FREEIntroduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

Controlling costs associated with the operation of ICP-OES instruments is a continuing challenge for laboratories, regardless of application, given the variety of operational, maintenance and hidden expenses that dramatically increase their total cost of ownership.

Traditional spectrometers bear the burden of a number of inherent problems in their design. A new whitepaper, titled “How New Spectrometer Technologies Substantially Cut Operating Costs,” explores how engineering innovations have addressed design issues to enable significant savings while improving performance. The advancements, detailed in the paper, include:

  • New system designs that deliver improved uptime and throughput while reducing operating costs.
  • A unique sealed optical system that abolishes the need for the constant purging of argon or nitrogen, eliminating purge gas consumables cost and purging delays.
  • Improved spectrometer technology that removes the need for a separate, external, water-based cooling system along with the associated purchase, installation, power and maintenance costs.
  • Innovations in optical technology that improve performance measures such as sensitivity and stability.
  • A robust generator design that provides ample power reserves, so it can handle extreme plasma loads, and adapt to quickly changing demands.

Such advancements, according to the whitepaper, cut operating costs by enabling easier, less expensive installation, operation, and maintenance, while improving both ICP-OES performance and usability.
