The FormacsHT Total Organic Carbon high temperature catalytic combustion system features a versatile modular design and excellent performance for the analysis of Total Carbon (TC), Total Inorganic Carbon (TIC), Total Organic Carbon (TOC), Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC) and Non-Purgeable Organic Carbon (NPOC). This design was developed to conform to the latest customer requirements and allows the determination of TOC in clean waters such as pharmaceutical – and drinking waters but also performing equally well for the analysis of waste, surface, seawater and soil extracts.
The Total Organic Carbon analyzer can be operated as a stand-alone analyzer where sample and standard solutions are introduced directly through a rotary septumless injection port for analysis of TC and TIC. For larger sample numbers an optional random access auto-sampler is available for complete automation of the TOC determination. The auto-sampler is available with different carrousels for vials with different volumes. Sample pre-treatment for NPOC determination is fully controlled by the operation software and can be set in preferred mode by the operator. The instrument has the possibility with a dual needle set-up to acidify and purge the following sample while analyzing the current one, which saves valuable analysis time.
