500 Series Gas Chromatograph
The 500 Series Gas Chromatograph is manufactured with a unique new concept in gas chromatography based on Conventional & Fast Chromatography Mode.
Simple to Use – User interface offers a walk-through guide to the common tasks.
Simple to Maintain – The built of machine is more modular to reduce the servicing times.
More Flexible – Smaller Footprint, multiple 500 Series GCs can be installed on the same bench space as a single traditional GC
500 Series GC
Developed and manufactured at our UK HQ, the 500 Series Gas Chromatograph is a unique new concept in gas chromatography. The instrument can perform conventional, fast and ultra-fast GC, removing the requirement for multiple systems. This is the only GC machine that can offer this flexibility for the customer.
Ultra-Fast GC can decrease your analysis cycle times by up to 10 times.
The 500 Series GC has one of the smallest footprints in the market saving valuable laboratory bench space.
Energy consumption per sample dramatically reduced compared to other conventional GC’s.
The 500 Series GC comes equipped with a temperature programmable detector as standard. The injector can be used as a conventional split / split-less injector isothermally. The injector also has the capability to be rapidly heated to temperatures of up to 600C at rates of up to 900C/min.
– Temperature Programmable with split / split-less capabilities
– 10 programmable ramps
– Temperature Range ambient + 20C to 600C
– Maximum Isothermal temperature 450C
– Maximum Ramp Rate 900C / min
When using the 500 Series GC in conventional mode, the GC can accept standard capillary and packed columns. These are then heated in a hot air oven. The 500 Series GC uses the unique patented heat exchanger flow through oven system. Originally developed for the 200 Series GC the innovative technology delivers industry standard heating performance whilst dramatically reducing energy consumption.
Ultra-Fast GC: Rapid temperature ramping for Ultra-fast analysis
Ultra-Fast GC: The 500 Series GC can also perform Ultra-Fast Chromatography when used with metal ultra-fast GC Columns. When in Ultra-Fast mode rather than using the hot air oven to heat the column, an electrical current is passed directly though the column resistively heating it. This allows for significantly faster temperature ramping, and then because only the column has been heated rather than an entire oven, the cool down time is greatly decreased.
Temperature Heating Rates: 1000ºC/min
Temperature Cool Down Rates: 300ºC to 50ºC in under 2 min
