500th iCAP 6000 Series ICP Emission Spectrometer is Shipped to Boeing

Jul 26 2007

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., is pleased to announce that the 500th iCAP 6000 ICP emission spectrometer produced at its facility in Cambridge, UK has been shipped to Boeing.

The instrument has been purchased by Boeing for use at its Frederickson facility in Washington State, USA. It will be used in the quality assurance laboratory to monitor the contents of chemical tanks used in the production of aluminum wings and other structural components. The Thermo Scientific iCAP 6000 will be analyzing traces of metals including copper and iron in the tanks which range in capacity from 34,000 to 59,000 gallons. This analysis is indicative of the ?health' of the tanks and is a key step in the QA processes.

Paul Gillyon, product group director of Elemental Analysis, Thermo Fisher Scientific, comments: "We are extremely proud to have Boeing as our 500th customer and I am sure that the iCAP 6000 will provide excellent service in their laboratory for many years".

The iCAP 6000 Series is the most sensitive and compact ICP emission spectrometer available on the market and in the year since it was launched it has won the 2006 Instrument Business Outlook Gold Award for excellence in industrial design as well as an award from the Analytical Instrument Society of China. Featuring excellent detection capability, the Thermo Scientific iCAP 6000 Series is up to five times more powerful than conventional instruments while keeping annual operation costs at a minimum. A distributed purge system offers reduced gas consumption whereas the inherent capabilities of fully automated wavelength calibration and offset correction ensure excellent long-term stability.
