Spectrometer ( Atom. ): AAS: Furnace
SIMAA™ 6100 Atomic Absorption Spectrometer equipped with a
Tetrahedral Echelle Polychromator (TEP) optical system for simultaneous
multielement analysis. The compact bench-top design incorporates all
spectrometer and Zeeman graphite furnace components into a single unit.
Instrument readings linear in absorbance (-0.500 A to +2.000 A), concentration or emission intensity with continuously variable scale expansion from 0.01 to 100 times. Integration times operator-selectable from 0.1 to 60 sec in increments of 0.1 sec. Reading modes include time-averaged integration, non-averaged integration (peak area), and peak height measurement. Includes built-in statistics. Up to 15 standards and a choice of proven calibration equations. Reslope of the analytical curve using a single operator-selected calibration standard. Built-in IEEE-488 interface for computer connection and use of optional accessories.
Minimum PC Configuration: Compatible DELL® computer; 266 MHz; 64 MB RAM; 1 serial, 1 parallel (bi-directional) interface; 500 MB hard disk drive; 3.5” disk drive; CD-ROM drive; SVGA graphics board and compatible monitor; mouse pointer; Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 (SP5 or higher). Printer: A PerkinElmer-specified professional printer is required for hard copy data.
Analytical programs with up to 12 steps can be set up. Each step can be programmed with the following parameters: Temperature: Ambient up to 2600ºC in steps of 10ºC. Ramp Time: 0 to 99 sec in steps of 1 sec.
Hold Time: 0 up to 99 sec in steps of 1 sec.
Internal Gas Flow: 0 mL/min (gas stop), 50 mL/min (mini-flow), 250 mL/min (full flow); can be switched over to another type of gas (alternate gas).
Furnace Opening and Closing: Pneumatically operated by software command.
Certification: Designed and tested to be in compliance with the legal requirements for technical instruments, including IEC 348, VDE 0411, CSA 22.2 No. 151, and the U.S. Federal Communications Commission standards for radio frequency interference. Complies with German legal requirements for radio interference suppression (better than grade A/0871). The SIMAA 6100 is developed and produced in compliance with ISO 9001. The AA WinLab software provides required control parameters for GLP and instrument performance validation. Safety and EMC standards: EN 61010-1-19993 (IEC 1010-1: 1990 + A1, A2, modified).
Electromagnetic compatibility: EN 50 081-1:92 for emission, EN 50 082-1:92 for immunity, and EN 61326 for electromagnetic compatibility.
Dust-free environment and free of vibrations.
Ambient temperature: +15ºC to +35ºC with a change rate of maximum 3ºC per hour. Relative humidity: 20 to 80% non-condensing.

|Background correction || Longitudinal AC Zeeman-effect background correction using a modulated 0.8 Tesla magnetic field, oriented longitudinally to the optical path. The magnet is automatically switched on during the atomization step only.; roll-over detection is build in.|
|Atomizer|| Built-in, fully computer-controlled transversely heated graphite tube atomizer (THGA). The graphite tube is transversely heated, providing a uniform temperature profile over the entire tube. An external protective gas stream around the graphite tube prevents the entrance of outside air to|
maximize tube life. An internal purge gas goes through the graphite tube to remove the volatilized matrix vapors during drying and thermal pretreatment. The two gas streams are computer-controlled independently. Pneumatic opening and closing of the furnace for easy tube change. Required inert gas: Argon. Inlet pressure: 350 kPa (3.5 bar). aximum gas consumption: 700 mL/min.
|Autosampler||Sampler Table: Installed in front of the furnace unit.|
Removable sample tray with 88 and 148 sampling positions for sample and reference solutions and 1 overflow container for pipet washing. Minimum sample requirement: ca. 0.1 mL. Dispensable Volume: Sample and Reagent: 1... 99 µL, selectable in increments of 1 µL. Maximum dispensable volume: 99 µL (sample volume + reagent volume). Flushing volume: 1.3 mL, fixed. Electronics: The autosampler is powered from the spectrometer and is software-controlled.
