FoodALYT D 5 + Steam Distillation Units

The allrounder in sample preparation: the FoodALYT D 5 + steam distillation unit. With these devices, proteins, nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, volatile acids, ethanol, formaldehyde etc. can be measured in different samples. A typical field of application is the treatment of subsequent Kjeldahl digestion, by distilling ammonia in an acid receiver. Furthermore, volatile preservatives in canned fish or meat salads are distilled to subsequently carry out a photometric determination. Also steam distillation is used to separate alcohols in spirits (e. g. egg or cream liqueurs) for later quantitative analysis.

The extra versatility of the new FoodALYT D 5 + is completed by its documentation and analysis functions, as well as by the option of centralised and decentralised data storage, e. g. on a server or USB stick.

With FoodALYT we provide experienced and practicable systems - made in Germany - with a balanced cost-benefit ratio. All products are CE conform and certified.
