  State of the Art - Fully Automated and Matrix-Optimized Gas Analysis with multi EA 5000

The analysis of gaseous matrices is still a real challenge. No matrix type is as versatile in its behavior and the requirements for sample feed and combustion process.

Multi EA 5000 for Micro Elemental AnalysisThis makes it difficult to gain quick, precise, and reliable results. Thanks to the outstanding flexibility of the application-optimized gas sampling systems, the elemental analyzer multi EA® 5000 can analyze liquefied gases (LPG), pressurized gases (methane), but also none pressurized (expanded) gases for element contents in the range of ultra traces up to percentages. In only one single cycle, the sulfur, nitrogen, carbon, and chlorine content is determined...
