The Kjeldahl method is a reliable technique widely adopted for the determination of nitrogen/protein in various samples.
The Kjeldahl method involves as the first step of analysis the digestion of organic samples in concentrated sulfuric acid. This process converts nitrogen-containing compounds into ammonium sulfate, which is then distilled and quantified by titration. While the Kjeldahl method provides valuable insights into numerous applications, it also produces toxic gases that need to be neutralized.
To mitigate these risks, protect the personnel from exposure to harmful gases and prevent contamination of the laboratory environment, effective gas scrubbing techniques have become an integral part of Kjeldahl's analysis.
Gas scrubbers are designed to trap and neutralize hazardous gases before they are released into the atmosphere, thus enabling the laboratory to meet strict safety regulations and ensure compliance with environmental standards.
