Accurate results can only be achieved by using the highest grade reagents in your elemental analyser. The unique processing and purification methods that we employ in the preparation of these reagents eliminate the devitrification of our silica reaction tubes allowing the tube to be cooled and removed without hazardous breakage.
Our highly efficient combustion reagents ensure complete oxidation and remove halogens, sulphur oxides, and similar interferences where applicable.
High capacity reduction reagents have been developed for complete reduction of the products of reaction and to remove surplus oxygen left from combustion. OEA Labs have enhanced the capacity of these products to the highest performance standards for maximum tube life and economy. They can be confidently used in single or dual tube applications.
Our catalysed oxygen pyrolysis reagents have been developed for complete reaction stoichiometry. The catalytic reaction to carbon monoxide occurs at lower temperatures than would normally be required. We can make these reagents in other metal concentrations, catalytic materials, carriers and/or granule sizes. Please enquire if you have a requirement.
In order to pack reaction and scrubbing tubes good quality packing materials are required to separate and hold the reagents in place. Because this is often a question of personal choice we offer a wide range of materials and grades. Whatever your choice you will find these materials to be of the highest quality and purity.
OEA Labs offer a number of effective reagents for scrubbing out water, carbon dioxide and acid gases from helium carrier gas. These are based on magnesium perchlorate flakes and sodium hydroxide absorbed on an inert carrier material. Unfortunately these reagents above 25gm pack sizes are classified as Dangerous Goods in Limited Quantities for shipping by air, sea or road and can be subject to shipping surcharges and additional documentation. By packaging down to 25gm packs and with some additional measures we are able to ship these as Dangerous Goods in Excepted Quantities without shipping surcharges or documentation. Regrettably we are not able to ship Dangerous Goods even in Excepted Quantities to some locations due to local regulations. For elemental analysis we offer materials (Ecodrone and Soda Lime) which are not subject to shipping restrictions.
