CHN628 Series: Elemental Analysis by Combustion-Image

The CHN628 Series makes it possible to achieve fast results in organic matrices from food to fuels. This instrument incorporates features designed to maximize throughput while keeping cost-per-analysis low. The unique combustion gas handling and aliquot dosing system significantly extends the lifetime of the reagents used, eliminating the need for chromatographic separation techniques and other costly whole-gas analyses. A simple, gravity-fed autoloader allows for unattended analysis, while increasing long-term reliability of the loader. Independent detectors are used for simultaneous elemental determination, resulting in rapid analysis times.

For the operator, the instrument provides enhanced accessibility and ease-of-use. For safety and convenience, reagent and reduction tubes are located on the front side of the instrument behind a cabinet door, along with specially designed tools and storage to aid in performing maintenance tasks. The easy-to-use CHN628 software offers simplified data handling, customizable data reporting and exporting, and a number of user-defined settings, all with tools for compliance to FDA regulations 21 CFR Part 11 for a closed analytical system.
