Hydrotherm | Automated Acid Hydrolysis

Gerhardt has delivered the next generation of acid hydrolysis equipment. Hydrotherm is the first fully-automated closed system, that is clean, safe, software-controlled, and standardized.

Compact and easy-to-use, Hydrotherm processes up to 6 samples simultaneously and up to 36 samples per day. Three independently controllable modules each house 2 hydrolysis units. The instrument measures hydrochloric acid (HCl) into the sample beaker, hydrolyses the sample in the hydrochloric acid, and performs the complex filtration with all rinse operations automatically until all fat contents are transferred and the filter has been washed to pH-neutral.
