RC 2 lite

Compact recirculating chiller with powerful 400 W cooling capacity, designed for simple cooling tasks down to -10 °C.

The RC 2 lite is the perfect peripheral device for the cooling of rotary evaporators, reflux condensers or as a cooling source for devices that dissipate heat with the help of a heat exchanger (e. g. double-walled grinding containers, cooled incubators, laboratory reactors, cooling coils).

The easily accessible and easy-to-clean mesh filter (stainless steel) ensure a consistently high cooling capacity over years. Thanks to the low filling volume of just one liter, the RC 2 lite is able to reach low temperatures particularly fast. The large working volume of 2.5 liters enables a high number of external applications without refill of liquids. The filling level in the reservoir can be clearly observed through the large, illuminated sight glass.

The powerful pressure and suction pump enables the simultanous operation of several small applications as well as external applications in open bath vessels in combination with a level controller. Thanks to the natural refrigerant R290, the RC 2 lite is remarkably environmentally friendly and well prepared for the future.



IKA Their laboratory technology offers a wide range of innovative equipment for numerous applications in research and development. IKA has gained a leading position in the world market with its innovative magnetic stirrers, mixers, overhead stirrers, shakers, homogenizers, mills, rotary evaporators, calorimeters, laboratory reactors and specially developed software for laboratory and analysis applications, as well as temperature control products such as circulators, baths and chillers. The Process Technology division of IKA offers turnkey solutions and state-of-the-art manufacturing options. The company includes : dispersing machines, homogenizers, stirrers, jet flow agitators, kneading machines, vacuum dryers as well as ready-for-use process plants, with outstanding high product quality. IKA is known worldwide to be a respectable and reliable partner of the pharmaceutical industry. The portfolio of the company includes machines and equipment used for the production of homogenous emulsions and suspension as well as for drying and mixing of free-flowing solids. Their innovative mixing technology covers the entire spectrum of pharmaceutical production: from products low in viscosity such as injections and cough syrup to highly viscous products such as suppositories and dental masses. IKA offers well-priced and robust stirring devices for simple mixing tasks. A particularly impressive performance with minimal energy demand is rendered by the jet stream mixer ROTOTRON.  Thanks to the high-performance rotor/stator systems these machines can even crush and mix generally non-mixable substances. With their mixing technologies, products retain exclusive organoleptic characteristics and a particularly appetizing look. IKA possesses an extensive know-how when it comes to the food industry's multifaceted mixing processes:
  • emulsifying and homogenizing
  • wet grinding
  • dispersing and powder input
  • drying and mixing of free-flowing solids

 cosmetics industry

Every new product is born in the lab - every new process is born in small batches, but often evolves into large scale production. IKA uses this knowledge to your advantage and expands the product range for the cosmetics industry with innovative machines and equipment that will help you tap into new markets. With machines ranging in size from lab to pilot, the company offers you the accurately functioning pattern to realize your production idea. IKA versatile mixing technologies improve the dispersing quality. This decreases production times and therefore increases your company's productivity. Experiences in the lab can be reliably transferred over to the actual production scale.
