Description

The NIC WA-5 mercury analyzer is specially designed for measurement of mercury in air and gaseous matrices (eg. hydrocarbon gases like Natural Gas, Shale Gas, LPG/LNG and more) in compliance with the widely established and accepted technique of Gold-Amalgamation and detection by Atomic Spectroscopy ‒ with the choice of either Atomic Absorption (AA) or Atomic Fluorescence (AF). The NIC WA-5 presents many unique levels of automation and functions to improve productivity, improve efficiency, and reduce labor costs. The NIC WA-5 is compact in design to allow for easy transport for field operation and measurements.
