Teledyne Leeman Labs Hydra II AF Gold


Hydra II AF Gold

Hydra IIAF Gold is a fully automated cold vapor atomic fluorescence Hg analyzer designed to meet the requirements of all current low-level Hg analysis methods including: EPA methods 1631 and 245.7 as well as EN methods 13506 and 12338. This system delivers a detection limit well below 0.05 ppt when gold amalgamation is used and 0.1 ppt without it. It also provides a dynamic range that extends to 250 ppb and productivity tools that are unmatched by other CVAF instruments. Tools like advanced high concentration protection and an autosampler that holds up to 270 samples.
