  Working Principles
Click to ViewThe compounds of the alkali and alkaline earth metals (Group II) dissociate into atoms when introduced into the flame. Some of these atoms further get excited to even higher levels. But these atoms are not stable at higher levels. Hence, these atoms emit radiations when returning back to the ground state. These radiations generally lie in the visible region of the spectrum. Each of the alkali and alkaline earth metals has a specific wavelength.

  User Instructions
1. Flame photometer can be applied both for quantitative and qualitative analysis of elements. 2. The radiations emitted by the flame photometer are characteristic to particular metal. Hence with the help of Flame photometer we can detect the presence of any specific element in the given sample. 3. The presence of some group II elements is critical for soil health. We can determine the presence of various alkali and alkaline earth metals in soil sample by conducting flame test and then the soil can be supplied with specific fertilizer. 4. The concentrations of Na+ and K+ ions are very important in the human body for conducting various metabolic functions. Their concentrations can be determined by diluting and aspirating blood serum sample into the flame. 5. Soft drinks, fruit juices and alcoholic beverages can also be analyzed by using flame photometry to determine the concentrations of various metals and elements.
