For the majority of food and feed products, the fats are chemically bonded with other components. For determination of the total fat of these samples, preliminary hydrolysis followed by filtration and washing is essential in order to free the fat molecules ready for extraction.
The analysis with HU 6 complies with official regulations for the declaration of the total fat content of food and feed samples such as meat, cheese, seafood, chocolate, cereal flours, etc.
The HU 6 works in perfect combination with the SER 158 automatic solvent extractor and the SER 148 semi-automatic solvent extractor. The crucible containing the hydrolyzed sample perfectly fits inside VELP Extractors thanks to the crucible holder accessories.
