    The FT 121 Fibertec™ Cold Extraction Unit

    In addition we offer the FT 121 Cold Extraction Unit. It can be used in combination with the FT 122 for de-fatting samples and extraction at ambient temperatures and solvent dehydration of fibre residues. It can also be used in connection with the fully automated Fibertec 8000.

    Crucible system

    Both units, FT 121 and FT 122 Fibertec™, are adapted to the same crucible system that permits the sample, whenever required, to be dried and weighed between extractions. In the system the samples are handled in specially designed filter crucibles, which are used both as an integral part of an extraction assembly during extraction, rinsing and filtering, and as a sample vessel during the weighing, drying and ashing steps.

The Fibertec™ series

The Fibertec™ series consists of three models: the Fibertec™ 8000 and FT 122 Fibertec™ with different levels of automation.

Global Standard for the Determination of ADF and Lignin

Understanding detergent fibre as an indicator of digestibility. For a number of years, livestock nutritionists have been using ADF and NDF as indicators of dietary energy and intake, especially for ruminant rations. This article discusses why these fibre fractions have replaced crude fibre ration formulations in many parts of the world.
