BILLERICA, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 7, 2011-- Bruker today announces the launch of the advanced, G4 ICARUS version C-HF, a new competitively-priced metals combustion gas analyzer designed for rapid and precise carbon measurements in metal casting and heat treatment applications.

The G4 ICARUS C-HF has been designed with customer feedback in mind. Many of time-consuming maintenance requirements found in other combustion gas analyzers have been replaced with innovative, time-saving designs. A proprietary furnace reduces unwanted combustion by-products, such as splatter against interior furnace components. The filter system, accessible without tools, is positioned behind a transparent enclosure for convenient monitoring. In addition, the combustion process and quartz tube integrity can be observed via a furnace viewing port. These benefits combine to reduce instrument downtime and improve sample throughput significantly.

Georg Schick, Vice President Industrial Sales & Marketing of the Bruker Elemental division, commented: “Low operating expenses as well as proven reliability and an extended ’bumper-to-bumper‘ warranty provide the peace of mind that makes the ICARUS a ’no-brainer‘ for this market segment.”

New G4 ICARUS C-HF features:

  • Optimized carbon detector
  • Affordable pricing
  • Reduced downtime
  • Minimal furnace maintenance
  • Superior sample throughput
  • Fewer furnace consumable replacements
  • Unsurpassed component warranties
  • Minimal gas consumption
  • Intuitive One-4-All software interface

The new G4 ICARUS C-HF complements Bruker’s complete line of elemental analysis systems. Please visit our website or contact us for additional information on the new G4 ICARUS C-HF at:
