Discover the New 410 Flame Photometer Range from Sherwood Scientific

publication date: Sep 27, 2023
author/source: Sherwood Scientific Ltd


New 410 Flame Photometer Range now consists of the Classic, Industrial and Scientific models

All three Models of 410 Flame Photometer come with a preloaded filter stick which houses a maximum of three element filters. The filter stick is easily removed and replaced within the chimney housing (no tools required) and as such it is a relatively simple operation to introduce alternative element specific filters. Filters available for use with all Model 410’s include, Sodium, Potassium, Lithium, Calcium, Barium, Strontium, Rubidium and Caesium, the most extensive range available from any Flame Photometer Manufacturer.

The Model 410 Classic Flame Photometer comes with Sodium, Potassium and Calcium filters. The “Classic” design is, in essence, the one developed by Corning some 30 years ago. We still manufacture this highly successful unit due to popular demand. The Model 410 Classic Flame Photometer has Sodium, Potassium and Calcium NIST traceable 1000 ppm standard concentrates for each of those analytes (6 x 100 ml).

The Model 410 Industrial Flame Photometer with digital output, for printer or PC connection, also has Sodium linearisation capability to allow higher concentrations of Sodium (to 50 ppm) to be directly measured using a single point calibration. That facility can be switched on or off according to the operator’s preference or protocol for Sodium determinations. The Model 410 Industrial Flame Photometer has Sodium, Potassium and Calcium specific filters and NIST traceable 1000 ppm standard concentrates for each of those analytes (6 x 100 ml).

The Model 410 Scientific Flame Photometer is delivered with Na, K and Li filters pre-fitted and an appropriate multi-element calibrator in mmol/l. (1 x 100ml). The Model 410 Scientific instrument is also fitted with a Digital Interface and Sodium linearisation facility allowing direct, straight line, calibration of clinically significant concentrations of Sodium, up to 200mmol/l (assuming 1 in 200 dilution), as well as Potassium and Lithium, following suitable dilution. Sherwood’s Model 806 Continuous Flow Diluter, used together with the Model 410 Scientific Flame Photometer, gives nominal sample dilution ratios of 1:200 and 1:50. It has been designed to give consistent dilution of calibrator and samples to the Flame Photometer.

Both Models 410 Industrial and Scientific Flame Photometers can be further enhanced by the use of Sherwood’s Model 410 BlueNotes software and Model 865 Autosampler. Fully integrated and automated systems are possible, even for the Model 410 Classic Flame Photometer via our Update and Automate Modules and packages.
