In the evaluation of industrial process waters and wastewaters, of particular interest is organic carbon contamination from either microbial or synthetic derivatives, due to their possible environmental impact. High temperature combustion total organic carbon analyzers provide the most efficient way to measure organic carbon in these waters. The furnace parameters for high temperature combustion analyzers dictate the oxidation effectiveness of the sample carbon, which in turn affects the total organic carbon results.

This presentation will cover the analytical effects of temperature, catalyst type and combustion tube configuration on total organic carbon analysis.
