Kjeldahl Nitrogen and Total Phosphorus

The Smart Digest block digestor is available in 20 and 40 tube versions.

The Smart Digest is a microprocessor-controlled smart module, for acid digesttion of food products and water samples.

It has been designed to speed up the preparation process for samples to be analysed by conventional chemistry or using our CFA analysers or discrete analysers.
