The SuperVap® 12 position 60/40/20 mL vial Evaporation/Concentration system is the ideal solution for the final evaporation and concentration step for ASE types of liquid sample preparation. Typical extractions requiring evaporation or concentration to a final volume are drinking water, waste water, juice, milk, urine, and human serum. The system uses 60 mL vials for evaporation/ concentration and can handle liquid extract volumes up to 60 mL with final volumes. The final volume is reached automatically by programming an end time. The system is designed to automatically evaporate and concentrate 12 samples simultaneously and will shut off when the programmed end time is reached, which triggers an audible alarm.
Automated Concentration and Evaporation
The SuperVap system is an automated, standalone, concentrator/evaporator that replaces older techniques such as KD, nitrogen blow down and water baths. By automating what were once manual evaporation and concentration processes, the SuperVap concentration system accelerates your sample throughput, lowers labor costs, and improves the consistency of your results by eliminating the variability inherent in manual sample prep procedures.
The SuperVap concentrator sets new a standard for consistency, speed, and reliability of results for an automated sample evaporation and concentration system. It is ideal for the analysis of pesticides, herbicides, Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), PCBs, PAHs, pharmaceutical byproducts, and personal care byproducts as well as many other applications. The programmable SuperVap concentrator is a dry, waterless concentrator that can preheat as well as ramp up to final temperature. It automatically senses when the extract is being delivered to each vessel, starts the blow down and then shuts off the nitrogen when final volume is achieved. The concentrated samples are then automatically transferred directly to a vial, eliminating the errors that occur during manual transfer.
The SuperVap concentration system uses a touch screen display for programming, storing, and running methods. Real-time plotting of temperature readings are displayed throughout the process. Simply touch a point on the plot and instantly see the temperature of that point.
The SuperVap system performs the entire evaporation and concentration process, automatically, delivering consistent, reproducibly high recoveries for all analytes. Unattended operation of the sample prep process saves time, reduces labor costs, glassware and solvents.
High Recovery of All Analytes
The SuperVap system provides direct-to-vial concentration with automatic endpoint detection and Nitrogen shut off for each vessel
Uses No Water
Uses a robust waterless, dry bath with no electronics submerged in water. It easily and inexpensively captures solvents.
Concentrates up to 12 Samples
Sample Sizes up to 20/40/60 mL.
An integrated HEPA/Carbon filter eliminates outside contamination.
You can use your own 20, 40, 60ml
Automatic endpoint detection, nitrogen shutoff, and alarm for each vessel. Programmable heat ramp and nitrogen settings for precise control of the concentration and evaporation process.
Every method and run is documented and stored on the SuperVap system for easy retrieval for electronic documentation. A temperature log for each run is also saved and may be downloaded to a PC via a USB port.
Stand Alone or Integrated
The SuperVap concentrator can be easily integrated into existing FMS sample preparation systems. Integration allows for PC-based control and automatic solvent exchange.
