    ...on the ultra compact 310 chassis

The Educational FID GC system is ideal for undergraduate chemistry classes or graduate level research. This same GC is also used in thrifty labs for general VOC analysis because of its low cost and complete upgrade-ability* with our wide selection of detectors and injectors, in case analytical needs change in the future.

Both the carrier gas and the FID combustion gas are controlled by programmable Electronic Pressure Controllers, or EPCs. EPCs not only provide rock-solid retention time reproducibility, but allow the carrier gas to be pressure ramped (just as the column oven is temperature ramped) from the built-in PeakSimple data system.

The On-column injector is ideal for 1/8" packed and 0.53mm wide-bore capillary columns, and is suitable for analyses ranging from methane to heavy, high-boiling hydrocarbons (C44+). The column oven accepts column cage diameters up to four inches, is programmable to 400oC, and recycles quickly with its high speed cool-down fans.

(VOLTAGE: for 110VAC, use 0310-0004-1; for 220VAC, use 0310-0004-2)
*NOTE: Because of batch manufacturing efficiencies, educational models are less expensive than equivalent GC's manufactured to order. No customization of educational models is available prior to initial sale, although normal factory retrofit services are available after delivery.
