Modern Water plc (AIM:MWG), the owner of leading water technologies for the production of fresh water and monitoring of water quality, today launches the UVI4000, an ultraviolet (UV) digester that provides a quick and easy way for the UV treatment of aqueous samples. The UVI4000 eliminates organic compounds found in aqueous samples, enabling more accurate sample analysis.
The UVI4000 is a compact, competitively priced bench top device. Whilst other UV digesters may require protective glasses or a fume cupboard, the Modern Water UVI4000 needs no special set-up or protective arrangements. It has a direct sample input/output and is easily connected to a computer via a USB. The user-friendly control program, which displays the process as it happens, allows both the sample output volume (from 10 to 100mL) and irradiation time (1-60 minutes) to be easily controlled.
The UVI4000 can be used with Modern Water’s portable trace metals analyser, the PDV6000ultra, or more generally for a range of analyses that may require UV sample preparation.
Neil Townend, Managing Director for Modern Water’s Monitoring Division, added: “The UVI4000 is a valuable addition for anyone monitoring aqueous samples. It complements the PDV6000ultra, providing an ideal pretreatment method for difficult samples. We use UV in a lot of our own method verification and have received many enquiries from interested end users. After further market research, which found nothing suitable that met our needs, we decided to develop our own cost effective solution.”
