Depending on the selected functionality, the inductar EL cube is optimized for simultaneous carbon and sulfur analysis or simultaneous oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen analysis.
We offer an automated version with up to 89 sample positions, as well as a manual version with two sample positions.
Depending on the selected functionality, the inorganic sample that is to be analyzed will either combust in oxygen at 2,000 °C (CS) or fuse with helium or argon at 3,000 °C (ONH). Subsequently, the resulting gases are analyzed and all analysis is conducted according to international standards.
Easy sample preparation and handling:
There is no need for special sample preparation, meaning all kinds of solid samples can be weighed using the instrument. For CS, samples are loaded into ceramic containers, while ONH uses graphite containers and can handle samples up to 1 g. For some analyses, additives may be needed.
Five elements in one device:
The inductar EL cube is the first analyzer to combine CHNOS into one single device. A simple switch will transform the device from CS to ONH and simple maintenance work will ensure the analyzer runs as reliably and accurately as the respective specialized analyzers.
Linear single/multipoint calibration:
The operator is guided through the calibration by an intuitive calibration assistant. The transparently calculated calibration is editable, storable, linear and stable for months, and templates can be stored for future calibrations.
Low operational requirements:
The instrument takes up one meter of laboratory working space and only needs one electrical connection and one operating gas for maintenance-free, long-term operation.
Automated and unattended operation is possible using the integrated sample changer, while control is granted using Windows or optional 21 CFR Part 11 compliant software.
An optical camera is available for observation of the combustion or fusion process.
Electronic analytical balance:
We offer analytical balances from the leading manufacturers with all of our instruments.
Nickel capsule press (ONH):
In order to securely, smoothly and easily close the nickel capsules, particularly for powder samples, we recommend using Elementar’s nickel capsule press.
Lab furnace (CS):
We recommend preheating the ceramic crucibles prior to combustion analysis, as clean, carbon-free crucibles are required for low carbon concentrations. For this, we offer several lab furnaces from leading manufacturers.
Halogen trap (CS):
Halogens from samples have a major influence on the quantitative detection of carbon and sulfur. We offer halogen traps for chlorine (intrap-Cl) and fluorine (intrap-F).
Our kits of consumables contain all the necessary parts and chemicals for the corresponding mode. This includes combustion/reaction tubes, as well as all of the relevant chemicals and instrument-specific wear parts.
We do not compromise on the quality of the used parts and chemicals - this is a prerequisite of the guaranteed long lifetime of our instruments.
For carbon and sulfur analysis, the following consumables are required:
For oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen analysis, you will need the following consumables:
