Reliable and rapid determination of EC and OC content - as parameters of relevance to the environment - is of major significance for air quality on account of the carcinogenic, environmentally damaging effects from particulates of incomplete combustion products; for example, this is especially relevant in production facilities, underground mines, in industrial urban areas or along congested inner city arterial roads. The EC parameter is also of major interest in engine and catalytic converter research, for monitoring the effectiveness of combustion, exhaust filters and the activity of catalyst materials. The multi EA® 3100 analysis system can be used without complex sample preparation, to determine the organic and elemental carbon content directly and quickly.
