The Astoria2 Analyzer is tough, compact and extremely reliable. The two (2) channel Astoria2 main chassis includes a micropump, cartridge base and two photometers.
Like the Astoria Analyzer, the Astoria2 Analyzer uses micro-Segmented Flow Analysis with all the benefits of that technology are offered:
- Fast analysis rates
- Low reagent use, which is about 1/1o compared to other SFA and FIA systems
- Low-level detection capabilities
- Expanded calibration ranges
- In-line dialysis, in-line distillation and in-line UV digestion techniques
- The use of an optional diluter module
- The use of optional fluorometric, UV and Flame photometric detectors.
The performance of the Astoria2 is outstanding. As an example, for ultra-low-level orthophosphate analysis, we have an analytical cartridge with a working range of 0.0005 – 0.5 mg/L as P.***
***NOTE: For even better detection capabilities (ppt levels), consider using a 50mm Liquid Waveguide Capillary Cell (LWCC) to achieve even better performance. Click HERE
The Astoria2 is also fully adaptable and can be upgraded as needed. It can utilize optional plug-in detectors (fluorometers, flame photometers, etc.) and/or can be expanded to a four (4) channel system by simply adding another Astoria2 module.
Common tests performed on the Astoria2 System for Water and Wastewater analysis are:
- Ammonia by GAS Diffusion
- Cyanide (Post Dist.)
- Nitrate (Cadmium)
- Phenol (Post Dist.)
- T. Nitrogen (Pers.)
- T. Phos (Pers.)
For Wine Analysis:
- Free Sulfite
- Total Sulfite
- Volatile Acidity
Continuing the tradition of reliability and robustness of SFA, the Astoria2 is a strong performer for the modern laboratory.
