Precise Carbon and Sulfur Analysis in inorganic samples
ELTRAs CS-800 is a flexible and robust combustion analyzer for the determination of carbon and sulfur in inorganic sample materials such as steel, cast iron or cement. Organic samples like soil, graphite or chemicals can also be analyzed with the CS-800. It is is equipped with a 2500 °C induction furnace to examine the element concentrations in solids without time-consuming sample preparation. The typical analysis time is approximately 45 to 60 seconds.
Whereas spectrometric methods require a homogeneous and plane sample surface for C/ S analysis, the CS-800 also accepts samples in the form of powders, grains, drillings or broken pieces. Thanks to the high sample weight of up to 1 g even inhomogeneous samples can be reliably characterized.
The CS-800 features up to four independent infrared measuring cells allowing for accurate analysis of low as well as high carbon and sulfur concentrations simultaneously in one measurement. The sensitivity of the IR cells can be individually configured to ensure optimum adaptation to application requirements. If the analysis involves aggressive reactive gases (for example from acidulous soil samples) the use of robust and durable gold cuvettes is an option.
