FLASH 2000 NC Analyzer

Thermo Scientific FLASH 2000 NC Analyzer delivers rapid, precise and environmentally friendly determinations of nitrogen and carbon in geological and agriculture materials.

Determines 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. Easy-to-use, comprehensive instrument is ideal for geology and environmental agronomy laboratories, as accurate determination of carbon and nitrogen provides these laboratories with a powerful tool to check on material variations due to natural mutations or pollution.

  • 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; oxidation reactor reaches a temperature of 1800°C, allowing complete conversion to elemental gas of even those samples containing refractory material
  • 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
  • Provides a quick analytical cycle; rapid methodology requires less than 5 minutes for a complete sample characterization
  • Process can be easily automated with solid or liquid autosamplers
  • Dedicated chromatography column connected to highly sensitive thermal conductivity detector ensures wide detection range from 100 ppm to 100%
  • Unlike traditional techniques, such as Kjeldahl for nitrogen and Pringer and Lee/Walkley and Black for organic carbon, operations with the FLASH 2000 NC Analyzer do not involve any toxic or polluting substances
  • Eliminates need for exhaust fans and fume hoods and the expensive disposal of analytical residues
  • Simplicity of design, coupled with accuracy owed to the electronic carrier gas controls, results in constant reproducibility and reduced number of calibrations
  • System features very short instrument maintenance time
  • Configurability makes it possible to modify the analyzer at any time to accommodate an extended range of market applications for NC analyses
  • Dedicated Eager Xperience software is able to satisfy virtually every analytical request (i.e., evaluate and present the data, and provide personalized reporting and dedicated features for QC labs)
  • Upgradable to automatic simultaneous determination of Nitrogen/Carbon/Sulfur or Sulfur only; TOC after off-line sample pretreatment
  • Sulfur determinations are made possible by flame photometric detector (FPD)
Compatible with: 
System can be connected with an IRMS (Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometer) for the accurate determination of Nitrogen and Carbon Isotope Rations. Compatible with MAS 200R Universal Autosampler and AI 3000 and AS 3000 Liquid Autosamplers.
Certifications: Certified to meet Official Methods and the numerous international round robin tests implemented for every type of soil, rock, and other geological material.
