NUCLEAR Flame Photometer
Online, four channel Lithium detection
The measurement of lithium at low concentrations within nuclear power stations has been identified as an application perfectly addressed by a new specialty flame photometer – The BWB Nuclear.
Designed specifically for a customers' requirements, this unique flame photometer has 4 active channels for Lithium detection.
Each channel is independently calibrated within the range of interest and this results in an increase of accuracy in keeping with industry demand.
Our simultaneous detection and display from each detection channel satisfies the requirement specifically and the tie of one of the channels to 2 wire 4-20mA output via supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA™) links, completes the unit for online use.
- 4 lithium detection channels focused for high accuracy lithium measurements
- 4-20ma SCADA™ two wire output set to client protocols
- In-built air compressor
- Solutions and labware included
- User selectable decimal places
- Data sharing via pc link with BWB’s FP-PC app
- IQ OQ PQ web-based certification available
- 10,000ppm calibration solution supplied, makes 15 litres of 100ppm solution
- 1ml and 10ml pipettes (10 each), 100x’s 20ml sample cups, 100ml flask
Data output via our FP-PC PC application enables data sharing over the internet or intranet for users sharing information.
Clients who utilize our unique “Collection Cup” feature realise online real time analysis. Optional for ‘online’, continuous measurements, the collection cup turns the BWB NUCLEAR FES into an ‘online’, real time, 24/7 analyser with 4-20mA output linked to a single channel. Via a 2 wire output the BWB FP can seamlessly integrate with any SCADA™ system. Totally unique and available on all models.
