K1 Prime

K1 Prime

The K1 Prime brings the ultimate in fusion accuracy together with all the advantages of electric power: controlled heating, energy efficiency and ease of installation – now with a sleek touch-screen interface, a safety shield and even more robust components than the original K1.



The K1 Prime: Features

New features

  • Color LCD touch-screen interface.
  • Multilingual:
    • English
    • French
    • Spanish
    • Chinese
    • Russian
  • “Manager” and “User” modes.
  • Improved temperature control.
  • Quieter running.
  • USB connectivity.
  • Stronger motors, sturdier electronics.
  • Integrated safety shield.


  • Entirely automated.
  • Fully reproducible fusion methods.
  • Completely independent heaters for crucible and mold for optimal temperature control and homogenization.


  • No gases used, so no post-combustion toxic products released.
  • Minimal heat dissipation (dissipates less than a hair dryer); casing remains cool to the touch; no need for a powerful vent hood.
  • Uses only a regular electrical outlet.
  • Integrated safety shield.


  • Prepares glass disks for XRF, but can also readily do peroxide or pyrosulfate fusions.
  • Optional solution stirrer provides for solution-making ability, for ICP and AA.
  • Ready to fuse with built-in methods for oxides, minerals, metals, alloys, sulfides, fluorides and more.
  • Fully customizable fusion methods.
  • Can make liquid and solid oxidations.
  • Can be used at either 120 and 240 VAC.


  • Throughput of 5 to 7 samples/hour.
  • User-adjustable holding temperature: the temperature between fusion can be maintained to minimize initial ramping time.


  • Plug-and-play: installs in seconds.
  • Intuitive, graphical interface.
  • Easy menu navigation.
  • Virtually maintenance-free; easy component access.
  • 1-year limited warranty.
