Ethos Easy

Milestone Ethos-Easy

The most advanced microwave digestion system.
Perfect integration between
microwave hardware, user interface, reaction sensors and pressure vessels.

Microwave hardware

We have incorporated in the new ETHOS EASY our vision of the future, our passion, and our knowledge, with the ultimate goal of helping chemists.

Largest microwave cavity

The new Milestone ETHOS EASY microwave cavity has a volume in excess of 70 litres, by far the largest currently available. New digestion rotors with more sample places can be accommodated finally improving productivity and throughput. Moreover, the unit is inherently much safer since a larger cavity better contains gases escaping from vessels, should there be a sudden overpressurisation.

Milestone Easy Cavity

Highest power

The ETHOS EASY is equipped with two 950 Watt magnetrons for a total of 1900 Watt making it the most powerful microwave digestion system available for sample preparation.
The system additionally employs a rotating diffuser that evenly distributes the microwaves throughout the cavity. Very fast heating of high throughput rotors and complete digestion of the most difficult samples is assured.

Power is nothing without control

Direct temperature and pressure control are used in a single reference vessel.
In all vessels, contact-less temperature is used where the actual temperature of each and every vessel is continuously shown on the instrument control terminal during the microwave run, allowing an instant visual check of the digestion conditions.
In addition, a contact-less pressure sensor monitors and controls all vessels simultaneously, preventing any leakage or venting.
In combination with our "vent-and-reseal" vessel technology, the sensors ensure complete and safe digestions without any loss of volatile compounds.

Pressure-responsive door

The ETHOS EASY features a full stainless steel door with an innovative opening and self-resealing mechanism. Should there be a sudden overpressurisation of the cavity, the door slightly opens for rapid and safe pressure release and the microwave power is instantaneously cut off. Immediately afterward, the door is pulled back, resealing the cavity.
For additional safety, an automatic door locking system does not allow the user to open the ETHOS EASY door during the microwave run. At the end of the run, the door remains locked until the solutions have cooled down to a user preset temperature.

User interface

The ETHOS EASY is controlled via a compact terminal with an easy-to-read, bright, full-colour, touchscreen display. The terminal runs a completely new user-friendly, icon-driven, multi-language software to provide easy control of the microwave run.
Simply recall a previously stored method or create a new one, press START and the system will automatically follow the user defined temperature utilising a sophisticated PID algorithm. Hundreds of applications, including all US EPA methods, are preloaded in the ETHOS EASY terminal.
There is no need to input the number of samples or weights being digested, as the software will automatically regulate the microwave power accordingly. This assures a consistent quality of digestion and simplifies the use of the instrument.

New digestion rotors

Two completely new rotors offering both high quality digestion and high sample throughput are available for the ETHOS EASY.
The "vent-and-reseal" patented (US Patent 5,270,010) technology of Milestone provides the operator with unsurpassed safety and performance capabilities: highest temperature and pressure, highest safety standards, ease of use, and very fast cooling (180°C to 40°C in 10 minutes).
