Elemental Combustion Analyzers

XPLORER TN/TS from TE Instruments
The Xplorer-NS offers fast, accurate, and precise analysis of liquid, LPG, gas, and solid samples
Elemental combustion analyzer for Total Nitrogen by Chemiluminescence and Total Sulfur by UV-Fluorescence.
The Xplorer-NS is the smallest Total Nitrogen (TN) and Total Sulfur (TS) analyzer available in today’s market. This advanced elemental combustion analyzer offers fast, accurate, and precise analysis of liquid, LPG, gas, and solid samples. It is designed to offer standardized and customized solutions to match current as well as future analytical needs, ranging from low ppb to high ppm applications.

The Xplorer-NS measures Nitrogen and Sulfur simultaneously. Valuable information about a sample that contains both elements is created during a single run. With its low detection limit it is possible to measure concentrations at ppb level. Detection through Chemiluminescence and UV-Fluorescence with sample combustion at high temperature are the reference methods for the determination of Total Nitrogen and Total Sulfur. Separate analysis of Total Nitrogen or Total Sulfur can be done with the Xplorer-N or Xplorer-S.

Elemental Combustion Analyzer for Adsorbable Organic Halogens (AOX), TOX, EOX and POX by Microcoulometry
The XPLORER AOX TOX is designed to analyze rapidly and precise in a wide range of liquid and solid matrices. It is ideal for laboratories performing Organic Halogen analysis, if necessary for round-the-clock operation. The AOX, EOX and POX modules are easily interchangeable.
High throughput AOX analysis is enabled by a unique slider principle, the Xplorer simply utilizes Newton’s law of gravity, by allowing the cup or frit to ‘fall’ into the boat, before entering the horizontal furnace.
When the boat returns from the furnace, the slider moves to the eject position, where the used cup or frit is collected for re-use, without any pile-up in the furnace tube.

The Xpert, a true All-In-One footprint solution
TE Instruments is proud to present this innovative elemental combustion solution; the Xpert TOC/TNb analyzer. Decades of experience have been deployed to create this new analyzer which represents the ultimate combination of robustness, accurate sample analysis and user convenience. The Xpert enables its user to analyze Total Organic Carbon (TOC) and Total bound Nitrogen (TNb) simultaneously, within a few minutes from a single injection.

This analyzer can be configured as a combined TOC/TNb or single parameter analyzer. TE Instruments designed the Xpert in a unique way by integrating the liquids autosampler and TN detector into the footprint of the analyzer. No separate modules or footprint expansion. By default, the liquids autosampler is included with every Xpert analyzer.

A fully automatic Total Organic Carbon and Total Bound Nitrogen analyzer following the high temperature with catalyst combustion test methods.

Automated Sample Preparation Solution for the Analysis of Total Fluorine, Chlorine, Bromine, and Iodine by Combustion Ion Chromatography Method
Combustion Ion Chromatography
TE Instruments introduces the world’s first independent sample preparation system for Combustion Ion Chromatography analysis: the Xprep C-IC. This unique configuration redefines automated combustion IC analysis through its innovative design and functionalities.

Besides full control over sample combustion, the Xprep C-IC not only collects the oxidized gas stream, but also automatically transfers a fraction of the absorbance solution to any renowned IC system. The ideal solution to cover the increasing demand for analysis of corrosive halogens (Fluor, Chlorine, Bromine, Iodine) and Sulfur compounds (e.g. Sulfate, Sulfite, Thiosulfate) in different matrices. These analytes need to be monitored because they are corrosive, poison catalysts, damage industrial equipment, and are harmful to the environment.

TE Instruments developed a fully automated, extremely compact sample preparation system covering the oxidative pyrohydrolytic combustion, fraction collection, and sample injection towards the IC. The Xprep C-IC can introduce samples both via optimized direct injection (liquids module) and conventional boat-inlet (boat module) into a horizontal furnace. This automated sample-prep solution reduces complexity of sample transfer and significantly improves user convenience. Compatible with Chromeleon and MagIC Net software.

Genetec is a member of the same family of companies as Kovalent. Both companies share the same set of values and are in many ways integrated with each other. The main difference between the two companies are their products. Kovalent is involved in system solutions including instrumentation and Genetec is mainly working with consumables. The focus of Genetec is chromatography accessories. You are welcome to visit their state of the art web shop: genetec.se
