Crude Fiber Apparatus is used in the determination of crude fiber in feed, food and other agricultural products. The Apparatus is a reflux condenser designed to operate with speed and accuracy. This apparatus is widely used by state, federal and industrial control labs and is listed by the AOAC. The procedure involves subjecting a sample to the simulated action of the digestion system. Samples are boiled in acid and washed and then boiled in alkalis and washed again. Remaining solids are isolated and termed insoluble fiber or crude fiber — the indigestible parts of agricultural products such as cellulose and other materials.
Frames are constructed of anodized aluminum mounted on a Colorlith base. Features include: six 350 watt heaters operated by six individual infinite-control knobs with variable input from 20-100% capacity and pilot lights for each heater; six Type 304 stainless steel condensers with inverted cone bases. Twelve tall-form, straight-sided 600mL borosilicate glass beakers are provided.
Cat.No. 1195-3000100 is listed in AOAC methods. Features: 3/8" IPS control valve for connection to cold water supply; 3/8" IPS water outlet for connection to an open drain line of at least 1/2" IPS; and on/off switch. Requires power cord and plug (not included).
Cat.No. 1195-3000200 is a reflux condenser designed to operate with speed and accuracy. Comes fully assembled.
