Questron Technologies offers microwave ashing system to reduce ashing times for organic rich samples. Microwave ashing system heats very fast to compare to traditional electrical heating furnaces. Questron has unique feature where in stream of air is injected in microwave ashing system to carry out ashing of organic rich samples in 90 % of time taken by other heating systems. Microwave ashing system is ideal for determining ash contain of organic samples. Microwave ashing system is used as first step in digesting samples. Organic rich samples are ash in microwave ashing system where by all organic rich portion of sample is converted to carbon dioxide and minerals are converted to ash. Such ash generated from organic rich samples in microwave ashing system is then further digested using hot block or microwave digesting system and analysed for its metal contain.

Faster & Consistent . . .
  Microwaves coupled with SiC are known to produce high temperatures at a much faster rate compared to old electrical heating furnaces. QAsh has a software controlled air inlet inside the ashing chamber which fuels the ashing process. The introduction of air at the source pushes ashing by-products out. An alumina fiber ashing chamber helps retain heat. This provides an efficient ashing process. Vertically placed SiC plates, in conjunction with ceramic insulation, create uniform temperatures across the ashing chamber. The R type thermocouple is encapsulated in a chemical resistant material. It measures temperatures accurately over the working range of 25°C to 1,200°C.
Microwave Ashing Ceramic Chamber

Cleaner & Cooler . . .

Software controlled compressed air or nitrogen gas are introduced in to the chamber to draw out fumes and soot.  The built-in fan and external blower purge hot gases for safe disposal and results in a cleaner system interior and a cooler exterior. This assists in maintaining a comfortable working environment. The exhaust port has a filter trap to prevent particulate matter and other ashing by-products from entering the exhaust fan thus increasing the life of the exhaust fan..


User Friendly Software Control . . .
