Characteristics and Application of Cellulose Extraction Thimble

Hawach cellulose extraction thimble is commonly known as Soxhlet extraction thimble or paper extraction thimble. It is made of high-quality cellulose long fibers and cotton linter with highly innovative technology.


One of the most prominent features of the cellulose extraction thimble is its outstanding mechanical strength and retention ability. It could undertake temperature up to 100 degrees. Also, its uniform and consistent pore size guarantee high throughout. It is suitable for a wide range of applications with most Soxhlet extraction systems, solvent extraction, or other similar extraction applications. Undoubtedly, there are various sizes and wall thicknesses of the thimbles available provided for customers’ selection.


The cellulose extraction thimble is commonly used as a safe, convenient, and efficient extraction tool for solid and semi-solid materials. It can hold solid samples that are to be leached and placed in a clean environment with a sufficient amount of solvent (usually organic solvent).

In this way, the leachable components in the sample can be extracted by being dissolved in the solvent samples in advance. In particular, it holds an important position in the food industry for the determination of fat and pesticide residues.
