  • SwingTop loading and electronic cover lock

  • the digestion vessels are individually inserted into the rotor and removed again - the transport of a fully loaded rotor is therefore not necessary

Fume Collection System and Neutralization Unit

Useful features and extensions for more saftey

  • removal of generated acid fumes by the fume collection system (standard feature)

  • optional neutralizatation unit for neutralization of waste air

Outstanding lifetime of the speedwave XPERT in comparison to other microwave digestion systems

  • corrosion protection in the oven chamber due to high-quality PFA coating

PTFE Vessels

Vessels from Berghof significantly reduce the running costs
for microwave digestions. Due to high-quality processing
and outstanding lifetime, the cost per digestion for Berghof
vessels is € 0.30 only.
In comparison: Vessels from other vendors generate average
costs of € 1.00 per digestion. This means that the running
costs can be reduced by approx. € 7,000 for 10,000 digestion cycles

Product Description

Monitoring of the reaction parameters pressure and temperature in each vessel is essential, as samples rarely react identically during digestion. The temperature of a sample depends, for example, on the sample type and the sample amount.

To reduce safety risks from irregular heating or even spontaneously induced exothermic reactions, it is especially important to monitor the reaction parameters pressure and temperature. The sensor technology developed and patented by Berghof not only measures pressure and temperature, but also controls the microwave power of the speedwave XPERT.

The speedwave XPERT vessels are manufactured with the highest quality standards by the Berghof Fluoroplastic Technology GmbH. They are made from high-quality TFM-PTFE and impress through reliability and an outstanding lifetime. Vessel volumes cover a wide range, from 40 to 100 ml. Multi tube systems or quartz glass inserts allow an even more variable use of vessels, thus the speedwave XPERT can be used for almost any microwave-digestion application
