CentriVap Centrifugal Concentrators
Nitrogen Blow Down Dry Evaporators

These multi-sample evaporators use a combination of gentle forces - vortex motion, dry heat and nitrogen blow down - to quickly reduce samples for high throughput.

RapidVap Vacuum Evaporation Systems
Vacuum Dry Evaporators

These multiple-sample evaporators use a combination of gentle forces - vortex motion, dry heat and vacuum - to quickly reduce samples.

CentriVap Centrifugal Concentrators
Centrifugal Vacuum Concentrators

CentriVap Centrifugal Vacuum Concentrators use a combination of centrifugal force, vacuum and heat to speed laboratory evaporation of multiple small samples. CentriVap Cold Traps protect your vacuum pump from corrosive chemicals. 

Vacuum Concentrator Systems

Labconco offers application-specific concentrator systems that package the concentrator, cold trap, chemical trap and rotor under one catalog number. 

CentriVap Cold Traps

Cold traps, available in three refrigeration temperatures, collect evaporated liquid from the vacuum concentrator, protecting the vacuum pump from corrosion. 

Labconco offers a wide range of concentrators and evaporators to meet your sample prep needs. CentriVap Concentrators use a combination of centrifugal force, vacuum and heat to speed evaporation of small samples. RapidVap Evaporation Systems use combinations of dry block heat, vortex motion, vacuum or nitrogen blowdown to reduce samples to dryness or an endpoint volume.
