Fast extraction with maximum automation and minimum solvent consumption
Solvent extraction can be performed for extractable matter determination on a wide range of sample matrices either in food and non-food industries (such as pulp, paper, textile, chemical etc...) and for sample preparation. The solid-liquid extraction process removes the soluble components from solids using a liquid solvent.
  SER 158 Series Automatic Solvent Extractor
Fully automatic and cloud-enabled extractors, available in 3 and 6 positions that guarantee security, accuracy and precision in the determination of extractable matter according to Randall and Twisselmann.
The SER 158 Series automatic solvent extractors in 3 and 6 positions are the accurate and precise solution for quantitative and qualitative extractable matter determination according to Randall method, analyzing up to 5 times faster than traditional Soxhlet. 
The solid-liquid extraction process removes the soluble components from solids using a liquid solvent in 5 steps. The SER 158 works in accordance with international standards such as AOAC, ISO, EPA, APHA, UNI.
Safe and powerful heating combined with advanced software and security processes guarantee reproducible extraction processes.
SER 158 is fully automated to maximize productivity and free operator time.

  SER 148 Series - Solvent Extractors
Safe and convenient semi-automated extraction system suitable for fat extraction and sample preparation in a wide range of applications in food, feed, environmental and other industrial segments.
The SER 148/3 and SER 148/6 can be used to separate a substance or a group of elements from solid and semi-solid samples according to the Randall technique (consisting of Immersion, washing and solvent Recovery).
As for the automatic version SER 158, the main field of application is the determination of the content of soluble products such as fats, detergents, plasticizers and pesticides in food, animal feeds, detergents, rubber and plastic formulas, pharmaceutical products, soil.
The SER 148 Series is a semi-automatic solution with no compromises on operator safety (IP55) and solvent consumption also guaranteeing a limited cost per analysis.
Combined to HU6 Hydrolysis Unit, is possible to use the same crucibles to prevent any possible sample loss between the two units

  HU 6 Hydrolysis Unit
Convenient, reliable and safe hydrolysis unit, for the sample preparation prior to extraction for total fat determination

Preliminary Hydrolysis for total fat determination
The VELP Scientifica Hydrolysis Unit HU 6 is the ideal solution for the sample preparation prior to solvent extraction for the determination of the total fat content, in order to free the fat molecules ready for extraction.

This procedure is required in a number of AOAC Official Methods to determine the fat content of food samples such as meat, cheese, seafood, chocolate, cereal flours, etc.
The HU 6 performs hydrolysis in complete safety and handles six samples at the same time in order to maximize productivity.
