2.1

Suitable work area

Environment control
The area selected for operation of a Varian AA spectrometer system
must be free from drafts, corrosive atmospheres and vibration. Sample
preparation areas and materials storage facilities should be located in
a separate room.
The area should have a dust-free, low humidity atmosphere.
Air-conditioning is strongly recommended for control of the
environment. The instrument should not be located near a window,
door or any other area where drafts may cause unstable thermal
conditions.
Recommended environmental conditions:
For operation:
0 to 853 m (0 to 2800 ft)

853 to 2133 m (2800 to


7000 ft)

10 to 35 C (50 to 95 F)

10 to 25 C (50 to 77 F)

8 to 80% relative humidity


(non-condensing)

8 to 80% relative humidity


(non-condensing)

For storage:
0 to 2133 m (0 to 7000 ft)
5 to 45 C (40 to 115 F)
20 to 80% relative humidity (non-condensing)

Note

Publication date: October 2003

For optimum analytical performance, it is recommended that the


ambient temperature of the laboratory be maintained between
2025 C, and held constant to within 2 C throughout the entire
working day.

2-1

Varian AA Pre-installation

2.2

Workbench
The workbench must be free from vibration and be stable and strong
enough to support the total weight of the equipment to be used. The
bench top should be large enough to permit a free circulation of air
around the main instrument and each of the accessories.
The information provided in table 2.1 will make planning easier.
Portable or semi-permanent trolleys can be used as workbenches but
you must lock the wheels. Accessories such as the SPS Autosampler,
can be positioned on a trolley available from Varian (part number
9910056300). To avoid damage through spillage of samples being
used, the bench top should be covered with a material which is
corrosion resistant and impervious to liquid spillage. Generally, for
comfortable working conditions and ease of access to the instruments,
the workbench should be approximately 700 mm (28") high.
The location of the workbench may be constrained by the need for an
exhaust flue to remove fumes and vapors from the spectrometer
sample compartment (see Chapter 3).

3.1

and flue position

General information
The flame operates at a temperature of approximately 3000 C
(5400 F), and can generate up to 540 kilojoules (510 BTU) per minute.
Exhaust fumes can be toxic or corrosive.
The spectrometer must be located under a flue, which is vented by an
exhaust fan and ducted to an external vent. The exhaust system with
flue, ducting and external vent, must provide a minimum flow of
6 cubic metres per minute (200 cfm) at 16 mm water gauge static
pressure (free delivery of 11 cubic metres per minute).
The exhaust system installation must comply with any rules and/or
regulations that may be imposed by local authorities responsible for
control of facilities and fixtures in the work place.

Publication date: October 2003

3-1

Varian AA Pre-installation

The exhaust fan should be located at least 3 metres (10 feet) away
from the flame. The fan blades must be made of metal. The fan control
switch and running indicator lamp should be located close to the
instrument.
Ducting must be corrosion resistant, fireproof and should be kept clear
of fire alarms, sprinkler heads, heat sensitive devices and combustible
materials. It should rise vertically for at least two metres (6 feet) from
the spectrometer and there should be no tight bends. All ducting joints
must be fitted the hot exhaust gases may melt soldered joints.
The external vent must be fitted with a back draft damper and the
outlet location must be clear of doors, windows and air-conditioning
inlets.
Warning

3.2

An exhaust system must be used with Varian AA flame and


furnace instruments to remove hazardous and toxic gases.

Electrical power supplies

General information
The installation of electrical power supplies must comply with the
rules and/or regulations imposed by the local authorities responsible
for the use of electrical energy in the work place.
All Varian AA instruments are supplied with a 2 metre (6 6") mains
power cord terminated as indicated in table 4.2.
All power supplies should be single phase AC, 3 wire system (active,
neutral and ground, or two actives and ground) and should be
terminated at an appropriate connection receptacle that is within
reach of the system power cable assembly. In areas where
208/220/240 Volt supplies are not normally available in a single
phase configuration, supplies may be taken from two phases and
ground of a three phase system.
A separate connection receptacle should be provided for each unit in
the system (see Table 4.1). Do not use double adapters or extension
cords.
A separate mains circuit individually protected by fuses or circuit
breakers must be used for the GTA accessory. It is preferable for the
GTA and the instrument to share the same phase.

