Suitable for the distillation of strong alkaline or acid products as well as very aggressive solvents when the resistance of other materials, e.g. glass, is not sufficient. All parts exposed to the medium are either made completely of PTFEGlossaryPTFEPolytetrafluoroethylene /PFAGlossaryPFA Perfluoroalkoxy or, like the thermometers, jacketed with PTFEGlossaryPTFEPolytetrafluoroethylene . The distillate in the Liebig Condenser is conducted to the collecting vessel through a PFAGlossaryPFA Perfluoroalkoxy pipe.
For heating, we recommend to either use a thermostat or an electric heating mantle. A temperature of +200°C should not be exceeded.
As alternative to the reaction vessel made of PTFEGlossaryPTFEPolytetrafluoroethylene with round bottom, you can also use the reaction vessel made of PFAGlossaryPFA Perfluoroalkoxy with flat bottom. It is translucent, non-porous and can be used with a hotplate magnetic stirrer and a PTFEGlossaryPTFEPolytetrafluoroethylene -encapsulated magnetic stirring bar for stirring.
The Safe-Lab principle:
For security reasons, our distillation apparatus are equipped with the patented Safe-Lab system. This system allows a tight and safe connection as well as an easy disconnection of cone and socket. A special nut which is held on an external thread above the cone holds and locks the socket. For disconnection, this special nut has to be turned clockwise. The power is enforced by the thread pitchGlossarythread pitchDistance from thread tip to thread tip and is transferred axially to the socket. The ground joint is released.
