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
