SOXTHERM® is C. Gerhardt’s innovative, fully automated Soxhlet Extraction System, which is 4x faster than the traditional technique. This fast and versatile system is easily upgradable and delivers accurate, reliable results.
SOXTHERM automates and speeds up conventional Soxhlet extractions, freeing up the operators time for other tasks. It includes an automatic solvent recovery system, which allows solvents to be reused for several runs and reduces chemical costs.
With options for a 2-, 4-, or 6-place system in two variants (micro or macro), SOXTHERM provides throughput options to meet the needs of laboratories. Up to 4 units can be linked in series, enabling simultaneous processing of up to 24 samples.
German engineered for safety, the robust, dependable instrument monitors all process and safety parameters continuously. A front door made of safety glass not only provides an unobstructed view of the flasks and their contents, but also protects the operator from hot surfaces.
The small MULTISTAT controller or a PC running SOXTHERM Manager can be used to operate the system. Both are capable of monitoring and controlling up to four individual units simultaneously.
With MULTISTAT, users can program and save up to 20 different extraction methods and set start times for unattended extractions. SOXTHERM Manager offers a range of capabilities including method programming, operation of the system, optimization of extractions, diagnostics, and documentation.
In combination with the HYDROTHERM Acid Hydrolysis System, SOXTHERM can determine both free and chemically bound fat in any matrix.
The following are the key features of the SOXTHERM Soxhlet Extraction System:
- 4x faster than traditional Soxhlet
- Easy one button operation
- Fully programmable with automatic start up and shut down
