Features of 990
- The flame and graphite furnace is integrated into one instrument. The change over from one technique to another is carried out by simple keystrokes within the software.
- The instruments have a motorized 8 hollow cathode lamp turret which allows the automatic positioning and optimization of each hollow cathode lamp by the software.
- The control of the gas flows for the fuel gas (C2 H2) and the positioning of the burner is also carried out directly from the software thus allowing optimization of the instruments for the best analytical parameters for a selected analysis.
- Two methods of background correction are available. The first utilizes a deuterium lamp and the second is the proven method of self reversal.
- The location of the wavelength and peak selection is automatic and controlled from the software.
- The spectral bandwidth is automated and is available with a choice of five slit sizes.
