True Soxhlet

Soxhlet extraction is exhaustive and rugged and the principle remains as the mostly used and regulatorily demanded method for many sample matrices. We offer quick and compliant true Soxhlet with the cost-efficient FatExtractor E-500. This method obliterates the need for time-consuming validation of other extraction methods deviating from the standard, while guaranteeing the most accurate analytical performance possible. Because of its reliability, Soxhlet extraction is also used as a reference method for NIR calibrations.

True Soxhlet

Soxhlet extraction made faster

The FatExtractor E-500 offers you reduced time-to-result and unprecedent sample throughput per day. How? Optical sensors, powerful heating and optimized glass assembly combined to substantially reduce your extraction times. An automated Soxhlet process enables you to reach unmatched speed compared to traditional glass assemblies.

Interchange between glass assemblies (SOX-HE-ECE)

Easily exchange glass assemblies that are compliant with Soxhlet, Randall (HE) and Twisselmann (ECE) for true versatility. The FatExtractor E-500 is not limited to one extraction method, but is adaptable to your changing needs. Profit from unrivalled quick extraction times and lowest solvent consumption during HE.

Features

  • By simply changing the glass assembly, the FatExtractor E-500 complies with standard methods such as Soxhlet, Hot Extraction (HE) or Twisselmann (ECE).

    Interchangeable glass assembly
  • The freshly distilled solvent is collected in an easily accessible and detach­able bottle. Execute an environmental friendly extraction process and save money. The innovative flange z-seal system guarantees minimal solvent emission.

    Re-use your solvent
  • In the Soxhlet LSV version, the main glass parts are expanded up to 60 %, as needed for direct extraction of low fat samples.

    Adapt to sample size
  • Gain highest turnaround of Soxhlet cycles by adjusting the level detection sensor to the sample volume. Significantly increase the extraction efficiency and your sample throughput per day.
