Due to its special graphite construction, EasyDigest® procures an optimal even temperature throughout each sample. The temperature is stable and accurately controlled at +/- 2°. The maximum operating temperature, 250°C, is generally sufficient for the mineralization, concentration and evaporation operations of most of the mineral acids used: HCl, HNO3, HBr, HF, HCLO4.
EasyDigest® is designed to operate continuously in an aggressive chemical environment. It is totally inert to acid solutions and to the corrosive atmosphere of fume hoods (PFA coating, no metal component exposed to the atmosphere, controller unit can be removed from hood, power cord inserted in a PFA sheath). It does not emit any particles that could contaminate the samples and laboratory, and it can be installed in dust-free laboratories. The safe temperature controller (3 safety fuses in total) allows it to be used intensively.
Several standard models are available and this equipment can be customised.
The controller is not included in the device (see the “Controller” section).
