OXITEST Oxidation Stability Reactor

Innovative accelerated oxidation test for the determination of the oxidation stability of fats on the whole sample according to AOCS Cd-12c-16.

Fats and oils oxidation stability tests for R&D and QC LabsZ

The oxidation stability tests performed with the OXITEST reactor accelerate the lipid’s oxidation process that in normal conditions can last weeks or months and provide fast, accurate and reliable results for Food & Feed, Cosmetic, Pharma and Petrochemical industries. 

The OXITEST provides added value information for Quality Control and Research & Development Labs for: 

  • Quality control of raw materials and ingredients 
  • Transportation and effects on goods
  • Storage period studies
  • Product Development and behavior
  • Formula Optimization 
  • Ingredient and alternative ingredients testing
  • Process optimization
  • Packaging study and alternative packaging comparison 

 

Representative results testing the whole sample

The OXITEST reactor subjects the sample to a high oxidative stress environment in order to evaluate, in a short period of time, the resistance to fat oxidation: 

  • Established over-pressure of pure oxygen (6 bar, degree 5.0)
  • High constant temperature, 90 °C  

With the OXITEST Method, the stability test is performed directly on the sample as it is solidliquid or doughy

The method’s key advantage is that the OXITEST ensures representative results without extensive sample preparation

Other components of the sample matrix such as chemical oxidants or transition metal can promote oxidation and the use of extracted matter may not be a suitable predictor of stability

 

OXISoft™ software powerful and intuitive

The OXITEST is entirely controlled via PC through the intuitive OXISoftTM software which is able to control up to 4 OXITEST simultaneously and independently. The OXISoft™ is quick and easy-to-use, at a glance you always have the program parameters, work conditions and results. 

The software comes with multi-lingual support and a pre-installed library of methods related to a wide range of sample types, you can use these, modify them and create your own methods!

Data management, reportiing and archive with the foloowing test types: 

  • Repeatability test
  • Freshness test
  • Formulas comparison
  • Packaging comparison
  • IP during ageing
  • Estimated shelf life

 

Premium titanium parts

The oxidation chambers, sample holders and covers are made of titanium, a premium material guaranteeing: 
 

  • High resistance
  • Excellent chemical compatibility;
  • Easy cleaning 
  • Cost savings since no disposable consumables are required.
