Petrochemical Analysis with Newly Developed, Specialized GC Column

sponsored by Agilent Technologies

Event Overview:

Two independent challenges face petrochemical analysis: PLOT column particle “shedding” and bleed from thick film polydimethylsiloxane columns in sulfur analysis. Discover how two recently developed, specialized columns from Agilent Technologies counter these issues to offer gains in reproducibility, efficiency, and sensitivity.

1)     PLOT column particle shedding can cause detector spikes, instrument or column flow restriction, and plugging of switching valves. Integrated particle trap technology at each end of one continuous length of fused silica capillary solves these common issues.

2)     Thick film polydimethylsiloxane phases are commonly used for analysis of sulfur compounds using Sulfur Chemiluminescence Detection (SCD). However, the inherent bleed of such columns can contribute to rapid fouling of SCD ceramic reaction tubes, resulting in a decline in sensitivity and the need for frequent detector maintenance. A new column, optimized specifically for use with SCD, enhances stability for improved results and increased instrument uptime.
