TurboVap® EH solvent evaporation unit provides parallel evaporation of two collection racks from Extrahera™, and continues to utilise the highly efficient patented gas vortex shearing technology, synonymous with the TurboVap brand.
The TurboVap EH has many new and improved hardware features versus the old style TurboVap family, notably enhanced visibility, removable and replaceable nozzles, easily exchangeable manifolds to switch system configurations, evaporation flow gradients, drain port and touch screen interface. To complement the TurboVap EH is a rack holder which allows end-user to take their collection racks from Extrahera directly to the TurboVap EH without having to move sample vials/tubes to a dedicated TurboVap rack, seamless sample processing to evaporation.
Gas Supply and Connection
The system can operate using inert gas. Compressed air can be used but is not recommended with some solvents due to the possible risk of explosion. The gas tube supplied with the system has a 6 mm outer diameter. An adapter for connecting a gas tube with an outer diameter of 1/4" can be purchased separately.
Note: There is no regulator for the gas inlet supplied with the system. This can be purchased separately as an optional accessory (P/N 352281SP Air Control Unit and P/N 353480SP Supply Connection Set).
- Minimum supply pressure: 4 bar (0.4 MPa, 58 PSI).
- Required supply pressure for full flow capability: 6 bar (0.6 MPa, 87 PSI).
- Maximum pressure: 9 bar (0.9 MPa, 130 PSI).
- Required supply flow for full flow capability:
- 48 positions: 200 litres/min
- 24 positions: 160 litres/min
Water Bath Temperature Range
Ambient to 90°C, ± 2°C accuracy
Heating time from 20°C to 55°C is approx. 40 mins.
Gas Flow Range
The maximum settable gas flow depends on the gas supply pressure and flow, the number of available nozzles and how many that are open. The maximum settable gas flow for each nozzle are as follows:
- 48 positions: 3.5 litres/min
- 24 positions: 5.5 litres/min
- Formic acid 5 %
- Acetic acid 10 %
- Phosphoric acid 5 %
- Propionic acid 5 %
- Ammonium hydroxide 5 %
- Triethylamine 5 %
Racks and Tube Sizes
TurboVap EH sample/collection rack holder with 2 positions for the following Extrahera sample/collection racks:
- 24 Positions, 12 x 75 mm Tubes
- 24 Positions, 16 x 75 mm Tubes
- 24 Positions, 18 x 75 mm Tubes

Connection for end-point detection
The system must be either connected to ventilation system using the exhaust outlet at the rear of the system or placed in a well-ventilated fume hood or an equivalent enclosure to reduce the risk of exposure to harmful solvent vapours. The ventilation system or fume hood must be capable of exhausting 1 m3/min (35.3 ft3/min).
Connection: The exhaust hose supplied with the system is 3.8 meters (12.5 feet) and has a 50.8 mm (2") inner diameter.
