Description

A Soxhlet (“socks–let”) extractor works by boiling a solution that has a solute of limited solubility in a percolator, then cooling and collecting the condensate in a reservoir from which the concentrated solute can be extracted. A siphon connecting the percolator to the reservoir flushes excess solvent back into the reservoir. Thus, a small amount of solvent is recycled in order to dissolve a larger amount of material. This closed system can be left to run continuously for many hours without the need for constant monitoring
