DESCRIPTION
MILESTONE PYRO XL

Microwave Ashing System for Extra-large sample amount

The PYRO-XL includes all the design features of the PYRO.

In addition, the PYRO-XL includes a quartz tube which leads from the microwave chassis to the roof of the large volume (5 L) muffle furnace. The quartz tube enables fumes generated during the ashing process to be directly exhausted insuring instrument longevity and minimum preventative maintenance. Other microwave furnaces speed up the airflow through the cavity, yet still force the fumes through the exhaust fan. This results in more operator maintenance and, more importantly, greatly reduces fan lifetime due to corrosion. The PYRO-XL’s exhaust duct is made of stainless steel to eliminate diffusion of odors into the laboratory and insures a comfortable working environment.


 

Why the PYRO XL?

The determination of ash content is an important test performed daily in thousands of laboratories.
While ashing is a relatively simple process, conventional muffle furnaces are inefficient in a number of respects, which often leads to the process being tedious and time consuming.
On the other hand, electrical resistance furnaces are typically costly to maintain due to high energy consumption.
Additionally, both of these types of instruments have a tendency to diffuse heat making the surrounding laboratory environment uncomfortable due to heat and odors.
The application of microwave technology to dry ashing procedures has presented a breakthrough in the process and quality control of samples like polymers, petroleum, food and feeds, pulp paper and pharmaceuticals.
However, the ashing of high volumes of these types of matrices, which generally tend to generate a high quantity of fumes, have been challenging.


Technical features

A special microwave-transparent ceramic muffle allows microwave radiations to pass through and rapidly raise the temperature of a high-absorber material plate, located in the upper part of the cavity.
Sample crucibles are placed on a large clean quartz plate and an airflow is generated by a built-in exhaust system.
Temperature is controlled via a high-precision sensor located in close proximity to the bottom of the ashing crucibles.
The PYRO XL is operated using a stand-alone, color, touchscreen controller.
Running Milestone’s EasyCONTROL software, it provides the operator with a simple yet effective interface and has real-time monitoring and feedback of all microwave processes.

 


BENEFITS

Rapid heating

The PYRO XL’s ability to ramp from room temperature to 800 degrees in approximately 30 minutes eliminates the need to keep the system on continually.

Large muffle cavity for high throughput

The PYRO XL has a large muffle cavity which can accommodate several crucibles simultaneously.

Crucibles

The high-efficiency coupling features of the silicon carbide plate allows for the use of virtually any type of crucible including platinum, nickel, porcelain, quartz and quartz fiber.

Comfortable working conditions

The ceramic muffle is an excellent insulator which minimizes diffusion of heat to the surrounding laboratory areas. The built-in exhaust system removes fumes from the interior and direct an exhaust hose to a fume hood or other outlet.

Cost effective: Reduce your laboratory's energy consumption by simply turning the PYRO XL on when an ashing test is required.



The solution for challenging matrices

The application of microwave technology to dry ashing procedures has presented a breakthrough in the process and quality control of samples like polymers, petroleum, food and feeds, pulp paper and pharmaceuticals.
However, the ashing of high volumes of these types of matrices, which generally tend to generate a high quantity of fumes, have been challenging. The fumes often condense when they come in contact with colder parts of the instrument which results in hard layers of residue forming; this in turn can affect the operation and lifetime of the instrument itself.
To specifically address this challenge, Milestone has developed the PYRO XL which is faster, cleaner and more energy-efficient than conventional ashing systems. The PYRO XL allows the analyst to process multiple crucibles, containing a combined total of up to 100 grams of sample, simultaneously.
