Horizon SPE DEX® 1000XL Automated Extractor System
A fully automated, single-station extraction system, the Horizon Technology SPE-DEX® 1000XL Automated Extractor System provides maximum speed, accuracy and simplicity for extracting a wide range of "clean" and "dirty" aqueous samples for hexane extractable material (oil & grease) and non-polar material (NPM) by EPA Method 1664A/B, ISO 11349 and SM 5520G. The Horizon SPE Extractor system is ideal for facilities that process only a few samples each week. The SPE-DEX® 1000XL Automated Extraction System uses Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) technology to replace the old, labor-intensive liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) technique.
In addition to delivering accurate, more consistent results, SPE technology reduces both sample processing times and solvent use. Solvent consumption is cut by up to 90% compared to traditional liquid-liquid extraction methods. Sample run times are less than 30 minutes. The SPE-DEX® 1000XL Automated Extractor processes samples directly from the original sample bottle. It automatically delivers all solvents, regulates sample processing and disk drying times, rinses the sample bottle and collects the extract.
