Apex E

Low cost unit primarily designed for ICP Emission systems. The sample path is made from Pyrex and temperature settings of the heater and chiller are fixed.

ICP-AES detection limits can be improved by up to a factor of 6-10 when operating at 1 ml/min using a MicroFlow PFA-ST or PolyPro-ST nebulizer together with the Apex E. Alternatively, the combination of a low flow nebulizer with the Apex E maintains ICP-AES sensitivity while reducing sample consumption by a factor of 5 to 10, improving ICP-AES determinations when the volume of sample is limited.

  • Lower cost high performance inlet system
  • PolyPro-ST or PFA-ST nebulizers
  • O-ring free Pyrex flow path
  • Flow rates 100µL/min to 1mL/min
  • Preset temperature settings for heater (140°C) and cooler (+2°C)
  • 6—10 fold enhancement in sensitivity
  • Simple one switch control (on/off)
  • Optional Membrane Desolvation
