The most compact and reliable Acid-Resistant EZ-2 Plus sample evaporator available.

Genevac evaporators are robust systems designed to be resistant to the most common solvents and acids used within the chemistry laboratory, including Trifluoroacetic Acid (TFA), Dichloromethane (DCM), and Dimethyl Sulphoxide (DMSO).

However a wide range of applications in the Pharmaceutical, Speciality / Fine Chemical, Petrochemical, Cosmetic, Electronic and Nuclear industries use acid chlorides and stronger mineral acids for routine synthesis and experimentation.

For laboratories that wish to use stronger mineral acids and acid chlorides, special models of Genevac systems exist which are specifically designed to be resistant to these highly corrosive acids including acid resistant versions of Genevac's HT-4X, HT-12 and EZ-2 evaporators.

The most recent addition to this range is the third generation, Acid-Resistant EZ-2 Plus Evaporator which uses inert and corrosion proof materials to enable it to withstand up to 6N Hydrochloric acid, 70% Nitric acid and most acid chlorides including thionyl chloride.

These strongly acidic materials can be routinely removed from samples without any loss of performance or long-term deterioration in the system.

Acid resistant components in the Acid-Resistant EZ-2 Plus include a PTFE coated evaporation chamber, a glass condenser and all metallic parts coming into contact with removed solvent are manufactured from acid resistant Hasteloy® C steel.

The innovative design of the Acid-Resistant EZ-2 Plus presents real advantages for all scientists and engineers tasked with removing both regular solvents and strongly acidic chemicals.

Intuitive controls and large LCD display provide ease of use comparable to a typical rotary evaporator yet the Acid-Resistant EZ-2 Plus can process many more samples per unit time.

Smart evaporator software provides true walk-away automation so simple and sample safe that anyone can use it with confidence.

The proprietary pump technology combined with a visible glass condenser trap and easy access solvent drain valve make the Acid-Resistant EZ-2 Plus the most compact and reliable acid resistant sample evaporator available.
