Automated process for operation with high sample throughput

The flame photometer FP8700 is the laboratory version supplemented by a rotation sampler, diluter, and mixer. Ideal for applications with high sample volumes and high concentrations requiring dilution. Various safety mechanisms ensure particularly high operational safety. Especially control laboratories and testing offices benefit from this independent operation. With the models of the FP8000 series, A.KRÜSS Optronic presents to this day unique measuring devices for the simultaneous measurement of the elements Na, K, Ca and Li. Five measuring channels are available for this, which can be individually configured. Thanks to proven measuring methods and modern device electronics, our flame photometers achieve high-precision and reproducible measurement results and are a simple and particularly cost-effective alternative to analysis techniques such as ICP or AAS.

  • Reliable, simultaneous measurement of up to five alkaline and alkaline earth elements
  • Automatic dilution
  • Automatic sample feed
  • Suitable for high sample throughput and small sample volumes
  • Little care needed by users
  • Very high precision
  • Maximum operational safety through intelligent security mechanisms
  • User administration with two authorization levels
  • Full traceability of the measurement results
  • Extensive interfaces and convenient data transfer
  • Compliance with international standards such as GMP / GLP and 21 CFR Part 11

Technical data flame photometers (PDF, 128 KB)

Economical by automatic measurement including dilution

The samples are diluted and measured. The procedure needs virtually no care by the user.

 

Unique safety concept

Automated shutdown of gases

  • At extinguished flame
  • with regular shutdown of the system
  • in case of power failure
  • at low fuel gas, oxidant or cooling air pressure
  • at low fuel gas or air pressure or failure of the cooling air

The safety functions are monitored by an independent safety circuit

 

Intuitive operation

Our flame photometers are easy and intuitive to operate with a large touch screen display and USB mouse.

  • User administration with two authorisation levels
  • Traceability of all measurement data and device-specific data
  • Full traceability of the measurement results
  • Extensive interfaces and convenient data transfer
  • Compliance with international standards such as GMP / GLP and 21 CFR Part 11
 

Calibration, samples, controls and standards

Aqueous samples, controls and standards are measured manually or automatically. The calibration is done via the standards. The measurement results can be checked with the controls.
The emission values and concentration values of the calibration are displayed graphically and in tabular form for the check.

 

Flame photometer applications

The A.KRÜSS flame photometers allow simple and cost-effective determination of alkali and alkaline earth element concentrations in aqueous solutions. They are mainly used in laboratory and process operations in the pharmaceutical, beveage, food, environmental, chemical and cement industries.
