The e-Chronicle is a monthly publication from Chromatographic Specialties Inc. It showcases new products, suppliers, literature and news from across the chromatography industry.




SIM - Hydrogen Sensor

Within the scientific community, there is broad agreement that hydrogen is the best carrier gas for capillary GC applications.  But in spite of many advantages, the gas has one disadvantage: In case of a leakage, there is the possibility of an explosion in the GC oven!

To eliminate this possibility, SIM has developed a hydrogen sensor that is fully integrated into the Agilent gas chromatograph. By constantly detecting the gas concentration in the GC oven and switching over to inert gas in case of alarm, any risk can be eliminated. For use with most other GCs, an external device with sensor control board and carrier gas switching is available. The related gas sensor head is installed in the GC oven.
