I’ve got a couple smaller rotavaps, and I can’t help but notice they’re not very efficient for the price, nor are they very good at removing more than 80% of solvent in an oil.
I’m assuming I’m not running it wrong…but Everytime I take my oleo from the roto into the short path, I find at least 30%+ coming back in solvent. It’s annoying in quite a variety of circumstances.
Does anyone have any tips for better & convenient solvent removal? The short path seems like my best option at this point. Anyone else feel me?
