ONYX WFX-110/120/130 Spectrophotometer

ONYX WFX-110/120/130 Spectrophotometer


  • High sensitivity, simple and safe operation, low analytical cost, ensured by the patented flame analysis technique (patent No. ZL9210560.7) adopting oxygen-rich air-acetylene flame as the substitution for nitrous oxide-acetylene flame for high temperature element analyses. The flame temperature of the oxygen-rich flame is adjustable continuously between 2300 and 2950℃. (Only for WFX-110)
  • Fully automated microcomputer controlled operation
    1. Automatic wavelength peaking for quick and precise operation.
    2. Automatic spectral bandwidth selection.
    3. Automatic hollow cathode lamp changeover.
    4. Automatic instrument parameter setting, including light source power supply, photomultiplier high voltage supply and background correction energy balance.
    5. Automatic signal measurement and data processing. Fast sampling, photo-electric conversion, noise smoothing, integration, curve fitting, background correction and data display can all be done automatically.
  • Easy and flexible WINDOWS operating system, with multi-windows processing technology to observe the signal profile, the measured results and the calibration curve at the same time. Various analytical programs, data, signals and graphics can all be stored for later use.
  • Fully sealed optical system, keeping the optical elements clean and dry and ensuring long-term high-energy throughput.
  • Optimum vibration-absorbing mechanism, ensuring good mechanical stability of the optical system, reducing vibration interference in graphite furnace operation.
  • Two background correction systems, deuterium arc background correction system (with high performance deuterium arc lamp) and S-H background correction system (only for WFX-110/120) to realize background correction at all wavelengths.
  • Perfect safety protection measures, alarm and automatic safety protection to fuel gas leakage, air pressure deficiency and abnormal flame extinction; spray chamber made of explosion-proof material, all-titanium burner and explosion-proof stopper for flame analyses; alarm and protection function to argon pressure deficiency, insufficient cooling water supply, over-heating and over-current etc. in graphite furnace analyses.
  • Multi-analytical functions, providing flame AA, graphite furnace AA, and hydride AA analysis and flame emission analysis.
