Total Organic Carbon

Uitrusting/faciliteit: Uitrusting



    Total organic carbon (TOC) is the amount of carbon found in an organic compound and is often used as a nonspecific indicator of water quality. The organic carbon in water and wastewater is composed of a variety of organic compounds in various oxidation states. The TOC analyzer determines the Total Carbon (TC) and the Inorganic Carbon (IC) (dissolved carbon dioxide and carbonic acid salts). Subtracting the IC from the TC yields the Total Organic Carbon.

    The TOC oxidizes by catalytic combustion at 680 oC organic carbon including the hard-to-decompose insoluble organic components to carbon dioxide (CO2). The CO2 is measured directly by a nondispersive infrared analyzer in the range 4 and 30,000 ppm/L.
