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 are know to couple with SiC to produce high temperatures at much faster rate compare to old electrical heating furnaces.  QASH has controlled air inlet introducing air right in ashing chamber fuelling ashing process. Introduction of air at source also helps push ashing by products out.  Specially designed single form Alumina Fibre ashing chamber helps retaining heat further enhancing efficiency of ashing process.  Vertically placed SiC plates in conjunction with super insulating ceramic material develop uniform temperatures across ashing chamber. R type thermocouple encapsulated in chemical resistant material measures temperatures accurately over working range of 25 to 1200 C.  Programmed heating and use of controlled air flow produces fast and consistent ashing results under such conditions.
Microwave Ashing Ceramic Chamber

Cleaner & Cooler . . .

Compressed air or Nitrogen gas introduced in to the chamber draws out fumes and soot.  With built-in fan and external blower QAsh 1800 directs hot gaseous component to safe disposal resulting in cleaner system interior and cooler exterior.  This helps in maintaining comfortable working condition.  Exhaust port on system has Filter Trap to stop particulate matter and other by products of ashing from escaping to exhaust fan resulting in increase life of exhaust fan.


User Friendly Software Control . . .
QASH 1800 Microwave Ashing System Software  
  • Easy-to-build ashing recipe with multiple heating steps and air control settings
  • Calculates sample weight and % ash content
  • Displays ashing process time and thermal changes graphically
  • Capable of connecting to external Weighing balance for direct weight transfer
  • Manual panel provide control over various functionality
  • Ashing data is collected and stored for archiving or future viewing in graphical or tabular formats.
