Skimmer Cones

ESSLAB supply skimmer cones for all major manufacturers of ICP and ICP-MS instruments.

All sample and skimmer cones, regardless of ICP-MS manufacturer or design, serve the same function. They are the differential apertures separating the sample at atmosphere from the mass filter and detector(s) at high vacuum.

Though the fundamental dimensions are all essentially the same (sample cone with shallow angle, skimmer cone with acute angle), each manufacturer has designed the cone's critical dimensions to their own unique specifications, based on the design of the mass spectrometer.
