Features and Functions


The flame atomiser offers three flame options:
Air/acetylene is the standard configuration with the N2O/acetylene and Air/LPG as options.

The Air/Acetylene flame uses a 100mm single slot burner for the standard configuration.
The high sensitivity (Cu 2ppm >0.280abs) is due to the efficiency of the fixed position glass nebuliser fitted as standard. An acid resistant replacement is available as an option.
The flame can be easily set from blue lean flame through stoichiometric to fuel rich by means of com-puter control.

The N2O/Acetylene flame uses a 50mm single slot burner and is available as an optional extra.
This flame configuration is used to measure elements less prone to ionization such as: Aluminium, Tin, Titanium, Calcium, Vanadium and Molybdenum.
Switching from Air/Acetylene to N2O/Acetylene to Flame Off is fully controlled by the AAWin3.0 software.

This flame uses a 3 slot burner and with the Iow pres-sure requirement it is also much safer to operate.
Due to the Iow temperature of the flame it is ideal for analysing alkali metals such as: Potassium, Sodium and Lithium, especially when used in the emission mode.

Some remote areas of the world have difficulty obtain-ing Acetylene gas of a high enough purity to operate the flame correctly, LPG can give a real alternative and offer comparable results for most elements throughout the wavelength range.


  • PC System is used to control the instrument. Pre-installed AA-Win 3.0 software, user manuals, cook book and Windows operating system.
    AA-Win 3.0 software provides full control of the in-strument and autosampler with easy method change for each technique.
  • Automatic 8 Hollow Cathode lamp turret controlled and optimised by the AA-Win 3.0 software. Operating lamp current and warm-up lamp current can be individually controlled to eliminate drift commonly associated with lamp warming.
  • D2 lamp background correction system fitted as stan-dard to all configurations. High energy D2 lamp and adjustable beam splitter mirror are optimised by the AA-Win 3.0 software.
  • Self Reversal background correction system fitted as standard to all configurations. The high performance background system uses the same hollow cathode lamp as installed for the analysis. Minimum extra components are required and optical alignment is very simple. Self Reversal can be used for any element at any wavelength making it extremely versatile.
  • High precision minimal optics ensures maximum light throughput to the computer controlled Czerny-Turner monochromator.
    A universal autosampler is available as an optional accessory which is conveniently mounted on the front of the AAS-4200 Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer Graphite Furnace instrument.
  • Absorption and Emission modes are standard features in the AA-Win3.0 software as well as peak height, peak area, sequential and manual integration modes.


  • Pressure monitoring for all gases
  • Burner Identification
  • Flame sensor
  • Drain Trap level Sensor
  • Gas Leak Detector
  • Over Pressurein Premix
  • Safety Cut off Switch


  • The integrated Graphite Furnace Atomiser is available in AAS-4200.
  • In the AAS-4200 instrument the graphite furnace head is fixed behind the flame atomiser assembly and is motorised into position by a simple operation in the AA-Win3.0 software. The positions for the flame and graphite are saved making it easy to swap between modes for different analysis.


  • The temperature of the transversely heated graphite tube is accurately controlled by means of a precision feedback sys-tem and has been designed to reduce analytical problems normally associated with this type of technique.
  • Pyrolytically coated graphite tubes are used as standard and are manufactured to improve performance as well as increase the analytical life.
  • Platform graphite tubes are supplied as standard and will accept volumes up to 20ul. Non-platform graphite tubes are also available as an optional extra.
  • Up to 10 heat stages are available for the programming of the graphite atomiser. These can be set and stored within the AA-Win3.0 software.
  • The graphite tube is held in position by means of a gas piston. Replacement of the graphite tube is performed by a simple command in the AA-Win Software.
  • The graphite tube is efficiently cooled by an additional water circulation system (supplied separately).


  • Argon Gas pressure Sensor
  • Water flow sensor
  • Over Temperature Sensor
  • Broken graphite tube protection

AA-Win Pro Software is a powerful and intuitive software product designed to allow control and data acquisition from the AAS-4200 Atomic Absorption Spectrometer.

The AA-Win Pro software allows the Analyst to control all aspects of their analytical method while providing an extensive range of tools for data collection, storage and interpretation.

The software interface consists of three key workareas, whilst having toolbars to access many others. These work areas allow the user to view real-time signal acquisition, up-to-date display of calibration curves and a flexible sample table.

Lamp turret setup, operating and warm-up currents, along with the desired analytical wavelength are easily selected in the configuration.
