RF Coils for ICP-MS
Replacement Agilent 7700, 7800, 7900, 8800, 8900 ICP-MS radio frequency (RF) work load coil, which is part of the shield torch system. The RF work load coil works together with plasma torch, long-life shield plate and bonnet.
The quartz torch for the ICP-MS is located in the center of a cooled copper work coil, through which a high power, high frequency electric current is passed. This creates an intense magnetic field inducing collisions between free electrons and Ar atoms, producing ions and more electrons, and creating or sustaining a stable, high temperature plasma.
