The new TurboVap II is built on the solid foundations of reliability and peformance that made it the market leader for solvent evaporation. The unit provides parallel evaporation of up to 6 samples in either 50 mL or 200 mL glassware with or without end point detection. TurboVap II still utilizes the highly efficient patented gas vortex shearing technology, which is synonymous with the TurboVap brand.

This modern design features many new enhancements, including a well-lit glass tank for much greater visibility of the sample, improved sensors with automatic end-point detection, real-time nozzle adjustment, user replaceable nozzles, easy access drain por t, and a color, menu driven touchscreen for simple operation and monitoring. The system can be vented from the bench or placed in the fume hood. Because the footprint is noticeably smaller on this modern unit, less space is required.

Through the enhanced programming features of the new TurboVap II, flow gradients can be programmed to gradually increase as evaporation occurs, decreasing the amount of time it takes to reach the desired end-point, without splashing.

Like the traditional system, racks are available to accommodate both 50 mL and 200 mL evaporation tubes, with and with out the end point sensors. The new TurboVap II is designed so that it can be easily and quickly conver ted between the functionality of the traditional LV and II instruments if evaporation needs change, without purchasing a whole new unit.
