Infinity Supercritical is working on a LEEP technology for the evaporation of ethanol from a oil liquid. LEEP stands for Liquid Evaporation by Electrostatic Precipitation, and is a new innovation in the rotary evaporation field.
The new technology may provide the following benefits compared to legacy evaporation of ethanol using a rotary evaporation system:
- Less cleaning
- Better user experience
- Faster evaporation and collection of ethanol (for recycled use)
- Does not require the use of a vacuum pump (although one may be used)
- Rapid heat transfer in both the evaporation and condensation end of the process
- Straight walled Borosilicate glass can be cleaned with a spatula
- No complex glass work, breakage, or cleaning
- Larger volumes of processed liquid in a smaller space
- Less parts = less maintenance = lower acquisition cost
- Glasswork is stationary, it does not move
- Solid state rotary evaporation process
- Uses electrostatics to manipulate boundary layer and surface tension
- Elimination of vapor layer increases heat dissipation capacity up to 45x
