Buchi B-481 Heating Bath is a device used to evaporate solvent under vacuum; this makes it be preferred mostly as vacuum evaporator. The rate of evaporating solvent is determined by a number of factors including the temperature of heating the bath, the speed of rotation, distillation pressure among others.
The device operates best at 1300 Watt, 60 Hz and 120 Vac. These combinations make the device effective and efficient, hoverer long the usage may be. It is prescribed that a customer who purchases the device is supplied with a power code included as part of the package.
The device can contain a volume of up to five liters to be heated at the appropriate temperature of between 20° to 100°C. Though the temperature should always be accurate, a variance of ± 2°C is not fatal. This variance is so negligible that it may be considered as having no or very little influence on the outcome.
Further, the device has a display used to check and/or monitor the values and parameters. Right next to it, there is an adjustment used to change the temperature input. The device also contain on its surface two significant lights/illumination. Whereas the green lighting indicates power flowing into the device, the orange light signifies the heating level attained in the project.
Buchi B-481 Heating Bath is easy to operate, most of the input features are located on the surface and indicated. It is portable and relatively light, especially when the same is compared with other devices in its category. Further information on the device is present in the user guidance and instruction manual.
