Capillary FID GC System

Basic Model

Capillary FID GC System is a state-of-the-art, general-purpose temperature programmable GC in a compact, low-cost package. It includes everything you need to separate and detect fuels and other hydrocarbon compounds. In addition to a wide range of general gas chromatography applications, the Capillary FID GC System is excellent for both environmental testing and quality control applications.

The 30-meter capillary column can efficiently separate hydrocarbons up to C20+. The on-column injector (for 0.53mm capillary columns) is good for liquid and gas samples with high and low boiling analytes—no boiling point discrimination. The built-in, “whisper quiet” air compressor provides a nearly silent supply of combustion air for the FID detector, so an air cylinder is not required for most applications. The optional split/splitless injector upgrade allows for the use of 0.32mm, 0.25mm, and smaller capillary columns.

The six chromatograms shown on right resulted from analyzing various fuels with one of our Capillary FID GC systems. The characteristic hydrocarbon range and fingerprint of each fuel are revealed. All six runs were performed under identical conditions.
