Ultrawave HF applications
The UltraWAVE can be used for digestion of inorganic samples which in some cases require to use HF.
The hydrofluoric acid, due to the reaction with Si or B, is transformed into gas and gets in touch with the base load and the thermowell.
Milestone has developed a PTFE protection (p/n MCL0664A) for the thermowell which allows the use of HF
The PTFE protection has to be installed onto the thermowell whenever the application requires large volume of HF:
