Reduce Running Costs

Unique Combination Eco Mode/MiniTorch Reduces Running Cost by Dramatically Reducing Gas Consumption
 

In addition to lower running costs, the environmentallyfriendly minitorch plasma unit, developed by Shimadzu, minimizes the energy (electricity) consumed in producing and maintaining an argon plasma.

 

Three Factors That Reduce Running Costs

 

MiniTorch Plasma Unit
 

One of the highest costs associated with ICPMS systems is the large quantity of argon gas they consume. However, Shimadzu's proprietary minitorch plasma system consumes twothirds the argon gas (10 L/min) as conventional plasma torches. Consequently, one gas cylinder of argon (~7,800 liters) allows for approximately ten hours of continuous operation.

 

Eco Mode (5 L/min of Plasma)
 

During standby when Eco mode is active, the plasma gas flow and power are reduced to 5 L/min and 0.5 kW to minimize the required gas and electricity; however, analysis can be started immediately with no loss of productivity.

 

 

LowPurity Argon Compatible
 

Highpurity argon gas required by conventional systems is no longer necessary. Using less expensive argon gas (99.95%) over a threeyear period can reduce costs by several tensofthousands of dollars.

 

 

Designed for High Stability and Low Running Costs

 

New HighFrequency Power Supply!
 

Shimadzu is the world's first ICP manufacturer to develop an allsolidstate highfrequency power supply. Due to Shimadzu's extensive experience, this freerunning type highfrequency power supply unit offers the highest output stability. * As of December 2015, based on data obtained by Shimadzu

 

 

More Compact Vacuum System!
 

The smaller threestage splitflow turbomolecular pump is especially easy to maintain, maximizing uptime of the instrument.

 

Secondary Electron Multiplier Tube Detector!
 

The 9digit dynamic range detector allows for measuring major components and trace components simultaneously with high sensitivity.

 

Lens System Minimizes Contamination!
 

Located behind the newly developed collision cell, the focusing lens improves ion transmission efficiency and elimination of light emission from the plasma. * Light emission removal is especially important when combining with Laser Ablation systems.

 

Newly Developed Collision Cell!
 

The newly developed collision cell achieves superior sensitivity by providing highly efficient molecular ion removal and high elemental ion transmission using only helium gas.

 

Newly Designed Interface!
 

The newly designed interface allows for easy maintainability. All parts can be removed and installed without the need for tools, which helps minimize downtime associated with cleaning and servicing.

 

High Stability and Low Running Costs
 

Shimadzu's Proprietary MiniTorch Plasma System Based on Shimadzu's extensive experience developing ICP emission spectrometers, Shimadzu's independentlydeveloped minitorch unit offers unrivaled performance and savings. One of the highest costs associated with ICPMS systems is the large quantity of argon gas they consume. However, Shimadzu's proprietary minitorch plasma system consumes twothirds the argon gas (10 L/min) as conventional plasma torches. Furthermore, during standby when Eco mode is active, the plasma gas flow and power are reduced to 5 L/min and 0.5 kW to minimize the required gas and electricity; however, analysis can be started immediately with no loss of productivity.

 

EasytoMaintain Sample Injection System
 

Cyclone Chamber Cooled by a Peltier Element The sample injection system features an electronicallycooled cyclone chamber utilizing a highly efficient coaxial nebulizer and unique overflow drain design. This design combines highly efficient aerosol production while reducing carryover to maximize sensitivity and throughput.
