Fully automatic Kjeldahl Analyzer (distillation unit with integrated colorimetric titrator),for your analyses concerning different applications such as determining ammoniacal nitrogen, protein determination, nitrogen content (Kjeldahl or direct alkaline distillation),nitric nitrogen (after reduction/Devarda),phenols, volatile acids, cyanides and alcohol content.


The completely automatic Kjeldahl distillation and titration system offers great performance and the maximum in terms of safety for the user.

Automatic addition of all the reagents involved (sodium hydroxide, water, boric acid, titrant solution) with low level warning simplifies the routine activity whilst the possibility to set the steam output from 10% to 100% enlarges the application range of UDK 159. Automatically the unit will perform distillation and titration.

The possibility to set the steam output from 10% to 100% makes the instrument highly recommended for a wide range of applications, including the most specific, which require special parameters. UDK 169 is ideal for reliable determination of ammoniacal nitrogen, protein nitrogen (Kjeldahl),nitric nitrogen (after reduction/devarda),phenols, volatile acids, cyanides and alcohol content.

At the end of the analysis, all the residues can be aspirated automatically, both for distillation and titration.
    Fully Automated Analysis

VELP Scientifica has developed and patented the innovative titanium condenser able to ensure high performance and considerable water savings (from 0.5 l/min at 15 °C - 1 l/min at 30 °C) with minimal maintenance.

The titanium condenser ensures that distillate temperature always remains below the safe threshold value (35 °C),as indicated in the Kjeldahl method, without nitrogen loss.


     Exclusive Titanium Condenser


The steam generator used by UDK Kjeldahl distillation units offers unique performance, being a patented solution.

A thermostat ensures the correct functioning of the steam generator, a safety thermostat eliminates risks for the operator and guarantee safe working conditions.

The high level of precision and accuracy ensures correct and detailed results without any leaks even after intensive use.
 
  • Rapid (p)re-heating time
  • Total safety: no internal pressure
  • Low thermal dispersion
  • Great repeatability
  • High performance and resistance
  • Maintenance-free
  • Safety-thermostat
  • Works with deionized water
     Patented Steam Generator

Improved communication leads to improved efficiency. The display enables the operator to set all the parameters for a fully automatic control of the distillation and titration processes.

The UDK 159 distiller is a Kjeldahl automatic distiller equipped with a control panel with 6'' high resolution colour touch-screen graphic display and easy to use multitasking software that guides the operator step by step through menus and sub-menus and allows to program in an easy and intuitive way all the parameters including the volumes of reagents such as sodium hydroxide, water, boric acid and the regulation of steam production to carry out distillations and titrations in automatic mode. 
 
  • Excellent usability
  • Flexible, versatile and multi-language
  • Intuitive data entry and programming
  • Unlimited library with all the analyses
  • Data export in .xls, .txt, .csv (according to LIMS) also on USB key
  • Direct access to the archive from remote PC in real time without any download

     Multitasking Software


The automatic Kjeldahl analyzer UDK 159 is the top of the range model offering the ultimate in capabilities including colorimetric titration, as recommended by the AOAC.

The UDK 169 colorimetric titration is based on precise chemical reactions with indicators.  VELP integrated titrator works by dosing an acidic titrant solution to the boric acid containing the ammonia distilled from the sample. This titration process results in a color change that is evaluated by the system.

  •  calibration-free
  • maintenance-free
  • not sensitive to volume and external light
  • automated, for maximum simplicity and security

UDK 159, the most reliable titration system in the Kjeldahl analysis!
