For the determination of total fat according to Weibull-Stoldt or Weibull-Berntrop, samples have to be digested by acid hydrolysis first. For the classical method, C. Gerhardt offers a manual apparatus based on the serial heating unit. With the innovative HYDROTHERM, all process steps of hydrolysis have been integrated into a closed and completely automated system. In combination with the SOXTHERM extraction units, the fat determination can be carried out easily, economically and safely in any laboratory.
HYDROTHERM is the world’s first and only automatic acid hydrolysis system for fat determination according to Weibull-Stoldt. The complete digestion and filtration process runs in a closed system. The unit can therefore be operated outside a fume cupboard. Laboratory personnel do not come into contact with hot liquids and acid fumes.
