Determination of carbon and sulfur

When using conventional elemental analyzers for carbon and sulfur determination in solids, the user has to decide whether to use a resistance furnace to analyze organic compounds or an induction furnace for inorganic compounds. Now Eltra’s unique CS-2000 analyzer combines both techniques. Thus the user only needs one analyzer to examine organic matrices (such as fuels, oils, chemicals) and inorganic matrices for their carbon and sulfur content directly without cumbersome sample preparation. The ­analysis time of the CS-2000 is impressively short: analysis of steel, for example, only takes about 50 s, and for coal it is about 90 s. Carbon and sulfur are measured simultaneously with an accurate infrared detection system.
