The new Centrifan™ PE simplifies small volume evaporation tasks for synthetic and medicinal chemists, as well as pharmaceutical, biotech, and university researchers. Proprietary self-generated blowdown technology eliminates the potential problems with common evaporation systems such as vacuum centrifuges, rotary evaporators, nitrogen blow-down, and freeze dryers. Experience reliable results, lower costs, greater safety, and increased productivity by choosing the Centrifan™ PE for your laboratory!
 

Specifications
Easy - Operation Frees Your Time
  • Just close the cover and walk away – no monitoring required.
  • Dry samples directly in 20mL scintillation and other common vials.
  • No need to maintain a vacuum pump or use a large supply of blow-down gas.
  • Move the portable unit near your experiment – it even operates on a lab cart.
  • Set the required temperature (ambient to 55°C) and off-timer (minutes to hours).
Efficient - Technology Delivers Reliable Results
  • The low price Centrifan™ PE withstands years of lab work with virtually no maintenance.
  • The self-generating blow-down technology protects samples from loss.
  • Centrifugal force allows secure drying directly in convenient scintillation vials.
  • High vapor recovery permits collection of the condensate as the final product.
Effective - Process Eliminates Cross Contamination
  • No vacuum pump means no cross contamination from solvent bumping.
  • Radiolabeled compounds dry safely.
  • Residual solvent content in the sample can be reduced with inert dry gas.
  • Compact unit fits in a hot cell to contain radioisotopes.
Environmental - Design Saves Energy, Protects Your Health
  • The unit captures toxic vapors and materials in a closed system.
  • Quiet operation reduces noise pollution in the laboratory.
  • Low power consumption saves energy.

 

Completely self contained, no vacuum pump!
The Centrifan™ PE is a convenient, compact evaporator/concentrator for research, pharmaceutical, and biotech labs working with samples such as DNA, RNA, and protein. Synthetic and medicinal chemists will save time because the Centrifan™ PE dries samples without the monitoring required by a rotorvap. The system also works well for processing fractions collected from flash liquid chromatography. Pharmaceutical and university labs working with radioactive and other highly toxic compounds will appreciate the advantage of the green chemistry design.



The versatile Centrifan™ PE has a rotor to fit your needs. Choose from one of seven different standard rotors, or we can make a custom rotor for your application.
