Swiss manufacturer Büchi has launched an extension to their rotary evaporators specifically designed for continuous cold extraction of natural products. This new series, called the Rotavapor® R-220 Pro family, includes four platforms to meet the challenging needs of scale-up and production laboratories with a descending condenser, receiving flask and a special 4 litre extraction chamber.

The four platforms offer maximum flexibility with the widest variety of glass assemblies; high performance for fastest distillation rates; continuous operation with automatic draining and refilling, and an economical model to cover essential needs.  The Rotavapor® R-220 Pro family features :

  • Continuous cold extraction
  • Batch wise extraction
  • Concentration of the extract
  • Recycling of the used solvent
  • Easy sample handling (beaker flask coupling)
  • Standard distillation or concentration without extraction
  • Optional foam sensor

Easy and safe

The user-friendly design with programmable methods guides the user through SOPs, automatic distillation, even mastering challenging foaming samples, and remote monitoring on mobile phone with push notifications. Its convenient flask handling is patented with the BUCHI flask coupling and unique flask handler.


The four R-220 Pro platforms is able to match your specific needs for maximum flexibility, highest performance, large volumes or essential demands. Seven glass assemblies are available for various uses, including distillation of foaming, while maximum safety is guaranteed by plastic coated glassware (P+G) and additional protection shields and grids. System extensions are easily possible with a wide range of accessories, such as automatic foam detection, temperature monitoring, coolant flow control and many more.

Made to last

Through using corrosion-free stainless-steel and highly resistant materials there is no risk of product contamination. The robust industrial design will give you seamless operation 24/7 for years to come.
