ETHOS X Microwave Extraction System

ETHOS X Microwave Extraction System

/24 samples in < 1 hour

New fastEX-24 rotor can simultaneously extract 24 samples in 40 minutes.

Substantial reduction in solvent

Less solvent is needed than traditional extraction methods.

Large volume disposable vials

100 mL vials can hold up to 30 g of sample.

Your input guided our development of the Milestone ETHOS X with a new fastEX-24 rotor to specifically address the challenges of today’s environmental laboratories.

The Milestone ETHOS X microwave lab station in combination with our fastEX-24 rotor offers your lab simultaneous extraction of 24 samples in 40 minutes with minimal solvent usage. Our unique WeflonTM material provides homogeneous heating and facilitates accurate contact-less temperature monitoring of all vessels. Each vessel holds 100 mL disposable vials allowing you to extract 30 g samples while eliminating memory effects and clean up.

The benefit: Higher throughput and easier handling results in both reduced cost and turnaround time for your lab

The fastEX-24 rotor helps laboratory professionals increase throughput and lower operating costs..

  • 24 samples in less than 1 hour
  • Large disposable glass vials (100 mL)
  • Run up to 30 g of sample
  • Unique Weflon material provides homogenous heating
  • Contactless temperature control of all vessels
  • Easy-to-use capping tool

The overall concept of the ETHOS X for environmental applications has been developed looking at the working routine of several thousands contract laboratories around the world performing solvent extraction, with the aim of helping them, by offering an integrated solution able to render their activity easier, faster and safer. The ETHOS X processes more samples in less time and uses a fraction of the solvent required by other technologies.

It is very simple to use and, following an already established US EPA and ASTM methods, it assures consistent results with a minimal running cost. The new Milestone ETHOS X microwave cavity has a volume in excess of 70 liters, by far the largest currently available. With an installed power of 1900 Watts, the ETHOS X is the most powerful microwave platform system available for extraction. Should there be a sudden over-pressurization of the cavity, the all-stainless steel door slightly opens for rapid and safe pressure release and the microwave power is instantaneously cut off. An optional built-in magnetic stirrer is designed to ensure vigorous agitation of the solutions in all vessels.

The new Milestone ETHOS X is equipped with the most advanced yet easy to use reaction temperature and pressure sensors for complete quality control of the extraction conditions. It is controlled via a compact terminal with an easy-to-read, bright, full-color, touchscreen display. The terminal runs a completely new icon-driven, multilanguage software to provide easy control of the microwave run. A completely new rotor has been specifically developed by Milestone to fully accomplish the US EPA method 3546 requirements.

This new rotor consists of a 24-position carousel, which holds large pressure vessels made of an innovative and unique inert polymer material. At the core of the vessel there is a disposable and inexpensive 100 mL glass vial. A self-regulating pressure cover assures safe operations of the system. Temperature and pressure are monitored and controlled in all vessels by non-contact sensors. A fast easy-to-use automatic capping tool makes sure all vessels are properly tightened prior the microwave run.

  • Ease of use – Disposable vials
  • 24 samples simultaneously
  • Minimum solvent usage
  • Low running cost
  • Suitable for US EPA method 3546
  • Suitable for ASTM method D5765-05 (Standard Practice for Solvent Extraction of Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons from Soils and Sediments)
