ANKOM XT15 Extractor

The ANKOMXT15 Extractor delivers a highly automated system for Soxhlet type extractions. The XT15 accelerates the process by performing the extraction under pressure at elevated temperatures. Capable of up to 15 extractions at a time and a total daily volume
of more than 150 samples, throughput is dramatically increased. Solvent recovery and recycling is done automatically at a rate of around 97% or greater. Available in 120V and 220V configurations.

The ANKOMXT15 Extractor provides an Official Procedure for efficient and economical solvent extractions.The ANKOMXT15 Extractor has been subjected to rigorous testing over a broad range of sample types. Fat ranges from 0% to 100% have been determined using this procedure.

The XT15’s low cost provides an affordable high-volume solution. Batch processing allows for the extraction of up to 15 samples at a time and is capable of up to 150 samples per day. Also 90°C temperatures accelerate extraction kinetics, reducing most extraction times to under 40 minutes.  If using solvents such as diethyl ether please ask about seal upgrades.  There is no need to replace seals when using Petroleum Ether or Hexane.

Filter bags serve to simplify handling and enable batch processing. The XT15’s Automatic Solvent Recycling and Activated Charcoal Filter elminates the need for a vent hood and reduces costs.

Warranty: 02 (Two) years from the date of Successfully completion of Supply.
