IKA RV 10 auto V Rotary Evaporators

Category Rotary Evaporator
Manufacturer IKA
Country of manufacture the United States

The completely revised RV 10 auto is the flagship of the IKA Rotation Evaporator product line. Its impressive features include an innovative control concept with a bright, high-contrast, TFT, color-graphic control panel, an integrated vacuum controller, cooling water monitoring and mature safety standards. The RV 10 auto offer all properties required for efficient, safe, and cost-effective operations. These include automatic control of the vacuum and cooling water volume. Its intuitive handling concept quickly leads its users to their desired results in every application. Thanks to specially designed glass guides, the condenser makes extremely efficient use of the 1500 cm² cooling surface. Thanks to its extended ramp programming capability, the RV 10 auto allows users to carry out customized procedures. Other innovative features, such as smooth start, interval mode, right-left operation in interval mode, or the timer function for time-lapse tests, make everyday work in the laboratory much easier. Safety is ensured by the motorized lift with safety-stop function that automatically lifts the evaporation flask out of the heating bath in the case of power failure. Additional safety for users is provided by individually adjustable temperature safety circuits, protection against boiling dry, adjustable end-point recognition to prevent glass breakage, and a locking function. The receiving flask and the condenser are also available in coated versions. The USB port or the RS-232 interface enable remote control with the IKA “labworldsoft” software package and an update option with the firmware update tool. The device comes complete with vacuum hoses and hose connectors for your in-house cooling water supply.
