(easy handling - fast determination)
The ion chromatograph IONUS is the ideal instrument for the analysis of cations and anions in water, drinking water, environmental samples, in research, quality control of process water in semiconductor industry and in power plants.
This produces on the day by day use results with the highest precision, reproducibility and accuracy.
The autosampler allows the continuous analysis of up to 192 samples (4 x 48). The samples are stored at 8 OC in the autosampler. The mechanics of the xyz-robot allow the injection of the samples in 1μl steps without sample loss. A washing routine of the injection valve and syringe pump guarantees zero cross-contamination.
Eluent system - the double-head pump guarantees the high precision of the eluent flowrate. In combination with the pulse dampening unit the almost pulsfree operation is possible.
Degasser - the integrated degassing unit reduces the time of eluent preparation and guarantees continuous operation.Sample separation - columns with different separation resins and capacities enable the user to get optimal results with a very high reproducibility.
Suppression - the automated suppression system is pressure stable resulting in a low signal/noise ratio. This guarantees detection limits down to 1 μg/l. Conductivity detector - highest sensitivity and a broad
measuring range allow the determination of samples from trace analysis up to process water.
Operation software iControl
IONUS is operated with the user friendly, self-explanatory software iControl. Implemented, optimized separation programs are correlated with each sample for the analysis. Correlation with new samples can be done when the instrument is analyzing a sample. The current status of important instrument parameters is
shown. All operation parameters and events of each analysis are documented in a log-file.
Individual separation programs can be easily created and stored in the software.
Data acquisition and handling
The data acquisition and data analysis system records the data sent by the conductivity detector. Chromatograms are shown on-line. Internal data banks allow the fast peak identification. Quantitative
calculations are performed with internal or external standards, dilution and/or multiplication factors.
Several analysis runs can be compared using compiler programs. The results of each analysis is documented in an individual report.
