Metrohm’s new Icon analysers perform photometric absorption measurements in the visible light range.
With differential absorbance colorimetry (DAC), the analyser compensates for the colour and turbidity of the sample by measuring both before and after the addition of a colour reagent.
The following components can be measured using the DAC technique: Aluminium, Ammonia, Chlorine, Chromium, Copper, Cyanide, Hydrazine, Iron, Manganese, Nickel, Nitrate, Nitrite, Phenol, Phosphate, Silica and Zinc.
The photometer module is comprised of a heated cuvette with 2.4cm light path and a long-life LED source. Various parameters can be managed by the software besides analysis results – low reagent level alarms, calibration errors, and loss of sample are a few examples of alarms that can be logged into the database or sent to a control room for further review the operator.
Multiple user levels are offered in the software which are suitable for any operator.
Plug and analyse – just connect the power, sample, and reagent lines and your analyser is fully operational.
