Working Area Requirements
The choice of site will be influenced by the dimensions and weights
of the spectrometer and accessories. Other factors are the
environment and the availability of electricity, water and gas
supplies, as well as the need for a suitable ventilation system to
dispose of the exhaust gases. All of these factors are covered in the
following sections.
Pre-installation visits can be made on request, but may be
chargeable.
Introduction
Prior to installation make sure that the proposed area is compatible
with the conditions specified. The laboratory must offer a dry, even
temperature and dust-free conditions, with no possibility of
condensation forming. Sample preparation activities and corrosive
materials should be located in a separate room to avoid problems due
to corrosive fumes.
A comprehensive ‘Risk Assessment’ should be carried out that is
specific to the handling of solvents, samples and sample preparation.
Particular consideration should be taken to avoid direct sunlight,
proximity to heat sources, draughts and vibration. Do not locate the
system where sudden changes in temperature can occur, for
example near a door or window, care should be taken with the
location of items such as air conditioning vents and heating vents.
Location
The instruments are designed for use on a normal laboratory bench.
Ideally the instrument should be placed on a moveable bench with
0.5 meters of access behind the instrument. The mounting surface
must be level and the instruments must not be placed on any type of
cushioning as this could block ventilation.
The mounting arrangements should be capable of supporting the
weight of the spectrometer and its accessories. Make sure that the
working surface is sufficiently rigid to prevent vibration as this may
affect the optical alignment of the spectrometer and accessories.
To avoid the possibility of liquid ingress into the top of the
spectrometer the location should ensure it is not possible to store
sample or other liquids directly above the instrumentation.
Organic or volatile solvents should not be stored, even for a short
time, near the instrument.

Working Area Requirements
Do not position the equipment so that it is difficult to operate the
extraction, electrical supply, cooling water, purge gas and plasma gas
controls.
Environmental
Requirements
The atmospheric temperature requirement is 15 to 35°C (60 to 95°F),
the temperature should not change by more than 2°C per hour.
Atmospheric humidity should be 20 to 80% m/v for an ambient
temperature between 15 and 30°C and 20 to 60% m/v for an ambient
temperature between 30 and 35°C. Atmospheric conditions must be
non-condensing. The instrument room should be at a positive
pressure with respect to rooms with a corrosive atmosphere.
Warning: Argon is an asphyxiant; if the extraction is turned off
sufficient air must be supplied to prevent the concentration of Argon
reaching a harmful level.
Electrical
The spectrometer will require an electrical supply at 200 to 240 VAC
4 KVA 50/60 Hz. The spectrometer will be supplied with a 2.5m
mains cord.
For customers in the USA and Canada the mains cord supplied will
terminate in a NEMA L6-20P Twist&Lock plug. (Coding is black (X
– ac high), white (Y – ac low), green (G – earth/ground).
Figure 4–1. NEMA L6-20P plug for USA/Canada
For customers in the rest of the world the mains lead is shipped with
no terminating plug, but with wires ready for a suitable 20 A plug.
Coding is blue (neutral), brown (live), green/yellow (earth/ground).
Connection to the laboratory supply should be with an appropriately
rated plug conforming to local electrical guide lines and local
requirements. It must be possible to electrically isolate the
instrumentation.

Gas
Requirements
The spectrometer will require argon at 6 bar (87psi) (minimum
quality of 99.998% pure with less than 10ppm water and less than
10ppm oxygen - used for operation and optical path purge). The
maximum flow requirement will be 25 l/min during installation
For purging the optical path in the spectrometer nitrogen at 5.5 bar
(80psi) (minimum quality of 99.995% pure with less than 10ppm
water and less than 10ppm oxygen) can be used, instead of argon.
The maximum flow requirement will be 15 l/min during installation.
For optimum performance, a quality of 99.998% pure nitrogen is
recommended.
If an additional gas accessory is required (optional), clean oil free air
is required at a pressure of 2.5 bar (35psi) and a flow of approx
100ml.min-1
The instrument will be supplied with gas tubing terminating in 6mm
outside diameter gas connections (contamination free, refrigeration
grade copper for the purge and plastic for the plasma gas).
Connection to the laboratory gas supply should be within 1 metre of
the instrument. A regulator should be close to the connection.
Care should be taken to ensure that laboratory gas lines do not
contaminate the gases used for the iCAP.
If liquid argon is not used it is recommended that banks of cylinders
be used with switch over valves so that the gas supplies can be used
continuously.
Warning: Nitrogen and argon gas may cause asphyxiation at high
concentrations, appropriate care should be taken.
PLEASE NOTE: GAS REQUIREMENTS ARE
NOT THE SAME AS FOR PREVIOUS
THERMO FISHER ICP SPECTROMETERS.
Water
Temperature
Control
A recirculating chiller should be used to remove waste heat from the
spectrometer. The water temperature should be set to 5°C below the
ambient temperature.
The water used in the chiller must be distilled water containing 5%
by volume of the correct inhibitor (included with maintenance kit
which can be order from your local Thermo Fisher organisation).
Temperature variation must be less than 0.2°C per hour
The flow requirement of the spectrometer is 5 l/min and a cooling
capacity in excess of 900 W.
Thermo Fisher Corporation
iCAP 6000 Series
Working Area Requirements
A suitable chiller (ThermoFlex 900) can be supplied from your local
Thermo Fisher organisation.
Requirements for ThermoFlex 900:
Power: 230 V, 50 Hz, 7 A; or 115 V, 60 Hz, 13 A
Dimensions: 69.6 x 36.1 x 62.7cm (27.4 x 14.2 x 24.7in)
The spectrometer will be supplied with plastic connecting tubing that
has a 12mm outside diameter.
Connection to the water chiller should be within 3 meters of the
instrument, or insulated tubing must be used.
Waste Storage
Spectrometer
Fume
Extraction
The analysis of a sample, by ICP-OES, usually involves production
of a fine mist from a liquid sample. Waste will be produced that
could be corrosive and toxic, or an organic solvent. An appropriate
container is required that is solvent proof, shatterproof and vented
away from the instrument. Ensure the waste container does not
constitute a spill or trip hazard. It may be necessary to neutralise
waste to prevent any toxin build up. Appropriate facilities should be
provided for the disposal of any waste which should be disposed of
following local procedures and regulations.
This instrumentation is designed for operation in clean air
conditions. The laboratory must be free of all contaminants that
could have a degrading effect on the instrument components.
Dust, acid and organic vapours must be excluded from the work area.
The warranty will be void if the equipment is operated in substandard
conditions.
WARNING: The spectrometer must never be operated without an
effective fume extraction system attached to the torch compartment
chimney.
Hot fumes, which may be corrosive and toxic, are discharged from
the instrument chimney during operation. To ensure a safe working
environment and safe removal of waste combustion products, an
effective extraction system must be installed, this should include
appropriate filtering of hazardous toxic fumes.
The extraction must be capable of exceeding the minimum required
velocity, measured in the centre of the extraction tube at the
spectrometer end, while disconnected from the instrument, as
shown in figure 4-3 below. The extraction tube has an inlet
diameter of 125 mm (5 in).

An iCAP 6000 Duo instrument will require an
extraction of 10 m/s (33 ft/s; 22.4 mph).
An iCAP 6000 Radial instrument will require an
extraction of 5 m/s (16 ft/s; 11.2 mph).
The extraction flow must be adjustable to 50% of the maximum to
allow optimization during installation. This can be achieved with a
butterfly valve, or an adjustable gate as shown in figure 4-3 below.
The extraction system must not be affected by external weather
conditions, or other uses the system may be used for.
