RV 10 Rotary Evaporator from IKA

The RV 10 Rotary Evaporators set new standards for safety, efficiency and ease of use. Great attention is paid to the issue of safety, from the Basic version upwards.

The comprehensive safety features also include interval operation, smooth start, end position recognition for the evaporator piston, and a timer function. The digital version also provides a digital temperature display and an RS 232 interface. For fully automated distillation, IKA® offers the control version complete with integrated vacuum controller, USB interface and graphical display.
