Fusion Fluxer (LeNeo®)
Fusion consists of dissolving at high temperatures a fully oxidized sample in a flux such as nitric acid in a platinum crucible. Fusion is a sample preparation method developed in the mid-50s. It consists of dissolving at high temperatures a fully oxidized sample in a suitable solvent (a flux) in a platinum, zirconium or graphite crucible. The melted mixture is agitated and poured into a mold to create a glass disk for XRF analysis. It can be poured into a beaker to create a solution for ICP-OES analysis.
LeNeo fusion instrument prepares glass disks for XRF analysis as well as borate and peroxide solutions for AA and ICP analysis. This automatic electric instrument has one fusion position and is easy to use. It guarantees safety for the operator as well as superior analytical performances in the laboratory.
