Vacuum Filtering Directly Into Rotovap?

So I just had the idea to vacuum filter a bucket tek mixture directly into a rotovap using a 2x18 spool filtered over a.c. and d.e. into a rotovap by using the inlet and vacuum port on the rotovap. Idk if it would work but it might cut down a lot of time if it did.

This diagram shows a 1×36 but same principal

pressure filter > vac filter

edit: it will save on transfer losses but not much for time


There’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to do that!

Easiest if you run it thru a pre heater or just run a trickle, when its that cold
