The TD-30 series consists of two models. The TD-30 is equipped with a 60-sample carousel. The TD-30R has the ability to hold 120 samples, the largest capacity in the industry, making it well-suited to large-volume automated analysis. Both are equipped with a retrapping function that allows split samples desorbed from the tube and loaded into the GCMS to be trapped again for potential re-measurement. An overlap function dramatically improves processing functionality by starting pretreatment of a sample while the previous sample is still being analyzed. The ability to add an internal standard in the TD-30R allows highly accurate, reliable quantitative analysis, even of trace components.
Additional features include:
• Ease of use and simplified maintenance – the sample tray position has been lowered to make it easier to use, and consumables can be replaced easily without using tools.
• A software function that maintains a record of consumables and maintenance parts usage, which helps to minimize downtime
• Built-in tube protection sensor, which significantly reduces tube damage during cap removal
The Shimadzu TD-30 series systems can be used for a variety of applications. These include the analysis of toxic atmospheric pollutants, flavor components in food products, the air in clean rooms, and foul odors from products. Other applications include the analysis of toxic substances in the atmosphere and substances responsible for sick house syndrome, and analysis of automotive interior materials and electrical equipment materials, where the detection of compounds with a wide range of boiling points is required.
