Removal of residual solvent under vacuum

I have a question regarding removal of a residual solvent from a powder. I want to place an open container of my chemical inside a vacuum chamber with another open container of activated charcoal to absorb the solvent, then maintain a vacuum for some time.

I know you can do this setup using two separate flasks, one with my chemical, the other with charcoal, connected with tubing to each other and a vacuum pump. Will using the vacuum chamber be just as effective?

Thank you.
