The TCA08 is our revolutionary new instrument that provides a real-time analysis of the Total Carbon content of a sampled aerosol stream. It is explicitly designed for “on-line” ambient-air monitoring and laboratory use.

The TCA08 is rugged, field-worthy instrument that uses NO GAS, contains NO GLASS, and requires NO CATALYST.

 
 

Complete Characterization of Carbonaceous Aerosols:
Combination of TCA08 with AE33 Aethalometer

The combination of the Aethalometer AE33 with the Total Carbon Analyzer TCA08 provides a complete identification of the carbonaceous component of ambient aerosols in near-Real-Time:

BC (‘EC’) ; BrC ; OC : TC

Note: The AE 33 Aethalometer must be running software version 1.4.4.0 or greater. If needed, please download this from the Magee Scientific User’s group website.
