BENEFITS
US EPA AND ASTM METHODS ALREADY
AVAILABLE

NO SAMPLE PREPARATION
The DMA-80 enables the operator to do direct
determination of total mercury without the need for acid
digestion or other wet chemistry sample treatment prior
the analysis; this means no hazardous chemicals to
purchase, handle and dispose.

The DMA-80 is fully compliant with US EPA method


7473 (Mercury in solids and solutions by thermal
decomposition, amalgamation, and atomic absorption
spectrophotometry) and with ASTM method D-6722-01
(Standard test method for total mercury in coal and coal
combustion residues by direct combustion analysis).

HIGH PRODUCTIVITY
Typical analysistime is 5 minutes. A dual-trayautosampler
allows for unattended analysis of multiple samples.

EASY MAINTENANCE

EXTREMELY LOW DETECTION LIMIT

EASE OF USE

All the DMA-80's components, such as the catalytic


furnace, amalgamator and spectrophotometer, are
easily accessible for routine maintenance and cleaning.

Milestone's Tri-Cell DMA-80 combines an innovative


mercury measuring system with a unique optical path
spectrop hoto meter, achieving a detec tion limit of
0,00 15 ng of mercury.

All you need to do is weigh your sample, load it onto the


built-in auto-sampler and press 'start'. The DMA-80 is
so simple to use that it can also be operated in the field,
not only in the analytical laboratory.

MATRIX-INDEPENDENT RESULTS

LOW RUNNING COST

The DMA-80 is matrix-independent and can analyze


both solid and aqueous samples with equal efficiency.
A single method can be used to process organic and
inorganic samples.

The DMA-80 has been shown to save laboratories


more than 70% in costs when compared to traditional
mercury analysis techniques like CV-AAS.

LARGE INSTALLED BASE


With hundreds of DMA-80's installed globally, Milestone
is the acknow ledged market leader in direct mercury
analysis. Our extensive experience enables us to provide
the highest level of applications and suppo rt.

PRIN CIPL ES OF OPERATION

Milestone's OMA-80 is a direct mercury analyzer


which uses the principle of thermal decomposition,
amalgamation and atomic absorption.

Sample boat

r-~-~~~~~== I -. _... -J~ Autosampler:;


DMA-80 schematics

The OMA-80 can analyze both solid and liquid matrices


with equal precision. Analysis takes only 5 minutes per
sample and does not require any sample preparation.

..

Time(minutes)

All mercury is released from the sample through thermal


deco mposition. This eliminates the need for any sample
preparation and, subsequently, purchasing, handling
and disposing of hazardous chemicals.
Because no sample preparation is required, the typical
bottleneck in the analytical laboratory is eliminated.

Therefore, analysis is reduced to only 5 minutes per


sample, and at a fraction of the cost typically associated
with traditional mercury techniques, such as CV-AAS,
ICP-AES or ICP-MS.
Typical applications that the OMA-80 is used for include
environmental, geoc hemical, petrochemical, food and
feed, clinical and polymer samples.

MEMORY EFFECT

The DMA-80 produces accurate results over a wide


dynamic range, on a variety of different matrices.
The results below indicate analyses on certified
reference materials with mercury concentrations
ranging from 5 ~ g/kg to over 25 mg/ kg.

The DMA-80 provides reproducible results over a broad


range of matrices, including polymers and biological
samples, and over a wide concentration range.

The DMA-80 does not suffer from memory effect;


furthermore the instrument's operating software features
the exclusive AUTOBLANK function, through which the
operator presets a satisfactory blank level.

If that level is exceeded, the instrument will automatically


run blank cycles until the preset blank level is obtained.
This is a very important feature particularly when
analyzing series of unknown samples, The graphic
above (left) illustrates the absorbance peak for a 1 ppm
mercury solution and (right) the subsequent profile of
blank run.

SAMPLE WEIGHT

SAMPLE MATRIX

DIFFICULT SAMPLES

The DMA-80 can accommodate samples sizes of up to


1.5 grams. This is particularly important for the analysis
of heterogeneous materials and for samples with a very
low mercury content.

The DMA-80 produces quality results regardless of the


sample matrix. The instrument can be calibrated using
aqueous standards and then be used in the analysis
of organic and inorganic solid samples. In most cases,
one method can be used to analyze a variety of different
matrices making the DMA-80 extremely easy to use.

Due to their high reactivity, the analysis of samples


such as naphtha, lubricant oil and crude oil can be
problematic.
The DMA-80's software allows the operator to create an
appropriate temperature profile to ensure smooth sample
analysis.

Quartz sample boats.

User friendly maintenance andcleaning

The DMA-80 can be operated through a dedicated ,


proprietary touch screen terminal or by using a standard
PC. The EasyCONTROL operating software co ntrols all
the system functions, and provides valuable feedback
on the instrument's performances . The software
is compatible with various Laboratory Information
Management Systems (L1MS) and is fully compliant with
FDA regulations 21 CFR Part 11.

Large volume quartz samples boats (1500 ~ L) are


available for the DMA-80 . They offer several benefits
including: lower memory effect, better reproducibility,
larger sample size and longer lifetime.

The DMA-80 has been designed and engineered to make


routine maintenance and cleaning as easy as possible.
Components like the catalyst and amalgamator have an
extended lifetime and sample boats can be used for up
to thousands of analyses. This, in combination with the
fact that the DMA-80 only requires a carrier gas, results
in low operating cost s when compared to other mercury
analysis techniques.
