So, I’ve always used dry-ice cold traps between my vacuum ovens and vacuum pumps, but I’ve never had the opportunity to use mechanical cold traps in this situation.
Does anyone have some anecdotal experience with this?
I’m a little concerned about condensing too many flammable volatiles at -105C (not quite condensing oxygen but pretty damn close). The pumps are scroll pumps if that makes a difference.
Just looking to see what people have to say about their experiences w this type of setup.
