The WaveVortex® 10 is the latest research-grade electrode rotator design from Pine Research.  With a small footprint, the WaveVortex 10 is an ideal instrument for precision rotating disk electrode (RDE) and rotating ring-disk electrode (RRDE) experiments in laboratories with smaller spaces.  The WaveVortex 10 design combines the rotator, control unit, shaft, and enclosure in one compact and convenient package.  The WaveVortex 10 is also compatible with any existing 15 mm OD RDE and RRDE electrodes manufactured by Pine Research, along with many of our cells, glassware, and accessories.

  • Adjustable range up to 8000 RPM
  • Easy setup
  • Small footprint
  • Compatible with existing electrodes/accessories
  • Integrated enclosure with motor interlock

Contact Pine Research if you need assistance determining whether your existing/prospective products are compatible with the WaveVortex 10.

Electrode tips for this rotator are sold separately.

MAXIMUM ROTATION RATE: Each electrode tip model used with the WaveVortex 10 rotator has a maximum rotation rate. Do not the exceed maximum rotation rate when working with rotating electrodes.

The WaveVortex® 10 electrode rotator is designed to suit the needs of those looking to perform rotating disk (RDE) and rotating ring-disk (RRDE) electrode experiments with limited lab space.  This small footprint rotator is compatible with any existing 15 mm OD RDE/RRDE electrodes manufactured by Pine Research, along with many of our cells, glassware, and accessories.

Control box, motor, shaft, and enclosure are all fixed into one convenient unit, making the WaveVortex compact and easily moved around.  Rotation rate can be manually controlled on the front panel with digital display, as well as using an external voltage source from a potentiostat or other voltage source for secondary rotation rate control.

Electrode connections are made to the rotating shaft using silver-carbon brushes. There are two contacts – the red is for the disk, and the blue is for the ring.

The WaveVortex 10 is RoHS compliant.
