Components of a Flame Photometer

In a Flame Photometer there are 5 main components that make up the instrument. These are:

1) Flame

2) Nebulizer

3) Mixing Chamber

4) Colour Filters

The Flame is a burner that is within the instrument needed for temperature control and to heat up the solution.

The Nebulizer breaks up the sample into atoms.

The mixing chamber mixes the relevant solution with the sample.

The colour filters show us which metals are present.

The photodetector tells us which metal the sample contains and to what concentration level.
