UltraWAVE Microwave Digestion System from Milestone Inc


The remarkable new UltraWAVE features Milestone’s unique SRC technology in a fully automated benchtop package. Through advanced design and engineering, Milestone has been able to reduce the size of SRC technology, resulting in a small benchtop unit that can fit in even the smallest lab. UltraWAVE digests up to 15 samples – of any matrix – simultaneously. No need to batch samples of the same type into separate runs. Eliminates labor associated with assembly/disassembly of digestion vessels – simply weigh the sample into a glass vial, add acid and place into the sample rack.

UltraWAVE is perfect for labs that have multiple sample types to digest, or for labs that simply want the convenience of SRC technology. The superior digestion quality and minimal blank contribution of the SRC makes UltraWAVE an ideal complement to ICP-MS. The UltraWAVE with SRC technology removes the limitations of conventional closed vessel systems and makes microwave digestion more effective and more efficient than ever before.

The UltraWAVE is a small unit that fits on any benchtop. The cabinet is all stainless steel and the work area is surrounded by a thick acrylic screen which raises and lowers automatically with the top of the SRC chamber. The screen has side doors that allow the operator access to fasten and release the chamber clamp. Interlocks prevent operation unless the chamber clamp is in position and secured. The chamber is 1 liter capacity, manufactured from solid stainless steel, cooled by a water jacket, and fitted with a PTFE liner. The 1500w microwave power source is located at the base of the chamber, and optimized for even distribution of microwave energy. Samples sit in a liquid “load” which insures conditions are consistent from run to run. The SRC chamber is fitted with a transducer type direct pressure sensor and a thermocouple type temperature sensor. This means that every sample is under direct pressure and temperature control, giving unmatched control of the digestion process. Sample racks are available in several sizes, though the most popular is the 15 position rack which holds 15x15mL vials (glass, quartz or TFM). The chamber top is lowered and raised automatically by electric motors and secured by a clamp which is safety interlocked to prevent operation without the clamp in position. Prior to the start of the microwave program, the chamber is pressurized to 40 bar with N2 from a standard gas bottle or lab gas supply. This acts as a “cover” over the vials to prevent boiling and spitting, and eliminate any possibility of cross-contamination.
