Click to ViewiCE 3000 series AAS are completely automatic with full elemental capacity.The instrument is equipped with Fe, Mn, Cu,Zn,Ca and Mg hollow cathode lamps for analysis.

  Working Principles
Click to View1. The instrument uses the basic principle that the free atoms generated in an atomizer absorb radiation at specific frequency. 2. AAS quantify the absorption of ground state atoms in the gaseous state. 3. The atoms absorb UV/Visible light and make transition to higher energy levels. The analyte concentration is determined from the amount of absorption. 4. The instrument works based on Beer-Lamberts law

  User Instructions
Determination of small amounts of metals (Fe, Mn, Cu , Zn etc) and used in Environmental studies like drinking water, soil, plant, ocean etc. Also used in food and pharmaceutical industries. 1. Check the power supply before start. 2. Check the gas pressure and working condition of exhaust fan. 3. Follow the steps in the user manual.
