Water Quality AnalyzersAutomatic Total Organic Carbon/Total Nitrogen (TOC/TN) Analyzers

TNC-200 series

TNC-200 series of water quality analyzers


Combustion TNC analyzer capable of simultaneous TN and TOC measurement

Toray’s total organic carbon and total nitrogen automatic analyzers rapidly and accurately perform automatic analysis of total organic carbon content and total nitrogen content such as in rivers, lakes and marshes, sea areas and plant wastewater, in either online or offline.
This TOC/TN analyzer, are based on our track record of online total organic carbon automatic analyzers and total nitrogen content automatic analyzers, unites our TOC and TN analyzers into a single compact body.


This series of devices supports a wide range of samples and measurement points, from high concentrations such as source points to low concentrations such as discharge water and rainwater, providing long-term, stable measurement.


  • Easy to maintain and manage, without the need for expensive test reagents (for TN measurement)
  • Unique catalyst design and pre-processing filter ensure stable measurement of samples containing high concentrations, such as suspended matter and seawater samples
  • Built-in 2 to 20x dilution function (optional), can measure up to 4,000 mg/L
  • Measurement for up to 4 streams (optional). Offline measurement is also possible.
  • Lineup of four models to suit individual uses

Automatic cleaning filter

Our automatic cleaning filters, developed in-house, are sample filtration preprocessing devices which consist of net-less elements made up of stacked circular disks and cleaning blades. The ACF element component uses a roughly 100 gauge net (equivalent to 147 μm) to catch matter suspended in samples.

The suspended matter is scraped off by the cleaning blades, washed off by the flow of excess sample, and evacuated via the drain.

Options such as a reverse cleaning function using cleaning water and functions for controlling element pass-through time are also available to reduce the amount of element clogging.
