For unattended and continuous use

The Distimatic module can be combined with any benchtop Hei-Vap or  Hei-Vap Industrial to allow for continuous distillation of large volumes of solvent. The module enables evaporations to be run unattended, enabling you to leave your rotary evaporator running overnight or during the weekend.

Hei-Volume Distimatic

Automatic solvent supply of the evaporating flask

Refilling with Sensor-Mode runs automatically and is based on the desired level of liquid in the evaporation flask. Refilling with Time-Mode is done for a set time duration

Automatic discharge of condensate

A valve matrix controls the continuous discharge of the condensate from the system into a temporary storage flask. The collected condensate will be discharged into your collecting tank by a diaphragm pump.

Automatic drainage of residue

The residue in the evaporating flask is drained into a collecting tank. Afterwards the process starts again automatically by refilling the evaporating flask.

End of distillation process

The process can be terminated automatically after evaporation is completed or manually at any time by the operator.

The Distimatic module

Designed to automated the distillation processes in your lab. Increase your throughput and run fast, reliable and continuous solvent evaporation applications safely.

The Distimatic is the world’s first and only automated evaporation module that allows for drainage of the residue when evaporation is completed, allowing for a completely autonomous process.

Key features

Hei-VOLUME Automatic Evaporation
  1. Wide range of possibilities to adjust settings according to your individual needs

  2. The bench-top system can be used in common fume hoods due to the space saving design

  3. Automatic drainage of residue: residue in the evaporation flask will be drained off

  4. Bumping is eliminated by continuously feeding small volumes into evaporating flask

  5. Automated in unattended distillation in two different modes

  6. Automatic refill of the evaporation flask and continuous automatic discharge of condensate

  7. Compatible with all Heidolph bench-top and large-scale rotary evaporators

  8. Applications are completed in an automated and unattended process giving solvent separations of nearly 100%

  9. In case of an emergency the complete system will power off entirely
