The EMP-1A Mercury Analyser introduces the mercury directly intot he absorption cell and employs the Cold Vapour Atomic Absorption (CVAA) method to determine the mercury concentration. Intermediate steps employing devices such as Thin Goldfilm (TGF) or absorption solution are not needed.
Most traditional measuring methods require the mercury to be trapped in an absorption solution or solid media collector. The drawback of these methods is they do not provide the fast real-time measurement preferred in the field.
The EMP-1A Mercury Analyser is light weight, accurate and reliable, simple to operate and has a long battery life, not to mention real-time mercury concentration is displayed continuously on the LCD display within 0.5 seconds.
