AGE 3

Automated Graphitization Equipment

The third generation of the Automated Graphitization Equipment AGE 3 is the most compact graphitization system on the market. Used in over 30 laboratories around the world, AGE 3 combines sample combustion and graphite production for AMS in a fast and efficient way. Organics are combusted with an Elemental Analyzer EA, carbonates are hydrolyzed and sampled with the fully automated Carbonate Handling System CHS 2. AGE 3 systems run completely unattended and deliver excellent repeatability due to a high degree of automation. This also shows in the AMS data, where good repeatability translates into higher precision.
