The elemental analyzer ECS 4010 is an instrument for organic elemental analysis based on the Dumas method for the simultaneous determination of CHNS-O elements.
It represents an evolution of the elemental analysis techniques based on “flash combustion” / chromatographic separation. CO2, H2O, SO2 and N2 are separated in a GC column kept at a constant temperature that the user can select between 30 and 110 °C.
The ECS 4010 is a fully automated, microprocessor controlled analytical unit interfaced with a computer. The results can be viewed directly via PC using dedicated software.
The ECS 4010 is suggested when big amount of sample is burnt (for example in soil, sediment analysis). The ECS 4010 is also suggested in laboratories where a lot of samples are analysed.
This model is suggested for N; N,C; N,C,H; N,C,H,S analysis.
Thanks to the double furnace configuration a better optimization of catalyst consumption is possible.
The ECS 4010 has three main modules: a sampling/combustion system (three different autosamplers are available and various types of reactors to ensure an always optimized application), the detection system and the datahandling system.
This is a high sensitivity analysis instrument, very flexible and suitable for applications ranging from the pharmaceutical industry to marine biology, from the food analysis to petrochemical analysis.
The Detector (TCD, thermal Conductivity Detector, featuring an exclusive design) is self-calibrating and does not require the use of a reference gas.
The ECS 4010 combines robustness, reliability and flexibility in order to meet the most different analytical requirements.
The ECS 4010 is particularly suitable for linking to other units for determination of the isotopic ratios of stable isotopes in elements.
