The CSBox-HFA analyzer combines the first high frequency exclusive furnace without the old oscillator tube technology commonly used for Carbon & Sulfur analysis in the world.
The CSBox-HFA analyzer combines the first high frequency exclusive furnace without the old oscillator tube technology commonly used for Carbon & Sulfur analysis in the world. With new 100% static infrared cells, 12 kg, 3.5 kW, 12 Volts for the furnace coil: more power, more security, more robust, lighter, smaller, cheaper.
CSBox-HFA is an equipment for the Carbon and the Sulfur Determination in Inorganic & Metals. The system consists in one CSBox connected with the new generation of high frequency furnace, served by an automatic lift for the crucible loading-unloading. Reliable and precise results, here, as example, BAS-BCS 472/2 reference material, analyzed without the use of calcinated crucibles.
HF Running Principles
For a steel analysis, a one-gram sample is placed in a ceramic crucible with some amount of accelerator (copper or tungsten or tin). The crucible is placed on the high frequency combustion chamber. Under an oxygen flow during the quick high power induction heating stage, the steel is burned releasing CO2 and SO2 gases. The gases filtered, then dried, and analyzed by the infrared cells inside the CSBox in a continuous flow. The results and the combustion curves are displayed in real time and stored in the database of the USB connected computer. Because of the exclusive design of the combustion system, the combustion tube is cleaned during the loading-unloading of the crucible. All the periodic cleaning do not require the use of any tools, and can be done by a not specialist staff in your lab. The Security is Maximum (the voltage in the HF device never exceeds 15 volts, the combustions are under low oxygen pressure for limit loss of metal by splashing and for reducing the dust generation).
They also use the same consumables (crucibles, accelerators, etc.) as those used with ordinary CS Analyzers
Samples are accurately weighed on the interfaced electronic balance. The sample weight is automatically transfered into the stack area of the memory. the analysis time depends on analyzed sample (generally between 30 – 40 seconds).
the computer drives the CSBox through a USB port, so you can use a dedicated computer or your laptop.
