Elemental Analysis Sample Preparation

1st April 2013

The Oxygen Flask Combustion Unit (OFCU-1) from Exeter Analytical provides a safe and repeatable method for preparing samples for elemental analysis of Chlorine, Bromine, Iodine, Sulphur, Phosphorus and a number of metals using the Schöniger flask method.

The Schöniger flask method is a well proven technique for combusting samples prior to elemental analysis by ion chromatography or titration. The Schöniger flask method using the attractively priced OFCU-1 is capable of being used for the determination of elemental composition from percentage levels to parts per million.

The durably constructed OFCU-1 copes easily with a wide range of sample types and is very simple to set up, use and maintain. Built with operator safety in mind, the OFCU-1 remotely ignites samples inside a safety interlocked chamber using focused infrared heat from two tungsten-halogen lamps. Integral pressure vents ensure safe release of excess reaction pressure. A thick black acrylic observation window is provided on the OFCU-1 to allow users to visually check ignition has taken place.

With a low list price and minimal running expenses the cost of preparing samples with the Exeter Analytical Oxygen Flask Combustion Unit is low and return on investment rapid.

As a company dedicated to elemental microanalysis, Exeter Analytical's nearly 30 years of involvement with instruments, consumables and supplies has allowed them to better understand the whole problem facing microanalysts. As a consequence whether you are a regular or an occasional purchaser - experienced and knowledgeable staff are always available to provide free informed advice.
