Soxtec™ 8000

Fully automated solvent extraction unit using Soxhlet method

The Soxtec™ 8000 extraction unit is a fully automated system for fast and safe extraction of soluble matter from a wide range of matrices. It performs the four extraction steps boiling, rinsing, solvent recovery and auto-shut down, fully unattended. Just load, start and walk away. The Soxtec™ 8000 is specially designed to ensure the highest possible throughput and safety.

Parameters

Crude fat, Total fat and Extractable matter

Sample types

Fat in food and feed. Extractable matter in textile, paper pulp, plastics, rubber etc. PCB and PAH in soil and sludge (the Soxtec is a preparatory step to GC-MS)
Soxtec 8000 and Hydrocap 8000

The first fully automated Soxhlet extractor

Consisting of an extraction unit, a hydrolysis unit and a single filter that is common to both units, the new Hydrotec™ and Soxtec™ 8000 allows you to perform hydrolysis and Soxhlet analysis in one integrated action.

Method for total fat analysis

The hydrolysis stage is often considered the bottleneck in total fat analysis because a limited flow of samples here means limited flow in the subsequent extraction phase. The unique Hydrocap single filter improves throughput by containing the sample all the way through from the initial weighing, through hydrolysis to final extraction.

Method for crude fat analysis

Safe and consistent solvent dosage with an easy-to-use and enclosed system for controlling solvent volume. Solvent is added in a closed, secure system using a smart dispensing selector that aligns the solvent addition tubes to individual sample positions. Along with a wide range of accessories ensuring safe and effective sample handling, the FOSS crude fat solution offers a versatile solution for automated fat extraction.

Extractable Matter

Keep your operations flexible and respond quickly to the demands of your customers with a FOSS solution for determination of extractable matter, within a very wide range of sample matrices and a broad range of organic solvents. With a six position extraction system (expandable to 12) it’s easy to increase capacity according to customer requirements.

Hydrotec 8000

Hydrolysis with the unique HydroCap system

For total fat analysis, the sample is transferred after hydrolysis, from the hydrolysis unit to the Hydrotec 8000 extraction unit, using the unique Hydrocap single use filter system.
