Successfully perform high temperature GC applications

by | Gas Chromatography

Would you like to fully understand what high temperature gas chromatography means and discover strategies for more efficient and successful high temperature applications? If so, this on-demand webinar will provide the answers.

In this webinar the presenter discusses what effect temperatures above 360 °C have on the integrity of the column phase and brittleness of the column over extended periods of time. You will discover strategies for more efficient and successful high temperature applications, such as utilizing metal columns, and how long they are able to operate at temperatures up to 450 °C and still maintain their integrity. Also discussed is how selection of the right consumables and maintaining a leak free system is especially important in high temperature GC applications, and how to pick the right ones to have a successful and robust GC analysis.

This presentation covers:

  • high temperature GC columns
  • maximum temperature limits
  • how to protect your column from oxygen
  • how to reach higher temperatures without sacrificing selectivity
  • when to switch to metal columns
  • which consumables are needed for high temperature applications.

By viewing this presentation you will learn:

  • what the maximum operating temperature means
  • what can happen to the phase and fused silica when it is exceeded
  • how to successfully perform high temperature applications
  • how to elute up to C114

Why should you view it?

To gain better understanding of what high temperature gas chromatography means, when to use high temperature fused silica and when to switch to deactivated stainless steel GC columns, and
how gas quality and thermal stability can affect your chromatography at high temperatures.
