Metals Digestion | AutoBlock

Metals Digestion | AutoBlock


hello and welcome to Environmental
Express tech tips my name is Joe and today will be discussing metals
digestions with the AutoBlock. The AutoBlock provides a fully automated metals
digestion process from injection of concentrated acids and reagents all the
way to a final filter volume step which bring samples volume back to its
original 50 milliliter volume by injecting deionized water into every
vessel the AutoBlock does all of this in a corrosion free environment and utilizes
a 54 well familiar size heating heating block is constructed a Teflon coated
graphite and his house in a kydex casement heating block uses heater mat
technology the AutoBlock also comes with optional fume hood accessory which frees
up valuable laboratory fume hoods space to use the AutoBlock prepare your samples
in the Environmental Express digestion vessels and load them into the unit go to the operator test screen in the software and this will allow you to select preprogramed methods or that
have already been programmed for you once a method has been selected choose
the cells of the HotBlock that are loaded with samples to run your analysis with
once those cells are chosen they will highlight green on the software then
press the start method button to begin your analysis. During the analysis the
AutoBlock records all activities that’s going on during the method. Once the
method is complete you can do that data via the data viewer here on the main
screen the data viewer will show all significant data that occurred during
the analysis. The AutoBlock will come to you with pre-programmed methods based on the EPA
methods available however it does give you flexibility to other modify those
methods or to create your own based on the laboratories needs to do so go to
the method creation screen where you can enter data based on what reagents need
to be injected. The volumes of those reagents, your heat temperature and time
your cool time and the final fill-to-volume the service interface screen is where
all service related items with the AutoBlock occur this will allow you to manage
your re-agents calibrate the graphite block temperature, calibrate your pumps do your maintenance scheduled and
even gives you part numbers for supplies the menu interface screen allows users
to operate the AutoBlock manually. One can raise and lower the racks the AutoBlock the manual interface screen also allows
user to move the reagent addition arm any spot on the block the menu interface screen also allows
you to inject various amount of reagent into any position of the AutoBlock is available and either a 5 reagent system or a 10 reagent system to allow users more flexibility in different
reagent types both rating systems work on a five-way valves slitter run by
peristaltic pumps the environmental to press on a block fully automates metals
digestion procedure from the injection of acids and reagents to the final
filter volume of the ionized water thank you for watching Environmental Express
tech tips on Metals Digestions using the auto block my name is Joe and I appreciate
the opportunity to earn your business
