Fat Hydrolysis Unit - HU 6

Fat Hydrolysis Unit - HU 6

VELP Scientifica | Sample Preparation - Inorganic

An optimum solution for acid/basic hydrolysis of high fat content of food and feed samples.

The HU 6 offers the optimum solution for both acid and base hydrolysis of food and feed samples prior to solvent extraction for total fat analysis in accordance to AOAC 996.01. Very often samples to be analyzed for fat extraction have higher fat content and need a hydrolysis step for subsequent extraction. The HU 6 is a 6-position hydrolysis unit that combines safety with performance and minimizes manual sample handling. Hydrolysis is carried out with hydrochloric acid for approximately one hour at a temperature of 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. The sample is then ready to be processed using Velp’s SER 148.

Key Features:

  • Rugged epoxy painted stainless steel construction
  • Accommodates 6 samples
  • Up to 20 programs available
  • LCD Display
  • Ambient up to 200 °C
  • Stability of the heating block temperature ± 0,5°C
