New TOC catalysts for Shimadzu®

Elemental Microanalysis launches new platinum TOC catalysts for Shimadzu® TOC-L/V series

Elemental Microanalysis is pleased to announce that our in-house R&D team has developed platinum catalysts which are suitable for use in Shimadzu TOC–L and TOC–V analysers. These catalysts are intended as a direct replacement for the standard platinum catalysts that Shimadzu offers. 

The catalysts from Elemental use a zirconia support, rather than alumina, hence there is a colour and weight difference when compared to the OEM catalysts. Our zirconia versions offer the following advantages over the OEM catalyst:

  • lower blank values, leading to lower practical limit of quantification
  • stabilises more quickly - allows faster conditioning of catalyst when installing a new reaction tube
  • longer lifetime - allows greater number of sample runs before replacement
  • more robust, - less prone to physical degradation


Available Elemental TOC catalysts include:

Part  Description Shimadzu part
B1609 Platinum Catalyst-ST for Shimadzu TOC 117 g (Equivalent to 33 g of 638-60246) 638-60246
B1610 Platinum Catalyst for Shimadzu TOC 71 g (Equivalent to 20 g of 638-60202-01) 638-60202-01
B1611 Platinum Catalyst for Shimadzu TOC 54 g (Equivalent to 15 g of 638-60202-00) 638-60202-00


Elemental Microanalysis offers a large range of consumables for the Shimadzu TOC–L/V series analysers, including combustion tubes, reagents, halogen scrubbers, platinum gauze, O-rings, and various other operational accessories.
