Unleashing Microwave Digestion Precision: Elevate Your Analysis with Torontech Testing Technologies

Microwave Digestion - Elemental Analysis

Accuracy, reliability,  and efficiency is crucial in sample preparation. Enter Microwave Digestion—a revolutionary solution designed to transform your testing processes and elevate the precision of your analyses.

The microwave digestion process strives for a thorough solution of analytes, ensuring no loss or contamination, and complete decomposition of the solid matrix. To achieve this, aggressive reagents like hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, hydrofluoric acid, sulphuric acid, and hydrogen peroxide are employed. Consequently, the containers for digestion samples must possess chemical inertness while allowing the transmission of microwave radiation.

The swift heating of the sample in a sealed container results in rapid pressure increases, necessitating the digestion vessels to withstand such conditions. Additionally, the accelerated heating may induce spontaneous exothermic reactions within the sample, leading to elevated temperatures and pressures.

An excellent material for digestion vessels is isostatically molded TFM™ PTFE, known for its microwave transparency, exceptional mechanical stability, and resistance to chemical vapors. TFM™ PTFE surpasses conventional PTFE with improved resistance to gas permeation.

Moreover, its smooth, anti-adhesive surface and hydrophobic properties simplify cleaning and minimize the risk of cross-contamination, making it an optimal choice for the demands of this instrument process.
