PTFE for Mercury Checking

Heavy Metal Analysis with Perfluorinated PTFE Digestion Vessels

Long Live, High Quality: Perfluorinated PTFE Digestion Vessels

Digestion vessels made of isostatically compressed TFM-PTFE last several years without deteriorating in quality while at the same time the containers are characterised by their low cost compared to those made of other materials. For this reason they are therefore the preferred vessels for use in modern laboratories.

Demanding analytic issues such as those involving trace analyses of mercury or other heavy metals can be safely handled by Berghof microwave digestion units with TFM-PTFE vessels. In order to prevent memory effects or contamination additional complex cleaning procedures are generally not required. Users profit from increased productivity and a simplification of daily routine. ●
