.:FP8800 Flame Photometer:.

The FP8800 Flame Photometer is used for simple, precise and inexpensive measurement of concentration of alkaline elements in aqueous solutions for analytical applications in process and laboratory. It was developed especially for industrial applications. It features a PROFIBUS DP and two Ethernet interfaces for computer-aided process control (SPC). Two USB-ports are intended for data export (e.g. in .csv format) or firmware update via USB flash drive. Utilising propane or butane as a fuel gas, the FP8800 gives flame-photometric measuring of up to three elements simultaneously (purified and dried air is required). It also allows 99 definable methods, and stores the last 999 measurements. Measurements can be performed either with or without internal standards. Standard solutions are used for calibration, while control solutions are used to verify results. All samples, controls and standards are presented manually. The device can be customized flexibly to users´ requests.
