What is the difference between Heidolph’s GREEN & PLATINUM Packages?
VACUUM CONTROL. The PLATINUM Package features the Vario Tec vacuum pump which controls vacuum by varying pumping speeds. This tighter tolerance in vacuum control produces faster distillation over other Heidolph 5 Liter models. Also, the Vario Tec vacuum pump is quieter than the Valve Tec vacuum pump found on the Heidolph GREEN Package rotary evaporator.
Less babysitting, more efficient recovery, vacuum pump preservation
The PLATINUM Package offers the RPM regulated vacuum pump has a variable speed motor, automatically adjusting the vacuum pump speed without a vacuum valve. The RPM Regulated pump can come to a complete stop when the required level of vacuum is achieved. Vacuum control allows for “walk away” distillation, rather than having a dedicated person controlling the vacuu
Heidolph 5 Liter PLATINUM Package Includes:
Heating Bath & Control Base – Hei-VAP Ultimate (036000020)
Highest Temperature Bath. Only the Hei-VAP heating bath reaches 210 °C. If bath temperature overshoots by 5°C and if your water bath runs dry, heating will be switched off automatically by two independent safety circuits. Individually pre-program a maximum temperature at which the bath powers off. System also includes an integrated pour spout to remove bath fluid safely and accommodates flasks up to 5 liters.
Provide safe transportation eliminate the risk of scalding
The heating bath can be adjusted horizontally up to 200 mm. In case of a power failure, the motor lift models will remove the flask from the heating bath preventing safety hazards and potential thermal damage to your product
Ingress Protection Rating IP67 Prevents Short Circuits & Corrosion
To prevent short circuits and corrosion, the electrical cable coupling complies with the high protection class IP 67
Electrical Reqs: 115 V | 12A | 60 Hz
Vacuum Pump – Vario Tec (036308100)
The vacuum pump included with the PLATINUM Package is a clean, oil-free, 2 stage diaphragm vacuum pump. All components that contact solution vapors are built from chemically resistant PTFE fluoropolymer. The gas ballast valve has been optimized to prevent media condensing in the pump. This pump is made in Germany.

- 1.0 meters/hr pumping speed
- Can be combined with a condenser
- Power input: 160W
- Weight: 4.3 kg
- Dimensions: L156 x W236 x H196 mm
- Electrical Reqs 115 V | 12A | 60 Hz
Vacuum Control – Less babysitting, more efficient recovery, vacuum pump preservation
The PLATINUM Package offers the ultimate in vacuum control with an RPM Regulated Vacuum Pump for more precise vacuum control. The RPM regulated vacuum pump has a variable speed motor, automatically adjusting the vacuum pump speed without a vacuum valve. The RPM Regulated pump can come to a complete stop when the required level of vacuum is achieved. Vacuum control allows for “walk away” distillation, rather than having a dedicated person controlling the vacuum.
Chiller – Hei-Chill 600 (036306518)
Undersized or inefficient chillers can be a weak link in rotary evaporation system or vacuum distillation performance. On less expensive models, be sure to compare performance data of the included chiller. The Rotachill Duo Chiller is made in the USA.
- Cooling Capacity -10°C is 600 Watts
- Electrical Reqs: 120V | 12A | 60Hz
Note that 10L of Kryo fluid is included in the package.
- Lauda Kryo 30 Thermal Fluid
Quality Glassware From Germany
Thin, unbalanced glass can easily break, contributing to on-going maintenance and consumables costs. Heidolph’s glass is high quality lab-grade glass manufactured in Germany.
Heidolph Platinum Package Glassware
- Vertical Condenser Glassware G3B XL; condensing surface of 2200 cm2 for maximum evaporation rates; with transparent protective, plastic coating. 24/40 neck size
- 5L Evaporation Flask (036305000)
- 3L Receiving Flask (036302590)
- Vapor Tube
- Patented Glass Flask Clamp – “Easy-Clip” – won’t get lost due to a direct connection to the drive and the integrated screw thread allows easy removal of sticking glass flasks. The Easy-Clip is made of highly resistant synthetic material which ensures a long life of performance
Vapor Temp Sensor with Patented Clamping Sleeve (036308010)
The patented clamping sleeve allows easy removal of the vapor tube from the drive keeping production flowing. The Hei-VAP vapor tube does not get stuck in the drive, thus eliminating the risk of broken glass.
