Teledyne Tekmar offers four total organic carbon analyzers for the measurement of total carbon (TC), inorganic carbon (IC) and TOC
Fusion UV/Persulfate Analyzer
The Fusion Total Organic Carbon Analyzer utilizes powerful UV Persulfate oxidation allowing superior carbon liberation from even the most challenging matrixes. By implementing the patented Static Pressure Concentration (SPC) technology, the Fusion Total Organic Carbon Analyzer is able to achieve unprecedented low-end sensitivity from a Non-Dispersive Infrared (NDIR) detector. The Fusion Analyzer is built on the latest technology and is designed to offer productivity for a wide variety of applications.
The Fusion Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analyzer and TekLink™ Software offer solutions for increased sample throughput while improving the reliability of the analysis data. A few of the features that provide increased ease of use are unattended auto-calibration monitoring, automatic dilution capabilities from stock standards or samples, intellidilution for automatically diluting a sample back into calibration range, automated self-diagnostic tools including leak check, 21 CFR 11 functionality - Electronic Records and Electronic Signatures (ERES) including audit trails and user-account management, exportable reports in user-definable formats including metadata and versioning, turn-key method development and schedule builder, mass Flow Controller (MFC) for reduced gas consumption and enhanced flow control.
Torch Combustion Analyzer
The Torch is considered the premium TOC combustion analyzer due to its many useful features and automated analysis processes. For example, it makes serial dilutions of stock standards to form a calibration curve and auto-dilute samples with concentrations above the calibration curve. The Torch software has built-in diagnostic and troubleshooting capabilities.
The Torch utilizes a patent pending Static Pressure Concentration (SPC) for the analysis of TOC using high temperature combustion and maintenance is simplified by design allowing easy access to all areas of the unit.
Lotix Combustion TOC Analyzer
The Lotix TOC Combustion analyzer is designed to accurately measure carbon content in aqueous matrices down to the ppb level. It uses proven high temperature combustion, oxidation of carbon material into carbon dioxide, and detection using a new Non-Dispersive Infrared (NDIR) detector.
Lotix key features are no costly syringe drives or 7-port valves, ability to run 0-20,000 ppm without dilution with a single 0.5 mL injection volume virtually eliminating the need for multiple calibration curves, easy to use software requiring < 1 minute to set up a calibration curve, simple design ensures virtually any component can be accessed in minutes, and with the furnace located in the front, combustion tube maintenance is a snap, real-time viewing of analytical data and printing of completed sample reports while instrument is running, easy scheduling of priority samples, ability to export to CSV or PDF and import from CSV files, average run time for triplicate TOC is 13-15 minutes (depending on concentration), uses a pressurized 10 L water reservoir to clean the sample pathway, loop and needle before and after each sample without using any positions on the autosampler, ability to run solids with optional module.
