Introduction:

This study evaluated the effectiveness of the NovaWAVE microwave digestion system for the digestion of waste water samples.

 

Sample Type:
Waste water- Municipal waste water in house.QC sample.
• Sample volume: 5 ml
• 4 Replicates


Supplies and Reagents:

1) NovaWAVE SA Model*
2) Quartz 75 ml Vessels*
3) Teflon® Caps and Safety Pressure Release Caps at 30 bar(435psi)*
4) PlasmaPURE HNO3 (70%), 1 ml*
5) PlasmaPURE HCl, 1:1 (1 ml)*
5) Analytical Balance 4 Decimal Places, Mettler-Toledo
6) ICP-MS Perkin-Elmer ELAN 6100
7) Mini-X-Flow Nebulizer*
8) 1.2mm Alumina Injector Torch*
9) Baffled Cyclonic Spray Chamber*
10) 10 ml Graduated Cylinder, Corning

*  Manufactured by SCP SCIENCE


 

Sample Preparation Procedure:

The waste water sample was measured in a graduated cylinder and transferred into a 75 ml quartz vessel. After adding 25 ml of DI water, 1 ml of HNO3 and 1 ml of 1:1 HCl:H2O, the sample was digested in the NovaWAVE following the instrument’s heating profile noted below. After cooling, samples were normalized to 50 ml with DI water.

Conclusion:
For determination of trace metals in waste water, the Ministry of Environment of Quebec sets the acceptable range of recoveries at 15%. All recoveries are within this range. Therefore, the NOVAWAVE system is suitable for waste water digestion.
