mercury flow system

in spectrochemical analysis
Also contains definitions of: open dynamic system in spectrochemical analysis, open static system in spectrochemical analysis
For mercury released directly as atomic vapour, different direct transfer systems are used. In an open dynamic system the liberated analyte is transported by a @C00863@ through the sampling or excitation source and swept away. In an open static system the equilibrated gaseous phase is forced into the absorption cell by displacement, e.g. by water. During measurement the gaseous phase is thus static. In a closed system the analyte and @C00863@ are circulated through the absorption cell and the generator vessel until equilibrium between the liquid and gaseous phases is established.
