Application Note

Analysis of Copper-Gold Ore with the Avio 220 Max ICP-OES

The extraction of metals from ore at a mining plant requires the routine analysis of various samples, which include the feed (crushed ore), the tails (waste ore after processing) and the concentrate (final product). In this work, reference materials were analyzed for copper (Cu), iron (Fe), silver (Ag) and arsenic (As) using the Avio® 220 Max hybrid simultaneous ICP-OES, ideal for laboratories looking to improve productivity for analyses usually performed with flame atomic absorption spectroscopy, which can only measure one element at a time.

Analysis of In-Service Oils Following ASTM D5185 with the Avio 220 Max ICP-OES

With heavy machinery, it is important to assess its status during operation to prevent breakdowns and costly repairs. A key aspect is monitoring the status of the oil or lubricants used to lubricate various components such as engines, transmissions, gearboxes and many other important areas: if the oil degrades too much or becomes highly contaminated, it can damage various components. Because of its importance, ASTM created a method for the analysis of in-service oils: method D5185.

This work demonstrates the ability of the Avio® 220 Max hybrid simultaneous ICP-OES to perform a common implementation of ASTM method D5185 for in-service oil analysis.

Analysis of SiO2- and TiO2-Containing Medications Using ICP-OES Following USP 232/233 Guidelines with Software Designed to Aid in 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance

Since early 2018, manufacturers of pharmaceutical products are mandated to comply with USP <232/<233> requirements around the analysis of elemental impurities in medications. This work demonstrates the ability of PerkinElmer’s Avio® 220 Max hybrid simultaneous ICP-OES to pass validation testing for Class 1 and 2A elements for USP <232>/<233> methodology, while allowing labs to comply with 21 CFR Part 11.

Early Detection of Chloride in 3-MCPD Precursors in Palm Oil through the Analysis of Chloride in Edible Oil with the Avio 220 Max ICP-OES

During the production of palm oil, 3-MCPD forms from the reaction of acylglycerol with the chloride ion (Cl-). 3-MCPD is a potentially carcinogenic compound, with a tolerable daily intake of 2 µg/kg of bodyweight. As a result, the palm oil industry limits the 3-MCPD concentration to less than 10 mg/kg.

Because 3-MCPD only forms in the presence of Cl-, removal of free Cl- is critical. Chloride is introduced from the raw palm fruit, which accumulates Cl- by uptake from the soil, water, and fertilizer. During the processing of the palm fruit, steam is introduced to remove as much Cl as possible. However, if all Cl is not removed, 3-MCPD can be formed in further refining steps. Therefore, after initial processing, the crude palm oil (CPO) must be monitored for chloride content.

This work describes the ability to measure chloride extracted from palm oil by ICP-OES, leveraging the unique capabilities of the Avio® 220 Max hybrid simultaneous system.

Avio Max Series ICP-OES Solid-State RF Generator for Flat Plate Plasma

PerkinElmer's Avio® Max series ICP-OES spectrometers feature a free-running solid-state RF generator for Flat Plate plasma, a proprietary technology which generates a transversely symmetrical plasma, replacing previous helical-coil induction. This approach produces a flat-bottom shaped plasma which prevents sample and vapors from escaping around the outside. With Flat Plate technology, the same robust, matrix-tolerant plasma is generated and maintained with approximately half the argon consumption of helical load-coil systems. Maintenance-free, this innovative approach to RF generation minimizes operating costs without compromising performance.

Flat Plate Plasma Technology on the Avio Max Series ICP-OES

A robust and stable plasma is essential when performing analytical analyses by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES). The plasma is traditionally generated by passing argon through a series of concentric quartz tubes (the ICP torch) within a helical, radio frequency (RF) induction coil. Once established, this highly-ionized argon plasma canreach temperatures as high as 10,000 K, allowing for complete atomization of the compounds within a sample and minimizing the potential for chemical interferences.

PerkinElmer's patented Flat Plate plasma technology for the Avio® Max series ICP-OES provides several advantages over traditional helical coil systems - while capable of accommodating the same sample introduction systems and achieving comparable analytical precision, Flat Plate technology achieves greater plasma robustness and stability because of its unique design, leading to less sample loss, greater analytical signal, lower argon consumption, and less maintenance.

Multicomponent Spectral Fitting on the Avio Max Series ICP-OES

Baseline and interfering element correction (IEC) are used with ICP optical emission spectrometry to correct analytical signals for contributions from the plasma, the matrix or elements other than the analyte. If the contributions from these components are not corrected accurately, the analytical result will be erroneous. Yet both correction techniques rely on interpolated or extrapolated correction factors. Although the two techniques can improve performance with some types of samples, they are not universally applicable.

For greater accuracy, using a full segment of the spectrum around the analyte wavelength is preferred to using just one or two points. To address this, PerkinElmer developed Multicomponent Spectral Fitting (MSF), a standard feature on the Avio® Max series ICP-OES instruments. MSF can significantly improve your analytical results – detection limits, accuracy, and precision.
