Dumatec 8000 : New innovative approach to Dumas nitrogen analysis

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

The Dumas method is increasingly popular for measuring nitrogen in a broad range of food and feed products. The Dumatec™ 8000 is among several analytical solutions recently added to the FOSS product portfolio. It offers a number of innovative features that makes the method simpler and faster for busy laboratories. Instantaneous analysis of all nitrogen resulting from the test procedure gives reliable Dumas measurements within three minutes.

The operating principle of Dumatec 8000™ is based on the Dumas method – quick combustion of a sample in a pure oxygen atmosphere, followed by an analysis of all the resulting nitrogen in the combustion gases. The nitrogen is registered by a thermal conductivity detector (TCD), resulting in a signal that corresponds to the amount of nitrogen (N2) in the combusted sample.
