NovaWAVE* - A new category of Automated Microwave Digestion

NovaWAVE SA can be upgraded to the fully automated NovaWAVE FA mode through the acquisition of the Transporter and additional racks. With the use of volume calibrated Quartz vessels for most applications and/or Teflon® vessels with HF acid, hundreds of samples can be processed easily in a day.

Vessels are placed in racks which are moved under software control into the microwave tunnel. Twelve microwave mini cavities are dynamically formed and energy is delivered to each mini microwave cavity according to the digestion method selected. On exiting the tunnel, the rack proceeds to the Cooling Station as the second rack enters the tunnel to begin its digestion sequence. Once the digestion of the second rack is completed, it moves to the Cooling Station with the first rack moving to the Auto- Venting Station. Here, vessels are vented automatically when they reach the preset temperature assigned in the method.
