GERMAN GRAPHITE TUBES FOR GRAPHITE FURNACES
GBC, HITICHI, PERKIN ELMER, THERMO (TJA & UNICAM) and VARIAN GRAPHITE CUVETTES (TUBES) & MOUNTING CONES This graphite is the same high quality German manufactured graphite tubes and mounting cones/electrodes that instrumentation manufacturers use. Do not confuse these parts with cheap replacement parts manufactured by the lowest-bidder. Like most of our parts inventory, we have the most affordable prices around. Certain items are $100 less an item than leading competitors! In addition, we charge no shipping for UPS ground orders of graphite.

ICP & ICP/MS EXPENDABLES
We sell and service ICPs so we know what works best. We are an authorized distributor for Glass Expansion because they offer the best products to suit your needs. Based out of Australia, they supply parts for all major manufacturers of ICPs and ICP/MSs. We have competitive pricing and we usually ship the same day because we keep most parts in stock. Glass Expansion guarantees your satisfaction or your money back.

STANDARDS & HIGH PURITY ACIDS FOR AA & ICP ICP/MS
Tired of getting standards that are well into their expiration date? Do you need a custom ISO certified check standard? All of our standards are made by High Purity Standards. With 20 years in the instrumentation business, they offer the best we’ve seen. We offer free quotes on custom blend standards with expert advice on the compatibility of the mixture you request. All standards and acids come with a “Certificate of Analysis & MSDS.” If we get the order early enough it will usually ship within 24 hours.

Walter Maxwell with Vice President Connie R. Hayes and
President Dr. Theodore C. Rains of High Purity Standards

HOLLOW CATHODE AND D2 LAMPS FOR ALL ATOMIC ABSORPTION SPECTROPHOTOMETERS
Our hollow cathode lamps are the highest quality lamps available. They are made by a company that brought together three top-notch manufacturers mixing English, American and German engineering. Despite thorough testing at the manufacturer, we test each lamp on our own spectrophotometers before shipping.

INSTRUMENT HOOD BLOWERS, STAINLESS STEEL HOODS, DUCTING, T’s & ELBOWS

Custom hoods and blowers for any air handling need
We have AA hoods made to our specifications out of high quality stainless steel. We purchase flexible 4 inch stainless ducting, T’s and elbows normally used by the instrument manufacturers. We also sell a high quality, USA-made hood blower designed for venting spectrophotometers.

AIR DRYERS

Maxwell Instrumentation custom built Air Dryers
If you use an air compressor in an area with high humidity, we highly recommend installing an Air Dryer. Moisture and oil from air compressors contaminate lines, dilute samples, and vary flame temperatures ultimately de-stabilizing flame AA readings. The result is inaccurate readings. The easiest, most economical solution for removing moisture and contaminates is installing our Air Dryer. The simple design and small size make installation easy. Air Dryers are essential to stabilizing readings, especially during humid months! Air Dryers are heatless self-regenerating dryers with no chiller. They have little or no maintenance and expel moisture by alternating between two drying columns. The oil and excess water is filtered out of the air before it gets to the drying columns. We custom-designed the circuitry for use with flame atomic absorption spectrophotometers, but our Air Dryers will work well with many types of equipment.

SURGE PROTECTORS AND VOLTAGE REGULATORS
Regardless of the brand, we highly recommend using a quality surge protector combined with a quality voltage regulator to protect your equipment. We sell Tripplite surge protectors and Sola voltage regulators for less than the recommended retail price. In 20 years of application with instrumentation, we’ve only seen one surge protector failure and one voltage regulator failure using these brands. We’ll be happy to walk you through the simple setup process. Not all surge protectors are created equal and most provide a false sense of security. This false sense of security stems from a $.85 device designed to provide protection for electrical surges. After that one shot, the surge protector is often damaged and can no longer provide protection. Often times, you may never know it isn’t working. Tripplite surge protectors are packed with different types of protectors. If one device fails, another device will usually stop the surge. More importantly, the protector keeps on working. Our most popular surge protector is both economical and simple. No cord, no switch but the best protection you require. We also carry corded, multi-outlet protectors with a switch. Tripplite surge protectors have virtually stopped our instrument service calls caused by surge damage. Unlike electrical surges, poor voltage stability usually doesn’t damage an instrument immediately. Left unchecked, severe damage is imminent. Sola voltage regulators are significantly larger than the surge protectors.
