Mercury analysis can be a cumbersome process with multiple sample preparation steps required. Furthermore, instrumentation can require extensive and frequent calibration (as often as twice a day!)
The Milestone DMA-1 Direct Mercury Analyser from Analytix overcomes these common problems as a calibration can last up to six months and is matrix independent. Samples require no sample preparation and are simply weighted into sample boats and loaded into the instrument. Measurements take as little as six minutes and total mercury results are generated at the end of analysis.
Given the ease of use and cost effectiveness, the system is also ideal for use out in the field or off-shore on oil platforms. Systems can be calibrated in the lab/on-shore prior to shipment, also meaning that hazardous mercury does not need to be shipped with the system. Maintenance is simple, with support often performed remotely, ideal when up-time is crucial.
