The scoutDX controls up to 20 remote (TX or DTX) modules that collect and transfer discrete samples to the central system. Rapid transfer rates allow the central system to provide real-time ICPMS analysis and monitoring of ultra-trace impurities in process streams, chemical baths, bulk chemicals, environmental effluents, and other liquid samples. The scoutDX (TX, DTX) remote modules are stationed at sampling points up to 300 meters from the scoutDX central system creating a working distance of 600m (282,600m2).
TXS or DTXS remote modules sample and transport chemicals up to 300 meters to the scoutDX central system for ICPMS detection. Up to 20 TXS and DTXS sampling modules can be controlled using a single central scoutDX system. The TXS remote module accurately and repeatedly collects discrete, small volume samples (1 to 3 mL) and transports them to the central scoutDX system.
The DTXS remote module is used when transport of viscous samples is required. The syringe based autodilution function of the DTXS will dilute viscous samples (e.g. concentrated acids) before transfer to the central scoutDX system for trace metal detection.
The scoutDX controls and receives samples from multiple remote sampling modules for ICPMS analysis. The fully automated scoutDX will autocalibrate the ICPMS, and auto and/or intelligently dilute samples in a fully contained environment. Full automation eliminates human interaction with harmful chemicals and greatly reduces potential work place hazards.
The fully integrated scoutICPMS Central System quickly and accurately monitors contaminants in a wide range of liquid streams or baths. Frequent monitoring not only provides a better understanding of the cleaning process, but can also be used to set contamination limits. Setting contaminant limits in the central system will alert the CIM host when any element in any liquid stream or bath exceeds the limit.
Fully integrated with ICPMS
The central system’s intuitive host software controls the scoutDX central module, remote modules, ICP/ICPMS and communicates with the CIM Host using SECS/GEM protocol. This allows the user to define element specific limits for contaminants at each sample station. Any values that exceed the user defined contaminant limits trigger an alarm at the Central System and sends an alert to the CIM Host.
