Soxtec Systems

Fast and safe solvent recovery

The Soxtec application range covers fat analysis in food and feed as well as soluble material in soil (eg. PCB, PAH), polymers, paper pulp and textiles. Typically five times faster than classic Soxhlet equipment, Soxtec provides rapid analysis with absolutely no loss in precision or accuracy.

Hydrocap

Effective Total Fat

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.

Integrated Total Fat Analysis using the unique Hydrocap single use filter system

Hydrocap system

This unique patented Hydrocap filter contains the sample from the initial weighing, through hydrolysis to final extraction; avoiding sample transfer errors. It is a fully automated system that performs automated acid hydrolysis and Randall improved Soxhlet extraction in one integrated process.

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.

Soxtec 2000 series overview

Approved methods

The Soxtec systems are approved by the following methods:

  • AOAC 2003.05 & 2003.06 Crude fat in Feed, Cereal Grain and Forage (Diethyl-ether and hexane extraction methods)
  • AOAC 991.36 Fat (Crude) in Meat and Meat products
  • ISO 1444:1996 Meat and Meat products – Determination of free fat content
  • EPA 3541 Extraction of PCB in soil and sludge
  • SCAN-CM 49:93: Acetone soluble matter
  • SCAN-CM 67:03: Extractable, lipophilic matter in Paper Pulp
  • EN ISO 11085:2008 Cereals, cereals-based products and animal feeding stuffs — Determination of crude fat and total fat content by the Randall extraction method
  • EN ISO 6492:1999 Animal feeding stuff – fat analysis

Patented and safe four-step extraction process

The Soxtec 2050 performs the four extraction steps boiling, rinsing, solvent recovery and cup lifting fully unattended. When the sample has been loaded, the solvent is added in a closed, secure system. The solvent dispenser, automatic solvent recovery and built-in fume hood limit solvent vapour to a minimum to ensure a safe working environment.
