Microwave extraction system for environmental applications

May 31 2019 Read 440 Times

The overall concept of the ETHOS X for environmental applications has been developed, by Milestone, to fully comply with the requirements of the various, global regulatory bodies. This system has been developed by studying the working routine of several thousand contract laboratories around the world performing solvent extraction on environmental samples, with the aim of helping them, by offering an integrated solution able to render their activity easier, faster and safer.

The Milestone ETHOS X microwave lab station in combination with a completely the new FastEX-24 rotor, has been specifically developed by Milestone to fully accomplish the US EPA method 3546 requirements. This new rotor consists of a 24-position carousel, which holds large pressure vessels made of an innovative and unique inert polymer material. Its unique WeflonTM material provides homogeneous heating and facilitates accurate contactless temperature monitoring of all vessels. Each vessel holds 100 mL disposable vials allowing you to extract 30 g samples while eliminating memory effects and clean up. It offers simultaneous extraction of 24 samples in 40 minutes with minimal solvent usage. The ETHOS X for environmental applications applies to extraction of organic pollutants such as semi-volatile organics, PCBs, PAHs, phenols, pesticides, herbicides and dioxins.
