Flame photometers- what do I need to get started?

Flame photometers function on principle of atomic excitation and de-excitation followed by light emission to measure the levels of particular elements (including K, Na, Li, Ca and Ba). Over particular ranges, the intensity of the light emission is directly proportional to the number of atoms of that type present in the sample. Also known as flame atomic emission spectroscopy, it is a branch of ...

Determination of Calcium in Milk using a Flame Photometer

The team at Jenway have described a method to determine calcium level in milk samples using their PFP7 Flame Photometer. Calcium is usually present at about 120mg per 100ml milk, or 0.11%, but this varies with the type. The method and equipment required are summarized below to test milk samples for calcium content.   [caption id="attachment_10449" align="aligncenter" width="422"] ...

How can I determine the amount of available potassium in soils?

Soil is a mix of organic matter, minerals, air, liquids and other organisms. It is vital in supporting life on Earth by allowing plant growth as well as storing, supplying and purifying water. As rocks break down into particles of sand, silt and clay mineral particles are released and they are then available to support plant life. It is important to determine the amount of potassium naturally a...

How can I test Sodium? Is there a test kit for sodium?

Testing for Sodium is often required in food or blood samples. Some water samples may need to be tested, particularly those where a softening system is used. Due to the nature of sodium's chemistry, it cannot be tested by a simple test kit method. We've taken a look at why this is, and explored what options are available for testing sodium.

What to do if your PFP7 flame photometer isn't lighting

A question often received by the Technical Support team is what to do if the flame goes out after the ignition switch is released. If you find this is the case, first of all please ensure the burner is the correct way round with the flat side pointing up and the cone pointing into the mixing chamber. The correct orientation is shown in the Fig. 1. [caption id="attachment_5121" align="alignce...
