With more labs using ICP-MS to perform trace metals analysis, the need for high purity grade (10ppt) acid to meet ICP-MS reagent quality requirements has increased dramatically. At the same time, laboratory costs are coming under ever stricter control and as a result, more and more laboratories are producing their own high purity grade (10ppt) grade acids by purifying lower cost trace metal grade (1ppb) acids.
Savillex has created the easiest and most cost-effective way to meet this increasing demand with the NEW DST-1000 and DST-4000 acid purification systems. Both DST acid purification systems use the proven technique of sub-boiling acid distillation to produce high purity acid on demand - in any lab, at any time.
Extremely easy to use, the DST systems are integrated, compact units that fit in any fume hood and do not require a cooling water supply.
The DST-1000 can produce 500ml of high purity HNO3, HCl or HF (or water) in approximately 12 hours, while the higher capacity DST-4000 can produce twice the amount of the DST-1000 in the same time period. Depending upon your laboratories’ acid needs, these units can pay for themselves in as little as a few months or even weeks.
Each DST acid purification unit consists of a self-contained PFA reservoir/condenser vessel (all wetted parts are PFA) with integrated heater and stand. They are easy to fill and empty, and feature high purity Savillex Purillex™ PFA collection bottles for collection of the high purity acid distillate.
Unlike commercially available bottled high purity acid, that degrades each time the bottle is opened, the DST acid purification systems provide a continuous supply of freshly produced high purity acid, suitable for the most demanding applications such as semiconductor and geochemical analyses.
Laboratories around the world using the DST-1000 and DST-4000 save significant costs each year by eliminating high purity acid purchases. Many labs have invested in multiple DST units to supply all of their acid needs. The DST acid purification systems have proven to be the most effective way to save laboratory consumables costs and improve ICP-MS data quality.
