The Soxlet apparatus is used to extract and clean the core sample from oil, water and any other materials. The apparatus is based on a heating mantle to boil the solvent, a sample chamber and a water-cooled system to condense the solvent vapors. The core sample is first placed into the sample chamber. Then, the solvent is heated and vaporized. The solvent vapors travel through a lateral way and rise to the top of the glass tube where is the cold trap. At this place, the vapors condense and fall into the sample chamber. The solvent fills the chamber and removes soluble components from the core. Then, the spoiled solvent is evacuated from the chamber through a siphon and goes back to the flask where it will be redistilled.
