Two Major Uses of Extraction Thimble
The extraction thimble provided by Hawach Scientific is of good filtration performance, which is characterized by high chemical purity, good liquid absorption, and a perfect retention rate. Hawach is available in many kinds and wide applications for extraction thimbles, especially for glass fiber type and cellulose type of extraction thimbles.
Both of them are excellent in consist of wall thickness, extraordinary mechanical strength, and retention ability. Additionally, both of them provide uniform high porosity which guarantees a fast flow-through the operation.
Summary of Extraction Thimble
Extraction thimbles available by Hawach Scientific are of a variety of dimensions to fit most extraction units. Hawach extraction thimble is either manufactured with high-purity borosilicate glass fibers or high alpha cellulose, which is commonly used in Soxhlet extractors for safe and efficient solid and semi-solid material extraction.
The smooth interior surface and consistent wall thickness are easy to clean and maintain. All products are manufactured in a clean environment to avoid contamination or pollution from the source. Purify and accuracy of analytical results from reliable and strict control systems and production lines. And the high fitting accuracy is fit for all Hawach’s extraction systems.
The extraction thimble is mainly used to place the substance to be extracted in a container of the glass below, and then the solution is repeatedly soaked to extract the desired components from the material (for example, extracting pesticide residues from the pepper), the experimental procedure is called Soxhlet extraction.
Another important function of the extraction thimble is to collect particles such as smog and haze in the atmosphere and is used in conjunction with a smog and haze collection device.
One way to extract a compound from a solid substance is to infiltrate the solid with a solvent for a long period of time to leach the desired substance, that is, a long-term leaching method. It takes a long time with low efficiency.
Soxhlet extractor, also known as at extractor is frequently used in the lab, which is composed of three parts: the extraction bottle, the extraction tube, and the condenser. On both sides of the extraction tube, there are siphon tubes and connecting tubes, and the joints of each part should be sealed tightly.
It utilizes solvent reflux and siphoning principles to continuously extract solid materials from pure solvents, which saves solvent and improve extraction efficiency. The filter cartridge is mainly used to place the substance to be extracted in a container of the glass below, and then the solution is repeatedly soaked to extract the desired components from the material.
2.Haze and fog collection
Another important function of the filter cartridge is to collect particles such as haze and fog in the atmosphere. It is used in conjunction with a smog collection device.
