Manual fibre determination with low cost and high effeciency
The FC 221 and FC 223 FiberCap™ are specifically designed to provide a low cost, high capacity solution for fiber determination in accordance with Weende van Soest and other recognized methods. Defatting, boiling, rinsing and filtration are performed under reproducible and controlled conditions.
The capsule is a polypropylene container with a snap on lid. Once sealed, there is no sample transfer. The different chemical properties of the membranes used in the capsule and the lid ensures free flow of reagent through the FiberCap during analysis. This feature guarantees repeatable conditions for all sample types, even high starch samples can easily be determined. Filtration and washing is done in seconds for all sample types.
Two versions of capsules are available, having different mesh size, offers the possibility to match results either with the filter paper method or the crucible method.
Parameters: Crude Fibre (CF), Neutral Detergent Fibre (NDF), Acid Detergent Fibre (ADF) and Acid Detergent Lignin (ADL)
Sample types: Raw materials and finished products in Feed and Agriculture
Method/principle of analysis
With Fibertec, single or sequential extractions including boiling, use of internally preheated reagents, rinsing and filtration are performed batch wise under reproducible and controlled conditions.
