Martin Christ RVC 2-33 CDplus Infrared Version High-speed maxi concentrator

This Christ vacuum concentrator is especially suitable for effective concentration of solvents with high boiling points. The wide variety of available rotors ensures high specimen capacity. Thanks to efficient energy input with halogen IR lamps, large specimen volumes (e.g. 100 ml tubes) can be processed quickly for active ingredient screening.

The innovative drive concept is especially noteworthy. The powerful external-rotor motor, contactless central rotary coupling and direct force transfer ensure safe operation. The vacuum level can be preset anywhere within the operating range of the vacuum pump, and the device can be combined with a freeze dryer system.
