The Thermo RVT4104 Refrigerated Vapor Trap effectively condenses and traps a wide variety of solvent vapors that can contaminate and degrade vacuum pump oil. The RVT4104 vapor trap from Thermo Scientific delivers an easy, safe and practical way to protect high vacuum, oil-sealed pumps in vacuum evaporation systems. The Savant RVT4104 ultra-low temperature refrigerated vapor trap includes a built-in temperature gauge and vacuum pump interlock to protect the pump from accidental contamination. The RVT4104 Refrigerated Vapor Trap has a 4L capacity; ultra-low -104°C temperature traps high volatile solvents. 0.5″ ID connecting hose is a consumable and is not included.  This Thermo Scientific RVT4104 refrigerated vapor trap system is great for labs using highly volatile solvents including hexane, chloroform, acetone, and methylene chloride.
