Kjeldatherm Digestion Systems KB8S with TR Controller
Turbotherm TT125 Infra-Red Digestion System
Traditionally soils, sediments, sludges, foods and other materials have been digested using Sulphuric acid in large round-bottomed flasks for Kjeldahl or Phosphate analysis. These were heated on heating mantles and notoriously took up a lot of room in the fume cupboard.
In order to maximise the number of digestions in a given space, systems were designed to use tall straight digestion tubes in racks on a rectangular Aluminium hotplate - Kjeldatherm.
Further developments on heating led to the development of infrared heaters for faster heat up of the samples - Turbotherm. A greater range of tube sizes can be accommodated, however the system relies on the heater being in close proximity to the digestion tube and therefore limits the number of tubes in a system.
Gerhardt is unique in being able to offer all three solutions for digestion. For more information on Gerhardt Traditional digestion systems – Click here.
