The PrimacsSERIES provides fast, reliable, accurate, and low-level analysis of Total Nitrogen / Protein, Total Carbon, Total Organic Carbon, Total Elemental Carbon, and Total Inorganic Carbon all in one unit.

The measurement of TC, TOC, TEC, and TIC is based on high-temperature catalytic combustion with Non-Dispersive Infrared detection (NDIR). The temperature settings are variable and a special temperature ramping program allows the analysis of TEC, according to DIN 19539. The TN/Protein analysis is based upon DUMAS methodology and detection with Thermal Conductivity (TCD). TIC can also be determined separately using automatic acidification and purging. All systems come with a practical and flexible software package, with pre-installed method files, user-definable sample table set up, integrated QC features, etc.

The analyzer contains a large integrated 100 position autosampler with a unique vertical sample introduction system. The sample ashes remain in the crucible after the analysis and are taken out to the instrument with the removal of the crucible. This avoids sample ash build-up in the combustion zone and therefore reduces maintenance.
