Abstract

High-temperature combustion is a particularly effective tool for analyzing carbon and sulfur in a variety of materials. This article describes a typical combustion system and addresses key application considerations, including accelerators that aid in the combustion process; filters, traps, and catalysts that keep unwanted oxide compounds in check; and choices in infrared and thermal-conductive detectors for measuring CO<sub>2</sub> and SO<sub>2</sub>. The article also explains the difference between total and selective combustion, and discusses the impact on sample preparation and test results.
