About the Fluxana BORAMAT®

Introducing the VITRIOX® Electric range of automated fusion systems from Fluxana, a groundbreaking solution designed to meet the demands of modern laboratories, providing fully automated “cold to cold” fusion in an enclosed furnace designed to offer the ultimate in precision and repeatability.

Underpinned by years of research and development and Fluxana’s in-depth understanding of industry needs, at the heart of the system is its unique furnace design.

The upright cylindrical furnace with samples centred in the chamber ensures that every fusion is exposed to near-identical fusion conditions.

This results in fusions which are unrivalled for precision and reproducibility. The VITRIOX® Electric system offers a multitude of unique or beneficial features such as its high-speed rotation mechanism for the best sample homogenisation, patented FluxInert® flux-resistant ceramic holders, casting dish monitors to prevent flux spills, and locking safety cabinet for operator protection.

VITRIOX® Electric Fusion Station

An autosampler options allow queueing of sample batches and continuous operation speeds up throughput by allowing simultaneous fusion and cooling of different samples.

If the autosampler extensions available with the standard VITRIOX® Electric are still not enough, then the VITRIOX® Electric 4+ offers an additional dimension: simultaneous fusion of up to four samples per cycle.

The large chamber furnace and 4-position sample holder are designed to increase capacity without compromising the precision and reproducibility at the heart of the VITRIOX® range.

An autosampler system allows queueing of up to 16 samples at a time.

Suitable for any sample types that can be fused, including cements, ores, geological samples, ashes and industrial products, the VITRIOX® electric range provides sample preparation that is more representative, more reproducible, safer, and more efficient.

Underpinned by Fluxana’s vast experience of XRF fusion and available in conjunction with application packages for a wide variety of materials, the VITRIOX® Electric range offers a truly complete solution for XRF fused bead preparation.

"The VITRIOX ELECTRIC 4 from FLUXANA ensures unparalleled consistency and
safety in sample preparation with its advanced electric fusion system for XRF analysis."

Product FAQ's

Any sample that is compatible with borate fusion, including cement, ores, geological samples, manufactured chemicals, and industrial products such as slags and ashes.

By providing uniform, consistent fused beads, it ensures higher accuracy and reliability in XRF analysis results.

Yes, its user-friendly operation and software are designed for easy integration into current laboratory setups and workflows.

The VITRIOX® Electric has extensive safety features. The hot area is enclosed in a glass safety cabinet that locks during operation. Casting dish sensors ensure mould are positioned before starting the fusion, preventing spillages. The furnace is equipped with backup thermocouples to eliminate the risk of furnace overheating.

Minimal training is needed due to its intuitive design and user-friendly software, making it accessible for all levels of laboratory personnel.
