Multiwave 5000 microwave reaction system for digestion of samples.

Multiwave 5000 (extremely versatile microwave system)

Multiwave 5000 is a microwave reaction system for the digestion of samples (varying in difficulty or volume), evaporation, acid leaching, and extractions. Thanks to the flexible platform concept, you can configure Multiwave 5000 to be the best fit for your applications.
Over 40 years of experience in sample preparation have been incorporated into the development of Multiwave 5000 to meet the needs of today’s lab chemists.

Multiwave Go Plus (small affordable microwave system)

The Multiwave GO Plus microwave digestion system with the patented Directed Multimode Cavity (DMC) provides the best of both monomode and multimode microwaves. The microwavefield adapts itself to the number of filled or empty positions and the filling state of the vessel – that is truly innovative. 

Multiwave 7000 (top-end PDC microwave system)

Multiwave 7000 combines the well-known concept of Anton Paar’s HPA-S with modern, well-engineered microwave technology, representing a new level of microwave digestion. With the novel pressurised digestion cavity (PDC) temperatures up to 300°C and pressures up to 199 bar can be achieved. This ensures complete digestions of all kinds of samples such as food, environmental, polymer, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, geological, chemical, and petrochemical samples. 

BM500 Ball Mill

BM500 Ball Mill for quick processing of dry, wet, and even cryogenic milling procedures.

Enjoy the benefit of milling samples to specific particle sizes that also ensures better homogeneity in samples, ranging from soft, fibrous to hard and brittle materials, resulting in better reproducibility of results especially when pressing pellets for XRF analysis. With a simplified handling principle, it enables the quick processing of dry, wet, and even cryogenic milling procedures.  Depending on your material and preparation settings a final particle size of around 1µm is achievable.
