BUCHI’s new steam distillation units offer tailor-made solutions
BÜCHI Labortechnik AG has launched two new product lines for steam distillation with innovative modular features that provide the greatest flexibility in the determination of analytes. The newly developed instrument is available as BUCHI Kjel Line or Dist Line with three different performance levels. The Kjel line is optimized for Kjeldahl applications for the determination of nitrogen and protein and offers the highest precision while saving time and resources. The Dist range is designed to cover a wide range of volatile steam analytes providing maximum flexibility and convenience.
The new BUCHI Kjel range provides the most accurate and reproducible nitrogen and protein determinations through advanced integrated sensor technology. Communication with peripherals such as the cooling water valve, tank level sensors, safety door sensors and an innovative level sensor provide exceptional user protection and a new level of efficiency. In the interest of environmental safety, BUCHI has also developed a unique reaction detection sensor, which saves up to 30% of reagent consumption.
The BUCHI Dist range sets new standards in the versatile determination of volatile vapor analytes in samples from the beverage and food industries, as well as chemical, environmental and testing laboratories. The systems can determine several analytes such as alcohol, sulfite, volatile acids, cyanide, essential oils, phenol number, vicinal diketones, formaldehyde and nitrogen. The instruments allow more multitasking possibilities, faster method development and can be easily upgraded to a tailor-made solution, tailored to individual customer needs.
“Steam distillation is a standard sample preparation step for a wide variety of analytes, but since each analyte has different requirements, providing a tailor-made solution is a real challenge,” said Vahé Iplikci, BU Food & Feed director at BUCHI. “We have drawn on more than 50 years of experience in steam distillation to develop these two new product lines designed to meet multiple customer needs, such as modular flexibility, precise and reliable results with procedures environmentally friendly and safe for the operator and the environment. . “
The new steam distillation units join BUCHI’s existing portfolio for immediate analysis complete with extraction and NIR solutions. The company’s solutions include innovative products for the entire workflow, personalized support, easy-to-use data management and professional maintenance. The company aims to satisfy its growing global customer base by continuing to understand specific demands and designing solutions that fully meet and exceed high customer expectations.
