A.KRUESS FP8000 series Laboratory Flame Photometer

Category: KRUESS Optronic - Optical Laboratory Instruments
Manufacturer: A.KRUESS Optronic
Created by: Keith Gosden


Utilising purified, dried air and propane, butane or acetylene as a fuel gas, the FP8000 series gives flame-photometric measuring of the four elements simultaneously, allows 99 definable methods, and stores the last 999 measurement results. The device can be easily customised to suit user requirements, and for traceability of results, it has the facility to export data via USB port, RS232 or ethernet interface for computer aided statistical process control.

The FP8000 series has four independent measuring channels and an additional separate channel for the monitoring of the flame. Each of these channels can be equipped with the appropriate optical filters. The FP8000 series does not require a spectral reference line, although measurement operation can be carried out either with or without a reference element.

This established and proven measurement technique in combination with modern instrument electronics and innovative process control makes the FP8000 series an essential component of measurement for many applications in a broad range of industries.
