Berghof Microwave Digestion Brazil

Berghof Digestion Technology in Brazil

When microwave radiation was discovered as an alternative heating source more or less accidentally at the end of the 1940s, the idea of using it in chemical laboratories was far away.

It was only in the mid-1980s that microwave ovens were used for wet-chemical digestion. Since then, the technology has been continuously developed and improved.

Chemical analysts want microwave digestion systems that are just as suitable for routine analytics as for complex samples. To assure superior results in all situations, Berghof Products and Instruments offers systems geared precisely to these needs.
Microwave digestions are used in the most diverse areas. One area of application is featured in the publication "Microwave-assisted digestion of Ti orthopedic alloys”.

Joaquim de Araújo Nóbrega, the widely respected expert and one of the authors of the article, is a professor of Analytical Chemistry at the national University of São Carlos in Brazil. He routinely uses Berghof products for microwave digestion in his work and comments:

„The first time that I have heard about the microwave oven designed by Berghof it called my attention because of the technology for measuring pressure in all vessels. This sensor system working together with the sensor for temperature measurement provides a reliable strategy for controlling microwave-assisted digestion. Later on, I have had the opportunity to apply this microwave oven for diverse samples, such as plant leaves, animal tissues, foods, oils and alloys, and I confirmed it delivers efficient digestions without any compromise in safety aspects. I also trust the developed technology for vessels production and their safety tests at critical temperature and pressure conditions make them adequate for several applications. Finally, but not least important, always when developing new applications I have received strong and swift support from Berghof team in Germany and its representative company, Nova Analítica in Brazil.“
