Characterising Renewable Building Materials

440 CHN Analyser from Exeter Analytical A Model 440 CHN Analyser from Exeter Analytical is being used by the Environmental Research Group (ERG) at the University of East London to help characterise renewable building materials.

With over 23,000 students from 120 countries worldwide, the University of East London (UEL) is located at the heart of Europe's largest regeneration area.  Within the University's Sustainability Research Institute, the Environmental Research Group (ERG) embraces research across a wide range of environmental issues, including peatland, insect and freshwater ecology, botany and ethnobotany, carbon budgeting, nature conservation, environmental quality, sustainability and quality of life.

Renewable aggregates test centre for green roof growth aggregatesStuart Connop, a researcher at the ERG commented "The impetus to investing in a CHN microanalysis system was brought about by the University receiving funding to develop a renewable aggregates test centre for green roof growth aggregates". He added "After reviewing commercially available CHN analysers we selected the Model 440 from Exeter Analytical due to its unique horizontal furnace design which made it ideal for high throughput analysis of our soil, peat, air and water filter sample types".

green roof growth aggregatesPaul Hemming, European Sales Manager for Exeter Analytical said "We are very pleased that one of our CHN analysers forms part of the vital ongoing programme of sustainable building research being undertaken by staff at UEL".  He added "With its wide linear range, proprietary combustion technology and horizontal furnace design allowing for removal of residues between runs, the Exeter Analytical Model 440 CHN Analyser is uniquely suited to accurately analysing complex materials such as soils and filtered air and water samples".

As a company dedicated to elemental microanalysis, Exeter Analytical's nearly 30 years of involvement with instruments, consumables and supplies has allowed them to better understand the whole problem facing microanalysts.  As a consequence whether you are a regular or an occasional purchaser - experienced and knowledgeable staff are always available to provide free informed advice.
