On 1/23/2015, BUCHI, the inventor of rotary evaporators, launched the R-100 rotary evaporator, an entry level Rotavapor® to meet the essential needs in evaporation and BUCHI’s high quality standards.
The new BUCHI Rotavapor meets these needs in a way that is unique to this segment. This complete solution, consists of the individual products: Rotavapor® R-100, Vacuum Pump V-100, Interface I-100 and Recirculating Chiller F-100/105. The interface I-100 serves as a central control unit, allowing you to switch the vacuum pump and recirculating chiller on/off.
Ai is now the official dealer of Buchi products. These rotavapor systems are made in Switzerland with two-year warranty directly from Buchi Corporation.

Your safety is important to us! Please use caution when operating. Users of glass reaction equipment must take all necessary precautions to avoid contact with rotating parts, particularly entanglement of loose clothing, hair, necklaces, or other jewelry. Under these circumstances, the winding action of the rotating parts can draw the user(s) into the apparatus, resulting in breakage of glassware, burns, and/or chemical exposure. Extra caution must also be taken when operating with air-reactive materials, especially under vacuum. A leak can draw air into the apparatus and cause a violent reaction to occur.
