Model                                  : FIBERTEC 2010
Specification   :

Click to ViewThe FOSS FIBERTEC 2010 is a semi-automated system for determination of crude fibre. Six samples can be processed simultaneously.

  Working Principles
Click to ViewCrude fibre refers to the residue of a feed/ tissue that is insoluble after successive boiling with dilute acid (1.25% H2SO4) and alkali (1.25 % NaOH). The instrument determines fibre content according to Weende method, using externally preheated reagents. Single or sequential extractions including boiling, rinsing and filtration are performed in Gooch crucibles. After rinsing and predrying, the crucibles are transferred to muffle furnace for ashing at 600 ºC. The quantity of crude fibre is estimated by difference in weight.

  User Instructions
Applications: Analysis of crude fibre content of fish tissues, raw materials and finished products in feeds Sample size: Feed and feed ingredients - 250 g; Other samples – 100 g in air tight plastic container; Liquid material - 250 ml in leak proof container along with clear labels and marks over each sample.
