The most advanced microwave digestion system.Perfect integration between microwave hardware, user interface, reaction sensors and pressure vessels.

Microwave hardware

The ETHOS EASY is equipped with two 950 Watt magnetrons for a total of 1900 Watt making it the most powerful microwave digestion system available for sample preparation. The system additionally employs a rotating diffuser that evenly distributes the microwaves throughout the cavity. High power coupled with the diffuser enables very fast heating of high throughput rotors and the complete digestion of the most difficult samples.

Largest microwave cavity

The new Milestone ETHOS EASY microwave cavity has a volume in excess of 70 litres, by far the largest currently available. New digestion rotors with more sample places can be accommodated finally improving productivity and throughput. Moreover, the unit is inherently much safer since a larger cavity better contains gases escaping from vessels, should there be a sudden overpressurisation.

Highest power

The ETHOS EASY is equipped with two 950 Watt magnetrons for a total of 1900 Watt making it the most powerful microwave digestion system available for sample preparation. The system additionally employs a rotating diffuser that evenly distributes the microwaves throughout the cavity. Very fast heating of high throughput rotors and complete digestion of the most difficult samples is assured.

Power is nothing without control

Direct temperature and pressure control are used in a single reference vessel. In all vessels, contact-less temperature is used where the actual temperature of each and every vessel is continuously shown on the instrument control terminal during the microwave run, allowing an instant visual check of the digestion conditions. In addition, a contact-less pressure sensor monitors and controls all vessels simultaneously, preventing any leakage or venting. In combination with our ‘vent-and-reseal’ vessel technology, the sensors ensure complete and safe digestions without any loss of volatile compounds.

Pressure-responsive door

The ETHOS EASY features a full stainless steel door with an innovative opening and self-resealing mechanism. Should there be a sudden overpressurisation of the cavity, the door slightly opens for rapid and safe pressure release and the microwave power is instantaneously cut off. Immediately afterward, the door is pulled back, resealing the cavity. For additional safety, an automatic door locking system does not allow the user to open the ETHOS EASY door during the microwave run. At the end of the run, the door remains locked until the solutions have cooled down to a user preset temperature.
