Digested sludge, waste water and soil samples will typically have large particulates and suspended solids that can induce nebulizer or injector blockage if aspirated directly. Filtration prior to analysis is recommended. Filtration provides numerous benefits, including improved accuracy, optimal instrument performance, better long term stability and reduced system downtime. FilterMate ensures efficient removal of particulates and suspended solids from sample digests, reducing blockages. Push the filter through the sample, and remove the detachable plunger. The filter is left in place. The same tube can be used for analysis by sampling above the filter, eliminating sample transfers.
