Fully automated acid hydrolysis system. Patented HydroCap™ – single use filter system. Reduced foot print and batch handling of 12 samples.
The HydrotecTM 8000 total fat solution, consisting of an extraction unit, a hydrolysis unit and a FOSS Hydrocap single filter system, allows you to perform total fat analysis in one integrated procedure.
Unique patented filter system
The unique, patented HydrocapTM filter avoids sample transfer and reduces the risk of human error. Laboratory costs are dramatically reduced and higher sample throughput improves cost effectiveness.
Improving throughput at a lower cost
Simplified operation reduces the potential for human error in total fat analysis while reducing costs and improving overall sample throughput.
Reducing risk in total fat analysis
Chemicals are added and removed by pump, improving safety and reducing the risk of error. For total fat analysis, Hydrotec 8000 can be used together with a Soxtec 8000 or ST255 Soxtec extraction unit and FOSS HydroCap single filter that works across both units.

FOSS creates end-to-end solutions that secure and improve food quality. From raw material to finished product. Our analysis instruments refine measurements into information management that enables businesses to run intelligent data-driven productions with less waste and bigger yields. Controlling cost and quality across all sectors and value chains, we help food and agricultural producers limit the number of human errors, scale their business faster and reduce manual labor as well as labor costs. We call it analytics beyond measure.
We cover these food and agricultural industries: Dairy, Feed and Forage, Grain, Flour Milling & Oilseed Processing, Laboratories, Meat, Raw Milk Testing and Wine.
Over the last 60 years, we have made it our business to define the standard of analytical solutions for the food and agricultural industry. We pioneered advanced analysis for the challenging production environments in the 1960’s, and we were the first to integrate chemical composition analysis in process lines. Now our resolve and ambition have also made us the international benchmark in the field of chemometrics and real time analytics.
