Precise carbon / sulfur analysis with flexible measuring range

The new ELEMENTRAC CS-i was developed for accurate and reliable analysis of carbon and sulfur in inorganic materials like steel, cast iron, copper, ore, cement, ceramics, or glass. It uses an induction furnace for sample combustion as well as highly sensitive IR cells to determine C/S concentrations. The measuring range may be adapted to the user’s specific requirements.


The robust ELEMENTRAC CS-i offers some new performance features which make the analysis process even more easy and convenient:

Freely selectable configuration of
each IR cell

New vacuum system ensures high er measurement precision and sta bility

Heated dust trap allows for im proved sulfur detection

Optimized catalyst reactor permits
more accurate carbon detection

New ELEMENTS software with
comprehensive diagnosis and anal ysis tools


The ELEMENTRAC CS-i may be equipped with IR cells of different sensitivity for carbon and sulfur, according to the customer’s requirements. The CS-i is not only available in standard configuration with two IR cells for carbon and sulfur respectively, but also in individual configurations with single IR cells. Defined measuring ranges (for example, high carbon content in cast iron, low sulfur content in steel) may be freely combined thus allowing for economic configuration of the ELEMENTRAC CS-i.
