THE ICP 5000DV FROM PG INSTRUMENTS IS A FULLY AUTOMATED FAST SIMULTANEOUS INDUCTIVELY COUPLED ARGON PLASMA (ICP – OES) SPECTROMETER
The Spectrometer, with a focal length of 0.4m and a wavelength range of 165 – 900nm, utilises an Echellé Grating and a Prism which acts as a Cross Dispersion System allowing the simultaneous display of all spectral lines in a single exposure and the analysis of the complete spectrum in a compact area. The Spectrometer is argon purged to allow the analysis of elements in the far UV. The detection system is a Charged Coupled Device (CCD) 1024 x1024 Pixels. (CCD Pixel Size 24 µm x 24µm). This high speed acquisition system provides for simultaneous Full- Spectrum reading and real-time single pixel sub- array monitoring allowing very fast analysis. The “on – board” Solid State RF Generator operates at a frequency of 40.68MHz and has a computer controlled forward power range of 800 – 1600 Watts with real time automatic tuning with stability better than 0.1%. The plasma ignition and generator output is fully monitored via the ICP-Win Software. The instrument is available with axial, radial or dual view.
The sample introduction system is via a multi- channel (4 channel) 12 roller peristaltic pump (controlled via the software). A Quartz Torch, cyclonic spray chamber and a concentric glass nebuliser are supplied as standard (Further options available on request).
The system is fully computer controlled via user friendly ICP-Win Software. The multi–window and multi-method analysis program enables fast simultaneous measurements. The software has a built in library of over 70000 spectral lines showing inter-element corrections (IEC) and interferences. Visual Background correction points are displayed. The software allows the display of complete “Spectrograms” showing automatically and manually calibrated spectral lines.
