Thermal homogeneity and precision
The DK 6 Series digestion unit with aluminium heating block ensures high thermal homogeneity heating up to 450 °C. The temperature of the block is constantly controlled by a microprocessor and is extremely stable, homogeneous and precise: 0.5°C.
The DK 6 Series guarantees accuracy and repeatability. Program your methods with digestion time and up to 4 temperature ramps through the intuitive digital display.
The DK 6 series perform batch digestion of up to 6 samples with the following test tubes dimensions:
- DK 6 250 ml tubes – Ø 42 mm
- DK 6/48 300 ml tubes – Ø 48 mm
Compact design and maintenance free
DK 6 digestion units have very compact dimensions aimed to reduce the footprint and save space in your lab. The design of the heating block of VELP digestion unit has been studied in order to reduce space under the fume hood.
The DK Series aluminum heating block does not require maintenance. It needs to be combined with a support system, sample rack (with heat shields), suction cap and test tubes (required accessories).
COD digestion with DK 6
DK 6 is a versatile digester suitable for Kjeldahl N/Protein applications and Chemical Oxygen Demand in the environmental industry.
In order to use the DK 6 for COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand) is necessary to configure it by adding a different support system able to manage all the glass required for the COD analysis for processing 6 samples simultaneously.
Fume Neutralization System
For application where the digestion process produces fumes, acid gases or corrosive substances, the below specific accessories are strongly recommended:
- JP Pump aspirates noxious fumes
- SMS Scrubber neutralizes all the fumes
