No sample preparation
The DMA-1 does not require any sample preparation or other wet chemistry prior the analysis. This means ease of use, low running cost and no need for hazardous chemicals to purchase, handle and dispose. The cost of analysis is minimized thanks to the speed of analysis, catalyst and amalgamator lifetime, sample boats durability and the possibility to use air as combustion.
The DMA-1 is operated via a compact control terminal with easy-to-read, bright, full-color, touch screen display or, alternatively, by a Windows-based computer.
Official methods compliance
The DMA-1 has been used to develop the US EPA method 7473. It is furthermore compliant with ASTM method D-6722-01 and ASTM method D-7623-10.
