Features and Applications of Cellulose Extraction Thimbles
Cellulose extraction thimbles are widely used in Soxhlet extractors. Soxhlet extraction is a widely used technology to analyze lipids or pesticides in food and soil materials and others.
Soxhlet extraction is the continuous extraction of the required components in the solid mixture by using the principle of solvent reflux and siphon. When the liquid level of the solvent in the cellulose extraction thimbles under the backflow exceeds the siphon of the Soxhlet extractor, the solvent in the extractor barrel flows back into the round-bottom flask, which is a siphon.
Features of cellulose extraction thimbles
They are made of high quality cellulose wool with high mechanical strength and retention.
Standard casing wall thickness is approximately 1mm (particle retention 10μm).
The thickened casing wall thickness is approximately 2mm for high retention and wet strength, dry strength or special requirements (particle retention 6μm).
High-purity materials of cellulose extractive thimbles ensure the reliability and reproducibility of the analysis results.
For conventional automated extraction instruments, Hawach provides you with cellulose extractive thimbles that match the size of the instrument for automated use.
