CHNS, CHN, CNS, CN: all available from the basic unit.
Optional detection of oxygen and chlorine (with TCD or IR)
All modes are suitable for the analysis of solid & liquid organic and the majority of inorganic samples.
High temperature combustion
quantitative sample digestion at up to 1200 °C – with ten years furnace warranty (1800 °C at the point of combustion when tin foil is used). This is the prerequisite for 100% recovery also with samples difficult to combust. Jet injection of oxygen directly to the sample leads to highest oxygen concentrations at the point of combustion and low gas consumption
Largest weighing range
from micro (< 0.1 mg) to macro (1 g soil) sample weight, depending on requirements up to 50 mg organic matter
Largest dynamic range of element concentrations and element ratio
up to 14 mg C abs. (50 mg C in CN mode, requires optional configuration) or 10 mg N abs. (or 100%, depending on analysis mode and sample matrix), from ppm to 100%
Direct Temperature programmed Desorption (direct TPD)
Separation of gaseous components with an optimized TPD column for perfect separation without peak overlap. Automated optimization of the time per analysis
stable over months and matrix-independent
with a standard PC for perfect results also for unknown or heavily variable sample matrices with integrated sample feeder for 120 samples, 21 CFR part 11 functionality available. Possibility for remote service due to full digitalization of the instrument electronics. System control under Linux also possible.
One high-performance instrument for all applications
No expensive special catalysts, easy ash removal from the combustion tube and long lifetime of all components are the basis for a low cost of ownership
Clean, safe, fast
The analysis only takes a few minutes, no aggressive or toxic chemicals are used, Helium carrier gas (Argon possible alternatively)
Easy installation requirements
48 x 55 cm benchtop space, 1 power supply (230, 110, 100 V), and two gases are sufficient for maintenance free long time operation
Electronic micro balance:
balance and elemental analyzer form a system. We offer micro balances and analytical balances from the leading manufacturers with our instruments.
Upgrade kit sulfur:
For upgrading the basic instrument for highly precise sulfur determination in the trace concentration range, also in CHNS mode.
alternative carousels are available for larger samples with a volume up to 1 cm3
Upgrade kit oxygen:
for upgrading the basic unit to oxygen determination with a pyrolysis temperature of up to 1150 °C. Conversion of the bound oxygen to CO and detection with the built in TCD or alternatively with IR technology.
Upgrade kit chlorine:
for upgrading the basic instrument for the determination of chlorine.
Combustion of the sample at 1150 °C and detection of the formed
HCl with electrochemical sensors.
for the dosing and gas tight sealing of tin capsules for liquid and sensitive samples.
vario Liquid Sampler, VLS:
The VLS automated sample feeder is used for liquid injections directly into the combustion chamber.
Manual gas/liquid injection:
for the injection of liquid or gaseous samples via a septum free injector port and a micro-syringe.
Sample former with pressing tool:
for the compaction of the wrapped samples and removal of air in soil samples.
Manual pressing tool:
for the manual compaction of the wrapped sample.
We offer all consumables required for the operation of our analyzers. These include combustion/reduction tubes, chemicals, measuring standards, sampe containers, seals, and instrument-specific wear parts. We do not compromise on quality of our parts and chemicals – this is the prerequisite of a guaranteed long lifetime of our instruments. When using original consumables from Elementar, a 10 year warranty on high temperature combustion furncace and thermoconductivity cell (TCD) is granted.
