When analysing alfalfa, the TGA801 drops the process down to two easy steps: select your method and load your samples. From these two steps, up to 19 samples can be simultaneously run, with atmosphere and ventilation control happening automatically. Moisture, volatile, and ash results can all be obtained from those 19 samples in a single run. The automated instrument removes the need for transferring samples and limits opportunities for operator error to effect the results.
In the end, the TGA801 was able to produce accurate moisture, volatile dry, and ash dry percentages for multiple samples of biomass in a fraction of the time taken by conventional oven drying methods. Check out the application note to learn more about the details!
