Description
The ONH-2000 is designed for the rapid and accurate determination
of oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen in copper, steel, cast iron, alloys,
zirconium, titanium, molybdenum, nickel, ceramics and other
inorganic materials. The ONH-2000 can be supplied with two
independent infrared cells to provide optimum precision for the
analysis of high and low levels of oxygen. Nitrogen and hydrogen are
detected with a dual range thermal conductivity cell. The change over
from the low to the high ranges is done automatically during the
analysis and does not require any pre-setting by the operator. The
ONH-2000 features a microcontroller and solid state infrared
detectors with auto zero and auto range control. The water-cooled
high power electrode impulse furnace uses a graphite crucible to heat
the sample up to a temperature of 3000° C.
On request the ONH-2000 measuring ranges can be optimized in the
factory to suit your requirements, without additional charges. The
sensitivity of the detectors can be designed to provide maximum
accuracy in ranges from low ppm up to high percentage
concentrations.
AnaIysis procedure
The sample is weighed on an electronic balance which is interfaced to
the PC. By pressing a key the sample weight is transferred into the
PC. Ìf required the sample weight can also be entered manually. The
sample is placed into the loading head and the graphite crucible is put
on the lower electrode tip. The start key is pressed and the analysis
cycle runs automatically. The furnace closes, the crucible is outgased,
the sample is dropped into the crucible and the analysis proceeds. At
the end of the cycle, the analysis results appear on the screen of the
PC. A manual loading of the sample is also possible. The manual
loading is necessary for the analysis of powders.
The ONH-2000 can alternatively operate as a simultaneous oxygen / nitrogen or as a simultaneous oxygen / hydrogen determinator. The
changing from ONto OHmode and reverse, is easily done with a switch having an ONand an OHposition. The carrier gas cylinders are also
selected by solenoid valves controlled by the ON/ OHswitch. For OHoperation, Schutzes reagent is used as CO CO converter, while for
2
ONoperation the more economic CuO is used in a catalyst furnace.
PCcontroI with Windows software
Comprehensive analyser control and easy operation are provided by
the PCand software connected to the computer.
The multilingual software provides the user with the following
features:
Optional display layout - adjustable screen appearance of the
program windows.
User profiles with multi-level access - parameter changes
protected by unauthorized acces.
Sample ÌD memory - supplemented with running analysis
number.
Data base (analysis results storage) - all data for each analysis is
stored and can be recalled later for review, report creation,
statistical calculations or results recalculation with modified
parameters.
Optional data base configuration - displays only results meeting
specified conditions, for example, certain date/time period, specific
sample Ì.D. etc.
Visualisation of the results consistency.

AppIications memory
The settings for different applications can be stored in memory and
they can be recalled for later analysis of the corresponding material.
Due to this feature, the operator does not need to enter new settings
every time he has to analyse a sample of a material different to that of
the sample before. Also every time new settings are found for a new
kind of samples, the operator can memorize them in the PCsoftware.
This facility is practically a must, especially for fractional analysis.
FractionaI anaIysis
Every oxide and nitride has a characteristic decomposition
temperature. The furnace power can be raised slowly until a particular
oxide or nitride breaks its bond. Continually increasing the
temperature will separate the various oxides and nitrides.
Upper eIectrode insert
The furnace of the ONH-2000
features an upper electrode insert. Ìt
can be easily and quickly replaced
by the operator. Ìt is therefore a very
economic solution when the upper
contact surface to the crucible is
worn out.
Graphite tip
The crucible is placed on a graphite
tip. Due to the electrical resistance of
the graphite, there is a power
dissipation in it, so that the graphite tip
heats up the bottom of the crucible.
This effect moves the hot zone from
the middle of the crucible down to the
bottom where the sample is.
Grain and driIIings
anaIysis without
tin capsuIe
The design of the
sample drop mechanism
enables the analysis of
grains and drillings
without the risk of
blockages. Therefore the
grains can be put into
the furnace without the
need of a tin or nickel
capsule. The elimination
of the need for a capsule
has the following
advantages:
No blank values of the
capsule material.
No blank values due to
the air enclosed in the
capsule.

No contamination of the furnace and of the gas flow system due
to evaporation of the capsule material when analyzing with high
power, especially for nitrogen compounds requiring high
temperature.
No costs and delays for maintenance due to the capsule
evaporation.
No costs and delays due to the time required to tare, to handle
the capsule and to fill it with grains.
No expenses for capsules.
For this purpose the software can control the furnace power, either
by ramping or in steps up to a maximum of 3000° C. The peaks are
individually integrated by the software and the individual values of
the different oxides or nitrides are displayed.
Hot extraction anaIysis
The ONH-2000 can determine the residual hydrogen in the sample,
by heating up the sample at a temperature below the melting point.
This can be obtained by setting the power at a relatively low level
(about 1.2 kW). Ìn order to be able to analyse big samples, a bigger
crucible is used in this case. The big sample is put directly into the
crucible by the operator, using the manual loading mode of the
analyser.
Peak separation calculation procedure for fractional analysis.
LÌMS communication and data export (Notepad, Excel etc.).
Basic one-point and advanced multi-point calibration.
Barometric pressure compensation.
Simultaneous calibration of more than one measuring range.
Procedure for automatic linearity correction calculation.
Applications memory and deficiency checks - adjustable analysis
counters to prompt the changing of reagents, cleaning of filters and
other maintenance procedures.
Hardware diagnostics display and technical report printouts.

The lengths of both cells can be individually optimized, to obtain
maximum precision for the target analysis levels of each customer.
Each of the cells can be installed with infrared absorption lengths
ranging between 1 mm and 320 mm.

concentrations are

detector. This detector
was especially
developed by ELTRA
in order to guarantee
low drift, high
resolution and wide
measuring ranges.
Saving carrier gas
When the ONH-2000 is in analysis mode, but it has not been used for
a while, the gas consumption will automatically be reduced to a very
lowlevel. This lowflowkeeps the gas flowsystem flooded with carrier
gas, preventing the air from penetrating the system.
As soon as the operator starts using the analyser again, the normal
flow will be automatically restored. The analyser will be again ready
for operation in a very short time, due to the purging with the low flow
during the break.
CooIing system
The ONH-2000 has a primary and a secondary cooling
system. This is to prevent the tap water from passing
through the furnace. Tap water can contain carbonates
and, depending on the tap water quality of each location, it

The primary cooling system of the ONH-2000 consists of a closed
loop of clear water circulating from a tank through the furnace, utilizing
a water pump within the ONH-2000.
The secondary cooling system is connected to tap water which flows
through a coil of metal tube, cooling the water in the tank as a thermal
exchanger. There is no mixing of the tap water with the clear water of
the primary system. Athermostatic control opens the tap water valve
at a certain temperature level of the water in the tank. The valve closes
again when the water is cooled down. The water tank is not inside, but
outside the analyser. This configuration reduces considerably the risk
of water problems with the analyser in case of leakages. The tank is
made of very solid stainless steel. Ìt can be placed under the desk
underneath the analyser saving space on the desk. The analyser's
size is small due to the tank being outside the analyser. The tank itself
is big, accommodating a big quantity of water to ensure lowvariations
of the water temperature during analysis.
The ONH-2000 can

Infrared ceIIs
The infrared cells of the ONH-2000 do not require any manual zero
adjustments. The zero and sensitivity adjustments of the infrared cells
are permanently and automatically controlled by the electronics. The
detectors utilize solid state sensors combined with infrared filters. The
sensors are not gas filled, thus eliminating long term problems due to
gas leakage. The ONH-2000 can be equipped with up to two
independent infrared cells for oxygen determination.
