Trace Elemantal Analysis

Trace Elemental Analysis

Trace Elemental Analysis (TEA) is a group of analytical techniques that are very important in Environmental Analysis, Metallurgy, Food & Beverage and Pharmaceutical industries. Using Trace Elemental Analysis, most of the elements of the Periodic Table can be determined in a very broad range of solid, liquid and gaseous samples. This is done with a variety of analytical methods.

  • Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP-OES, ICP-MS)
  • Total Organic Halogen (TOX)
  • Total Organic Carbon, Total Nitrogen (TOC, TN)
  • Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (AAS)
  • A variety of elemental analysis to determine Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Sulfur and Oxygen (CHNS or CHNOS)

Examples of applications

  • Mass Flow Controllers (MFC) supplying carrier gas flow in CHNS, TN, TOX, TOC and several other analysers
  • Flow control of plasma gas in ICP
  • Flow control of nebulizer, auxiliary/sheath and purge gases in ICP
  • Collision/Reaction Cell gas flow control
  • Gas flow control in AAS with safety line for burner system
