VC 10 from IKA: Vacuum applications reliable and safe

The universal vacuum controller IKA VC 10 is an easy-to-install and ready-to-use product suitable for bench and stand mounting. The device is used in filtration and desiccators, chemical process technologies, laboratory reactors, analytical equipment, vacuum distillation with rotary evaporators and decentralized and centralized vacuum supply.

We would be pleased to explain more about the device. If you have any questions, our team is available around the clock.

Special features and characteristics

Multiple use is possible with only one vacuum source. A new cleaning function ensures a longer lifetime of the valves and can be adjusted for each application. The device has an integrated, chemically highly resistant ceramic pressure sensor.

In addition to the manual control mode, up to 10 programs can be stored, as well as the possibility to store the last test. By connecting a PT 1000 sensor, the integrated temperature measurement of all applications is possible.

The integrated vent valve makes it possible to equalize pressure or vent with inert gas at the end of the process – and ventilates even in the event of a power failure. In addition, the Vent Short Key button provides pressure compensation during the process. Electronic control ensures better process efficiency and higher solvent recovery

Modern design and convenience in one

The high-resolution TFT color display enables intuitive operation. It also features an integrated, highly chemically resistant ceramic pressure sensor.

In order to constantly improve the benefit and use, control and documentation via the labworldsoft software (RS232 interface) is possible, as well as a language setting (of the entire menu navigation).
