ANKOMXT10 Extractor technology delivers a low cost
option for Soxhlet type extractons. The ANKOMXT10
Extractor uses ANKOM Filter Bag Technology (FBT) to increase sample
throughput while maintaining sample integrity.
The ANKOMXT10 Extractor utilizes technology developed
by ANKOM to reduce extraction times for all sample types using
traditional solvents. Extraction times normally will not exceed thirty
Like our higher volume XT20 the analysis of fat in the ANKOMXT10
Extractor is based on the solublization properties of traditional
solvents. The ANKOMXT10 Extractor accelerates the
process by performing the extraction under pressure at elevated
temperatures with reflux action.
The ANKOMXT10 Extractor utilizes batch processing for
the extraction of up to ten samples at a time. With the capability of
more than 100 samples per day, throughput is dramatically increased. The
secret to the process is the encapsulation and quantitative recovery of
each sample in a filter bag. The filter media is a specially made
laminate, ultrasonically welded, capable of retaining particles less
than one micron in size. All samples are submerged in heated solvent
facilitating extraction from the sample matrix. The integrity of the
sample is preserved by the inability of particles to escape
encapsulation. Results are determined by difference
