Ahlstrom-Munksjö 7100: Cellulose thimbles
Cellulose thimbles are high quality sample reservoirs for quality control, research, and analytical applications where solvent extraction of solids and semi-solids must be carried out. The use of a Soxhlet extractor provides a safe method of extraction with toxic and other noxious solvents.
Ahlstrom-Munksjö cellulose extraction thimbles are recommended for applications including: determination of fats in food, analysis of lacquer and binder in paints, vitamin A and carotene extractions, extraction of organic compounds from reaction mixtures, polymer determination in polymer industry, quality management of components used in pharmaceutical formulations. Walls of cellulose thimbles are approximately 1.5 mm thick and have been found to perform satisfactorily in application requiring either a single or double wall thickness.
