StarTOC - Semi - Automatic High Temp Combustion and UV/Persulfate TOC Analyzer
StarTOC Semi-Automatic Bench Top TOC is a low cost, accurate analyzer which utilizes components and software from the StarTOC Family of computer-controlled automated TOCs. Since operation and maintenance are extremely simple, it may be the analyzer of choice when less than 20 samples per day are to be analyzed.
- Stand-Alone (No External Computer)
- Simple to Operate
- Multi-Sample Sparge Station
- Rapid Analysis
- UV/Heated Persulfate
- High Temperature Combustion (Option)
- Fully Compliant with EPA & Standard Methods
- Accurate Results
Excellent TOC accuracy from low parts-per-million to 1,000 ppm undiluted TOC concentrations, with minimum maintenance.
High Temperature Combustion
For difficult to oxidize or high TOC concentration samples requiring good accuracy of analysis.
TOC Systems’ Semi-Automatic Benchtop is a low-cost, accurate TOC analyzer which utilizes components and software from TOC Systems’ family of computer-controlled au- tomated TOCs. Since operation and maintenance are very simple, this model may be the analyzer of choice when less than 20 samples per day are to be analyzed.
The StarTOC Semi-Automatic analyzer is capable of TOC, TIC, and TC analysis using the following methods:
Sample is mixed with acid, lowering the pH to 2.0. This converts the inorganic carbon to dissolved CO 2 , which is Air/O 2 stripped out of he solution. Reagent is added if re- quired and the remaining organic carbon is then oxidized in the Reactor to form CO 2 , which is detected by the NDIR as a direct correlation to TOC.
1. Turn power switch on.
2. Add 0.2 ml acid to sample tube and sparge Three minutes (TOC).
3. Draw sample into syringe and place at sample injection port.
4. Inject sample as prompted by computer.
5. Read TOC value.
- Specific, Interference-Free CO2 Detection
- Dual-Wavelength Ratioing Compensates for Drift
- Computer-Controlled for Accuracy
- Sapphire Protected Optics
- Non-Corrosive, Non-Reflective Sample Cell (Borosilicate)
- No Moving Parts for Easy Maintenance and Service
- No Critical Realignment Required
The NDIR CO2 detector uses a solid-state, dual-wavelength system with a single borosilicate glass sample cell that requires no wall reflectivity or removal of acid gases. There is a reference and a CO 2 specific detector in the sample path. Use of the true zero filter eliminates water vapor interference. An infrared source is cycled on and off to avoid mechanical choppers required in alternate NDIRs. The Star NDIR has no moving parts.
Automatic gain control (AGC) is employed during the reference/ sample cycle to compensate for such factors as IR source dete- rioration, dirty optical windows, and detector gain changes. All critical optics are protected by sapphire windows. The sample cell can be easily removed and the windows cleaned within 3 minutes, without realignment or the use of any tools.
