Combustion IC Analyzers (S, Fl, Cl, Br, & I)

Combustion IC Analyzers (S, Fl, Cl, Br, & I)

Nittoseiko has revolutionized the analysis of halogens and sulphur with the introduction of the AQF-2100H (Auto Quick Furnace), creating a new, fully automated technique termed CIC or “Combustion Ion Chromatography”.

Combustion Ion Chromatography is achieved by interfacing an Ion Chromatograph to the AQF-2100H (Auto Quick Furnace) with Nittoseiko’s GA-100 (Gas Adsorption Unit). Now there is available for the first time a fully automated system which can measure and speciate Total Halogens (F, Cl, Br and I) and Sulphur in a single analysis.

Nittoseiko has applied its vast knowledge and years of expertise in analytical combustion techniques in developing the Combustion Ion Chromatography method and AQF-2100H. The end result is a powerful, robust, flexible and reliable analytical system applicable to solids, liquids, gases and LPG’s.

The AQF-2100H and CIC technique is an ideal alternative to existing cumbersome, dangerous manual methods and techniques. The full automation of ASTM, ISO, DIN, JIS and UOP methodologies is now possible with the AQF-2100H and CIC System.
