The main components:
- The motor unit that rotates the evaporation flask containing the sample.
- The vapour duct that is the axis for sample rotation.
- The vacuum system to reduce the pressure.
- The heated fluid bath to heat the sample.
- The condenser with either a coil passing coolant.
- The condensate-collecting flask at the bottom of the condenser, to catch the distilling solvent.
- The mechanical mechanism to lift the evaporation flask from the heating bath.
