Elemental analysers play a vital role in the reliable determination of fuels such as coal, coke, and bio fuels. ELTRA® offers several analysers have been specifically optimized for fuel and energy applications and play an important role in the accurate elemental analysis of coal, coke, bio fuels, secondary fuels and oils.
The effective calorific value of fuels depends on their respective carbon and hydrogen content. When secondary fuels are combusted, for example, a significant amount of water is formed from the hydrogen content, which must then be vaporized through a rotary tube furnace. This procedure significantly reduces the calorific value. The CHS-r is ideal for analysing and controlling this content; while the CHS-580A offers additional capabilities with high throughput auto-sampler options.
The efficient combination of induction and resistance furnace in one analyzer the CS-d with ELTRA Dual Furnace Technology results in an economical solution for the elemental analysis of carbon and sulfur in construction materials.The resistance furnace is ideal for analyses of combustible materials like coal, coke or secondary fuels.
The TGA Thermostep is a programmable thermogravimetric analyzer with an integrated balance, which determines various parameters such as moisture, volatiles and ash in fuels or the LOI in cement at user-defined temperatures and atmospheres in a single analysis.
