Proven C. Gerhardt technology based on the TURBOTHERM rapid digestion unit.
Quick, even heating thanks to infrared technology.
With a flow meter and magnetic agitator at each heating point.

In accordance with DIN 38405 and DIN ISO 11262.

Available with various fittings.


  • Two versions available: 4 x 400 ml or 4 x 800 ml tubes
  • Examination of soils, sewage sludge and composts
  • Examination of wastewater, groundwater and surface water
  • Deaeration of cyanides in accordance with DIN
  • Determination of easily released cyanides
  • Sulphide determination
  • Sulphur dioxide determination in foodstuffs in accordance with the Reith-Willems method

Fast, safe and convenient

Infrared radiation ensures short heating and cooling times. The sample is heated directly – thus preventing delays in boiling.

Once the boiling process has been completed, the reflux condenser, drip tray and rack are simply mounted in the multi-level console. This is convenient and saves space.

Modern control system

The electronic time/output control enables rapid and trouble-free digestion of even difficult samples.

Up to 9 energy/time programs can be saved and retrieved. Each program offers 9 heating levels with variable times and heating output.

The currently running program can be adjusted manually at any time.
