The SER 158 Automatic Solvent Extractor provides reliable and accurate results improving extraction process compared to traditional Soxhlet method (five times faster). The determination of extractable matter is performed with a solid-liquid extraction process that removes soluble components from solids using a liquid solvent. The SER 158 guarantees excellent reproducibility and compliance of the results to the major standards. LED guidance for active positions helps to monitor and supervise the whole process.

The SER 158 Automatic Solvent Extractor configuration is fully scalable. In addition to the first unit equipped with the new powerful ControlPad, your investment is protected by seamlessly allowing the increase of connected units according to the throughput requirements. A single ControlPad is able to control up to 4 SER 158 independent with a maximum of 24 active positions processing up to 168 samples/day (or 42 samples/day/unit).

The SER 158 Automatic Solvent Extractor is equipped with a large 7 inches display extractable ControlPad with an intuitive User Interface for a powerful and smart data management and includes a multi-lingual support.
Integrated yet removable, the ControlPad can be connected with a balance for a completely new user experience.

The SER 158 Automatic Solvent Extractor safe SolventXpress™ technology allows smart solvent dispensing for solvent addition minimizing the exposure to solvents and ensuring operator safety. The unit is also hermetically sealed with a protective transparent cover and a variety of sensors to monitor and ensure a safe analysis during all the steps. SafeEnd™ feature of the SER 158 prevents extracted matter burning eliminating laboratory accidents. A wide range of accessories has been designed to assure safe sample handling for a large variety of solvent extractions applications.

The SER 158 Automatic Solvent Extractor configuration is immediately ready to address a variety of applications. Solvent extraction with the SER 158 can be performed for extractable matter determination, either in food and non-food industries (such as pulp, paper, textile, chemical etc…) and for sample preparation for environmental analysis.

The SER 158 Automatic Solvent Extractor units come with numerous accessories designed to simplify the operations. VELP extractors are supplied with extraction cups, thimbles of different sizes such small, medium and large (misure) and seals of different materials such as Viton, Butly , and Vaflon (high end solution for a wide range of solvents). Furthermore, a great number of other optional accessories complete the SER series assuring great operation versatility.

The SER 158 Automatic Solvent Extractor is designed to make analysis easy and to reduce to the minimum the duration of each step. Simply prepare the sample and start the process with one-click. VELP extraction units are equipped with high tech sensors which permit 24/7 analysis: the extractor automatically shuts down once the last analysis is finished without operator intervention. The user only need to place the sample in the SER 158, set the program on the ControlPad and walk away: “Load & Go”.

The SER 158 Automatic Solvent Extractor incorporates state-of-the-art technology to relief the user from manual operations in addition to limited resources consumption for an higher productivity. Cost reduction is obtained by a minimal usage of cooling water (1l/min), independent heaters switch on/off in addition to an extremely compact footprint to save bench space. The unique Patent pending titanium condensers ensure unparalleled performance and VELP’s technology enables more than 90% of solvent recovery reducing operational costs.
