Finally, the liquid solvents will go into receiving flask for users easy to get.
Plant extraction using rotary evaporator
In some occasion, the extraction happens in solid as well. So besides liquid mixture, rotary evaporator can also extract solvent or component from solid mixture.
For example, plant extraction is achieved by rotary evaporator. Comparing with the extraction of liquid mixture, plant extraction is more complicated. Because plant extraction is a process that demands components within plants need to be extracted. Even through the process is high-standard, the combination function of evaporation part、condensing part、vacuum pump and receiving part make plant extraction attainable. People can get pure extracted solvents from compounds through rotary evaporator.
Rotary evaporator cooking
Rotary evaporator is not only used in chemical、biochemical and industrial fields, but also cooking field. For example, people always use rotary evaporator to increase the concentration of fruit juice through evaporating water within fruit juice. Besides, people can use rotary evaporator to concentrate or purify anything else in the kitchen.
