Ashing samples. Made simple.
PYRO Advanced Microwave Muffle Furnace
High sample throughput
Extremely large working cavity area accommodates up to twelve standard 40 mm wide crucibles at a time.
Reduced operating costs
Extremely fast heating rate with a temperature reaching 800 °C in 8 minutes dramatically lowers power costs.
Comfortable working conditions
No heat or odors added to the laboratory and a built-in exhaust system removes fumes.
The Milestone PYRO is an advanced microwave muffle furnace suitable for ashing, sulfated ashing, loss on ignition (LOI), residue on ignition (ROI), fusion and other high-temperature reactions under controlled conditions. The PYRO features interchangeable configurations for ultrafast heating setup, high sample throughput setup and sulfated ashing setup, making it the most flexible and adaptable microwave muffle furnace available in the market.
The PYRO microwave ashing systems’ unique design eliminates equipment corrosion and acid fume pollution, greatly reducing analyst exposure to acid fumes. The PYRO also dramatically reduces ashing times by ramping from room temperature to 800 °C in 8 minutes making ashing of samples a fast, effective and simple process.
Porous ceramic honeycomb frits built into the side walls of the muffle furnace allow a constant stream of air to pass over the sample crucibles. The combination of microwave “superheating” and the oxygen from the air flow results in a dramatic reduction of ashing times.
The high-efficiency microwave energy coupling characteristics of the silicon carbide heating inserts allows the use of any type of crucible (metal, porcelain, quartz, etc.) within the microwave furnace.
