Clean, Fast & Efficient Combustion: ZoneProtect™
HighSense™: High Performance UV-Absorption for SO₂
The combustion analyzer G4 ICARUS Series 2 with high frequency (HF) induction furnace and HighSense™ detection stes new standards in for a rapid and precise carbon (C) and sulfur (S) analysis in inorganic solids.
Due to their impact on the material properties, the need for fast and reliable CS analysis is not limited to iron and steel but also applies to ferrous and non-ferrous metals, their alloys, ceramics, ores, cement, limestone and numerous other inorganic solids.
When time to result matters, while accuracy must be granted in the first shot, with minimum sample preparation, combustion analysis is irreplaceable for the analysis of light elements. These are difficult or impossible to measure by direct spectroscopic methods, especially when embedded in difficult matrices. E.g. the G4 ICARUS Series 2 delivers accurate reults even in grey cast iron, where carbon is unevenly distributed in form of graphite clusters, because it applies a volumetric methods - analyzing the entire sample.
