Project Description

Rocket™ Evaporator System

Concentration and evaporation is an important step in achieving accurate analytical results with sample extracts. It is also labor intensive. The Rocket™ Evaporator automates this process, allowing the analyst to spend more time on other projects. The Rocket™ Evaporator can be used either to dry samples completely, or to concentrate them to a small volume. It is equipped with the advanced performance features that Dionex users expect, such as effective bumping and cross-contamination protection, precise temperature regulation, and easy-to-use controls. A two-stage cold trap is built into the Rocket Evaporator, providing high levels of solvent recovery, even with volatile organic solvents.

Use the Thermo Scientific™ Rocket Evaporator for unattended concentration or drying of multiple large-volume samples in one run. Up to 6 large-volume 450mL flasks or 18 Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ ASE™ vials can be simultaneously processed. The system significantly improves productivity with excellent reproducibility and recovery rates. Minimize cross-contamination and sample loss by directly concentrating your samples into an autosampler vial. If you are performing GC sample preparation on the Thermo Scientific™ Reacti-Therm™ heating and stirring unit, we also offer the Thermo Scientific™ Reacti-Vap™ Evaporator manifold.

Rapid and efficient solvent evaporation:

  • Low temperature, low pressure steam heating technology facilitates fast evaporation and precise temperature control
  • Five times faster than conventional sample evaporators
  • Dri-Pure™ technology prevents solvent bumping and cross contamination.
  • Genevac AutoStop feature for automated end point detection

Easy to operate:

  • Easy to use controls and software
  • Walk-away automation
  • Flip-flop system automates sample transfer from ASE vials
  • SampleGenie™ enables samples to be concentrated or dried directly into storage or autosampler vials

Enhanced laboratory productivity:

  • Unattended evaporation/concentration of up to 18 ASE tubes or 6 large-volume 450 mL flasks
  • Eco-friendly green technology
  • Two-stage cold trap allows high solvent recovery

Recommended use:

  • Use in conjunction with the Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ ASE™ 150 or 350 Accelerated Solvent Extractor to optimize sample preparation workflow and to maximize laboratory productivity
  • Analyze prepared samples with Thermo Scientific LC or GC systems for a fully integrated workflow

Recirculating Chiller

A powerful, compact recirculating chiller is available with the Rocket evaporation system, which is specified to complement the evaporator. The evaporation system can be connected to the chiller by RS232 link, enabling the evaporator to control the chiller, which can provide improved solvent recovery and better drying of samples than by using a static cooled supply. A connection kit with insulated pipe work is available for this chiller.
