Your TOC analysis has never been easier with LECO’s solutions
Carbon is an essential building block of life on our planet. The amount of Carbon present is an important factor in soils and agriculture samples.
The determination of TOC in solids has recently become ever more important, not just for evaluating wastes but TOC content measurements are also an important aspect of assessing soils.
The Carbon present in soil organic matter is referred to as organic Carbon. Soil organic Carbon is a vital component of productive agriculture. In addition sequestration of Carbon in agricultural soils has been recognised as a tool to mitigate climate change.
LECO provides innovative and timesaving analytical instrumentation for the analysis of organic Carbon content.
Specific Advantages Including
- Market leading analytical performance
- Simplified sample preparation
- Robust & reliable instrumentation
- Unsurpassed instrument flexibility
- Adhering to all the current standards, such as ISO 10694, BS EN 17505 and EN 15936
Instrument Portfolio for TOC Analysis
CS744 // Carbon analysis by combustion
Redefine the way you determine carbon in soils and plant tissues with our 744 series. Using extensive customer feedback and innovative engineering, the 744 takes advantage of our immersive CORNERSTONE® brand software platform and a number of features, such as an improved IR cell design and available automation, come together to increase usability, lab productivity, and lower your cost-per-analysis.Request CS744
RC612 // Multi-Phase Carbon And Water Determination
Get fast, reliable carbon and water determination with our RC612. The RC612 is a resistance furnace multiphase carbon and moisture determinator which quantifies the carbon and moisture present in soils and plant tissues and illustrates the source of several types of carbon. The RC612 features a state-of-the-art furnace control system, which allows the temperature of the furnace to be stepped and ramped from near ambient to 1,100 °C, in either oxidative or reductive carrier gas. The RC612 utilizes an afterburner furnace that ensures complete combustion of volatile species released at lower primary furnace temperatures.Request RC612
SC832 // Sulfur And Carbon Analysis
LECO’s 832 series of Elemental Determinators are specifically designed to perform carbon and sulfur analysis of soil, plant tissue and other organic and some inorganic materials. The 832 series is a valuable resource for any laboratory needing fast and accurate analysis.Request SC832

On-demand Presentation // Watch the recorded Webinar
Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Determination in Soil Using Acid Treatment and Temperature Differentiation
Presented by Jeffery Gast
The presentation will outline TOC determination in soil using two different approaches. First, we will explore the use of acid treatment of the soil to remove carbonates followed by analysis using conventional combustion techniques. Next, we will explore using a ramped furnace temperature approach to differentiate organic and inorganic carbon species. TOC results from both approaches will be presented.
