scrubber 2501

Scrubber 2501

Improve safety and the working environment by connecting a fully-automated scrubber to your digestion. The scrubber is used in the digestion step and neutralises all corrosive fumes. The scrubber can replace the water aspirator for efficient fume removal and uses less water than the water aspirator as it is not connected directly to a water supply tap. When the Scrubber 2501 is connected to the Tecator Line Digestor Lift or Rack system the program will fully control the function including switching from high to low aspiration settings.

 

 

SR 210 Scrubber

The SR 210 Scrubber is a manually controlled version of Scrubber 2501.

The operator has to manually start and stop the SR 210 and switch from high to low aspiration settings. All other procedures are performed automatically

 

product
em 2508 and 2520 1

EM 2508 and EM 2520 Exhaust Manifolds

Exhaust manifolds designed for each digestion unit facilitate fume removal and containment and are strongly recommended for use with all digestion procedures. The exhaust must be connected to either a water aspirator or a scrubber. We strongly recommend the use of both exhaust systems and fume cupboards for these operations. This is simply Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) and avoids conflict with local Health & Safety (H&S) requirements.

 

RH 2508 and RH 2520 Reflux Heads

When a digestion unit is used for reflux chemistries, such as chemical oxygen demand (COD), a reflux head connected to a suitable cold water supply should be used instead of the exhaust manifold. FOSS Reflux Heads are conveniently mounted in handling racks which match the tube rack in the digestor. The ball jointed condensers are designed for use with ball jointed digestion tubes. The reflux heads are compatible with TecatorTM  Line Digestors with Lift, Tecator Line Digestors with Rack and Labtec  Line Digestors
