Solvent Recovery and Distillation

The term ‘solvent’ refers to several chemical substances which are used to dissolve or dilute other substances or materials. They are usually organic liquids.  Solvents usually have a low boiling point and evaporate easily or can be removed by distillation, thereby leaving the dissolved substance behind. Solvents should therefore not react chemically with the dissolved compounds—they must be inert.

Improving Resolution of Electron Microscopy with FYRA

A customer approached Digivac to assist with vacuum control in an electron microscope. A vacuum within the microscope deeper than 20 Pascals (approx. 150 millitorr) causes visible degradation in the final image. The customer needed the ability to measure inside the chamber and precisely control the vacuum between 20 and 30 pascals while the electron microscope captures the image.

Vacuum Drying Temperature-Sensitive Materials Effectively

Some materials are super sensitive to temperature making it more  difficult  to vacuum dry . It is crucial  to make sure that the temperature remains constant as it can  end in a loss of materials if an error were to happen. Not being able to completely control your vacuum can result in  making you restart the process back to square one.

Don’t Get Fooled By These Common Vacuum Processing Myths

Rotary evaporators are advanced scientific instruments that are commonly used in chemical laboratories, processing laboratories and in research to facilitate fractionation. This separation process allows the solvents to be removed gently through evaporation and the precise control of the temperature.

What is Solvent Recovery?

Solvent recovery is the process of extracting target products from waste or by-product solvents generated during the manufacturing process. These chemicals can then be repurposed, reducing the need to produce or purchase new solvents, while eliminating a large amount of waste and removing potentially hazardous substances from the primary processed material
