speedwave XPERT with DAK -100 vessel



The Speedwave XPERT is primarily used to digest carbide samples with concentrated nitric and hydrofluoric acid. Digestion temperatures of 230°C with a maximum pressure of 40 bar are reached.



“The complex matrix of our samples requires optimal control of the chemical reaction during the digestion process. This is made possible by the Optical Temperature Cut-Off (OTC) system and the Optical Pressure Control System. The sample temperatures and pressures in each vessel are recorded in real time and spontaneous exothermic reactions are determined. The safety shutdown automatically intervenes in the event of overheating or excess pressure, another advantage of this system. The gases generated during a run are safely discharged by the exhaust air system. The vessels can be used individually, are resistant and easy to clean. We are very satisfied with the service, we appreciate the good accessibility and competent contact person for every problem“
