UK Launch for a New Direct Mercury Analyser

Oct 26 2007

Quantitech Ltd is launching a new addition to the Teledyne Leeman Labs ?Hydra' family of mercury analysers: the Hydra-C.
The Hydra-C is a fully automated mercury analyser employing thermal decomposition and atomic absorption for the rapid (5 minutes) direct analysis of liquid or solid samples without a need for acid digestion.

Hydra-C is designed to satisfy the requirements of the US EPA method 7473 and address the needs of analysts who simply want to determine mercury without prior sample pre-treatment.
The Hydra-C is a highly refined and sensitive instrument which incorporates numerous features that make its operation significantly more user friendly than earlier generation instruments.

Some of Hydra-C's features include:

? High Sensitivity from Hydra's 25 cm long optical path.
? Extended Dynamic Range
? Simplified Sample Loading the self-registering autosampler allows unrestricted access during sample loading. Additional racks can be added to running sequences providing virtually unlimited capacity. The optional on-line balance enables direct sample weight entry.
? Automated Scheduled Maintenance tracks system usage and instructs the operator when maintenance is recommended.
? Ergonomic Design provides easy access to decomposition and catalyst furnaces for easy maintenance and troubleshooting.
? Versatile Software Microsoft Windows XP programming with navigation panel makes system operation extremely easy.
? 21CFR 11 Compliant Software provides password protected access control electronic signatures, audit trail and data integrity.
? Compatible with Liquid or Solid Samples
? Fast and Economical Service The Hydra-C's modular design allows easy exchange of furnace, spectrometer or autosampler modules.
? Reliable Sample Movement Samples are moved with high precision, motor driven mechanisms which prevent the acceleration/deceleration related losses that can occur with gas driven mechanisms.
? Low Gas Consumption Oxygen is used only as a carrier gas and not for pneumatic actuation.
? Automatic sample weight entry, with optional on-line balance.
? No Corrosive Chemicals Used.
? No Hazardous Waste Produced.
? Single calibration - for a wide range of matrices such as fish, coal, soil, water, and biological fluids.
