InnovOx Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analyzers

Sievers InnovOx On-Line Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analyzer


GE Analytical Instruments designed the new Sievers InnovOx Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analyzer to provide industry-leading sample handling robustness and instrument uptime for process, environmental, and wastewater TOC Analysis.The InnovOx On-Line joins the InnovOx Laboratory Analyzer in offering GE’s innovative Supercritical Water Oxidation technology for improved reliability, uptime, and robust handling of challenging sample matrices such as brine.

The new Sievers InnovOx On-Line Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analyzer represents a true breakthrough in high TOC measurement technology and reliability. The InnovOx (short for innovative oxidation) can consecutively handle thousands of common—as well as difficult samples such as brine and cellulose—with unprecedented system uptime. The InnovOx offers unparalleled oxidation robustness, a dynamic linear working range of 0.5 to 50,000 ppm, 6-month calibration curve stability, user-configurable alarms and outputs, and an intuitive color touch-screen display.

The InnovOx is extremely easy to set up, operate, and maintain, and offers a low cost of ownership. Typically, it can run 30 days without replacing reagents. The InnovOx On-Line is also extremely versatile, and its multi-stream capability allows users to run up to five sample streams with just one instrument.

Supercritical Water Oxidation (SCWO) Technique

GE Analytical Instruments' patented Supercritical Water Oxidation (SCWO) technique enables the InnovOx to achieve its superior analytical performance and unsurpassed calibration stability. Using an oxidation process in a supercritical state has shown superior TOC recoveries across a broad range of organic compounds and particulate impurities. This new process removes sample and precipitated impurities between each analytical run, eliminating sample matrices contamination and providing reliable, long-term system performance.

The Sievers InnovOx On-Line Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analyzer offers the following key features and benefits:

Unprecedented Uptime and Reliability

The Sievers InnovOx was designed to address two primary requests from the wastewater marketplace - improved reliability and uptime. Today, the InnovOx delivers on this promise. The Sievers InnovOx features an innovative Supercritical Water Oxidation (SCWO) technique which allows it to provide unprecedented uptime and superior reliability. The InnovOx has been demonstrated to run thousands of diverse sample matrices without any need for time-comsuming reactor cleaning or expensive catalyst replacement.

Sample Handling Robustness

With the SCWO technique, the Sievers InnovOx has advanced standard wet chemical oxidation to achieve unprecedented TOC recoveries regardless of organic compounds and particulate impurities in the sample. The Sievers InnovOx is tough. It can handle a wide variety of sample matrices, notably those with brine, humic acid, cellulose and other challenging sample content.

Versatile Measurement Modes

The Sievers InnovOx TOC Analyzer offers various measurement modes, including:
  • Total Carbon (TC)
  • Total Inorganic Carbon (TC-IC)
  • Total Non-Purgeable Organic Carbon (NPOC)
  • Total Organic Carbon (TOC)

Extended Calibration Stability

The InnovOx offers up to six months' calibration stability. Calibration is easily performed using intuitive on-screen prompts. Multi-point calibrations can be performed with a single standard using the Auto Dilution capability.

Ease of Operation

Like other Sievers TOC Analyzers, the Sievers InnovOx is very easy to use and features an intuitive touch-screen display. Conveniently, the InnovOx starts up immediately, since it does not require any prior warm-up or stabilization.

Low Maintenance and Cost of Ownership

Generally requiring just a few hours of preventive maintenance a year, the InnovOx is very easy and inexpensive to maintain.

User-configurable Alarms and Outputs

Users set set desired alarms and outputs to notify them of water system events. They can also remotely monitor analysis results and performance.
