Vacuum Vortex Concentration methodology – how it works
Solvent evaporation specialists – BioChromato has published online a description of how the Vacuum Vortex Concentration (VVC) methodology enables users of its Smart Series of Evaporators remove high boiling solvents including water, DMSO and DMF quickly and safely.
At the heart of each BioChromato Smart Evaporator is a highly efficient spiral airflow created by a special concentrator plug or “Spiral Plug”. This novel Spiral Plug technology generates a helical flow of air or inert gas agitating the surface of the solvent, increasing its surface area and thereby significantly improving the effectiveness and speed of evaporation.
Since the evaporation vessel on a Smart Evaporator isn’t under high vacuum, there is no risk of bumping or splashing. By using VVC methodology – Smart Evaporators increase efficiency by eliminating the time-consuming task of cleaning apparatus, potential loss of samples and the need to repeat the drying process that can result from solvent bumping or splashing.
