CHS - Carbonate Handling System

CHS is a head-space sampling system for carbonates and liquid combustion samples. It is designed to efficiently flush, hydrolyze/oxidize and sample from septum-sealed vials. CHS combines a PID-controlled heater block for up to 42 samples, an adapted auto sampler, a water trap and an adjustable flow meter. The system is fully implemented in both the AGE 3 and GIS software.
