Top 4 Things You May Not Know About Evaporators

1. Dr. Neal McNiven developed the first multiple sample, high-speed nitrogen evaporator, the forerunner of many similar devices.

2. Some dry block evaporators can be filled with aluminum or glass beads.

3. Today’s evaporators often handle multiple samples at once, but each must be processed without being impacted by the others. Scientists must make sure that there’s no cross-contamination, which requires careful control of the airflow.

4. A cool use for evaporators outside the lab is on large ships which often contain evaporating plants to make fresh water so they don’t have to rely as much on supplies from shore.

New Brunswick Scientific G25 does not work
So the heating element works fine and when I turn shaker on the RPM tac will adjust when turning the knob but does not shake Or does 1 rotation and stops. I moved the shaker manually and the tension with the drive belt feels good. Also, after I manually moved the shaker around a few times and turned the power on it does a rotation or two and then stops again. Any ideas? Advise this member.
