The Spectro Arcos has a unique high-resolution optical system and sets new standards in analytical performance: a patented major development with unbeatable resolution (8.5 picometers from 130 to 340 nm), accuracy and stability. 32 linear CCD detectors allow a full spectrum from 130 to 770 nm to be collected and stored in 2 seconds. Spectro’s patented UV-PLUS system requires no purge gas supply or vacuum pumps for UV performance, as the sealed optical path is permanently filled with Argon. Unlike many CCD based detection systems, no sub-ambient cooling is required. The instrument can be provided with radial or axial plasma observation. The radial plasma has better tolerance of high salt content or organics in the sample and ability to handle slurries or suspensions. The axial system can be supplied for those requiring the ultimate detection limits from their ICP-OES.
Additional Spectro Arcos assets include the new, extremely robust, free-running generator with a ceramic torch and solid-state power supply. Spectro’s novel ICAL system logic automatically monitors the system to guarantee optimal operating conditions. The “Smart Analyzer Vision” graphical user interface is characterized by flexibility, clear structure and simple operation.
