ICPMS-2030 Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer
Accelerating Reliable Performance
Unique Combination Eco Mode/Mini-Torch Reduces Running Cost by Dramatically Reducing Gas Consumption
In addition to lower running costs, the environmentally-friendly mini-torch plasma unit, developed by Shimadzu, minimizes the energy (electricity) consumed in producing and maintaining an argon plasma.
Three Factors That Reduce Running Costs
Mini-Torch Plasma Unit
One of the highest costs associated with ICP-MS systems is the large quantity of argon gas they consume. However, Shimadzu's proprietary mini-torch plasma system consumes two-thirds the argon gas (10 L/min) as conventional plasma torches. Consequently, one gas cylinder of argon (~7,800 liters) allows for approximately ten hours of continuous operation.
Eco Mode (5 L/min of Plasma)
During standby when Eco mode is active, the plasma gas flow and power are reduced to 5 L/min and 0.5 kW to minimize the required gas and electricity; however, analysis can be started immediately with no loss of productivity.
Low-Purity Argon Compatible
High-purity argon gas required by conventional systems is no longer necessary. Using less expensive argon gas (99.95%) over a three-year period can reduce costs by several tens-of-thousands of dollars.
Designed for High Stability and Low Running Costs
New High-Frequency Power Supply!
Shimadzu is the world's first ICP manufacturer to develop an all-solid-state high-frequency power supply. Due to Shimadzu's extensive experience, this free-running type high-frequency power supply unit offers the highest output stability. * As of December 2015, based on data obtained by Shimadzu
More Compact Vacuum System!
The smaller three-stage split-flow turbomolecular pump is especially easy to maintain, maximizing up-time of the instrument.
Secondary Electron Multiplier Tube Detector!
The 9-digit dynamic range detector allows for measuring major components and trace components simultaneously with high sensitivity.
Lens System Minimizes Contamination!
Located behind the newly developed collision cell, the focusing lens improves ion transmission efficiency and elimination of light emission from the plasma. * Light emission removal is especially important when combining with Laser Ablation systems.
Newly Developed Collision Cell!
The newly developed collision cell achieves superior sensitivity by providing highly efficient molecular ion removal and high elemental ion transmission using only helium gas.
Newly Designed Interface!
The newly designed interface allows for easy maintainability. All parts can be removed and installed without the need for tools, which helps minimize downtime associated with cleaning and servicing.
High Stability and Low Running Costs
Shimadzu's Proprietary Mini-Torch Plasma System
Based on Shimadzu's extensive experience developing ICP emission spectrometers, Shimadzu's independently-developed mini-torch unit offers unrivaled performance and savings. One of the highest costs associated with ICP-MS systems is the large quantity of argon gas they consume. However, Shimadzu's proprietary mini-torch plasma system consumes two-thirds the argon gas (10 L/min) as conventional plasma torches. Furthermore, during standby when Eco mode is active, the plasma gas flow and power are reduced to 5 L/min and 0.5 kW to minimize the required gas and electricity; however, analysis can be started immediately with no loss of productivity.
Easy-to-Maintain Sample Injection System
Cyclone Chamber Cooled by a Peltier Element
The sample injection system features an electronically-cooled cyclone chamber utilizing a highly efficient coaxial nebulizer and unique overflow drain design. This design combines highly efficient aerosol production while reducing carryover to maximize sensitivity and throughput.
