Thermo Scientific FLASH 2000 NC Analyzer (formerly the Flash EA1112) delivers rapid, precise and environmentally friendly determinations of nitrogen and carbon in geological and agriculture materials. The Flash is capable of determining nitrogen and carbon in geological and agriculture materials such as soils, sediments or particulate materials obtained by filtration of sea, river, lake, or tap water. This easy-to-use, comprehensive instrument is ideal for geology and environmental agronomy laboratories, as accurate determination of carbon and nitrogen ratios provide these laboratories with a powerful tool to check on material variations due to natural mutations or pollution.
The Thermo Scientific FLASH 2000 is based on the well-known process of Flash Dynamic Combustion, which produces complete combustion of the sample followed by an accurate and precise determination of the elemental gases produced.
Suitable for organic or inorganic samples the oxidation reactor reaches a temperature of 1800°C, allowing complete conversion to elemental gas of even those samples containing refractory material and converts compounds to gas without use of dilution, gas chamber, gas sampling valve, splitting, or purge and trap pathway, operations which could introduce deviations or errors. The Flash NC SOIL provides a quick analytical cycle; rapid methodology requires less than 6 minutes for a complete sample characterization and is upgradable to automatic simultaneous determination of Nitrogen/Carbon/Sulfur or Sulfur only; TOC after off-line sample pretreatment.
