Some analysis techniques may be affected by alumina or silica dust (Al2O3 at SiO2) - the materials normally used to construct furnace chambers. To avoid this the GSM furnace chamber is constructed from a fused quartz material.
This design also offers superior containment of aggressive and corrosive vapours such as sulphuric, nitric and hydrochloric acids by keeping them away from the heating elements.
Additionally if an optional gas inlet is specified, the enclosed design minimises gas leakages from the chamber.