Note

If the system being installed is a Zeeman system, then two separate


mains circuits individually protected by fuses or circuit breakers must
be used one each for the instrument and the Zeeman GTA
accessory. It is preferable for the GTA and the instrument to share the
same phase but separate power supply circuits.
Avoid using power supplies from a source that may be subject to
electrical interference from other services (large electric motors,
elevators, welders and air conditioning units etc.).

** In normal operation, the Zeeman and GTA units will draw surge
currents in excess of the nominal rating. Power supplies to these units
must be isolated from other supplies to the system and should include
delayed action protection devices such as circuit breakers or motor
start fuses.
Surges in the Zeeman instrument occur in the "read" cycle during
atomization and may be up to 28 A for up to 10 seconds in any
1 to 2 minute period.
Surges in the GTA accessory depend on the choice of ramp rate and
programmed temperature and may be up to 35 A for approximately 1
second, reducing to about 20 A for up to 10 seconds, perhaps
repeating every 1 to 2 minutes.

Gas supplies

All gas supply installations must comply with rules and/or regulations
that are imposed by the local authorities responsible for the use of
compressed gas energy in the workplace. The following points should
be considered.

5.1

Storage of pressure cylinders


Cylinders containing gas under pressure should be firmly secured to a
rigid structure, and the storage area must be adequately ventilated.
Acetylene cylinders should always be stored and moved in an upright
position to avoid acetone saturation of the fibrous safety disc and
acetone contamination of the acetylene flow. Acetone contamination
will cause erratic analytical results and may damage the instrument.
Such damage is not covered by the instrument warranty.
Never locate gas cylinders near a source of ignition, or in a position
that is subject to direct heat. Gas storage cylinders often incorporate a
pressure release device which will discharge the gas at a
predetermined temperature, usually around 52 C (125 F).
If gases are to be plumbed from a remote storage area to the
instrument site, ensure that the local outlets are fitted with stop valves
and pressure gauges which are easily accessible to the instrument
operator. Stop valves must be rapid action shut off and should be
mounted near the side of the instrument, not behind it and never near
or above the sample compartment. The gas outlets must be provided
within 1.5 metres (5 feet) of the instrument.
If a pressure regulator is used at a local outlet, it is necessary to
ensure that its input pressure is always at least 40% greater than its
output pressure under all combinations of input pressure and gas
flow. The effect of supplying multiple instruments through long
supply pipelines must be taken into consideration.

5.2

Gas connection fittings


Gas fittings may vary among suppliers. If you have difficulty
obtaining the correct fittings for direct connection of gas supplies to
the spectrometer, please contact your Varian Sales and Service Office
for assistance.

5.3

Permitted gas supplies


Only three gases are specified for use in a flame instrument. They are
air, nitrous oxide and acetylene. Varian will not install a flame
instrument where other gases may be provided for connection to it.
The GTA accessory can use air or other gases as an alternate gas but
does not use nitrous oxide and acetylene.
In planning your gas reticulation scheme, please observe the following
points:

Warning

5-2

Never run rubber tubing through a wall or across a floor.

Never use rubber tubing outdoors.

Acetylene tubing must be stainless steel or black iron.

Use only refrigeration grade copper pipe for other gases


plumbing grade has oil and grease residues.

Do not cut off the factory-fitted hose connectors. These are


needed to connect to test equipment gas-handling jigs.
Their removal will cause extra expense during service calls.

Use only 3/8" tube or 1/2" pipe to minimize pressure drop.

Fit pressure gauges on a wall at the supply point, and ensure that
they are visible to the operator.

Place cut-off valves in a position that can be reached safely in


case of a fire.
Varian AA instruments are designed for flame operation with
acetylene and air, or acetylene and nitrous oxide, only.
The use of unspecified gases for flame operation of the
spectrometer is extremely hazardous. You will risk fire
and/or explosion, which could result in death or serious injury
to personnel, and damage to property.
Use only the specified gases and ensure that the installation
complies with the relevant rules and regulations as laid down
by the appropriate authorities in your region.

