Raw Fiber Extraction System

FIWE units are suitable for the crude fiber analysis and detergent fiber extraction according to official standard methods.
Vegetables and derived products are made up of substances belonging to different categories
Carbohydrates, proteins, fats, mineral salts
A non-digestible component consisting of polymers (lignin, cellulose, hemicellulose, pectin) called “fiber”
Nutritional importance for analysis
Too much fiber can cause digestive problems
Low fiber intake creates irregularities in the functioning of the digestive tract
Authorities of almost all countries require manufacturers of food & feed products to declare the fiber content as part of the nutritional table
Weende Method
The oldest analytical procedure still in use today, in which fiber concentration is measured as crude fiber (CF)
Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF) Method
A method developed by Van Soest, being now the most common measure of fiber used for animal feed analysis

FIWE3 Raw Fiber Extraction System - 3 / 6 place

A semi-automated system for determination of Crude and Detergent fibre and related parameters in accordance with Weende, van Soest and other recognized methods. Offers high throughput, simplified handling, high accuracy and precision for a wide range of samples.

Cold Extractor - COEX

COEX perform a reliable raw fiber determination test, the sample must have a low fat content (<1%). For those samples that exceed this value, preliminary fat extraction is required using acetone, hexane or petroleum. The COEX performs rapid fat extraction directly in the same glass crucibles that are used by the FIWE 3 and FIWE 6. A great benefit as the user can start raw fiber extraction immediately after completing fat extraction.

Dietary Fiber Extractor - GDE

Dietary fiber includes cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin, pectin, rubbers and waxes. For determining dietary fiber by way of digestion with thermostable enzymes in foods and animal feeds. AOAC (official methods of analysis) proposes enzymatic method 985.29.

Dietary Fiber Extractor - Filtration Unit CSF6

The CSF 6 filtration unit carries out the final filtration and washing phase foreseen by the enzymatic method for dietary fiber determination. The CSF 6 used in combination with the GDE is suitable for the determination of total dietary fiber and reduces the time required compared to manual procedures considerably.
