800 Series TEA

800 Series TEA

The Thermal Energy Analyser (TEA) has been an industry standard for nitrosamine analysis since its introduction thanks to its incredible sensitivity and almost infinite selectivity for nitrogen containing compounds. The all new TEA 800 Series was designed with input from users of older model TEA's from the outset to ensure this new model delivered everything customers wanted. Thanks to this input the TEA is now smaller, easier to service and simpler to operate, whilst still retaining the same great analyticial performance as its predecessors.

Easier to use

  • Controllable by PC via USB or RS232
  • Simple and intuitive operation
  • Pyrolyser temperature selectable from 250 to 850C for nitro or nitroso modes
  • Optional separate 850C catalytic pyrolyser for nitrogen mode
  • Nitro/Nitroso modes eliminate interfering nitrogen compounds
  • Optional CTR filters to remove pyrolysis by-products

Easier to Service

  • Modern design allows easier servicing
  • compatible with most GC's

Compact Size

  • Saves valuable bench space
  • Foot print only 38 x 37 cm

New Refillable Ozone traps

  • New design means only the trap material needs to be replaced not the whole ozone trap

Industry Standard Performance

  • Uses Proven technology and principles
  • Near infinite selectivity for nitrogen containing compounds
  • High Sensitivity

Choice of Pumps

  • Vacuum pump now external for easy servicing
  • Oil-free pump option

Typical analyses performed by the 800 Series TEA

  • Firearm discharge trace anlyses - identifies type and source of propellant
  • Post-blast debris analyses - identifies origin of explosives even from dirty samples
  • Quality Control - monitors quality of product formulations and checking for deterioration during storage
  • Environmental analyses - provides compliance checks on plant air and effluents.
  • Medical Monitoring - identifies trace amounts of such vasodilators as nitroglycerine, and isosorbide dinitrate and its metabolites, in blood or serum, even in the presence of proteins and lipid contaminants.
