The inductar CS cube is optimized for simultaneous carbon and sulfur analysis.
We offer an automated version with 89 sample positions as well as a manual version with 2 sample positions.
High-temperature-combustion in oxygen atmosphere at up to 2000 °C, followed by purification of the analytical gas flow and subsequent gas analysis. CS-analysis is done according to ISO 15350, ASTM E1019 and further international standards.
Easy sample preparation and handling
Without any special sample preparation, all kinds of solid samples are weighed into ceramic sample containers (sample mass up to 1 g).
Clean and safe analysis
The innovative crucible design, together with top-down oxygen gas stream, minimizes any dust inside the system. Furthermore spattering of sample melt is prevented, which assures a virtually unlimited lifetime of the combustion tube.
Large concentration range
From a few ppm up to 100 % or 60 mg carbon and 5 mg sulfur absolute.
The operator is guided through the calibration by an intuitive calibration assistant. The transparently calculated calibration is editable and storable. Furthermore, templates can be stored for future calibrations. Calibration is linear and stable for months.
Few operational requirements
1 m laboratory working space, one electrical connection and one operating gas are sufficient for long term operation.
Automated and unattended operation is possible with the integrated 89 position autosampler and PC-control through Windows®. Furthermore, optional 21 CFR Part 11 compliant software is available.
An optical camera is available for observation of the combustion process.
Electronic analytical balance:
The balance and elemental analyzer form a system.
We offer convenient analytical balances from the leading manufacturers with our instruments.
We recommend preheating the ceramic crucibles prior to combustion analysis, as for low carbon concentrations really clean, carbon-free crucibles are needed. For this preheating step we offer several lab furnaces from leading manufacturers.
Halogens from halogen containing samples have a major influence on the quantitative detection of carbon and sulfur. Thus, Elementar optional offers halogen traps for chlorine (intrap-Cl) and fluorine (intrap-F).
Our kits of consumables contain all necessary parts and chemicals for the corresponding mode, such as combustion and reaction tubes, all chemicals and instrument specific wear parts. We do not compromise on quality of the used parts and chemicals – this is the prerequisite of a guaranteed long lifetime of our instruments.
For carbon and sulfur analysis the following consumables are needed:
