Aquamax KF PC with Evaporator

Heating module for Oils and Solids

Gas Extraction - the ideal method to handle oils, solid and pasty substances. Different types of heating modules can be combined with the basic module. The sample is heated out by either isothermally at freely definable temperatures or with individual set-up temperature programs.
  • Sample administration: Solids in sample containers or liquids with syringe
  • Sample amount: Solids: 10 µg up to approx. 1 g
  • Oils: up to 20 ml
  • Heating temperature: Up to 300 °C, isothermal or temperature program
  • Type of result: µg, µg/L, mg/L, ppm, %, by using the formula generator
  • Power supply: 115 - 230 V, 50 ... 60 Hz
  • Dimensions: approx. 100 x 400 x 200 mm (L x H x D)
  • Weight: approx.5 kg

Gas Extraction - the ideal method to handle oils, solid and pasty substances. Different types of heating modules can be combined with the basic module. The sample is heated out:
  • either isothermally at freely definable temperatures or
  • with individual set-up temperature programs, e. g.
    • freely definable temperature gradients
    • time-controlled temperature programs for step-by-step heating
    • titration-controlled temperature programs

Using an appropriate syringe, oil samples are injected through the septum into the heating oven. It is possible to apply sample volumes ranging up to 20 ml.

The high sensitivity of the Aquamax KF system allows precise detection of the moisture down to 1 ppm range. After analysis, the used oil sample flows off through the valve.

With closed-loop carrier gas circulation, any additional gas drying is no longer necessary: the carrier gas is continually titrated to dryness within the closed loop. The total dryness of the gas enhances the moisture desorption from the sample.

Moreover, sensitive samples can be heated out very gently. Moisture liberation becomes possible even at ambient temperature. All these advantages result in reducing reagent consumption considerably.

Heating chambers for solids are useful especially for small amounts of samples (1 - 10 mg sample) due to small blank value of the oven. Heating with temperature program reveals in which way the moisture in question is bonded to the sample substance. You can distinguish between chemically bonded water of crystallization, adsorbed surface water, or water formed by other chemical reactions.
