Catalysts with zirconia support for Shimadzu® TOC-L/V series

Elemental Microanalysis, a leading global supplier to the elemental analysis market, is pleased to release a series of platinum TOC catalysts: B1609, B1610 and B1611.

Developed by Element’s in-house R&D team, these catalysts are intended as direct replacement for the standard platinum catalysts offered by Shimadzu for TOC–L and TOC– V analysers. Elemental’s TOC catalysts use a zirconia support, rather than alumina; there is both a colour and a weight difference when compared to the OEM catalyst.

Elemental’s zirconia catalysts offer advantages over the original OEM catalyst:

  •  lower blank values - leading to lower practical limit of quantification
  • stabilises more quickly - allowing faster conditioning of catalyst when installing a new reaction tube
  • longer lifetime – offering a greater number of sample runs before replacement
  • more robust – making it less prone to physical degradation

In addition to the new TOC catalysts, Elemental Microanalysis offers a large range of consumables for the Shimadzu TOC–L/V series analysers, including: combustion tubes, halogen scrubbers, platinum gauze, O-rings, and other operational accessories.
