Hydra II AF Gold

Meet the requirements of low-level Hg methods
with a new high-productivity cold vapor atomic fluorescence analyzer

  • Achieve ultralow d.l.s with Hydra's proprietary fluorescence cell and user selectable, automated gold amalgamation system
    • Detection limits well below 0.05 ppt with gold amalgamation and 0.1 without it
  • Minimize the need for dillutions and reruns with Hydra's wide dynamic range
    • 0.1 ppt up to 250 ppb
  • Achieve higher stability
    • Flow through rinse minimizes sample to sample carryover
    • Smart rinse minimizes time associated with the rinse step
    • Automatic baseline correction yields significant stability improvements
  • Run more samples with Hydra's high capacity autosampler
    • Up to 180 samples when amalgamation is used and 270 samples when amalgamation is not needed
    • Huge cups for continuing QCs (e.g. CCB and CCV)
  • Protect yourself from those samples with unexpectedly high concentrations of Hg
    • Hydra II's advanced over-range protection system will prevent productivity loses by preventing system contamination (and reruns) from samples that contain unexpectedly high concentrations of Hg
  • Run your samples faster
    • Analysis times of about 3 minutes per sample with gold amalgamation and under 2 minutes per sample without it
Trouble-free operation
  • Unique over-range sample protection
  • Handle difficult samples with ease with Hydra's advanced gas/liquid separator
  • Built-in maintenance schedule with audio visual help
  • User-friendly software
  • Long life pump tubing
  • Maintenance-free membrane dryer
Top Notch Service
  • Factory trained engineers perform instrument installation and provide on-site training
  • Toll-free technical support
  • Full 1-year warranty
  • Optional on-site 1631 certification support by a Leeman Labs Applications specialist
New Software Tools
  • On-screen navigation
  • 21 CFR 11 tools
  • Flexible report generation and data export

Hydra IIAF Gold is a fully automated cold vapor atomic fluorescence Hg analyzer designed to meet the requirements of all current low-level Hg analysis methods including: EPA methods 1631 and 245.7 as well as EN methods 13506 and 12338. This system delivers a detection limit well below 0.05 ppt when gold amalgamation is used and 0.1 ppt without it. It also provides a dynamic range that extends to 250 ppb and productivity tools that are unmatched by other CVAF instruments. Tools like advanced high concentration protection and an autosampler that holds up to 270 samples.
