Microwave Ashing

Reduce ashing times by up to 97% with a CEM microwave muffle furnace. Many diverse industries use ash analyses for quality control, but conventional muffle furnaces can take hours to ash a sample. Microwave technology can reduce ashing times to minutes, making ash analysis practical for both process and quality control.

CEM’s innovative furnace design ashes up to 15 samples at a time and allows the use any type of crucible normally utilized in conventional muffle furnaces (metal, porcelain, graphite, glass, quartz fiber).
