Fully Automatic Crude and Detergent Fiber

Fully Automatic Crude and Detergent Fiber

Accurate and reproducible results are what a scientist of the animal feed industry needs for fiber determinations to meet the requirements of product labeling and quality control.


The FIWE Advance automates digestion, washing and filtration steps guaranteeing consistency for Crude Fiber with Weende Method and Detergent Fiber for fiber fraction with Van Soest Method NDF, ADF and ADL. 

Compliance and consistency

Compliance and consistency

FIWE Advance produces accurate results that always comply with official ISO and AOAC methods for both Crude Fiber and Detergent Fiber.

In addition, the FIWE Advance method using crucibles avoids the loss of fibre due to the transfer of the sample which remains in the crucible for the duration of the analytical procedure

The sample in fact remains inside the crucibles during the extraction, digestion, washing and filtration phases, and also during weighing and finally for drying and ashing eliminating the risks of error.

FIWE Advance saves you valuable time by reducing costs and improving your lab's productivity.

FIWE Advance requires only 2 minutes of operator time compared to more than 50 minutes/operator of a semi-automatic solution.

You will no longer need to preheat and pour chemicals into the columns, manage the temperature for proper boiling, or make sure the filtration is successful.

With FIWE Advance all these operations are automatic and thanks to the cloud connection you are always informed with immediate notifications.


Smart and easy-to-use

Smart and easy-to-use

With FIWE Advance, fiber analysis becomes easy and convenient for your laboratory. The 7-inch touchscreen display and the User Interface developed by VELP make operations simple and smart.

The FIWE Advance comes with pre-installed methods developed by VELP in accordance with official methods. You can create custom methods and select your favorites for maximum convenience and to speed-up your daily work.

Check technical sheets with answers to most frequently asked questions
When is a preliminary fat extraction with COEX necessary?
When the fatty matter content is between 5% and 10% extraction with COEX is recommended, but if it is more than 10% it is mandatory.
How to choose the correct glass crucible?

VELP Glass crucibles are made to perfectly fit the COEX and FIWE/FIWE Advance. In order to prevent sample loss during all the phases of the analysis, VELP recommends, as the official methods do, using P2 porosity crucibles.

Durability is strictly tied to:
- proper temperature management during ashing
- a correct cleaning procedure: chemical and mechanical cleaning

Which are the main advantages of crucible technology?
The crucible technology is fully adherent to official standards (ISO and AOAC). Fiber residues stay in crucibles during all steps of the analysis, eliminating the risk of errors and ensuring consistent results.
