TOC Analysis Webinar Series

Are you monitoring Organic Contaminants in Water and Wastewater Streams? Learn from our TOC guru! 

Our TOC Product Manager and presenter, John Welsh, earned his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from Texas A&M University and has 25+ years of experience in analytical instrumentation. Six years have been dedicated to total organic carbon analysis research, so you can trust he is an expert on all things TOC. Have a question? We would be happy to lend our expert's ear and brain!

What is TOC? How is it Measured?

Total organic carbon (TOC) measurement is a well-established technique that provides valuable information about water quality for process control and regulatory compliance. Though high-temperature combustion TOC has been shown to be very effective for analyzing samples of high molecular weight or containing substantial amounts of salt or difficult-to-oxidize organics (e.g., humic acid), these types of samples are problematic for combustion TOC analyzers.

Need to monitor organic contaminants in water and wastewater streams? Our 9210p Online TOC Analyzer was developed from 45 years of experience, so it addresses critical issues like performance, reliability, simplicity, and cost-effectiveness. 

Reliable Data for Regulatory Compliance and Process Control

The 9210p is fully compliant with USEPA Method 415.3 and SM 5310C. It combines the robust heated persulfate oxidation method with a patented, solid-state infrared detection technology for unparalleled accuracy and precision across a range of 50 ppb to 250 ppm.

Engineered for operation in process environments, the 9210p requires no external gases, minimal preventative maintenance, and uses standard reagents. Calibration is typically stable for 12 months.

9210p TOC Features:

  • Flexible - Ideal for drinking water, municipal wastewater, surface water, groundwater, and other industrial water streams
  • Reliable - Compliant with USEPA Method 415.3 and SM 5310C
  • Economical - Uses standard reagents, does not require external gases or expensive service contracts
  • Simple – A large, touchscreen display, paired with an easy-to-use interface, simplifies set-up and access to data, trending, and diagnostic screens
  • Overcoming Challenges in TOC Determination of Effluent
  • A Comparison of TOC Techniques for the Laboratory
  • A New Approach to High Salt Samples & TOC Analysis

Thank you for being interested in our informational TOC Webinar Series; we hope you find this webinar series to be a valuable asset to your growing total organic carbon analysis knowledge! Whether you are brand new to the concept of total organic carbon analysis or have been using TOC instruments for years, we're confident this series will serve as a valuable resource for your TOC toolkit.  

Overcoming Challenges in TOC Determination of Effluent

Listen as John Welsh, Ph.D. discusses the difficulties often encountered in industrial and municipal effluent testing and how new technology for TOC analysis can help. 

A Comparison of TOC Techniques for the Laboratory

Follow Dr. Welsh on a journey of exploring the advantages and challenges of different TOC analysis methods, and discover how you can achieve better results.

A New Approach to High Salt Samples & TOC Analysis

In this webinar recording, Dr. Welsh explores current challenges of running high-salt TOC samples, problems associated with believed "fixes" for high-salt analysis, and a new TOC approach providing catalyst longevity and decreased maintenance.
