Our mission: Your success
Delivering better instruments to make your working life easier
When it comes to accurate laboratory measurements of Total Organic Carbon (TOC) and Total Bound Nitrogen (TNb) in environmental and wastewaters, our mission is to make your work as stress-free and efficient as possible. Our enviro TOC system combines proven analytical functionality with the latest technology requirements of the industry for the most convenient and resource-saving TOC and TNb determinations.
Counting on carbon - TOC vs. BOD & COD
Learn why total organic carbon (TOC) measurement is the safer, more reliable and environmentally friendly alternative to biological and chemical oxygen demand (BOD and COD) measurement in wastewater analysis in this white paper.

Our TOC specialists have produced a series of webinars packed with helpful advice, information and techniques for you to better understand and utilise TOC and TNb analysis in your laboratory.
NEW CHALLENGES IN EVERYDAY LABORATORY WORK
TOC and TNb are important indicators in the process of wastewater treatment. There are now a number of regulations, both in the EU and worldwide, that define the permissible values for TOC and TNb from wastewater treatment plants. In our laboratory surveys, accurate analysis of TOC and TNb levels in particularly saline solutions, particulate-containing samples and solids were among the biggest challenges. Large, stable particles must be digested, saline samples lead to corrosion, and sedimentation and ash deposits cause increased and usually complicated maintenance. To fully digest these samples and ensure high quality results, these samples may need to be exposed to a range of different combustion temperatures.
Learn about the influence combustion temperature has on TOC determination in surface and wastewater, and how you can solve these and other challenges more quickly and conveniently.
Surface water analysis
On a mission to protect our most important resource
Monitoring the water quality of inland waters such as lakes, rivers, streams and ponds or of coastal waters and seawater is important for maintaining our quality of life and health. In this context, environmental laboratories are often faced with the challenge of analyzing not only liquid samples but also solids, for example sediments or soil samples. The flexible extension of measurement results (TOC, TC, TIC, NPOC, DOC) to include simultaneous TNb determination using efficient EC cell technology or a modern, integrated chemiluminescence detector (CLD) is also a requirement we frequently encounter in our discussions. The advantage of the CLD is linearly calibrated, stable measured values, which greatly simplifies calibration and result evaluation. The previous solution in the form of space- and time-consuming second or third devices is not an option, especially in smaller laboratories.
Find out now how a flexible, space-saving and cost-effective single-device solution can make your daily laboratory routine more efficient and convenient.
Fully automated environmental and wastewater analysis
enviro TOC is specifically designed to be easier to use, more flexible, accurate and simpler to maintain. enviro TOC is a customizable system for TOC/TNb analysis in environmental water and wastewater. It is a future-oriented, precise technological solution that is also more efficient and environmentally friendly, thanks to longer-life components and a user-oriented maintenance concept. Regardless of whether you’re analyzing water from rivers, lakes and seas, or managing water from public sources, manufacturing processes and wastewater, enviro TOC is the smart choice.
Measuring TOC is easy
Fully automated environmental & wastewater analysis
The autosampler of the enviro TOC even even enables unattended night operation with the highest precision. This is realized by the intuitive and innovative lyticOS® Software Suite. Optimized for unsupervised use, it actively assists you with self-diagnosis, automatic sleep and wake functions, visual guidance for maintenance tasks and full remote control functionality. This means you can rely on enviro TOC to provide the results you need when you need them and fits perfectly into a modern, high-throughput laboratory environment.

FLEXIBILITY WHERE YOU NEED IT MOST
When you need to switch quickly to adapt to different sample types and parameters, enviro TOC has you covered. Fast conversion from liquids to solids in just a few minutes provides high flexibility and combustion temperatures of up to 1,200 °C crack even stable carbon compounds. If it’s lower temperatures you need, 700 °C for salt-containing samples can be defined. Learn more about the influence of the combustion temperature on TOC determination in our Application Note.
All of these features and more help enviro TOC fulfil our mission to make your environmental and wastewater analysis easier and more flexible. Contact our sales team for a personal consultation.
enviro TOC’s high performance combustion provides accurate and dependable results every time. Rinsing functions for the needles on the autosampler and on the cleaning the tubes before the combustion unit minimize carryover, avoid sedimentation and contamination, providing even better data. This also increases the lifespan of the injection unit. The lyticOS® software suite works just as hard, helping to provide precise results by minimizing potential errors from incorrect usage. Results are processed immediately, and the calibration procedure is simplified, which makes TOC analysis easier for every operator.

OPTIMIZED OPERATIONAL EXPENDITURE
enviro TOC doesn’t just provide high performance surface and wastewater analysis, it does that while keeping costs low at the same time. While gas and consumables consumption depends on the mode of operation and sample material, enviro TOC provides lower cost per analysis across the board.
- Regular rinsing with water keeps the wear of the injection needles and the 4-way valve low.
- 2 ml of 10% H3PO4 is typically needed for TIC analysis.
- 0.5 – 1 ml of 10% HCl is required for NPOC analysis.
- 175 ml/min of synthetic air or oxygen is needed for regular analysis, plus 90 ml/min for purging in NPOC mode, TIC mode and for the autosampler rinsing function.