Connection, Female Union, Size 9/16" - 18 UNF. The hose is 1.8
metres (6 feet) long. Connection adaptors are supplied to suit different
locations as illustrated in figure 5.1.
The air supply must be regulated to maintain the instrument operating
pressure over the full range of normal flow rates. A dual stage
regulator should be used. This is most important for instruments with
programmable flow rates because a slow response from the regulator
may cause the instrument to shut down during a demand for
increased flow. A shutdown of this kind is safe and does not imply a
fault in the instrument, but will interrupt your work.
If you choose to use an air compressor, it must be installed in a
remote location where its intake is fed from a dry, dust and vapor free
environment. The control switch and pilot light should be mounted
close to the instrument.
Where the air supply is derived from a general purpose in-house
system or from a dedicated air compressor, a filter unit must be
installed. If your location has high humidity, the air supply should
include a dryer or condenser device.

fault in the instrument, but will interrupt your work.
Acetone, the acetylene packaging solvent, can damage neoprene,
rubber and plastic components of the instrument. It can also absorb
ultraviolet light and may affect analytical performance. High levels of
acetone will reduce the flame temperature, which may affect
analytical results at many wavelengths. Acetone may be entrained in
the acetylene gas at low cylinder pressure.

Note

You must replace the cylinder when its pressure falls to 700 kPa
(100 psi) to prevent acetone from being entrained in the acetylene gas
and causing damage to the instrument. Acetone may also be entrained
if the flow rate exceeds 1/7th of the cylinder contents per hour. Your
supplier can advise you on an appropriately rated cylinder.
Instrument-grade acetylene is free of phosphorus, arsenic and sulphur
contaminants, which are residues of the acetylene generation process
(calcium carbide and water). Phosphine content is also minimized.
Phosphine contamination will depress calcium, strontium and barium
absorption signals. Broadband emission from phosphine combustion
products can interfere with sodium and potassium analysis.
Acetylene is unstable as a free gas under pressure and it should not be
piped at pressures exceeding 105 kPa (15 psi). Explosive acetylides
can form if acetylene contacts unalloyed copper, silver or mercury.

Warning

Publication date: October 2003

Never use copper tubing or tubing of alloys with more than


65% copper content. With these materials, copper acetylide
could be formed and there is the risk of spontaneous fire or
explosion.
Always use stainless steel, or black iron pipe for fixed supply
lines, and test for leaks at regular intervals. The installation of
acetylene gas must comply with the rules and regulations of
the relevant local, state and federal authorities.

Supplementary information

Waste fluids
The Varian AA flame instrument only atomizes a small percentage of
the sample taken up. The excess liquids from the spray chamber must
be drained into a waste vessel. Suitable tubing is supplied with the
spectrometer for use with inorganic solvents. If you use organic
solvents, you will need different tubing, suitable for the solvent(s) of
choice. See section 6.2 below.
The Varian AA instrument also needs a drain or a sump for disposal
of waste liquid during rinse cycles when flame or furnace
autosamplers are used.
A chemically inert container, not glass and not narrow-necked, to
hold approximately two litres (4 pints) of waste must be provided by
the instrument user. It should be located underneath the sample
compartment (or on the right side of the spectrometer), where it is
protected by the bench and in full view of the operator.

6.2

Special arrangements for use with organic solvents


If organic solvents are used in a flame system, the following special
option fittings are recommended.

A suitable outlet for the liquid trap vent pipe must also be supplied. A
venting tube should be connected to the vapor vent (the upper nipple)
on the liquid trap when you are analyzing organic or toxic liquids.
This tubing should be led out from the sample compartment, parallel
to the drain tubing, and MUST slope downwards to enable any liquid
overflow to drain out and prevent the tubing from becoming blocked.
Do NOT lead the vapor tube to the waste vessel.
Please note the following points:
The venting tube cannot be routed upwards within the sample
compartment because the heat from the flame will melt it.

Publication date: October 2003

6-1

Varian AA Pre-installation

If organic vapors are vented to the exhaust system, they may be


ignited by the flame and so cause damage to the exhaust system.
Local environmental protection laws may prohibit toxic vapors from
being discharged in to the general atmosphere or into a working area.
If necessary, an active exhaust system should be used to draw away
toxic vapors and neutralize them. If you are not analyzing solutions
of a toxic nature, leave the vapor outlet on the spray chamber
uncovered.

may exceed the maximum permissible pressure.
The temperature of the furnace coolant is detected by an interlock
device which will stop operation if the cooling water reaches 40 C
(104 F). Where the ambient temperature is high or where a low
capacity water cooling system is used, you may need to include some
form of heat exchanger to maintain the recommended water inlet
temperature.
Provided that the flow rate can be maintained above 1.5 litres per
minute and there is no back pressure at the outlet, the cooling water
supply may be taken from an in-house domestic water system, if local
regulations permit.

