Lab Manager's Independent Guide to Purchasing an Elemental Analyzer

Laboratories worldwide use elemental analyzers for measuring the carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and halogen content in samples such as chemical-reaction products, soil, bodily fluids, and waste or drinking water. Benchtop elemental analyzers come in a variety of types for specific applications: total organic content (TOC), total organic halogens (TOX), nitrogen, nitrogen concentration relative to protein (nitrogen derived from protein molecules), and CHN analyzers, named after the three most common elements they measure—carbon (C), hydrogen (H), nitrogen (N).

This purchasing guide presents models of benchtop elemental analyzers currently available for the laboratory. Read More

LECO Corporation CNS-2000 leaking
I had high results for Nitrogen in my Leco CNS2000 and according to the diagnostic test for combustion there is a leak somewhere in this circuit. Ballast and Helium tests passed successfully. I changed all the o'rings, tested again but the leak is still there.  Is there a way to locate in which part of the oxygen circuit I have this leak? I tried to bypass the anhydrone filters but it didn't help. Advise this member.
