For high-volume testing labs, reducing solvent emissions can be a time-consuming regulatory nightmare. Emissions from laboratories can pollute both the air and water surrounding the facility, in addition to exposing personnel to health risks. The EPA now requires all major sources of emissions to obtain an air permit. A major source is defined as having the potential to emit over 10 tons per year of a single hazardous air pollutant (HAP) or over 25 tons of combined HAPs.

Berlin, MA, January 5, 2015 – Organomation is proud to announce that instrument models in the company’s flagship product line, N-EVAP nitrogen evaporators, now come standard with fully stainless steel needles. In the past, these instruments came standard with plastic hub stainless steel needles which are still available as an optional accessory.
Berlin, MA, December 9, 2014 – Each year, Lab Manager publishes a purchasing guide which covers a wide range of laboratory product categories. The 2014-2015 edition features two different Organomation evaporators and one of the company’s nitrogen generator models.
As stated earlier, at a given temperature the optimal gas flow may be defined as the highest velocity at which the gas jet can impinge on the solvent surface without causing excessive turbulence. This being the case there are in essence two potential operational modes (1) a uniform operational mode in which all of the sample vials are identical and all of the samples are intended to be processed in the same manner and (2) an incongruous operational mode in which individual samples are of varying size or composition and therefore require different process parameters.
In previous discussions, it was noted that the two key factors affecting the evaporation rate of a given solvent are temperature and gas flow. Further, the evaporation rate of the subject solvent has been shown to increase with a corresponding increase in either of these variables. Increasing the bath temperature increases the solvent's vapor pressure and its volatility so that the solvent vapor collects in the sample holder to the saturation point, while increasing the flow of gas into the sample holder physically removes the solvent vapor.
