Lotix/ LSS Boat

TOC users from around the globe requested simplicity, performance, and durability. The Teledyne Tekmar LSS Boat Module is an ideal add-on to the Lotix Total Organic Carbon (TOC) analyzer. It uses high-temperature combustion to accurately measure carbon content in a variety of matrices: soils, sludges, sediments, particulate-laden liquids and hard-to-oxidize samples.

Compact and simple, the LSS Boat is designed to work with the Lotix making it the ultimate solution for all of your TOC needs both liquid and solid for years of operation with an economical price to fit any budget.

Key Features:
  • Automated sample delivery into furnace via software
  • Low cost of ownership
  • Up to 1 gram sample size giving you a wide analytical range
  • Ability to switch back and forth between liquids and solids within minutes
  • Analysis of 1 gram samples with up to 20mg carbon content can reduce errors associated with using small sample sizes​
