BUCHI release the Rotavapor R-80 System: Evaporation on the smallest footprint in the market

BÜCHI Labortechnik AG, a leading provider of laboratory equipment, has added the R-80 Rotavapor® System to its portfolio. This entry-level instrument offers BUCHI quality at an affordable price and ensures the efficient use of laboratory space. It also leads the way for more environmentally friendly and sustainable evaporation solutions.

The R-80 is the latest in a long line of revolutionary instruments from BUCHI. While the R-80 maintains many of the advanced features that have become synonymous with the market leader for rotary evaporation, it takes up less space, uses less energy, and puts less strain on budgets.

Compact in size, the R-80 saves valuable laboratory space making rotary evaporation more accessible to those that may not have the resources for larger models.  It will also appeal to those requiring a more compact and cost-effective solution without compromising quality and efficiency.

Commenting on the launch, Mason Technology Sales Manager for BUCHI Michael Kervick commented, ‘the R-80 is a welcome addition to the BUCHI Rotavapor portfolio.  With the smallest Rotavap footprint on the market, it sets a new standard in the industry, making it a game changer for customers contending with limited space in their laboratory.  We’re seeing a growing emphasis on sustainability in equipment selection, and the R-80’s eco-mode technology, delivering a 40% energy saving, will resonate with our customers’ sustainability goals. Moreover, its competitive price point will be welcomed by all.’

Three Standard Configurations to suit your specific requirements

Depending on your specific needs, the R-80 Rotavapor® can be expanded with the addition of a vacuum pump V-80/V-180, vacuum interface I-80/I-180, and high-quality glassware.  It is available in three standard configurations:

  • R-80 Standalone
  • R-80 + Vacuum Solution V-80 with Interface I-80 for manual vacuum control
  • R-80 + Vacuum solution V-180 with Interface I-180 for automatic vacuum control

The speed-controlled vacuum solutions offer near-silent vacuum generation and reduced bumping. The interfaces I-80/I-180 provide simplified vacuum monitoring and control. They can be attached directly to the Rotavapor®, the pump, or a lab stand.

To address environmental concerns, an optional valve unit can control the water flow and save resources by stopping after distillation or by a timer.

Intelligent Design for User Convenience 

Every part of the system has been intelligently designed for user convenience and effortless operation. The central user interface can be rotated by 90° for easy access and has one central navigation control button. The smooth manual lift ensures effortless operation, while the cableless bath allows hassle-free emptying and refilling.

With a versatile heating bath with a maximum working temperature of 95 °C and the ability to accommodate flask sizes of up to 1L, the R-80 is the ideal companion for chemical research.

The Rotavapor® R-80 complements BUCHI’s comprehensive range of evaporation solutions. Together with our partner BUCHI, Mason Technology remains committed to offering solutions catering to all budgets and workflows of academic, pharmaceutical, chemical, and biotechnological industries.
