The CETAC BGX-100 Blead Gas Accessory can be used to add a low flow of oxygen (10 to 50 mL/min) between the U6000AT+ Ultrasonic Nebulizer / Membrane Desolvator and the host ICP-AES or ICP-MS instrument. This capability is especially useful for the analysis of organic solvents.
Analysis of Organic Solvents: Some ICP-AES or ICP-MS instruments may not be equipped with an oxygen addition capability. If organic solvents are to be analyzed, oxygen addition to the central channel of the ICP can help prevent carbon build-up on the ICP torch and the ICP-MS sampling cones (sampler and skimmer).
Mass Flow Controller: The BGX-100 incorporates a mass flow controller for oxygen addition up to 50 mL/min +/- 1 mL/min. A flow adjustment knob and a digital readout display of gas flow are provided.
Easy Setup: Oxygen gas is usually teed into the sample out line that is connected between the U6000AT+ Ultrasonic Nebulizer / Membrane Desolvator and the host ICP torch; typical oxygen flow rates range from 10 to 30 mL/min. The BGX-100 completion kit includes an external 24 V power supply, power cord, and gas connection tubing.
