Pressurized solvent extraction taken to a new dimension

Nov 14 2012

The main focus of modern analytical laboratories is minimizing the time that elapses between sample analysis and result generation. Even today, despite modern extraction techniques, the extraction process can be very time consuming. Thanks to the unique design of Büchi’s new SpeedExtractor, pressurized solvent extraction is taken to a new dimension.

With its parallel format, up to six samples can be extracted simultaneously in approximately 20 to 40 minutes. As a result, incoming batches can be processed immediately and the analysis result is available on the same day even if subsequent extensive purification steps are required. This allows for a previously unheard level of efficiency and throughput: up to 96 samples in one work day!

The SpeedExtractor also distinguishes itself by its user-friendliness: The desired method is loaded, the extraction cells are then sealed automatically, and, at the push of a button, six samples are extracted - no error-prone sealing, no time-consuming programming.

The SpeedExtractor’s flexibility is unique as well: Temperature range of 50 – 200 °C, pressure range of 50 – 150 bar, extraction cell size of 10 – 120ml, 60ml, 220ml, and 240ml collection vessels, and an integrated rinsing step into a separate waste container. A large selection of process parameters allows for a new standard in the number of supported applications.
