Fibertec™ 8000

Fibertec™ 8000 has the lowest operator time of any fibre analysis system. Crude and detergent fibre according to the standard reference method.

FT 122 Fibertec™

The FT 122 Fibertec™ is a manual fibre determination system for simple determination of crude fibre, detergent fibre and more, according to standard reference crucible methods such as Weende, van Soest etc.

Sample type

Feed, feed ingredients, forage, pet food, grain, cereal and oil seeds.


Crude Fibre (CF), Neutral Detergent Fibre (NDF), Acid Detergent Fibre (ADF) and Acid Detergent Lignin (ADL).

Lowest operator time of any fibre analysis solution. Official reference method results with unrivalled accuracy (ISO, AOAC). Safest fibre analysis solution available.

Key features

  • No sample transfer

Samples are handled separately in standard filter crucibles which are used both as an integral part of the assembly during extraction, rinsing and filtration and as sample vessels during weighing, drying and ashing. Sample residue remains in the crucible during the whole procedure, avoiding sample transfer and associated risk of error.

  • The FT 121 Fibertec cold extraction unit

The FT 121 Fibertec™ cold extraction unit can be used in combination with the fully automated Fibertec™ 8000 for de-fatting samples and extraction at ambient temperatures and solvent dehydration of fibre residues.

  • Official reference method results

The Fibertec™ 8000 provides official method results (ISO, AOAC), with the safest fibre analysis solution available for crude fibre, ADF, ADL and NDF. Non-attended measurement of up to six samples simultaneously releases staff to do other things – it can even run overnight.

  • On-board heating and dispensing of reagents

Innovative safety features help you to raise the safety level in everyday operations. All reagents are dispensed automatically avoiding any contact with hot chemicals and their fumes. In addition, automatic heat reduction when the boiling point is reached prevents spillage. The system adds antifoam and enzymes automatically (when required).

Dimensions (W x D x H)
560 × 380 × 280 mm


An easy way to secure consistent analytical results with repeatable determination of fibre content according to Weende, van Soest and other recognised methods.

Key features

  • The FT 121 Fibertec™ Cold Extraction Unit

In addition we offer the FT 121 Cold Extraction Unit. It can be used in combination with the FT 122 for de-fatting samples and extraction at ambient temperatures and solvent dehydration of fibre residues. It can also be used in connection with the fully automated Fibertec 8000.

  • Batch handling tools

Batch handling tools improve operator safety when handling hot crucibles, processing up to 6 samples at a time.

  • Crucible system

Both units, FT 121 and FT 122 Fibertec™, are adapted to the same crucible system that permits the sample, whenever required, to be dried and weighed between extractions. In the system the samples are handled in specially designed filter crucibles, which are used both as an integral part of an extraction assembly during extraction, rinsing and filtering, and as a sample vessel during the weighing, drying and ashing steps.

Foss Analytical

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.
