NEW Products for Thermo ® PRO ICP-OES

Glass Expansion offers a complete range of nebulizers, spray chambers, torches, and other accessories for the Thermo ® PRO ICP-OES. Our high performance sample introduction components will reduce your instrument running costs, enhance its performance and improve usability.


All Glass Expansion concentric glass nebulizers (Figure 1a.) feature our unique VitriCone™ capillary construction delivering you the best possible manufacturing precision. Glass Expansion is the only manufacturer that takes thick walled constant-bore tubing and machines the outside to a uniform aerodynamic shape. This guarantees a uniform sample channel, assuring tolerance to high matrix samples and perfect reproducibility.

Samples with residual hydrofluoric acid (HF) require an inert nebulizer such as the DuraMist nebulizer (Figure 1b.) or VeeSpray ceramic nebulizer (Figure 1c.). DuraMist is a concentric nebulizer made of PEEK. It is ideally suited to ICP-OES for high sensitivity and excellent short-term precision with the highest tolerance to dissolved salts of any concentric nebulizer. The VeeSpray nebulizer is made of high purity Alumina grade ceramic. This parallel path nebulizer is virtually unblockable and provides the best tolerance to large particulates and abrasion-resistance.

All the above nebulizers come with our inert, metal-free DC (Direct Connection) gas fittings as standard.

Spray Chambers

The spray chamber is a crucial component of the ICP sample introduction system since it has a profound effect on transport efficiency, precision, and washout. Each Glass Expansion spray chamber incorporates the Helix CT nebulizer interface with ConstantTorque technology, which provides a constant, reproducible, inert, gas-tight seal between the nebulizer and spray chamber each and every time. Glass Expansion offers the following spray chambers to accommodate all kinds of samples and applications.

Figure 2. Glass Expansion Spray Chambers

(a) Single-pass Tracey™

  • Single-pass Tracey™ version for the highest sensitivity.

(b) Double-pass Twister™

  • Double-pass Twister™ version with central baffle that rejects large droplets from the nebulizer aerosol for best short-term precision and lowest interferences.

(c) Inert Tracey TFE Spray chamber

  • Made from totally inert PTFE - impervious to organic solvents and strong acids, even HF.

(d) IsoMist-XS- temperature programmable cyclonic spray chamber

  • The IsoMist XS allows for direct analysis of volatile organic solvents such as naphtha without dilution at a temperature of -25°C, resulting in higher intensities, better precision, and higher accuracy when compared to studies at -10°C.

(c) HydraMist spray chamber

  • The HydraMist can simultaneously determine As, Se, Sb, Tl and Hg using hydride generation and non-hydride forming elements using conventional pneumatic nebulization whilst offering more than a 10 fold improvements in detection limits for the cold vapor elements.

(a) Fixed Standard EMT Quartz Torch

EMT Torches
  • Suitable for clean applications and laboratories with low sample volume workflows.

(b) D-Torch

Photo 30-808-4150 PRO Duo & Photo 30-808-2877, PRO Radial
  • Optional Ceramic Outer Tube
  • Ideal for waste water, brines, fusions, and geological samples where quartz devitrifies rapidly due to the presence of high TDS
  • Ideal for tribology (wear metals) and organic application where quartz prematurely fractures due to thermal shock
