Microwave Digestion of Sediments according to DIN EN 13346
Digestion of sediments can be operated according to DIN EN 13346 when using the Berghof microwave speedwave XPERT. Its DAP-60X vessel system allows the digestion of 12 samples at the same time. In order to get a clear solution for further analyses, an acid solution of HNO3 and HCl has to be used. The exact mixture and all important steps for this digestion can be found in the application note.
