The world’s first independent sample preparation system for combustion ion chromatography analysis

Dec 22 2023

TE Instruments offers an automated sample prep solution for the analysis of total fluorine, chlorine, bromine, and iodine by combustion IC Method. The Xprep C-IC is the world’s first independent sample preparation system for combustion ion chromatography analysis. This unique configuration redefines automated combustion IC analysis through its innovative design and functionalities.

Besides full control over sample combustion, the Xprep C-IC not only collects the oxidised gas stream but also automatically transfers a fraction of the absorbance solution to any renowned IC system. The ideal solution to cover the increasing demand for analysis of corrosive halogens (fluor, chlorine, bromine, iodine) and sulphur compounds (e.g. sulphate, sulphite, thiosulphate) in different matrices. These analytes need to be monitored because they are corrosive, poison catalysts, damage industrial equipment, and are harmful to the environment.

TE Instruments developed a fully automated, extremely compact sample preparation system covering oxidative pyrohydrolytic combustion, fraction collection, and sample injection towards the IC. The Xprep C-IC can introduce samples both via optimised direct injection (liquids module) and conventional boat-inlet (boat module) into a horizontal furnace. This automated sample-prep solution reduces the complexity of sample transfer and significantly improves user convenience.

In the past years, there has been a change in demand in terms of maximised throughput, system robustness, and optimised benchtop utilisation. Instruments need to be easy, fast, reliable, and small. To be ready for the future TE Instruments continues to strive for more innovative solutions for the elemental combustions market.
