    Equipment/facility: Equipment

    • Location

      Land & Water Research Buiding University Park, PA 16802

      United States

    Description

    The mercury analyzer is used to determine mercury concentrations in liquid and solid samples. The DMA-80 is based on the principles of sample thermal decomposition, mercury amalgamation and atomic absorption detection.

    Analytical Method: Mercury in liquids and solids is analyzed by thermal decomposition, amalgamation and atomic absorption spectrometry using EPA Method 7473. Samples must be stored at 4ÂșC.
