Teledyne Leeman Labs offers a complete line of analytical instrumentation for elemental analysis including Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) Spectrometers, Mercury Analyzers including cold vapor atomic adsorption (CVAA), cold vapor atomic fluorescence (CVAF) and Atomic Absorption with Thermal Decomposition for solid sample analysis.
Teledyne Leeman Labs has manufactured and supported a direct combustion mercury analyzer, the Hydra IIc. By quantifying environmental mercury contamination, the dangers of human and/or industrial exposure can be adequately assessed. The Hydra IIC, due to its modular design, has some unique capabilities such as measuring mercury isotopes. The systems modular design allows for configuration with an ICP-MS system for a streamlined approach to mercury isotope determination in virtually any sample. The Hydra IIC mercury analyzer is now capable of analysis in the standard combustion mode (CAA) and the volatile hydrocarbon combustion mode (CAAVHC). The CAAVHC mode enables the Hydra IIc to determine the mercury concentration in light to heavy petroleum distillates, various refined oils, raw petroleum products and other highly volatile samples. The detection and concertation determination of mercury in petroleum distillates, crude oil and other naturally occurring hydrocarbons is of the utmost importance due to environmental and distillation technological issues refineries face head on every day.
