VELP Scientifica UDK Distillation Units are the ideal solution for performing analyses concerning different applications such as determining ammoniacal nitrogen, protein nitrogen, (Kjeldahl or direct alkaline distillation), nitric nitrogen (after reduction), phenols, volatile acids, cyanides, alcohol content, Sulphur dioxide, TVBN, ad Devarda nitrogen determination.
These units support the most advanced technology, consisting in a unique patented steam generator and an outstanding efficient patented titanium condenser that are wisely combined with a technopolymer splash head. Designed with a strong and chemical-resistant structure made of technopolymer, UDK Series has been designed to last in time and to perform reliable analysis for many years. UDK series also incorporates TEMS™ technology for major savings in time, energy, money, and space pursuing VELP’s contribution to environmental protection.
Choose from UDK 129 or 139 Series:
The UDK 129 Series runs automatically, after setting sodium hydroxide addition and distillation time using the LCD display to get reliable and accurate results. The high-precision pumps ensure constant accurate dosing of reagents and the cooling water is automatically stopped during pauses, thus cutting down on its consumption. The UDK 129 incorporates the same high-level technology as the top of the range, with the VELP patented steam generator that offers high performance, safety (no pressure inside) and is maintenance-free. Another unique VELP component is the titanium condenser offering reduced water consumption, ensuring that distillate temperature always remains below the threshold value. The unit works with a technopolymer splash head that ensures durability to protect your investment and requires no maintenance. The technopolymer housing ensures high resistance to chemicals and long life. The UDK 129 had numerous safety features to provide maximum protection for the user. Continuous monitoring indicates incorrect tube and handle positioning; the cooling water flow detector provides a high lever of safety. With a novel design, a level is used to displace the tube support enabling sample tubes to be inserted without any effort and clamped in place securely. Technologically advanced, the UDK 129 includes many features that ensure efficient and reliable distillation, far beyond expectations of an ordinary entry level unit.
The UDK 139 Series runs automatically, after setting distillation time, water, and sodium hydroxide addition and steam generation output level between 10 and 100% using the innovative 3.5” color touchscreen. The high-precision pumps ensure constant accurate dosing of reagents. Accessing the 10 customizable methods available in 6 different languages is simple and intuitive. The UDK 139 incorporates a considerably high level of technology, with the VELP patented steam generator that offers high performance, safety (no pressure inside) and is maintenance-free. Another unique VELP component is the titanium condenser offering reduced water consumption, ensuring that distillate temperature always remains below the threshold value.
