HU 6 Hydrolysis Unit

Optimum solution for the acid/basic hydrolysis of food and feed samples prior to solvent extraction for total fat analysis.

mproves Analysis

  • Hydrolysis / digestion by acid or base
  • Ensures conformity with AOAC standard
  • No sample transfer – no sample loss
  • Crucibles go directly into SER 148 or SER 158

Operator Safety

  • Reduces handling to a minimum
  • Automatic extraction of unwanted fraction
  • No exposure to vapors


  • Select a glassware kit and accessories to match workload
  • Hydrolysis is carried out with hydrochloric acid for approximately 60 minutes at 170 °C.
    The hydrolyzed sample is then filtered in a glass crucible and washed with warm deionized water in order to eliminate the residues of hydrochloric acid
