Gerhardt VAPODEST Distillation Systems

VAPODEST 10s Kjeldahl basic model is the new basic model for the automatic rapid distillation, especially for Kjeldahl digestion solutions in Kjeldahl flasks or Kjeldatherm digestions glasses.
VAPODEST 10s is the ideal instrument for laboratories with a low sample throughput but a high demand for reliability, user-friendliness and safety.
VAPODEST 10s is an automatic distillation unit and the basic model of the well proven and tested Vapodest range, which now comprises 6 models



Versatile applications

VAPODEST watersteam - rapid distillation systems are used worldwide e.g. for the determination of nitrate, nitrite, ammonium, Kjeldahl-digestion solutions, volatile acids, sulphur dioxide, ethanol, formaldehyde, phenols as well as other compounds. The fields of application can be found in various matrices, e.g. in:

  • food
  • feed
  • luxury food (beer, vine, liqueur, spirits)
  • cosmetics
  • detergents
  • environmental samples (plants, water, soils, sewage sludge)
  • rotten material from biogas plants e.t.c.

Convincing Arguments

  • NaOH-addition using time controlled pump and/or using a push button
  • Distillation time can be pre-selected using a timer
  • Steam output can be set from 10 to 100 %
  • Simple and manual change of sample tubes
  • Lucent protective door with safety switch
  • VAPODEST 10 offers you the best price-performance relation

Automatic water steam distillation unit for the rapid distillation of Kjeldahl digestion solutions from Kjeldahl glasses250, 400, or 800 ml as well as Kjeldahl flasks 250, 500, and 750ml with wide neck opening. The steam generatorworks fully automatically and on gradula increase, is virtually service-free, with monitoring of the over temperatureas well as a time controlled pump for the automatic addition of caustic soda into the sample glass. The durationof the distillation is controlled by a timer.
