Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analyser
is a specialised equipment that can record and provide helpful insights into the level of organic carbon in bodies of water such as rivers, lakes, streams and artificial ones like dams and water reservoirs. TOC Analyser is also helpful for various industries such as pharmaceuticals, wastewater plants, and manufacturing plants in checking the water quality they are utilising for laboratory tests. Monitor the organic carbon content of the water you are using at a safe degree with our TOC Analyser.
A TOC analyser is frequently used to continuously track changes or lack thereof in organic content. A method of analysis called total organic carbon analysis is used to assess the quality of water. A TOC analyser can be used to quantify total organic carbon. This functions by oxidising the organic component into a quantifiable form. Carbon Dioxide is created when organic carbon is oxidised; this quantity can then be measured and its value transformed into a TOC measurement. Calculating this value and then deducting the inorganic carbon which is the amount of dissolved carbon dioxide and carbonic salts, is how TOC analysis is done.
What is Total Organic Carbon (TOC)?
TOC refers to the total amount of carbon in organic compounds present in a sample, typically in water. It includes carbon from various organic sources such as humic acids, proteins, carbohydrates, and more.
Why is it important to measure TOC?
TOC measurement is important in various industries like water treatment, pharmaceuticals, and environmental monitoring, as it helps assess the organic content, purity, and potential for organic contamination in water and other liquids.
How does a TOC analyzer work?
A TOC analyzer typically employs high-temperature combustion or chemical oxidation methods to convert all organic carbon in a sample into carbon dioxide (CO2). The generated CO2 is then quantified using different detection techniques like non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) spectroscopy or conductivity measurements. By measuring the amount of CO2 produced, the analyzer can calculate the TOC concentration in the sample.
