This Information Applies To: Agilent 5000 Series ICP-OES (5100/5110/5800/5900)
Correct ventilation is required to ensure proper function of the ICP-OES.
The ICP-OES must be located under a flue that is vented by an exhaust fan and ducted to an external vent.
Caution: The exhaust system installation must comply with any rules and/or regulations imposed by the local authorities responsible for control of facilities and fixtures in the work place
The exhaust system (flue, ducting, and external vent) requirements are:
Warning: The exhaust system must be on before the plasma is ignited otherwise damage to the instrument or injury to the operator may occur
Caution: Exceeding the maximum exhaust flow could impact the sustainability of the plasma resulting in an error with the instrument function

Tips: If more ducting is needed, flexible ducting (p/n 410000400) is available in 1 m (39.3 in) sections.
Caution: The user is responsible for supplying the ductwork between the instrument and the lab extraction system.
