    In its mission to process aqueous samples for the analysis of TOC, total inorganic carbon (TIC), and non-purgeable organic carbon (NPOC), the Aurora 1030C has been known to reduce maintenance costs. Built with a patented* dual chamber combustion reactor for employing the high temperature combustion technique, the 1030C’s first reactor chamber contains a bed of quartz to protect the platinum catalyst in the second chamber from deposition of noncombustible constituents, and ensures consistent oxidation conditions for stable blanks. As a result, this reactor design extends catalyst life and reduces instrument maintenance costs.

    The high temperature combustion technique is most effective for analysis of samples containing high molecular weight, difficult-to-oxidize organics (e.g; humic acid) at levels > 500 ppb C. The Aurora 1030C supports USEPA-approved methods, Standard Methods, ASTM, DIN/ISO/CEN, and EU Methods in the applications of: drinking water, wastewater, ground water, surface water, the disinfection byproduct rule, potable water, and seawater.
