Pressurized Solvent Extractor

BUCHI – Speed Extractor E-916 / E-914

The Speed Extractor E-916 / E-914 is an automated instrument for parallel extraction of primarily organic compounds from a variety of solid or semi-solid matrices. Conventional methodologies (e.g. like Soxhlet extraction) are accelerated by using a solvent at elevated temperatures and pressures. The parallel concept of Speed Extractor allows for simultaneous extraction of six samples in one run. A variety of different extract collection options with great synergy to the MultivaporTM and Syncore® Analyst for parallel evaporation and concentration maximizes productivity and streamlines


Unrivaled throughput

  • 6 times faster than other PSE instruments thanks to parallel extraction concept
  • Extract up to 96 samples in an 8 hour shift
  • Accelerate the extraction process and facilitate final results within one working day
  • Reduce number of replicates due to identical extraction conditions for up to 6 samples

Ease of operation

  • Unique design of extraction cells allows for ease of sample loading and cell assembly
  • High level of automation saves time-consuming preparation and increases safety
  • Quick, fail-safe and reproducible operation due to assembly of only 4 sample cell parts
  • The automated sealing eliminates sources of error and guaranties safety standard

Low running costs

  • Complementary workflow and synergy with parallel evaporation and concentration
  • Collection vessels with appendix make extract transfer obsolete
  • Reduced solvent consumption and minimal need for consumables give lower running costs
  • Save energy and costs with ECO mode for automated heater control
