Kjeldahl Distillers

DNP Series
Our Kjeldahl distillers work according to the internationally recognized Kjeldahl method, a reference procedure to analyze nitrogen and protein content in several fields of application.

Besides performing protein nitrogen analysis according to Kjeldahl or volatile acidity, you can also determine alcohol, sorbic acid, SO2, phenols, cyanide, ammonia and nitric nitrogen content.

Different models of our Kjeldahl distillers adapt to each laboratory requirements, from semiautomatic models to fully automatic, all options guaranteeing safety for the users with automatic distillation interruption on overtemperature or overpressure and fixing cooling water input if required. Furthermore, our distillers work according to standardized procedures such as AOAC, ISO, EPA and DIN. The DNP Series distillers are designed to give reliable, accurate and precise results.

Available under 2 models: DNP-1500 TS & DNP-2000 TS.

WORKING PRINCIPLE

Once the sample is digested and ready for distillation, load it into the DNP distiller and choose the required program. The equipment adds the selected reagents in the exact quantity and the analyte is separated by steam distillation. At first it is evaporated and then it condenses falling into the receiver flask. In the next step nitrogen content is accurately determined through titration and results are exported into your PC.
To save water, the steam generator and the water refrigeration circuit are only activated during distillation.
Once the distillation is completed, the residue left in the sample tube is aspired and removed.

The combination of the DNP-2000 TS distiller with the KIT-TITRA-RAY external titrator offers a unique, economic and very effective automatization of the Kjeldahl method by transferring samples, carrying out fast distillations, executing accurate analyte titrations and proper results registry in one solution.
