205 Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer
We make AA Easy!
Since 1970 Our goal here at Buck Scientific has been to make instruments that are easy to use, and maintain for many years, at minimal expense. We take a hands on approach to customer service by answering our own phones. You can talk to the engineer who assembled your instrument, for quick and friendly support. Call us today with your AA questions 800-562-5566.

The Buck 205 is a high energy, microprocessor controlled single beam atomic absorption spectrophotometer. Solid state electronics and simple optics provide the basis for our superior stability and sensitivity. The Ebert mount monochromator and user-selectable bandwidth give the system maximum flexibility. Our short-path dynamic nebulizer/burner configuration is highly efficient. An inert needle, precisely positioned in a high flow venturi, delivers sample to the corrosion proof impact bead. This results in a tremendously high nebulization effect for all types of sample matrices.

We run a metal finishing shop (plating) and are considering the use of one of these units to monitor iron and Zinc in our post treatment dips solutions. The iron and zinc affect the passivate film negatively reducing the life of their useful corrosion resistance. Additionally we would like to monitor the Nickel, Zinc, and Iron in our trichrome plating bath as well as Zinc and Copper in our nickel plating bath as very few parts / million can have profound affects on the deposits as plated. Do you feel this is a sound machine for managing these process chemistries.
We have a loyal following with plating shops around the world. Our Atomic Absorprtion Spectrophotometers can detect PPM levels of Nickel, Iron, Zinc, and copper down to PPM using the flame atomizer, and PPB levels using the Graphite furnace atomizer.
If you would like to use the 205 I would recommend the 1000 dollar upgrade for D2 background correction.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any fursther questions.
