Smart distillations

The "Smart distillations" of the Rotavapor® R-300 enable an automated, unattended process with optimized system parameters to take place. Users can flexibly program their own SOPs into the system and then monitor their distillations remotely via an app. System uptimes are substantially maximized with the BUCHI Cloud Services for smart self-service tools, and free updates by the push of a button.

Smart distillations

High flexibility

The modular design of the Rotavapor® R-300 helps to meet your individual requirements in rotary evaporation through high level of system flexibility. Thanks to a wide range of system accessories, glassware and the option to monitor the process remotely via a mobile device, you, as a user, gain the ability to customize the distillation process to fit your unique needs.

High flexibility

Maximum convenience

The Rotavapor® R-300 provides you with maximum convenience to conduct rotary evaporation in the lab. It can be easily operated with features such as one-touch interface commands, fast flask handling with Combi-Clip, options to manually adjust system parameters with intuitively placed buttons, and the exclusive possibility to personalize glassware with a customized permanent print.

Maximum convenience


  • With I-300 Pro, users can program the parameters of their own SOPs into the system and then preview the methods as graphs to reduce the risk of error.

  • The BUCHI Monitor App for PCs and mobile devices offer live views and graphical displays of process parameters, as well as push notifications when an action is required, to drastically reduce the hands-on time at the instrument and free valuable time for other tasks.

    Save time with mobile process monitoring
  • The modularity of the system allows users to create a personalized platform that perfectly fits individual applications and budgets.

    Modular design that fits individual requirements
  • The cutting-edge BUCHI Cloud Services enable monitoring of all instruments on a mobile device, provide free updates by the push of a button, and maximize uptimes with smart self-service tools.

    Optimized productivity, steamlined processes and increased security with BUCHI Cloud Services
  • Thanks to the state-of-the-art sensors, you can reduce instrument hands-on time to mere seconds.
