Oils, Fuels and Fats

BioFuels and OilsWorking with oils, fuels and fats can be difficult.  Whether extracting & recovering additives, evaluating lipid content of foods, characterising reclaimed cooking oils before reprocessing or conversion to biofuels, or investigating drillling test samples - oils can be difficult to dry in turn leading to problems with the analytical instrumentation.  
Extraction and separation techniques, be they basic dialysis, Dionex ASE or Counter Current Chromatography, all normally present the sample in a solution of organic solvent.  The sample typcially must be dried or concentrated before analysis.  Drying all the solvent can be difficult without using very high temperatures or other harsh regimens which may lead to loss of more volatile fractions within the oil.  For many such applications, researchers have found that the EZ-2 and the Rocket Evaporator have delivered significant enhancement to their recovery and results.  When working with larger solvent volumes, additional benefit is gained by way of  productivity savings when used with SampleGenie which enables large volumes to be concentrated or dried directly into a small vial.
