For many years, mercury has been used in a number of products, processes, and laboratory operations. Mercury is universally regarded as a hazardous material. Health and safety regulations require that anywhere mercury is used, a means of managing spillage and human exposure must be provided.
Micromeritics’ Mercury QuikVac from Particle and Surface Sciences Australia is an excellent device for quickly containing mercury spills. The instrument is capable of collecting liquid mercury droplets and mercury-contaminated particulate matter.
Its compact size and light weight make it ideal for laboratory applications. A replaceable 0.3 – 0.5 micron activated carbon filter traps mercury vapors and exhausts clean, safe air. The instrument also includes a large capacity 250-mL recovery bottle.
Particle & Surface Sciences offer a wide-ranging program of support solutions, including installation and service of all instruments by factory trained technicians, an Analytical Laboratory and a Sales Department to assist with your enquiries. PsS will be running a series of seminars across Australia during 2009.
