Equipment Description

ELTRA's CS-580A is the ideal analyzer for the simultaneous determination of carbon and sulfur in organic samples.

ELTRA 580A series analyzers also have an autosampler (A = Autoloader). This feature allows you to analyze a large number of samples without the need for surveillance. The autosampler is offered in two different versions: for 36 and for 130 crucibles. The CS-580A is based on the same technology as the CS-580, but features a vertical resistance furnace with a ceramic tube.

The oven temperature can be programmed in steps from 1 ° C to 1550 ° C. Thanks to the possibility of using crucibles with a capacity of up to 500 mg, this instrument is ideal for the analysis of heterogeneous samples. Depending on customer needs, the 580 Series C & S analyzers can be equipped with up to 4 independent infrared cells, offering enormous flexibility for a wide variety of applications.
