Portable TOC Analyzer Takes the Lab to the Field

The Sievers 900 Portable TOC Analyzer, weighing only 12.5 kg and measuring 35.6 x 22.3 x 46.5 cm, is the first portable TOC analyzer of its kind, bringing the lab to the field, according to the company. It can be hand-carried anywhere for on-line measurement, used for grab samples, or connected to an autosampler for high volume applications in a laboratory.

It does not require external reagents or gas supplies and boasts a four-minute analysis time and a 0.03 to 50 ppb measurement range. The 900 Portable’s color touch-screen display provides a menu to quickly establish operating parameters, such as setup and automated calibration procedures, and to graph historical or real-time data.

A USB drive enables easy data transfer.The Analyzer was engineered for ease of use and cost-effective operation, requiring no external reagents or gas supplies. It typically needs a few hours of preventive maintenance annually.
