For secure fixation of round bottom flask and for reactions that require a larger setup, such as Soxhlet apparatus, reflux reactors, etc., you need this support rod to screw into the StarFish base plate, which stands securely on the surface of the magnetic stirrer.
Depending on the requirements, only half of the stainless steel support rod can be assembled. Its maximum length is 650 mm with 12 mm diameter.
Yes, the rotary evaporator can be flooded with inertgas via the ventilation valve of the vacuum box.
In addition, a external pressure reducer is required to not exceed 0.2 bar overpressure (overpressure shutdown of Hei-VAP Precision).
Findenser is resistant to the majority of solvents and splash-resistant to dilute acids and alkalis at room temperature. Extended exposure to acids or alkalis will attack the outer metal surface of the Findenser. It is important to clean off any chemical spills immediately after they occur.
The inner body of Findenser and the cone/socket, i.e. the wetted parts that come into contact with the substance being evaporated during normal use, are borosilicate glass 3.3, which has very
The silicone rubber straps are recommended for the lower StarFish clamp. They grip glassware, and are very durable. The silicone clamps have a handle for lifting glassware away from the heat.
The Velcro straps are recommended for the upper clamp. They are designed to not grip glassware tightly, allowing condensers to slide through the straps when glassware is lifted, whilst still offering some support. Please note the Velcro straps are not suitable for suspending unsupported glassware
One of the advantages of StarFish is that you can mix and match parts to build the system that suits your application.
If you would like to have water condensers in your StarFish system, you will need two water manifolds (one for water in, and one for water out). If you want to use vacuum or inert gas too, then you will also require a gas/vacuum manifold.
