  • Platinum-based catalyst reactor ensures accurate carbon detection
  • Carrier gas flow optimized for dusty samples
  • Software-based leakage test
  • Optional vacuum system, also available with dust filter class H for potentially harmful samples
  • Single and multipoint calibration
  • Robust design allows usage in production control and laboratory
  • Low maintenance

EasyCheck - Fully Automated Hardness Testing

June 13, 2024

Fully automatic hardness testing

EasyCheck is the new entry-level tablet combination tester that tests for up to 5 parameters. The compact system is 100% compliant with all common pharmacopeias, and excels, above all, through innovative design features and a clear focus on essentials: Its integrated load cell automatically weighs samples, the Oblong Slider® automatically brings evenly shaped oblongs into perfect alignment, and the intuitive touch display allows storage of up to 100 products/methods. The EasyCheck offers a test memory for up to 1 million test results directly on the unit, a 21 CFR Part 11 compliant audit trail light feature and a data export function to CSV- and XML-format.

EasyCheck is your entry-level device for easy, fully automatic and highly precise testing for up to 5 parameters!

EasyCheck is offered in two configuration variants: "basic“ and "Pro“. Both variants are fully focused on our customers‘ requirements. EasyCheck Basic enables testing of round tablets, determining the weight, thickness, diameter and hardness of the tablets and attributing these values to a specific tablet. EasyCheck Pro is suitable for testing round tablets as well as evenly shaped oblongs, additionally offering the capability to measure length. Our sales team will be pleased to discuss the configuration best suited to your laboratory.

Intuitive operation

In the development of the EasyCheck touch display we focused on those features which users find most important: Easy and uncomplicated creation, starting and documenting of test methods. The highly intuitive touch display enables the unit‘s complex functions to be operated and controlled with maximum ease of operation. Measurements can be launched and displayed quickly and easily. For convenient data input (e.g. in order to create new products) the unit now also offers support for USB keyboards – which significantly facilitates data management directly from the device itself.

Storage of test results!

By default, the unit stores 100 products/methods and has a product memory that can hold up to 1 million test results – enabling results from earlier tests to be re-called whenever required.

In addition, extensive integrated calibration functions and the Audit Trail Light feature (logging What, Who, When) ensures that you have access to precise test results and extensive documentation of all working steps at all time - highest user convenience combined with powerful functionality.

Carbon / Hydrogen / Sulfur Analyzer CHS-580A

June 4, 2024

ELTRA‘s CHS-580A is the ideal analyzer for the simultaneous determination of carbon, hydrogen, and sulfur in organic samples.

ELTRA’s 580A analyzers (A = Autoloader) are equipped with an automatic sample loader, allowing for analysis of large numbers of samples without operator intervention. The sample loader is available in two versions to accommodate 36 or 130 crucibles. The CHS-580A is based on the technology of the CHS-580 analyzer and features a vertical resistance furnace with ceramic tube.

The temperature can be set in steps of 1 °C to a maximum of 1,550 °C. Thanks to sample weights of up to 500 mg and more even inhomogeneous materials can be reliably analyzed. The analyzer can be equipped with up to three independent infrared cells according to the user’s requirements, allowing for a great variety of applications.

Product Advantages

  • simultaneous carbon, sulfur and hydrogen determination with minimal sample preparation

easyFILL - Sample Preparation Workflow

June 4, 2024

Sample preparation is a central part of elemental analysis and includes several manual and time consuming steps. Sample weighing, reagent addition, vessel handling, dilution, and cleaning areall processes that impact lab workflow and operator time.

Since its inception, Milestone has been actively addressing these challenges. Vessel handling has been dramatically reduced with the use of Single Reaction Chamber (SRC) microwave systems (ultraWAVE and ultraCLAVE). Vessel cleaning has become more efficient with acid steam cleaning technology (traceCLEAN) or can be even eliminated by using disposable glass vials in the SRC-based systems.

Reagent additionand dilution are other steps that involve operator time,in addition to risk of contamination and exposure to concentrated acid. The easyFILL Automated Dosing Station addresses these latter challenges using a single platform that ensures superior workflow for thelab and higher safety for the operator.

easyFILL is fully controlled by a touch screen terminal with customized software. For routine processes the operator simply recalls a stored method with the type and volume of reagents as well as the number of positions in use. Availability of the reagents in the bottles and the waste volume are tracked by the software, so that the operator knows when it is time to refresh a reagent bottle or empty the waste tank. Moreover the software integrates a guided procedure to calibrate the pump, in just few minutes.

easyFILL offers great flexibility with a wide variety of racks to accommodate most digestion vessels and even two sets simultaneously such as twoultraWAVEracks. The system handles up to six reagents at a time (such as HNO3, H2O2, HCl, HF) matching most application needs. easyFILL comes into play before the digestion for acid addition and after for pre-dilution or for acidification of the digested solutions. Moreover, easyFILL is compatible with ICP autosampler racks to avoid additional handling.

The dispensing accuracy of the easyFILL pump ensures great reproducibility, while the handsoff approach and the use of high-purity PTFE for all the acid lines avoids risk of contamination. Moreover, the automatic cleaning of the lines, built into the sequence, avoids contamination when different reagents are dosed.

Handling of concentrated acids and the use of pipettes under a fume hood could expose the operator to the acids. easyFILL automates these processes and avoids acid handling. The built-in exhaust further enhances the safety of operations by diverting any acid vapours to the lab extraction system.
