Is UltraWAVE the Game Changer in Microwave Digestion?
10 Jul 2017
Milestone say that the UltraWAVE is changing how industrial and research laboratories around the world prep samples for analysis.
Patented UltraWAVE Single Reaction Chamber (SRC) technology goes beyond traditional closed and open vessel digestion, offering significantly greater digestion capabilities for even the most difficult sample types.
The UltraWAVE is capable of processing multiple samples under identical temperature and pressure conditions. Unlike closed vessel digestion, different sample matrices can be digested together, and the chamber is water cooled, which makes cool down time very fast. Any type of acids can be used.
The UltraWAVE operates up to 199 bar pressure and 300°C. Unlike all conventional microwave digestion systems, every sample is under direct temperature and pressure and temperature control- no needs to rely on a reference vessel or to an indirect control such as infrared temperature sensors. This assures complete control of the digestion process in every sample.
With higher performance, higher sample throughput, improved workflow, plus lower labor and consumables costs when compared with conventional systems, the UltraWAVE is transforming microwave digestion.
And not only microwave digestion: its higher sample weight capability, greater digestion power, outstanding throughput and ease of operation means UltraWAVE can replace open vessel digestion, high pressure ashing and even block digestion in many applications.
The UltraWAVE is operated via a compact control terminal with easy-to-read, bright, full-color, touch- screen display.
Hundreds of applications, including all US EPA methods, are preloaded in the UltraWAVE terminal.
