WaveVortex 10 Electrode Rotator

SKU: AF01WV10 Category: Tags: ,

The WaveVortex® 10 is a compact research-grade electrode rotator design from Pine Research.  With a small footprint, the WaveVortex 10 is the ideal instrument for precision Rotating Disk Electrode (RDE) and Rotating Ring-Disk Electrode (RRDE) experiments in laboratories with space constraints or when working inside a glovebox.  The WaveVortex 10 design combines the rotator, control unit, shaft, and enclosure in one convenient package.  The WaveVortex 10 is compatible a wide variety of standard RDE and RRDE electrodes manufactured by Pine Research, along with many of our cells, glassware, and accessories.

  • Rotation Rate is adjustable up to 8000 RPM
  • Small footprint – easily installed in tight spaces
  • Compatible with a variety of Pine Research RDE and RRDE tip designs
  • Integrated Enclosure with Motor Interlock

Contact Pine Research if you already own other Pine Research products and have questions about their compatibility 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.
