Unique: Automated and accelerated Soxhlet extraction
Official method for many extractions, e.g. total fat determination. Due to the level adjustment, the cycle throughput is increased, which makes a real Soxhlet extraction fast and efficient
Yes, only when working with D-Ether (volatility) or chloroform (toxicity), working in the fume hood is necessary.
When you use a solvent like petroleum ether, a recirculating chiller should be implemented if the tap water is warmer than 15 °C. The temperature difference between the boiling point of the solvent and the cooling water temperature should be 20 - 25 °C in order to achieve a good condensation of the solvent in the condenser and to keep a good solvent recovery.
