High-temperature combustion is primarily used to determine carbon and sulfur contained in a variety of materials. This article illustrates the principle of combustion and focuses on the characteristics of accelerators. It provides information on the process of separating oxide compounds formed in the combustion zone. The article provides information on infrared and thermal-conductive detectors, which are used for the detection of CO2 and SO2. Finally, it addresses the requirements of a sample to undergo total and selective combustion, and presents examples showing the applications of high-temperature combustion. .
Inert gas fusion is a method of determining the quantitative content of gases in ferrous and nonferrous materials where gases, such as hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen, are physically and chemically adsorbed by the materials and later removed and swept by from the fusion area by an inert carrier gas. This article describes the operating principles and sample selection of inert gas fusion. It explains the mechanisms involved in the introduction of fusion gas, separation and detection of fusion gas by thermal-conductive and infrared detection methods. Additionally, the article explains the methods used for analyzing trace amounts of nitrogen, oxygen, and hydrogen in the carrier mediums, providing examples that aid in solving several problems.
