Oil in seed meals by SpeedExtractor

SpeedExtractor E-916: Determination of oil content in seed meals
Determination of oil in seed meals

A simple and reliable procedure for the oil determination in seed meal samples using Pressurized Solvent Extraction is introduced. This Short Note demonstrates that equivalent results are obtained as by continuous solvent extraction according the official method AOCS Ba 3-38 [1], by extracting AOCS certified reference materials.
The standard method AOCS Ba 3-38 requires an extraction with a Butt-type extraction apparatus with an extraction time of 3 h. The oil content is determined gravimetrically after the extract has been dried to a constant weight. In the presented Short Note, the total extraction time is only 45 min.
