Product Briefing Outline:
GE Analytical Instruments
has introduced the Sievers 500 RL On-Line Total Organic Carbon (TOC)
Analyzer. The reagentless analyzer is designed for continuous
monitoring of organics in ultrapure water (UPW) for pharmaceutical,
microelectronics, and power applications with a 0.03 ppb limit of
detection and autozero capabilities, according to the company.
The Sievers 500 RL On-Line TOC
Analyzer is designed to deliver science-based risk management
capability to the production floor. This is largely achieved by
integrating Sievers laboratory TOC analysis methodology into a
reagentless on-line analyzer that delivers the same high level of
analytical process capability associated with laboratory analyzers, but
without the delay.
The 500 RL On-Line
TOC Analyzer utilizes the patented Sievers membrane conductometric
technology, which eliminates false positive and false negative readings
to which other technologies are susceptible. Additionally, the Sievers'
technology ensures accurate recovery of all classes of organic
compounds commonly found in UPW waters.
The new Super iOS
(Integrated On-Line Sampling System) is a four-port system that fully
automates system protocols, including system suitability, significantly
reducing operator time, risks, and costs. The Super iOS can also run
single standards and grab samples, like the standard iOS.
The Analyzer complies with USEPA-approved Standards Methods 5310C and
the proposed USEPA 415.3 for regulatory monitoring. It also complies
with ASTM-approved methodologies, and provides security consistent with
21 CFR Part 11. The Analyzer includes: large color touch-screen
display, intuitive menu interface, on-screen consumables status
indicators, and automated system protocols, such as system suitability
