Elementar presents the new acquray Series for the determination of TOC, TN and TP at analytica 2016
At analytica 2016, Elementar introduces a new, modular and highly versatile system platform for the determination of total organic carbon, total nitrogen and total phosphorus.
Well-known as the innovation leader in elemental analysis of organic materials, Elementar takes advantage of their industry-leading technology to develop the acquray series: a new innovative system platform ideal for a multitude of different applications.
The TOC module is based on a chemical oxidation process supported by high-energy UV radiation. This combination ensures complete digestion of all organic compounds. The modular concept allows the attachment of optional extra modules for the additional determination of total nitrogen and phosphorus (patent pending). For increased sample throughput, an autosampler is available, offering several carousels for different sample vial sizes.
Furthermore, a combustion furnace module for solid samples can be attached as well. The dynamic heater design allows TOC analysis of solids via acidification prior to combustion at constant temperature, but also the determination of TOC, TIC and ROC with the new, more advanced method via temperature ramping without acidification.
