Full application range with remarkable accuracy and precision

The TE Instruments XPLORER micro coulometric series is a welcome upgrade for your existing Total Halogens and Total Sulphur analysis.

The TX/TS analyzer blends into every laboratory environment, whether it is for R&D, Refinery, Chemical or Petrochemical applications.
The XPLORER series is able to handle the mall without any exception. Its robustness and precision are ideal for R&D, Refineries, Surveyor testing laboratories and chemical plants.

 


     
Anything goes  

The XPLORER series is capable of handling all sorts of samples and applications. The TX/TS combustion analyzer handles liquids, solids, liquefied gas and gas samples. Changing from the liquids & gas mode to solids was never easier. Just push one button and the liquids & gas module is automatically retracted from the hot area. No clamps or manual locking. It will take about 45 seconds to change into the solids mode. Simply choose the pre-loaded sample list and run.

 
Manual or Robotics

There is still a choice as to how you'd like to run your samples. Just a couple of samples a day or 24/7. For liquids, there is an integrated automatic syringe driver. It offers full control over the desired volume and speed of injection. For solids introduction, there is an integrated software controlled boat drive. Both features do come standard with every XPLORER.

If the choice is full automation, a robotic XYZ auto sampler handles all liquids. There is even a vertical introduction module, allowing direct liquid injection either by boat or by vaporizer. For LPG's and Gas, there is a revolutionary, fully automated GLS sampler.

It can run as a stand-alone, method driven, gas sampler, using a touch screen as user interface. Connected to the powerfull TEIS software it simply runs in slave mode to the XPLORER . Handling solid samples can be executed by the Newton auto sampler. It handles sample cups for various applications. No matter what choice you make: every bench marking design feature, enhances the overall quality, saves time and significantly reduces the need for spare parts.

Oid we already mention your bench space savings? Up to 3 times, compared to other manufactures.

Spot-on Analysis, higher productivity

Coulometric determination of Chlorine and Sulphur is an absolute technique and calibrating the analyzer isn't a requirement. The accuracy is automatically verified using a control standard. The overall analysis of hydrocarbons at ultra-low concentrations has an unprecedented precision of 1.5%. In addition to boost the overall productivity, an auto diluter is part of the XYZ sampler offering. Instead of injecting a smaller volume, auto dilution is an option.


The XPLORER TX/TS has it all.

  CHLORINE CELL - How does it work?

Samples are introduced, with the appropriate introduction module, into a furnace, where they are oxidized at high temperature. The combustion gas, carrying halide ions, is led into a sulphuric acid scrubber for rapid water and interference removal. The dried and clean gas is led into the temperature controlled titration cell, where the halide ions react with silver ions, present in the titration cell.

The amount of charge (the integral of the regeneration current over the measuring time) used to regenerate the lost silver ions, is directly related to the Halogen content of the sample.

Sulphur CELL - How does it work?

Samples are introduced, with the appropriate introduction module, into a furnace, where they are oxidized at high temperature. The combustion gas, carrying Sulphur dioxide (S02), is led into a sulphuric acid scrubber for rapid water and interference removal. The dried and clean gas is led into the temperature controlled titration cell, where the Sulphur dioxide reacts with Tri-iodine, present in the titration cell.

The amount of charge (the integral of the regeneration current over the measuring time) used to regenerate the lost Tri-iodine,
is directly related to the Sulphur content of the sample
