Fusion technology
VULCAN

Fusion technology is used to prepare samples to be analyzed with an X-ray fluorescence machine. It is also used to improve precision compared to pressed powder technology.
Using your VULCAN in combination with the extractor hood will ensure that every bead is produced under the same constant conditions!

Feed and mould control

Easy fitting and lifting of the moulds It is not possible to forget the moulds No contact with the fusion chamber Longer durability of the moulds

Cover function for crucibles

Higher temperature in the crucible (excellent for materials that do not dissolve at low temperatures) Higher thermal stability in the crucible

Lower energy consumption (gases)

Protection against contamination of the sample

VULCAN MA
  • Automatic version
  • No manual adjustment of the flames Full microprocessor control
  • Applications with variable temperature settings possible High flexibility for all types of applications
  • Storage of 10 different programs
VULCAN ICP/AAS

Available as pure ICP device with 4 or 6 stations

Also available as a mix of XRF and ICP stations, for e.g. 21 MA, 22 MA, 31 MA, 32 MA, 41 MA and 42 MA

(first number indicates the XRF-stations, the second the ICP-stations)

Speed of the magnetic stirrer is adjustable

Flux

Borate flux with guaranteed purity from our own production. All fluxes are delivered with a certificate of analysis.

  • Anhydrous homogeneous pre-fused fluxes with a low loss on ignition and defined granulometry
  • With these fluxes, the sample is completely dissolved in a borate glass with a perfect surface
  • Non-hygroscopic Dust < 1%
  • purity > 99,98%
  • Special fluxes on request
