Rotary evaporator & plant construction

GIG Karasek has established itself in recent years as an expert in separation technology, especially in the field of distillation. In addition to conventional evaporator types such as falling film evaporators, we convince our customers with the design and production of gentle rotary evaporators to solve particularly complex distillation challenges.


GIG Karasek has no thought and procedural limitations with its comprehensive portfolio. With international experience from projects of all sizes, we are able to develop suitable systems for new, unconventional fields of application, or to optimize existing solutions.

Tailored expertise makes the difference

The focus of our services is the development of individual systems, perfectly adapted to the conditions and customer requirements. Only in this way can we secure the fundamental advantages of efficient distillation in production: obtain valuable materials, reduce energy costs and comply with environmental regulations as efficiently as possible – or an intelligent combination of these priority objectives of modern industry. Many years of experience, a special apparatus technology and clear manageable structures are among our advantages as an internationally renowned expert.

Package Units

Competent, reliable, goal-oriented, cost-conscious, cooperative and proactive, at GIG Karasek we make perfect equipment from your requirements. Choose a partner that justifies your trust. A project engineer accompanies you from consulting, planning to the realization of package units and subsystems as well as their commissioning. Or, on request, also for pure engineering services and optimization measures. Regardless of the scope of services, our goal is to enhance your production with tailor-made GIG Karasek solutions in terms of increased productivity and process optimization.

No challenge is too big for us: Complex tasks spur us on to become even better.
