    Description

    The KjelDigester is used to convert organic bound nitrogen (e.g. in proteins) in a sample into ammonium sulfate. During the digestion process, acid fumes and reaction gases may emerge and are handled by the Scrubber. The Scrubber is connected to the KjelDigester for neutralizing acid fumes and adsorbing unpleasant odors. The KjelDigester is suitable for digestion processes with concentrated boiling H2SO4 (heated up to boiling 307C) and a catalyst. It is a synchronized process of sample preparation to titration.
