Electroplater

Since alpha particles are easily absorbed, alpha spectrometry relies upon ultra-thin sample depositions for optimum resolution. The Electroplater enables a thin, evenly deposited mono-layer to be consistently plated upon a stainless steel, or platinum, planchet. High resolution allows separation of the alpha energy peaks and better isotope identification.

The Electroplater offers:

  • optimum alpha energy resolution
  • eliminates acidic samples shortening detector life
  • sample longevity & integrity
  • decreased physical detector contamination
  • improved sample preparation time due to multiple stations

Simple Apparatus Construction

Disposable electrodeposition cells are constructed from 20 mL polyethylene liquid scintillation vials with the bottom removed. A 0.75 inch diameter polished stainless steel planchet is inserted in the cap with the polished side facing inside the vial. The caps have a 5/8 inch diameter hole drilled in them to allow contact with the ground tab of the electroplater.

Electroplaters are offered in 4, 6, 8 and 12 station configurations and include a 50/60 Hz, 100/125 volt ac power supply which provides regulated dc current for the plating operation. Also available with a 50/60 Hz, 220/240 volt ac power supply with a universal line cord socket on special order.

(Note: for customers outside the USA, the electroplater is available WITHOUT power supply so you may obtain a 12 to 15 volt DC power supply @ 15/25 A that will work with your local electrical power)
