LECO announced the addition of hydrogen analysis capabilities to the 828 series, which will transform the way users determine carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen in a variety of petrochemical and other organic materials. The CHN828 maintains the core capabilities and performance of previous generations of LECO macro-combustion instruments while possessing key improvements in throughput, uptime and reliability. By incorporating state-of-the-art hardware and an on-board touch-screen software platform with rapid analysis times, the CHN828 operates at a low cost-per-analysis and allows users to easily handle the most demanding sample applications.

The CHN828 features a custom interface designed specifically for touch-screen operation with LECO’s exclusive Cornerstone brand software, which enables complete access to analysis control, method settings, diagnostics, reporting and more — without sacrificing valuable bench space. The Cornerstone Mobile option provides access to data, plots and instrument status from the user’s smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.

Users can maximize their lab’s efficiency and productivity with a number of 828 series advantages, including rapid cycle analysis times as low as 2.8 minutes and an optional 120-sample position autoloader.
