Milestones large industrial grade muffle microwave ashing furnace, the PYRO is available from John Morris Scientific .
The PYRO can reach temperatures of 1000°C from room temperature in less than an 1 hour (for a remarkable savings in energy costs). The outside of the PYRO stays cool so the ambient temperature of the lab is unaffected. The ceramic muffle furnace accommodates standard ceramic, quartz, platinum and nickel crucibles.
For methods that require H2SO4, the optional PYRO SA module enables analysts to add sulphuric acid directly to a sample without a preliminary charring step, while safely ramping the temperature and evacuating and neutralising acid vapours.
