Dexsil L2000DX Analyzer System
On-Site Field Testing: Quantitative PCB/Clorinated Organics Testing for Dielectric Fluid, Soil, Water and Surface Samples
U.S. EPA SW-846 Method 9078 for Soil
The L2000DX relies on the same basic chemistry as the Clor-N-Oil test kits, however instead of a colorimetric reaction, the L2000DX uses an ion specific electrode to quantify the contamination in the sample. Sample analysis is available for transformer oils, soils, water and surface wipes. The usable measurement range for oils and soils is 2 to 2000 ppm, 20 ppb to 2000 ppm for water and 2 to 2000 ug/100 cm2 for wipe samples.
The large LCD (2 lines x 16 characters) back-lit display is easy to read in all lighting situations. Pertinent information regarding the program in use, blank subtraction values, reporting units, and concentration values are clearly visible on the display.
The L2000DX Analyzer is preprogrammed with conversion factors for all major Aroclors and most chlorinated pesticides and solvents. The built-in methods include corrections for extraction efficiencies, dilution factors and blank contributions. Precanned programs are easily selected from a menu to perform routine analysis of common chlorinated organic compounds. For less common analytes or for custom measurement protocols, user defined methods can be easily built and stored using the method development menus.
Analysis results can either be stored for later print-out, using the parallel port or up-loading to a PC via the RS-232 serial port, or sent directly to the on-board 40 column thermal printer. The analyzer itself utilizes rechargeable batteries which allow fully mobile operation in remote locations without access to power.
