Fast and accurate solid-liquid extraction
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. Just Load&Go!
Unparalleled versatility and scalability
The SER 158 Series can work with all sample types and sizez thanks to its unparalleled versatility and wide range of accessories and consumables:
- Butyl, viton and the exclusive vaflon seals ensure compatibility with the majority of solvents and solvent mixtures
- 3 different sizes of cups, thimble holders and thimble allow to extract minimum quantities and minimize solvent consumption
- Cellulose and glass fiber thimbles for quantitative and qualitative analysis respectively
- Compatibility with HU6 glass crucible avoiding sample loss due to transfer.
The SER 158 is a universal solvent extractor and combining up to 4 units enables you to perform multiple applications independently and simultaneously.
Smart and easy to use
The exclusive 7" ControlPadTM of the SER 158 has an intuitive User Interface that facilitates the set-up and interaction with the analyzer.
The SER 158 is designed to work unattended 24/7 with Load&Go technologies, minimizing necessary operator intervention. Integrated yet removable, the ControlPadTM can be connected with a balance and barcode reader for maximum automation and traceability.
Choose from the pre-installed methods, create new ones and mark your favorites for a fast start-up. Each extraction step is visualized on the ControlPadTM along with a great set of information and options.
Results are immediately calculated and stored on the on-board memory. Three USB ports are available along with an Ethernet connection for data transfer to external devices.
Minimum exposure to solvents
The SER 158 safe SolventXpress™ technology allows smart solvent dispensing for solvent addition guaranteeing minimum exposure to solvents and ensuring operator safety.
The condensed solvent at the end of the analysis is collected in the cooled recovery tank in the back of the instrument and the solvent output is completely automatic with one click on the ControlPadTM.
The SER 158 is hermetically sealed and the protective transparent cover preserves from spills and hot solvents. Advanced sensors constantly monitor the extraction process and ensure a safe analysis during all the steps.
SafeEnd™ technology of the SER 158 prevents extracted matter burnings automatically raising the cups after the removing step.
Premium materials for cost-effective extractions
VELP patent-pending titanium condensers guarantee the unparalleled solvent recovery of more than 90% that is collected in the cooled recovery tank.
For the majority of fat extraction applications, the recovered solvent can be reused cutting down operating costs.
Cost reduction is obtained by minimal cooling water consumption ( starting from 1l/min) and the independent heaters switch on/off.
Compact design to save space in your lab
The SER 158 compact design saves precious space in your lab and especially under the fume hood!
The SER 158 is the best in its category in terms of space savings thanks to VELP engineering and the completely automatic analysis step and solvent management.
Cloud technology to raise the bar of automation
