CS1232 Carbon Sulphur Analyzer for Organic Materials
Elegant in design, the new CS1232 brings the latest generation in Carbon Sulphur Analysis into view. With significant improvements to the Infrared Detection system, performance gains of 30% and precision/accuracy of 10% are easily achievable. Sample turn-around times are reduced, thus increasing sample throughput. Access to the Anhydrone and furnace temperature controls is concealed behind the push to open door.
Combustion Carbon Sulphur Analyzer
The new CS1232 Carbon Sulphur Analyzer utilises the latest technologies with all new Infrared Detection, 48 Position Autosampler, and improved safety features.

The Carbon Sulphur Analyser uses advanced infrared technology that improves sample speed without compromising on precision and accuracy.
Solutions & Options in Detail
The Infrared Detection system is a new optical design making this design far more field serviceable than before which is great for remote locations. The benefit of optics over reflection techniques is such that if the cell chamber becomes dirty, the loss in signal affects the performance of the cell. Not so with an optical infrared design. In fact, because of the new design, the Infrared Detection system is much more sensitive, leading to improved performance, precision & accuracy of results.
All power and control of the CS1232 is performed in the furnace power module. Being safety aware, the furnace power module fully encloses access to high voltage/current devices, thus making the system compliant with strict on site safety standards. All external wiring is low voltage (24VDC) and therefore poses no risk to personnel. The module also encloses the over temperature monitoring PID controller for extra added safety.
48 Position Sample Changer
The 48 position sample changer is included with all Carbon Sulphur Analyzers as standard. The sample changer and loading mechanism are tightly integrated into the CS1232 significantly improving reliability. The sample loading unit safely inserts the sample crucible into the furnace for combustion and once the analysis of the sample is complete, the loader places the spent sample crucible back into its original position on the sample changer before moving to the next sample.
The CS1232 does not simply drop the hot crucible into a bucket on completion of analysis.
What Our Customers Are Saying
Quality products are a key resource in meeting our clients’ needs and its imperative that we partner with suppliers that share our viewpoint. I was first introduced to Labfit over 10 years ago and from the outset was impressed by their level of service and attention to detail. They immediately made me feel comfortable and valued, and to this day I haven’t had reason to say otherwise. Their management team is very knowledgeable and always happy to assist with any enquiries I may have, and response turn-around is very timely.
On the product front, the quality is a reflection of their customer service. I have extensive personal experience with the Carbon and Sulphur Analyser and I have been thoroughly impressed with the reliability and accuracy in operation. What I like about the design is that it’s solid and rarely offline and allows for trouble-free access to components. Training my staff on the operation is effortless thanks to the user-friendliness of the software and physical functionality.
From a return on investment perspective, the CS Analyser is a cost effective method in our automation process, with ongoing costs lower than competitors previously used. Based on this, we have secured 2 units to date.
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Labfit on their abilities to deliver an exceptional customer experience and I welcome the continued business for the future.”
Labfit analysers have been used at the Barrick Nuigini “Porgera Gold Mine” for the past 9 years, four machines in service operating 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. A very high demand in analysis requires reliable equipment and continuous effective support service. Labfit Pty Ltd has a management and service team that is very knowledgeable and consistently provides prompt support to assist with any query, ensuring equipment availability.
The carbon and sulphur analysers are built and engineered to be simplistic in design though providing extremely good availability and accuracy. With a remote location such as Porgera, it is extremely important the analysers can be maintained by site personnel. The only requirement is for a once yearly site visit by Labfit support technicians to service the analysers and provide invaluable training for both site technicians and operations personnel. The supply of parts to maintain equipment serviceability has also always been very good, with clear parts listings provided by Labfit to ensure correct component identification.
Labfit consistently shows interest and curiosity about new approaches, tools, methods and/or technologies. Analyser design and associated software enhancements are implemented to ensure a quality product is provided to the end user. Labfit is prepared to listen to any concerns raised by its clients and to address the concerns immediately. Labfit is a professional business that takes pride in providing a professional approach to its product.
Reasons for deciding to continuously remain with Labfit analysers the past 9 years is simply due to a quality product, 24/7 support service, pricing compared to other vendors and proven success of an analyser that provides very good availability and accuracy. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Labfit for their many years of excellent product support associated to their analysers which has allowed our business to achieve the targets expected.
The CS 2000 carbon and sulphur analyzer that was purchased from Labfit – Australia, during December 2001, has exceeded our expectations to date. This instrument is very user friendly and handles the workload consistently without any operational problems since its installation.
Our own staff is maintaining the instrument and they found this instrument to be very easy maintained. The cleaning of the carrier gas tubes and transfer point is easily accessible. We have photographed these whenever it has been cleaned for future reference and comparison.
To date no maintenance costs were incurred at all. With the laboratory being situated in town, we have experienced many a power failure on our incoming supplies that have impacted on the running cost of our Sulphur analyzers. However, this does not influence the CS 2000. This was part of the reason why we decided to purchase one of these analyzers. The running cost is thus far also lower because of the savings achieved on consumables i.e. sample crucibles, as these can be reused for longer periods that that used in other makes. This I contribute to the difference in the design as the CS 2000 auto-sampler does not drop the crucibles, thus damaging them.
The standard auto-loader of this instrument has also worked without any defects since installation. It is very easy to handle and the design prevents crucibles from sliding out of the sample tray. This is very helpful especially if the analyst is under pressure to perform work in different work environments.
All in all, I can gladly recommend this instrument to any one who wants to analyze solid samples for sulphur content. The ranges of sulphur that we analyze ranges from 0.001% to 38- 39% which places an extreme demand on most makes of sulphur analyzers. The CS 2000 has passed the test thus far with flying colors.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are some typical applications?
The CS1232 Carbon Sulfur analyzer is suitable for all organic sample types such as; Mineral Ores, Bauxite, Sulfide Ores, Copper Concentrates, Coal, Coking Coal, Soils, Plants, Rubbers, and many more.
Can the CS1232 be used for Oils?
Yes, it can! The CS1232 determines Carbon and Sulfur in oils, diesel, and other combustion liquids by simply using a combustion aid and reducing the furnace temperature to suit.
How expensive are spare parts and consumables?
We pride ourselves in making all our instrumentation very affordable to run. That is why the CS1232 Carbon Sulfur analyzer costs less to run, and in the long term, makes it more affordable than ever.
Is maintenance complicated?
No. Maintenance is much easier on our Carbon Sulfur analyzer because the system is modular allowing for easier access to all components.
