GC Range | Generators for analytical grade air with ultralow hydrocarbon levels (GC Series)

Key Features

  • Specifically designed to supply analytical grade air with ultralow hydrocarbon levels for gas chromatography applications such as GC-FID, GC-NPD and GC-FPD and for generating fuel gas for total hydrocarbon analysers
  • Utilises platinum catalytic oxidation technology to reduce hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide levels in output gas to <0.1 ppm 
  • Maximum flow rate from 1.5 L/min. up to 30 L/min
  • Inlet gas pressure up to 10 bar

Product Description

The GC series of generators have been specifically developed to provide analytical grade air with ultralow hydrocarbon levels for applications such as:

  • Gas chromatography using flame ionisation detection (GC-FID)
  • Gas chromatography using nitrogen phosphorous detection (GC-NPD)
  • Gas chromatography using flame photometric detection (GC-FPD)
  • Total hydrocarbon analysers

Platinum catalytic oxidation technology reduces hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide levels to <0.1 ppm so that the use of the outlet gas in GC systems results in a flat, stable baseline, increased sensitivity and repeatable analysis.
