Elemental Combustion Analyzer

An elemental combustion analyzer is able to measure the amount of Total Nitrogen, Total Sulfur and Total Chloride through high temperature combustion (approximately 1000 ˚C) in an oxygen rich environment. In contrast to CHNSO analyzers that also carry the name ‘elemental combustion analyzer’, elements can be detected from trace level (µg/kg or ppb level) up to 10.000 ppm or mg/L (1%). By combusting the sample, NO2, SO2 and HCl are formed which can be detected by either Pulsed UV-Fluorescence, Chemiluminescence or Microcoulometry detection technique.
