LabTech VC1000 Vacuum Controller

Category LabTech Rotary Evaporator Accessories
Manufacturer LabTech
Overview

Commonly used solvents have different boiling points and vacuum evaporation levels and if the vacuum is not properly controlled, there is a risk of the evaporation being either too rapid or too slow, thus reducing recovery of vapors or decreasing the efficiency of the process. To optimize the whole process it is necessary to connect an electronic vacuum controller to the pump to achieve correct vacuum in the system for all types of evaporation. LabTech VC1000 vacuum controller is light, compact and extremely easy to use without any extra cost for accessories. The vacuum controller supports all LabTech rotary evaporators and vacuum pumps.

FAQ

Is the VC1000 vacuum controller compatible with all vacuum pumps?

The VC1000 can be used with 110-120 V, 60 Hz vacuum pumps with an evacuation rate of less than 150 liters per minute (equivalent to 9 m³/hour or 39.6 gpm). Pumps with higher evacuation rates may not operate at full capacity due to the internal plumbing of the VC1000 limiting the rate of the pump because of constricted flow. Additionally, high evacuation rates put increased pressure on the internal valve and will decrease the life of the vacuum controller.
