Automated Solvent Extraction System EDGE

The EDGE® is an automated extraction system that’s faster than Soxhlet, more automated than QuEChERS, and simpler than other solvent extraction systems. Extract a wide range of samples and sizes at least 3 times faster than other pressurized fluid extractors. This includes filtering, cooling.

 

Automated Extraction Process

Touch “start” to begin the automated process.


1. Select a Method
After a rack of Q-Cups containing samples are loaded into the EDGE, simply select the proper method, program the number of samples, and hit “Start”.

2. Autosampler Loads Sample
The Q-Cup is automatically loaded into the chamber by the autosampler. The pressure cap then creates a pressurized seal on the top of the Q-Cup.

3. Matrix is Extracted
Solvent is first added through the bottom to fill the gap between the chamber and Q-Cup, this aids in heat transfer. Then, solvent is added through the top of the Q-Cup to wet the sample.

As the chamber walls are heated, the pressure in the gap increases. This overcomes the pressure inside the Q-Cup, forcing the solvent to disperse into the sample.

4. Extract is Collected
Once the sample reaches temperature, the solvent is dispended through the Q-Disc, the cooling coil, and into a collection vial.
