Parr acid digestion vessels offer an alternative to the task of preparing analytical samples for analysis. By combining the unique chemical inertness of PTFE with the advantages of a sealed pressure vessel, these convenient vessels offer a rapid procedure for sample dissolution or digestion that has several important advantages over more traditional methods of sample preparation. By providing a convenient means for holding strong mineral acids or alkalis at temperatures well above normal boiling points, these sturdy digestion vessels will:
Accelerate digestions which otherwise would proceed slowly if conducted in an open container at atmospheric pressure.
Permit the use of strong acids, such as HF or aqua regia, which will attack most other conventional containers.
Dissolve analytical samples without losing trace elements and without adding unwanted contaminants from the container itself.
Generate a vigorous chemical action that is a great time saver in analytical procedures.
Obtain complete digestion or dissolution of samples that react slowly or incompletely when treated by other methods.
