Yamato RE Series Highly Functional & Programmable Rotary Evaporator



RE601 and RE801 are highly functional and programmable rotary evaporators which are standard equipped with motorized lift, vacuum regulator, vapor temperature display functions and automatic distillation function.

Common features of RE601 and RE801

  • One touch electric lift for easy up and down movement of the rotary evaporator
  • Digital setting and display for motor speed (rpm), vacuum and vapor temperature
  • Stable rotation of rotary evaporator at low and high speeds
  • Unique durable vacuum seal suitable up to 2L flasks
  • One touch operation for displaying and saving operating conditions
  • Rotary Evaporator is equipped with lift-up switch in the event of power outage
  • Rotary joint’s locking position is adjustable up to 80 mm; useful when using evaporating flasks with varying capacities or when there is a need to shift the vacuum seal’s contact position (Patent No. 3220033)
  • Vertical condenser prevents liquid from stagnating.  New condenser tubes (type A&B) are designed to increase cooling capacity with a 20% larger surface area (Patent No. 4597021)
  • Evaporating flask can be released easily and quickly by turning the flask release nut
  • Compact, fits into any fume hood
  • Universal power supply: rotary evaporator works with 100-240VAC

Unique features of RE801

  • Automatic distillation
  • Continuous bath control
  • Data on 53 solvents installed as default
