COME AND SEE US AT
Come and see us on Stand C17 at Lab Innovations 2017,
1-2 November 2017 at the NEC, Birmingham. We will be showing
TOC analysers and mercury analysers from our Teledyne Leeman
range, microwave digestion and other sample preparation equipment
from Berghof and fluorescence and UV-Vis spectrophotometers
Specifically we will have the Lotix
and Torch TOC analysers,
and Hydra IIc
mercury analysers, Speedwave
Xpert microwave digestion system and high
pressure reactors and the U-2900
UV-Vis spectrophotometer and F-7100
This is a great opportunity to see a comprehensive selection
of equipment from our range in a single location. The show
is completely free to attend and registration
is open now. We hope to see you there!
TERRA TEK ADDS SOLIDS SAMPLING
TO TOC ANALYSER
Terra Tek, one of the largest providers of in-situ and
laboratory geotechnical and chemical testing services in the
UK site investigation sector, has recently added the LSS
Boat solids sampling module to its Lotix TOC analyser
at its Birmingham Laboratory.
The Lotix TOC analyser
from Teledyne Leeman Labs was introduced into Terra Tek's
well-equipped UKAS/Mcerts accredited chemistry testing laboratory
in 2016 to provide the capability for accurate and reliable
measurement of carbon down to the ppb level. The 30-position,
conveyor style autosampler ensures rapid sample throughput
for this busy lab which carries out analysis of contaminated
land, leachates, waters and building materials (concrete,
lime and cement).
David Bowen, Chemistry Supervisor at Terra Tek's Birmingham
Laboratory, said: "We have been delighted with the performance
of the Lotix analyser, and as we handle such a wide variety
of samples including soils, sludges and sediments, it made
sense to add the solids sampling accessory. Now we can measure
the carbon content directly from these diverse matrices. The
unit was installed with switching valves to allow us to easily
switch between solid and liquid samples."
Hydra IIC capabilities extended for petrochemical
The capabilities of the versatile Hydra
IIC mercury analyser have been further extended to include
the determination of mercury in petrochemical samples.
A new change to the Hydra IIC's Envoy control software now
allows the analyzer to be used in volatile hydrocarbon combustion
mode (CAAVHC). This mode will allow for direct determination
of Hg in light to heavy petroleum distillates, various refined
oils, raw petroleum products and other highly volatile samples.
This new software package allows for method ASTM 7623 and
a UOP 938 equivalent.

mode by downloading an application note entitled: 'Coleman®
