Thermo Scientific™ Flash 2000
The Thermo Scientific Flash 2000 Series is designed for simultaneous determination of carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen (CHN) in solid or liquid samples. An exothermic reaction of oxygen with the tin capsule raises the temperature in the reactor to 1800 °C for a few seconds. At this high temperature both organic and inorganic substances are converted into elemental gases which, after further reduction, are separated in a chromatographic column and finally detected by a highly sensitive thermal conductivity detector (TCD).
Alternatively, also sulfur can be determined on another reactor (CHNS). Only non-fluorinated samples can be analyzed.
