Microwave Ashing Systems
Microwave Muffle Furnace Ashing System
– High sample throughput
– Reduced operating costs
– Short ashing times
The application of microwave technology for ashing procedures has resulted in a significant improvement in internal quality control and in some cases sample preparation procedures. While many laboratories still use a traditional muffle furnace or electrical furnaces to ash samples for process control purposes, these techniques can be time-consuming – often taking hours per run.
This can result in high energy usage and ultimately, high operating costs. In addition, traditional furnaces have a tendency to diffuse heat and odors while in use which can lead to an uncomfortable working environment. Milestone’s PYRO Microwave Muffle Furnace Ashing System is an excellent alternative to conventional muffle furnace techniques and has helped laboratories in a variety of industries improve their efficiency. The PYRO dramatically reduces ashing times, often from hours to minutes, and offers the laboratory the most versatile way to ash samples. The PYRO’s rugged design focuses on safety while eliminating corrosion, typical ashing odors, and greatly reducing the operator’s exposure to fumes.
