Soxhlet Extraction Apparatus, Jumbo

Item #: CG-1373

Normal Availability: 1-3 business days

Product Description

These units make tasks such as fullerene soot or essential oil extraction much, much easier! This Jumbo Soxhlet extraction apparatus is equipped with a glass flange at the top of the extractor that is formed with a groove in the flat portion of the mating surface to accept a Teflon®-covered silicone o-ring, permitting grease-free assembly. The adapter between the condenser and extractor has a top outer joint and a glass flange which attaches to the extractor body with a CG-141 stainless steel clamp.

This complete apparatus consists of a condenser, extractor, round bottom flask, adapter, Teflon® covered O-ring and clamp. Teflon® sleeves, heating mantles, and temperature controls must be ordered separately, of course. Glass thimbles are NOT part of the complete unit - these are special order, non-returnable items that are built on demand. The glass thimbles are similar to item # CG-1372 but have an extra coarse porosity frit. We are unaware of a commercial source for paper or cellulose thimbles sized for these units; we generally recommend that our customers (even if using a thimble) construct what is basically an elongated tea bag for use with this product. This will permit retention of fine material but reduce solvent holdup during the rapid draining part of the extraction cycle.

These jumbo systems are available with extractor capacities of 500, 1500, and 5000 mL.
