This highly effective Mechanical Cold Trap, ensures that no volatile vapors (with the exception of permanent gases) will pass through the unit and into your vacuum pump. A cold trap is a major component of laboratory efficiency and equipment longevity.
This unit can reach a temperature of -80°C, and up to three cold traps can be placed into the chiller. Now you can safely achieve maximum vapor condensation in your laboratory.
By capturing unwanted volatile gases or vapors and condensing them into a liquid or solid form before reaching your vacuum pump, you can protect the internal components of your pump and greatly extend its lifespan.
Each cold trap can hold up to 300 ml. of collected liquid at a time, keeping unwanted vapors in your system at bay. Once the reservoir is full, you can easily dispose of the collected liquids.
Note: If you use distillation units or processes in which harmful vapors could reach your vacuum pump, we strongly recommend that you use either a cold trap or chiller to reach the maximum lifespan of your vacuum pump.
