Exeter Analytical - Accurate and safe way to determine Halogens, Sulphur, Phosphorus content

November 19th 2018

November 2018

The Oxygen Flask Combustion Unit (OFCU) from Exeter Analytical, provides a highly safe tool for preparing samples for elemental analysis of Halogens, Sulphur, Phosphorus and a number of metals using the Schöniger flask method.

The Schöniger flask method is a well-proven technique for combusting samples prior to elemental analysis by Ion Chromatography or Titration. The Schöniger flask method using the attractively priced OFCU-1 is capable of being used for repeatable determination of elemental composition from percentage levels to parts per million.

The durably constructed Oxygen Flask Combustion Unit (OFCU-1) copes easily with a wide range of sample types and is very simple to set up, use and maintain. Built with operator safety in mind, the OFCU-1 remotely ignites samples inside a safety interlocked chamber using focused infrared heat from two tungsten-halogen lamps. Integral pressure vents ensure safe release of excess reaction pressure. A thick black acrylic observation window is provided on the OFCU-1 to allow users to visually check ignition has taken place.
