The TOC-810 represents the newest generation of LFE's on-line TOC-analyzers. These have proven themselves with considerable success in use at many chemical plants as well as other important industrial companies since the beginning of the '80s.
The LFE TOC-810 has evolved out of real-world applications as an on-line analyzer for the continuous TOC registration of highly- as well as low contaminated water. The demands placed on every component of such an on-line TOC-analyzer require special design solutions.
Continuous analysis with nearly 100% carbon conversion
Special detail solutions for highest operational reliability
Comprehensive intelligent self-monitoring
Outstanding reactor service-life
Extraordinarily stable measuring characteristics
LFE develops and manufactures key components in order to attain exceptionally stable measuring characteristics.
Signal & status outputs
Aside from the intentional removal of inorganically bound carbon (TIC) the sparger air can also inadvertently expel volatile organic carbon (VOC) compounds which escape detection.
The TOC-810 can be fitted with an optional package in conjunction with a 2nd photometer channel which simultaneously and continuously measures the VOC-level independent of the TOC- (or DOC-) analysis.
The potentially VOC-enriched sparger air is split into two parallel gas streams each containing the CO2 background level representative of the TIC level of the water sample as well as possible VOC.
The difference in IR radiation absorption in the photometer channel corresponds to the VOC concentration of the water sample.
The inherent response of a differential NDIR photometer to varying background levels is dynamically corrected for by the implementation of LFE's patented gain stabilization / common mode rejection algorithm.
First introduced by LFE in 1989, this unique method totally eliminates the need for a CO2 scrubber. The resultant maintenance requirements for the VOC analysis are minimal.
