Flame Photometer The New BWB-1 Flame Photometer - detect Sodium (Na) - Potassium (K) - Lithium (Li) - Calcium (Ca) - Barium (Ba)

The all new BWB-1 Flame Photometer offers simple and reliable measurements in Flame Photometry offering the user the capability to simultaneously detect Sodium (Na) - Potassium (K) - Lithium (Li) - Calcium (Ca) - Barium (Ba) and display of all 5 elements.

The BWB-1 Flame Photometer is a high quality, high performance instrument, employing modern technology to ensure simple and reliable measurements. As it is supplied as a full package including an air compressor (not affected by high humidity), a gas regulator, filters for Na - K - Li - Ba and Ca, both computer and auto-sampler compatible and finally offers switchable voltage. With this in mind the user has no hidden costs! The Flame Photometer only requires the provision of either propane or butane gas to enable it to be used straight out of its package.
