Over the last thirty years, the Dumas combustion method for analyzing protein content in food has been gaining popularity against the classic Kjeldahl wet chemical digestion and titration method. The Dumas method has several advantages over the Kjeldahl method: it is much faster, with much lower operating costs, no real safety issues, and no toxic waste produced. However, there is a debate over which of the two main approaches to the Dumas method is better: a vertical or a horizontal combustion furnace.

When the TruMac® Macro Determinator at the Southern African Grain Laboratory (SAGL) needed to be replaced, laboratory manager Jolanda Nortjé returned to LECO for an updated solution. For the past twenty years, LECO had been providing the SAGL with excellent service support, and their TruMac and previous nitrogen analyzers had been LECO products they were very satisfied with. At the end of 2019, trusting LECO again, the SAGL purchased a LECO FP928 to replace their TruMac.
Our popular 928 Series enables you to analyze macro samples with features that streamline your analysis. The latest model to enter our lineup, the CNS928, allows for the simultaneous analysis of carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur from one sample in agronomy and agricultural materials. The CNS928 maintains the core capabilities and performance of previous generations of LECO macro combustion instruments while introducing key improvements in throughput, uptime, and reliability.
Our 928 Series was designed for dependability and provides peace of mind while delivering results in 5.3 minutes (nitrogen/protein model) for macro samples up to 3 grams. By incorporating state-of-the-art hardware and an on-board touch-screen software platform, the 928 Series will allow you to easily handle the most demanding sample applications.
LECO’s new 928 Series will allow you to:
