NEBULIZER SPECIFICATIONS




All Burgener Nebulizers use HP PFA Teflon for the inner capillaries (sample passage and gas passage and orifice), except for the Ari Mist which has PTFE inner capillaries, and the X-175, NX-175, SC-175, Mira Mist CE, and Enya Mist which have PEEK inner capillaries and the SS-50 which has SS capillaries.

Most Burgener Nebulizers are 100% Teflon except for the removable gas fittings, but the PEEK Mira Mist and the Ari Mist use PEEK for the outside body, and Teflon for the inner capillaries.

All Burgener Nebulizers use the patented Enhanced Parallel Path Method of creating a mist. None of our nebulizers have suction, so liquids must be pumped to the nebulizers.

All analytical Burgener Nebulizers have nose lengths of 34 mm, nose diameters of 6.0 mm, and overall nebulizer lengths of 65 mm. We supply gas lines with 2 mm X 1 mm Teflon gas lines, attached to the nebulizers by 10/32 Idex fingertight style fittings. We have a wide range of adapters to fit 4mm, 1/8, 1/4 and various quick release gas line attachments used on various instruments.

PFA 250 PEEK & PFA 35 50 - 2000 250 possible
not likely
All Medium Salts, small Particles, good %RSD (< 2%), Excellent sensitivities and low flow capable. Ultra Clean PFA construction.
All wetted parts are PFA.

X - 175 PTFE & PEEK 40 50 - 1000 175 easy All standard Medium Salts, NO Particles, good %RSD (< 1%), Excellent sensitivities.
Designed for ICP/MS low flow applications. Greater stability than Ari Mist HP
Can also do Micro Flow for alcohol, organics: 5 ul/min +
NX - 175 PTFE & PEEK 30 50 - 1000 175 easy All standard Medium Salts, NO Particles, good %RSD (< 1%), Excellent sensitivities.
Designed for NexION and Bruker/Varian ICP/MS low flow applications with 1.2 L/min gas flow at 50 psi. Greater stability than Ari Mist HP
Can also do Micro Flow for alcohol, organics: 5 ul/min +
SC - 175 PTFE & PEEK 50 50 - 1000 175 easy All standard Medium Salts, NO Particles, good %RSD (< 1%), Excellent sensitivities.
Designed for NexION and Bruker/Varian ICP/MS low flow applications with 1.2 L/min gas flow at 50 psi. Greater stability than Ari Mist HP
Can also do Micro Flow for alcohol, organics: 5 ul/min +
ENYA Mist PTFE 50 0.2 - 200 60 easy Straight preferred
such as
Scott Double Pass
Medium Salts, NO Particles, good %RSD (< 2%), Excellent sensitivities but low flow lowers intensities.
Tiny sample passage allows for split flow - pump 30 - 50X what actually arrives in the nebulizer. The rest goes to the drain. Minimizes oxides in ICP/MS.
