The 1002 Kjeltec System can be used to determine nitrogen / protein according to the Kjeldahl method. One of the main applications for the unit is the distillation of “Kjeldahl digests” where the alkali is conveniently added via a built in dispensing system. The distillate is collected in a Receiver flask for subsequent titration.

Description The Kjeldahl method is an analytical method for the quantitative determination of nitrogen in chemical substances. This is a standard method for estimating the protein content in foods, feed, beverages, and many other samples. The Kjeldahl method involves three main steps, i.e. digestion of organic nitrogen, the distillation of ammonia and titrations to determine nitrogen content in samples. The Kjeldahl method is also used to measure nitrogen in organic and inorganic samples in the chemical industry, the pharmaceutical industry and in environmental samples. For example, nitrogen determination in wastewaters and soil samples.
