Digestion

Kjeldtherm Block Heating System
Designed to make the most efficient use of space available Kjeldatherm digestion systems simultaneously digest multiple samples. Energy efficient heating and insulation ensure heat is generated in the right areas and kept away from the user.

Tubes are held in an enclosed insert rack, which creates a ‘hot-box’ environment and cooling condensing section for efficient digestion.

100ml, 250ml and 400ml tubes can be digested in different multiples on the aluminium Hot Blocks. 100ml tubes can be digested in multiples of 12 or 40. 250ml tubes can be digested in multiples of 8 or 20. 400ml tubes can be digested in multiples of 8 or 20.

  • Ideal for large volumes of samples
  • Suitable for foaming samples with BS 400 ml tubes (e.g. milk or beer)
  • Convenient lift function for automatic lifting of 20 samples
  • Standardised conditions for digestion
  • Exact temperature/time control

Turbotherm Infrared Heating System
Turbotherm digestion systems simultaneously digest multiple samples quickly and efficiently. Infrared heaters get the system up to temperature within a couple of minutes removing the need for pre-heating the digestion system. At the end of the digestion the system cools quickly and is safe within a few minutes.

Energy efficient heating and insulation ensure heat is generated in the right areas and kept away from the user. The programmable controller in combination with the fast heat up and cool down make the Turbotherm ideal for difficult materials prone to frothing at the early stages of digestion. Tubes are held in an enclosed insert rack, which creates a hot- box environment and cooling condensing section for efficient digestion.

100ml, 250ml 400ml and 800ml tubes can all be digested in different multiples within the same Turbotherm base. 100ml tubes can be digested in multiples of 12. 250ml tubes can be digested in multiples of 6 or 12. 400ml and 800ml tubes can be digested in multiples of 4.

  • Quick heating and cooling of samples
  • Energy/time control
  • Suitable for large sample weights
  • Ideal for strongly foaming samples at high volumes (e.g. sewage or sludge)
  • Suitable for tubes with different volumes (100, 300, 400 or 800 ml)
