Pyrolysis Automated Pyrolysis System

Editor: Doris Popp

Gerstel Pyro performs automated pyrolysis of 40, 80, or 120 samples in combination with the Gerstel Multi Purpose Sampler (MPS) robotic. Pyro performs pyrolysis up to 1000 °C.

The unique Smart Ramped Pyrolysis (SRP) technique provides additional information on polymer mixtures with minimal method development time and sample consumption.

Other techniques supported by Pyro include fractionated pyrolysis; solvent venting combined with pyrolysis; Evolved Gas Analysis (EGA); and derivatization combined with pyrolysis. Thermal desorption prior to pyrolysis enables the determination of volatile compounds; purging these from the sample results in a clean pyrogram that is easy to interpret. Solvent venting can remove water prior to pyrolysis. Pyro is controlled using the Maestro software or integrated with the GC/MS software.
