The Soxtherm automates and speeds the extraction process and can evaporate and recover the solvent. Available as two, four or six place systems, up to four units can be operated independently with software or a single programmable controller.
By immersing the sample in hot solvent the extractable material is removed more quickly than the traditional method. The solvent is re-circulated to rinse the extractable material into the bottom of the beaker. Finally the solvent is removed by evaporation automatically and recovered for safe disposal or reuse.
Safety systems include locating beakers and hotplate behind a glass door, cut outs for over-temperature hotplate, low water pressure and compressed air failure. The Soxtherm extraction system is spark proofed. Soxtherm is controlled by either a Multistat controller or Soxtherm Manager software. Cooling water is only used when the system is in operation.
