The VELP Oxitest Oxidation Stability Reactor is able to provide high quality, value added information concerning oxidative stability in foods, oils and fats. The VELP Oxitest is an innovative solution entirely controlled by the powerful VELP OXISoft™ software.
The Oxitest Method is officially recognised by the International Standard Procedure AOCS Cd 12c-16





The VELP Oxitest: Oxidation Test Reactor

Watch video of the Oxitest Oxidation Stability Reactor in action. It is the perfect solution for accelerated oxidation stability tests, both on raw materials and finished products, without the need for any preliminary fat separation.

Designed for R&D, product development and quality control labs in food, cosmetic and petrochemical industries.

Oxidative Stability Reactor - Titanium Chambers

The two separate titanium chambers offers the ability to run the same test in duplication, or two different tests at the same time.

Titanium is ideal for this application, as it ensures a high resistance to oxidization and provides excellent chemical compatibility with any test condition.


Oxidative Stability Reactor - OXISoft™, Powerful and Intuitive software

The new OXITEST edition is managed by an outstanding software, to satisfy the most demanding needs. The new OXISoft™ software manages all the analysis steps and easily provides valuable information to enable scientists to perform:

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


Multiple Applications

  • Prediction of the oxidative stability during shelf-life studies
  • Tests the product at defined time intervals; builds an experimental curve
  • Evaluation of the adequacy of storage conditions 
  • Evaluation of the best packaging solution
  • Comparison of the oxidative stability of different formulas for food preparations
  • Evaluation of the oxidative stability of vegetable oils of different botanical origin
  • Evaluation of the effectiveness of antioxidants
  • Information on product oxidation when the oxidation flex is not visible
  • Especially useful for products with a low fat content (4-5%)
  • Oxidative stability test of incoming raw materials and outgoing finished products

Simple and Safe Operation

  • Intuitive OXISoft™ software – easy to learn and use
  • Overpressure safety valve
  • Alarms for damaged probe and out-of-range temperature
  • Choice of language for the management software

Maximum Productivity

  • No sample preparation – works on the whole sample (fat included)
  • Twin chambers for duplicate or parallel analysis
  • Manage up to 4 OXITESTs with the same software

Versatile Data Handling

  • Data recordable in a database
  • Test comparison available with data overlays
  • Data exporting via USB to pen drive or PC
  • Output in .xls, .txt and .csv format to match reporting systems

Robust Design

  • Indestructible titanium sample holders and chambers
  • Hermetically sealed enclosed chambers.
