Perkin Elmer Inc. – HGA-900 Graphite furnace
The HGA ® 900 for the AAnalyst 400 is the latest in advanced furnace designs from PerkinElmer, the world’s leading supplier of graphite furnace systems. The HGA 900 applies the latest advances in graphite furnace technology for unparalleled performance, flexibility and ease-of-use.
The HGA 900 is controlled by the powerful, easy-to-use PerkinElmer WinLab32™ for AA software. The unique mounting arrangement makes the change from furnace to flame operation (or vice versa) extremely easy.
The PerkinElmer HGA Massman-type graphite furnace design used in the HGA 900 has proven its capabilities in tens of thousands of laboratories worldwide. With the HGA 900 you don’t have to worry about variations in input line voltage affecting the performance of your furnace. A state-of-the-art power supply monitors and compensates for line variations, providing heating rates independent of input line voltages (208-240V). The result is heating rates greater than 2000 °C/s, providing the highest degree of freedom from interferences and the most reproducible characteristic mass values of any furnace available – any day, anytime. Unlike other furnace systems, with the HGA 900, tube temperatures are virtually independent of graphite tube electrical resistance resulting in consistent, repeatable temperatures and performance.
The HGA 900 features the patented PerkinElmer graphite tube with integrated platform – the most significant improvement in platform atomization in the last two decades.
