Rotating flask

  • The floating rotating flask reduces mechanical stresses, to achieve by constant tightness, a powerful distillation, even under permanent operation.
  • Hydraulic damping system for the rotating flask with drive system (patented), to increase the performance, when drying powders.
  • Surface treated glass flanges for maximal vacuum stability.

Sealing system

  • High performance sealing system
    - PTFE / glass
    - Service life approx. 20,000 hours of operation
    - Final vacuum better than 0.1 hPa (when empty)
    - 3 years warranty
  • Sealing system STACONSEAL, patented (option)
    - Final vacuum better than 0.01 hPa (when empty)
  • By means of the novel sealing system, a very good solvent recovery rate will be achieved

Protection Systems

  • Vapor temperature alarm, to automatically shut off the water bath.
  • Implosion protection hood for the rotating flask, made of transparent polycarbonate.
  • The pendulum system makes the rotating flask float in the water bath, to guarantee highest performance, easy handling and maximal reliability.


  • Excellent suitable for recovery of solvents
  • Problem-free distillation of high boiling solvents
  • Distillation of large amounts of solvent
  • Concentration of extracts
  • Drying of powders
  • Concentration of fractions coming from HPLC
