Phoenix II Gas Fusion Machines: Features & Specifications

Versatile and ultra-efficient, gas fusion machines are an industry-standard tool for high throughput sample preparation in inductively-coupled plasma (ICP) and X-ray fluorescence (XRF) applications. The Phoenix line, from XRF Scientific, has set an enviable benchmark for operating performance and sample purity over the last 20 years, servicing almost 1,000 installations around the world.

In 2016, we launched a new generation of gas fusion machines: The Phoenix II range. Building on the demonstrable successes and reliability of the Phoenix brand name, this brand-new instrument introduces new technological innovations that make it the most advanced gas fusion machine available on the market to date.

Modutemp Shaking Electric Fusion Machine: Operating Principles

Electric fusion machines set the benchmark for high-purity sample fusion in X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and inductively coupled plasma (ICP) sample preparation. They utilize all-electric heating elements to generate extremely high continuous temperatures (approx. 1250°C/2282°F) in thermally-efficient heating chambers, eliminating the minute risk of cross-contamination via natural gas combustion.

Standard electric fusion machines operate on a simple principle: sample materials are mixed with a borate flux in platinum crucibles and loaded into the mantle, where they are reduced to a molten mixture by process temperatures before being poured into a platinum mold. There are several mandatory steps within each of these processes; each of which is time-consuming and energy-intensive.Read More

Phoenix GO Gas Fusion Machines: Properties & Applications

Built on a foundation of practical expertise in sample preparation and analysis, the Phoenix GO series of gas fusion machines deliver precision and efficiency in a compact and easy-to-use format. XRF Scientific offers two models: The Phoenix Go 4 and the Phoenix GO S. Each one is the result of robust research and development (R&D) into real-world challenges and requirements in sample preparation.

The Phoenix GO line was designed as a natural succession of our reputable Phoenix II and Phoenix VFD gas fusion machines, which boast 20 years’ of market success and integration into almost 1000 installations worldwide. In this blog post, XRF Scientific will briefly outline the properties and applications of our economical Phoenix GO line in a little more detail.
