this kind of pump can also reach high vcuum degree which is enough for low boiling point solvents evaporation.

i don't like furnace heating. so i designed a special heating apparatus below.
it is composed of Single-phase voltage regulator(contact type, maximum power=3000W, rated current=10A), stainless Steel cookware(plus stainless steel heating cycle) and dimethyl silicone oil( viscosity=500 cs). it can be heated from rt to 300℃.

Hi, man,
1stly, Chinese stuffs are cheap but not shitty. u r suggested not to use words like "shitty" to discribe something unless u r definitely an asshole.
2ndly, at the present day, no conutry(no one) can speak poorly of stuffs made in China. The truth is you maybe don't remember ur mama's first name, but you do know the phrase " Made in China".

oh, really. the only good things i've seen that came out of PRC were either designed and engineered in another country or a copy of a foreign designed item.

That seems an uncalled-for response. None of biotech7's posts in this thread warrant unfriendly or snide remarks.

Even if you have had poor experiences with Chinese-made equipment, using the word "shitty" here just seems like a goad.

@stoichiometric_steve: Only one thing in this thread needs the qualification "shitty" and that is your post :mad: :( !

@ Biotech ... tidy little pump you have there! Make sure you do not keep flammables in a normal fridge if it is on since the electrics are not explosion proof, but if its just going to be used as a cupboard then thats ok.

thx for everybody's support or kind advice.

to panziandi
this pump is only for evaporation of rotary evaporator loaded less than 2-litre volume.
as you said, this pump is not explosion-proof.so any produced pressure evaporation is operated in vent hood in case of fire and solvents vapor inhalation.

You work on a wooden bench?
I recall you had a very nice hood.

A wooden fume hood?

Apparently I'm sane for even thinking about building mine out of it.




It\'s a catastrophic success.

Unvarnished wood sucks big time for a bench:D when I get a chance Ill post some pictures to back up what Im saying. My bench was pressed wood so a little spill and it swells up horribly.

Moral of the story if wood is the way to go make sure liquids are not going to make it thought:P





Knowledge is useless to useless people...

"I see a lot of patterns in our behavior as a nation that parallel a lot of other historical processes. The fall of Rome, the fall of Germany — the fall of the ruling country, the people who think they can do whatever they want without anybody else's consent. I've seen this story before."~Maynard James Keenan

Time for some update now. :)

This was the setup in June 2008, as seen in my previous post on this topic:

http://www.elisanet.fi/vili/labra/labra2.jpg

http://www.elisanet.fi/vili/labra/labra3.jpg

Now the evolution has led to this point (it's a bit messy here, my apologies):

Looks very nice domaani: well equipped and a pleasant environment. Is it in a basement? Is it heated year round? Is that a commercial hood? It looks like it.

Very nice pictures domaani. Unfortunately, I cant get the upper links to work to make them bigger though.

What sort of work do you do in there?

Magpie: Thanks. The lab is almost an underground one, being 2 ft (60 cm) above the ground level, just enough to have a small window to let some sunshine in.

The room is originally habitable. A single-room flat which is now a part of my mother's apartment. Located in the basement next to bathroom and sauna. (Labs usually got emergency showers, but having an emergency sauna for relaxation during massive series of syntheses...?)

The hood is commercially made. Cost 100 EUR. I did some modifications to the original plumbing and renewed the electrical installations.

HC: Thanks. I haven't actually worked there a lot until now. We've worked on some organic syntheses with a pair of friends who got a patent on isoquinoline derivatives. I have made some basic syntheses for fun and practice, supporting my chemistry studies.

I decided not to start doing chemistry until I've got the lab in an adequate condition for working. It took almost two years.

stateofhack: Thanks. This is an experiment of building a home lab. A project which kind of got out of hand.

Still a lot work to do. A stand for various distillation column assemblies, house vacuum (I'm fed up with separate noisy pumps), finishing of the pure water system (Elga reverse osmosis, 100 L pure water reservoir and ion exchange apparatus) which is now installed in the bathroom.

Well, maybe I should show a picture which goes back to year '97, when I was 12 years old and playing around with chemistry. Can you recognize the place?

Either ways very impressive! Hats of to you! This has got to be once of the nicest home labs i have ever seen!

Now that is a really good idea. Don't tell me you also have a lake handy to jump into...or do you just take a cold shower.

I have to say I find it amusing in a wry sort of way that you have this nice fume hood but haven't upgraded the sink. That is, unless you count the quick disconnect on the nozzle. Which I don't.
