Organic Chemists Choose New Generation of Vacuum Pumps

Oct 29 2008

Researchers in the Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany, have chosen the new remote-controlled SC920 digitally controlled vacuum pump system to add to their already extensive collection of KNF Lab pumps used daily for routine organic chemistry.

The new state-of-the-art pump was first put through its paces by students and research scientists in the department, as Dr Frank Hampel of the Organic Chemistry group, explained. “We have used pumps from KNF Lab since the mid- 1990s and, when we approached the company for more units, they asked us to trial the new remote-controlled SC920 vacuum pump that was soon to be released. Our laboratory was ideal for rigorous testing, with constant exposure to corrosive solvents and some potentially rough handling from students at all levels.

We were already more than happy with our old pumps, which are still going strong, but the new system is even better. The new vacuum mechanism makes it even quieter and even stronger than other pumps, and the controller touchscreen and remote control unit are very easy for students to learn to use,” Dr Hampel continued.

“Altogether, we have had excellent experiences with KNF Lab and its pumps. This newest state-of-the-art model is even better and we were first in line to buy it when it became available.”
