This refurbished Gerhardt Hydrotherm system out of 2017 offers a fully automated acid hydrolysis in 90 minutes. It was purchased recently from a food laboratory in the Netherlands and has been fully refurbished by our technical department. It is in an excellent state and will be delivered as an operational system, including software and PC and if requested installation. The newprice for such a system is approximately €55000.
Time-consuming fat determination according to Weibull-Stoldt is a standard quality assurance procedure in the food industry. The hands-on time of your lab staff can be reduced by up to 80% with this only fully automated hydrolysis system for standard fat determination. 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. Six samples can be digested simultaneously. There are three independently controllable
modules, each with two hydrolysis units, available for this. The apparatus operates independently and completely automatically. It has been efficiently tested in continuous operation (36 samples per day). HYDROTHERM meters the hydrochloric acid into the sample beaker, hydrolyses the sample in boiling hydrochloric acid and performs the complex filtration with all rinse operations completely automatically – for as long until all fat contents are transferred and the filter has been washed to pH-neutral. Sensors permanently monitor the process and abort it in the event of faults.
- Model: Gerhardt Hydrotherm HT-V2.0
- Process runs automatically. The presence of laboratory personnel during this is not
required. Up to 80 % cost savings per sample.
- Process runs in a closed system. There is no contact with hot liquids and acid fumes.
The apparatus reacts automatically in the event of faults.
- Process is software-controlled, checked and exactly documented. Unintended
deviations from the method and inaccuracies in the hydrolysis process are ruled out.
- The apparatus also processes very inhomogeneous sample matrices and large
sample weights as well as samples with very low fat content.
- This refurbished Gerhardt Hydrotherm system is preconfigured and ready to use immediately. Numerous
parameters can be individually defined.
