Quicker, Safer Ashing and Analysis with Advanced Microwave Muffle Furnace

Oct 21 2016

The brand new Milestone PYRO advanced microwave muffle furnace, distributed by Analytix (UK), brings considerable time saving benefits to ashing, a traditionally time-consuming task.

The instrument, only available in the UK and Ireland from Analytix, brings together the key features of the three outgoing models, the PYRO, PYRO XL and PYRO SA.

The PYRO is especially suited to the petrochemical industry, with huge time savings to be made while preparing samples such as heavy oil. Oil typically takes 960 minutes to be ashed in a traditional muffle furnace, but that time is almost quartered, taking just 230 minutes in a PYRO system.

The PYRO’s flexibility allows three configurations: ultrafast heating, high sample throughput, or sulphated ashing. The PYRO is a highly-efficient alternative to conventional muffle furnaces and dramatically reduces ashing times from hours to minutes.

Other key features include fast heating, requiring just eight minutes only from room temperature to 1,000°C or 10 minutes to 1,200°C, and fast ashing, requiring just minutes instead of hours.

The PYRO also offers high sample throughput, with up to 24 samples handled simultaneously and increased safety, with no exposure to heat or fumes and even temperature distribution across the 70-litre muffle cavity.
