The prepASH 340 series consists of a muffle furnace combined with an analytical balance and advanced software using a touch-screen user interface. Weighing curves are recorded over time for each individual test sample. This permits automatic end-point determination and control during the entirety of the drying and ashing process. No additional computer is needed.
