Cellulose extraction thimbles are produced from high quality alpha cellulose cotton linter and have excellent mechanical strength and retention. Double thickness thimbles have a wall thickness of approximately 2 mm (6µm nominal particle retention) for applications where higher retention and increased wet or dry strength or rigidity is required. These thimbles are used in Soxhlet extraction units providing a safe, convenient and efficient method of solvent extraction of solids and semi-solids.