An alternative is to install a small recirculating system, which should


have a tank capacity of at least 100 litres (22 Imperial gallons). The
tank should be covered to prevent contamination by dust and other
impurities and to minimize evaporation loss. Algicide should be used.
A heat exchanger may be necessary. Any such installation must be
capable of extracting 950 W at 20 C derated by 17% for 50 Hz
operation.
A refrigerated water cooler has the advantage of not needing a large
held volume of water. There are many types available. When choosing
a water cooler, check that the specifications meet the requirements of
the GTA.

Equipment on-site

Note

8.1

The Varian Customer Service Representative cannot start the


installation until the instrument is removed from its packing and
pallet and located on the intended workbench.

Insurance after delivery


As the carriers liability ceases when the equipment is delivered,
Varian recommends that you arrange separate insurance that will
cover transportation from the delivery point to the installation site.
The delivery point will vary according to the carrier, the shipping
method, and in some cases the terms of sale. Some carriers will only
deliver to their own distribution centre, while others may deliver to
your off-loading bay. Few will deliver to the actual installation site.

8.2

Transit damage
Transit damage can be obvious or concealed, and in either case will
only be admitted by the carrier if it is reported as agreed in the terms
of the carrier's agreement. For any claims against damage in transit,
the following general rules apply.

Publication date: October 2003

1.

Before accepting delivery, you should inspect the packages for


signs of obvious damage. The nature of any obvious damage
must be noted on the carriers way-bill, and then must be
countersigned by a representative of the carrier.

2.

Within the time limits stated in the terms of conditions of


carriage, a further inspection must be made for concealed
damage. If any damage is found at this stage, the carrier must be
notified in writing and all packaging material must be retained
for subsequent inspection by a representative of the carrier.

3.

A copy of any damage report must be forwarded to the Varian


Sales Office dealing with the supply of the equipment.

8-1

Varian AA Pre-installation

Varian instruments are inherently robust, and the packaging is


designed to prevent internal damage when shipped or handled in
accordance with the labels and warnings. However, it must be
remembered that the contents form part of a precision measuring
system and all packages should be handled accordingly. In transit,
sharp jolts and shocks must be avoided and the packages must not be
inverted, or tilted unnecessarily. Markings on the shipping cartons
generally indicate which side of the package should be kept at the top.

8.3

Warning

Many of the packages are large and heavy. To avoid injury to


personnel, or accidental damage to the equipment, always use
two or more people when lifting equipment into position.
Never attempt to lift packages alone.

Warning

To prevent death or personnel injury from accidental contact


with high voltages within the instrument, do not remove any
of the instrument covers. Do not connect the instrument to
the mains supply.

In-house transit routes


In-house transit routes must be carefully considered. Vertical,
horizontal and turning clearances should be calculated from the
shipping crate dimensions of the spectrometer, which is the largest
unit in any system arrangement.
Figure 8.1 provides an indication of the minimum turning clearance
and minimum door width required for the spectrometer in its shipping
crate.

Operator training

Operator confidence when using atomic absorption instrumentation is


essential to obtain accurate and reliable results. The Varian Customer
Service Representative who installs your equipment will demonstrate
the basic operating procedures while conducting the installation
performance tests. The service representative is not necessarily
experienced in more complex analytical procedures and is not
authorized to conduct extended training. The controlling software
runs under the Microsoft NT4, 2000 or XP operating systems. The
service representative will explain elementary operations but is not
authorized to conduct extended training on the Windows operating
system.
Your operators will gain most from observing the installation and will
be more immediately productive if they have already been trained.
Varian recommends that you take advantage of special training
courses that are conducted at various locations by the Varian
Technical Support Organization.
In some locations, it may be possible to arrange for operator training
after the installation, using your own instrument. Please contact your
Varian Sales and Service Office if you would like to arrange this.
