Equipment Description

The ELEMENTRAC OH-p is an oxygen and hydrogen analyzer in inorganic samples based on thermal extraction with carrier gas and equipped with a pulse oven that reaches temperatures above 3000 ° C.

The ELEMENTRAC OH-p is characterized by its precision and speed, as well as offering a wide variety of application possibilities for the analysis of metals, ceramics and inorganic samples.

The ELEMENTRAC OH-p can be equipped with up to 2 independent infrared cells that allow you to determine the oxygen content in both high and low concentrations. The hydrogen concentration in the sample is measured by a robust and highly sensitive thermal conductivity cell.
