This extractor is designed to maximize efficiency through continuous solvent displacement. As a solid/liquid extractor, a thimble is used and the sample is immersed in extracting solvent at all times for optimal efficiency. As a liquid/liquid extractor, with heavier-than extracting solvents, the thimble is removed and the three-way stopcocks are configured for bottom take-off. With lighter-than solvents, a solvent guide is added and the three-way stopcocks are configured for sidearm take-off.

- Flask, solvent guide, and secondary condenser are optional
- Manufactured from 33 expansion, low extractable borosilicate glass conforming to USP Type I and ASTM E438, Type I, Class A requirements
