Available In Three Formats:
- 36000009 – M360 5-ELEMENT FLAME PHOTOMETER – Propane/Butane
- 36000109 – M360 5-ELEMENT FLAME PHOTOMETER – Natural Gas
- Both the above are supplied with individual1000 ppm (mg/l) calibration concentrate solutions
- 36000209 – M360C 5-ELEMENT FLAME PHOTOMETER – Propane/Butane
- The M360C is provided with a mixed calibration concentrate 140.0/5.00/1.50 mmol/l Na/K/Li
It is important to order the correct part number to ensure fuel gas compatibility. Detector response in the 360C is “linearized” when the Sodium filter is selected; the 360C specification – see below – assumes samples are diluted as indicated.
Model 360C Specification
Note: The above is correct for use with Propane or Butane. Results obtained from 20 replicates of the same sample, aspirating sample for 20 seconds, then water for 10 seconds. To achieve the stated specification the flame must be alight for a minimum of 30 minutes, with diluent being aspirated. (For a brand new, newly installed unit, the stabilisation is highly likely to be greater than 30 minutes).
Note: For Li determinations; blank and standard solutions must contain similar levels of Na, K and Ca to those present in physiological samples.
Model 360 Part Number 360 00 009
Sodium is highly prone to self-absorbance in the flame above a concentration of 10 ppm.

For optimum performance the Model 360 Flame Photometer should be warmed up for 30 minutes.
Na, K & Li interference is <0.5% value of element under analysis.
<1.5%* CV for 10ppm K set to 1000 (20 aliquots sampled for 20 seconds each from a single sample). Reading taken 20 seconds after introduction and with a Blank aspirated for 10 seconds between each standard reading.
<1.0%* CV for 20 consecutive readings taken at 20 second intervals without removing the uptake tube from a 10ppm Potassium solution Set to 1000.
