Designed for use in the oil industry with a focus on wear metals, the ASX-1400 and ASX-1600 autosamplers have mixing capabilities and a unique drip cup to prevent cross contamination.
Used oil samples analyzed for wear metals contain particulate matter which can settle prior to analysis, and create unrepeatable results. The ASX-1400 and ASX-1600 autosamplers have been developed to solve this problem.
Prior to analysis, each sample is automatically homogenized by the autosampler. A simple stirring paddle design mixes samples efficiently and rinses clean using minimal rinse solution. Variable-speed control ensures proper mixing of the samples, leading to more precise results.
Accelerated movement dramatically increases efficiency in large volume sample processing. A centrally located wash station reduces probe travel time. Average sample handling time is as low as six seconds.
Software allows the operator to configure probe and stirrer depth as well as stirring speed to ensure proper mixing of the samples, leading to more precise results.
An incorporated drip cup moves under the sample probe and stirrer to eliminate cross contamination from messy drips. Independent rinse stations for probe and stirrer further address carryover.

A built in drip cup moves with the sample probe and stirrer, preventing messy drips and cross contamination as they move over the samples.
Independent Rinse Stations
Independent, continuous flowing rinse station for the sample probe and mixing paddle minimize sample contamination and carryover.
