Distimatic Pro Functional Principle

The innovative Hei-VOLUME Distimatic Pro module consists of the following main components:

 

  • The control box with integrated compressor and control panel
  • The original educt sensor vessel
  • The level sensor in the evaporating flask
  • The collector with condensate cooling

 

The Distimatic Pro module functional principle

 

The automatic filling and refilling of the evaporation flask is done via the system’s vacuum. Due to the negative pressure in the rotary evaporator, new medium is fed in as soon as the valve on the original educt sensor vessel opens. The sensor detects when the educt is empty and turns off the system. You can easily replace the vessel from which you want to refill while the process is in progress.

The condensate from the evaporation collects in a collector vessel with cooling, which replaces the receiving flask on the rotary evaporator. The cooling prevents undesired boil-up of volatile solvents. The contents of the collector are emptied by means of overpressure under sensor control. The collector vessel is ventilated separately for this purpose and once it is empty, it is evacuated again before the condensate valve to the rest of the system opens again and the distillate continues to be collected.

In the Hei-VOLUME Distimatic Pro 24/7 version, the concentrate left in the evaporating flask can be automatically emptied when evaporation is finished. To do this, the entire system is ventilated and the concentrate is emptied by means of overpressure. Heating tape for draining off the residue is available as an opiton for discharging viscous media.

For safety a cut-out sensor, which is screwed into the glassware, monitors the process and stops the system in the event of a fault. You can also purchase overflow sensors for the condensate and residue collection containers – they switch off the system as soon as the container is full. This can be used in combination with our canisters — thanks to the specially designed screw connection, the sensors are optimally positioned.

With the exception of the level sensor that can be adjusted for process optimization, no adjustment of the sensor system is necessary when changing solvent media. The Hei-VOLUME Distimatic Pro module reliably detects the entire spectrum, regardless of the polarity of your solvent. This makes processing a wide variety of media easy.

The Hei-VOLUME Distimatic Pro automatic module is available for Heidolph large-scale rotary evaporators in two versions: Hei-VOLUME Distimatic Pro and Hei-VOLUME Distimatic Pro 24/7(with residue drainage).

  • Operation via a removable control panel with a colour touchscreen

  • Process parameters can be saved and exported via USB

  • Variety of modes (sensor or time-controlled, manual mode for processing small batches, rinsing program)

  •  The screen can optionally be locked with a PIN code to prevent accidental changing of the values

  • Automatic refill of the evaporation flask and continuous automatic discharge of condensate

  • Bumping is eliminated by continuously feeding small volumes into evaporating flask

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

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

  • Compatible with all Heidolph large-scale rotary evaporators
