IRMS: Thermochemical Elemental Analyzer (TC/EA)


The TC/EA is a high temperature (1350°C to 1450°C) device that thermally decomposes samples in a carbon reducing environment to break down waters, organic, and inorganic samples (nitrates, phosphates, and sulphates). In our current lab configuration the TC/EA is coupled to the MAT 253.

  • Determination of total C, H, N, and O content in a wide range of organic and inorganic substances. Coupling the TC/EA to the MAT 253 allows us to measure H and O ratios of waters and solids.
