Rotovap solvent recovery time?


I have a USA Labs 5L RE-10 and hoping to get some advice on water bath temperatures and an approximation on recovery time. Thanks!

My water bath temp is 49c
Vac is -26.5hg
I use tap h20, run off goes to my plants
I get nearly 1gph

Im hoping if i upgrade to a big chiller, i can get better thoroughput.

Yes @demontrich has the same 5L unit.



Man I’m seriously considering ditching the 20L roto idea and building a vacuum pot still instead lol



20 L gets about 3 gph when pimped out.

Anyone that claims more should prove it. Dont go breaking your glass trying to push extreme temperatures!
