The main components:

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