CARBON 14 SAMPLER WITH 2 VIALS (WITHOUT OVEN) - HAGUE 5000

What do I measure ?

The collected solution is analyzed in a laboratory (spectrometry) to determine the amount of 14C02. The 14C concentration is calculated with the quantity of air which has been sampled

This equipment is designed to capture CARBON gas (CO2 or CO). It can be equipped with a cooling system that will prevent all sample loss due to evaporation in the feeding bottles.

A microprocessor pilots and manages all functioning parameters, insuring thus a total security in its utilization on long periods.

Functioning principle
A flow of atmospheric air, precisely measured, flows through the HAGUE 5000 equipment. The Carbon 14 contained in this air as CO2 gas is trapped in a soda solution or a scintilling liquid in two feeding bottles. Further spectrometry analysis are conducted in a laboratory.
The ratio between radionucleid quantity measured in the bottles and the quantitiy of absorbed air is used to calculate the C14 concentration.

  • A sampling circuit cleaning pump, ref. PRC14

What is the use of the cooling system (option)

Under ambiant temperature, there is always a small evaporation of the solution. This can alterate the accuracy of the sample when the solution isn't collected every day. The cooling system maintains a low temperature in the trapping liquid solution. It can then be collected for further analysis on a week or even month frequency.

What is the use of the pressure regulator (option)

The pressure regulator is mainly used when the equipment is placed in a room where high pressures are applied.

Why isn't there an oven with this model?

Because in some cases, there isn't any need to measure the form of the radionucleid which would be transformed by oxidation.
