Total carbon analyzer

24 April 2020

The TOC analysis shows the total amount of organic carbon in municipal wastewater, industrial wastewater, and process water. This analysis is generally used to know the rate of pollution of a water or to monitor the effectiveness of its treatment.

TOC measurement is based on: 1) the oxidation of organic carbon to carbon dioxide, and 2) the measurement of carbon dioxide generated by infrared.

Ability to measure Total Carbon (TC), Inorganic Carbon (IC), and Total organic Carbon (TOC, by TC-IC difference) and Total Nitrogen (TNb). Range from 4 μg / l to 30,000 mg /l (Shimadzu TOC-L Series device™).
