Discover the 6 reasons why choosing the new VELP UDK Distillation Units for your Kjeldahl nitrogen analysis, TKN, proteins, ammoniacal nitrogen, nitric nitrogen (Devarda), TVBN, sulfites, phenols, volatile acids, cyanides, and alcohol content.
1. Resistance and reliability with the exclusive VELP technologies
A major step forward in reliability and durability, all the internal elements of the new UDK Distillers have been subjected to development, improving their performance.
All the models of the new UDK Series feature the VELP patented Titanium Condenser designed for the most efficient thermal exchange and low water consumption.
The exclusive and brand-new Technopolymer Splash Head is designed for premium resistance and maximized uptime as it can withstand up to 10,000 analyses before being serviced.
2. A new and intuitive interface ensuring ease-of-use and data management at its best
The new UDK Distillers, starting with UDK 139, feature a new smart user interface and easy-to-use software that guide the operator step-by-step and provide fast feedback when setting the parameters and checking the analysis results.
Grant access to instruments and data only to specific people in your organization with the user management feature, in compliance with GLP and ISO.
3. Excellent precision and accuracy
The UDK Series technology ensures maximum application versatility providing unmatched accuracy and precision even for challenging samples containing a low amount of Nitrogen. With a limit of detection (LOD) of 0.015 mgN
and a limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.04 mgN
the UDK Series is your perfect match!
The automatic Kjeldahl analyzer UDK 159 and 169 are supplied with an integrated colorimetric titrator
that guarantees premium accuracy, precision, and a long lifespan.
- Completely automatic procedure
- Real-time graph displayed on the instrument to monitor the titration
4. Compliance to 21 CFR part 11
The Kjeldahl analysis is a primary method for the determination of Nitrogen in Quality Control, especially in pharmaceutical laboratories.
Most companies are required to comply with Regulations such as the FDA's Code of Federal Regulations Title 21 Part 11 that defines the requirements for using electronic records and electronic signatures on computerized systems.
The integrity, reliability, and trustworthiness of electronic records must be fulfilled as for 21 CFR Part 11 basic requirements.
VELP new UDK 159 and 169 guarantee full compliance to 21 CFR part 11 thanks to the optional software package upgrade.
