SAMPLE INTRODUCTION - Septa
The role of septa for GC analysis is key with many chromatographic problems caused as a result
of inappropriate septa material or inappropriate handling of the septa.
Desired septa attributes:
• Must reliably seal against the carrier gas pressure in the inlet.
• Must be capable of being pierced by the syringe needle without pieces of the septa being
deposited in the GC inlet system, which would be catastrophic to the chromatography.
• Must be capable of being pierced and resealed time after time.
• Must not be allowed to be contaminated or bleed material into the chromatographic system.
See pages 150-151 for SGE’s septa range.

Due to the location of septa in the sample
path, much attention has been focused on
which material is the most appropriate to
eliminate contamination, minimize bleed
and ensure repeated sealing against the
inlet. Comparisons between different septa
materials in manufacturer’s promotional
material regularly show the bleed difference
between Brands A, B and C. Whilst the
formulation of the material is very important,
without correct conditioning, handling
and storage; even the best materials can
interfere with analysis results.
After preparation and conditioning, SGE’s
septa are immediately hermetically sealed
into blister packs which prevent absorption
from the environment. This delivers our
customers a consistent product time after
time. SGE recommends the septa only be
released from the pack when they are ready
to be used.
Type B: No septa bleed.
Keep septa in a

Split/Splitless Injector
The GC inlet functions as the interface of the
sample syringe to the GC capillary column,
where the sample is introduced, vaporized,
mixed with carrier gas and transferred to
the column. There are several types of inlets
now available - split, splitless, programmable
temperature vaporization (PTV) and oncolumn are the main examples. The most
commonly used inlet is still the split/splitless
injector. Each inlet has its own unique
advantages and disadvantages and further
details on injection techniques can be found
on page 154.

When gas chromatography with packed
columns was first introduced in the 1950s,
the process of sample introduction was
relatively simple as the syringe needle easily
fit within the bore of packed column tubing,
therefore the sample being introduced into
the column could be injected directly onto
the packed phase. The advent of capillary
columns for GC in the 1970s brought
about significant improvements in column
efficiency and separating power, but the
drawback was the column ID no longer
supported sample introduction directly
onto the column. Thus, a new interface
had to be created to allow the injection of
the sample and its eventual transfer to the
capillary column. This is what we refer to
today as the injection port or GC inlet.

The inlet liner prevents the sample contacting
the metal walls of the injector block. Inlet liner
geometry and packing materials enable the
inlet liner to achieve greater heated surface
area; this additional surface area can often
improve sample vaporization. Conversely,
choosing the wrong liner geometry can
significantly decrease the reproducibility and
quality of analysis.
The importance of correct
liner selection
In a study by Kende et al (Chromatographia
2006) the performance of trace pesticide
analysis with a number of inlet liner types
were investigated: Single taper, Single taper
with quartz wool and Double taper.
In combination with optimal injector
temperature, injection volume, split vent time,
head pressure and initial oven temperature,
the liner design was found to significantly
impact performance.
Optimization of injector parameters within
a liner increased peak areas by 30-40%.
However, even within a series of controlled
GC Supplies | GC Inlet Liners
151

injector parameters there were significant
differences between liner designs. Peak areas
differed as much as 100% between single
taper with wool and single taper. Overall,
the correct choice of liner design and injector
parameters can increase peak areas and
reduce detection limits by up to 300%.
Since inlet liner selection is so important, and
yet unfortunately frequently misunderstood
or overlooked, SGE has made some changes
to our inlet liner range to make selection

Taper / Gooseneck
• A bottom taper focuses sample onto the head of the
column and minimizes sample contact with metal parts
of the inlet.
• Remember – the addition of quartz wool to your inlet
liner promotes mixing of analytes, aids the vaporization
of liquid samples, works as a trap to collect non-volatile
residue in the sample (i.e. protects capillary column from
‘dirty’ samples).
• Ensures quartz wool remains in the correct position in the
liner.
• Excellent reproducibility results from the wiping of the
sample from the syringe needle and the prevention of
droplet formation.
• Minimizes high molecular weight discrimination.
• Bottom taper focuses sample onto the head of the column
and minimizes contact with metal parts of the inlet.
• Ensures quartz wool remains in the correct position in the

• Excellent reproducibility results from the wiping of the
sample from the syringe needle and the prevention of
droplet formation.
• ConnecTite™ liners facilitate maximum transfer of sample
to GC column and inhibit sample degradation due to hot
metal components inside inlet.
• Systems equipped with electronic pressure control require
a hole in the liner body to maintain system gas flows.
• ConnecTite™ liners that have a hole near the bottom are
best suited to analyses where a tailing solvent peak could
affect early eluting compounds. ConnecTite™ liners with
a hole at the top of the liner will improve your analysis
with aqueous injections or where compounds of interest
elute away from the solvent peak.

Injection Technique
There are varied injection techniques for use
dependent on sample type and analysis, an
explanation of each is provided below. A
significant proportion of chromatography
Injection
Technique
Recommended Geometry Type
separation problems are caused by
poor injection selection and technique.
Both inlet liner geometry and injection
technique are critical considerations.
Technique Description
A portion of sample is split prior to loading onto the GC column. This
is achieved by holding the split vent valve open during the loading
process.
Split Injection
The sample is vaporized in the inlet chamber, and is then swept through
the liner and a portion of the vapor is loaded onto the GC column.
The remainder (typically the majority of sample vapor) flows past the
column entrance and out of the split vent.
The flow through the liner is proportional to the split ratio that is set
for the injection parameters. For instance, a 50:1 split ratio means one
portion of sample will be transferred to the GC column for roughly
every 50 parts that are sent out the split vent. If the GC column flow
is set for 1 mL/min, the flow through the liner will be approximately
51mL/min. If we assume an internal liner volume of 1mL and a flow rate
of 51mL/min through that liner, it will take approximately 1.2 seconds
to clear the sample vapor from the liner.
Splitless injection is similar to a split injection since the same hardware
is used however, unlike split injection, during the sample vaporization
and loading, the Split Vent Valve remains closed for some period
of time. This is referred to as the Splitless Hold Time and is typically
15-60 seconds in duration. This allows a maximum amount of sample
to transfer to the GC column instead of being lost out the split vent.
Once the loading step is complete, the split vent valve is opened and
the remaining sample is swept out. It is very important that the splitless
hold time be optimized for your analytes. If the split vent is opened
too early, unvaporized sample may be purged from the inlet and not
transferred to the column. If it is held too long, it can lead to excess
solvent transfer and peak tailing.
Splitless
Injection
An advantage of splitless techniques is that the sample residence time
within the liner is typically much longer than that of a split injection.
Therefore higher molecular weight compounds have more time to
achieve adequate vaporization and the discrimination effects that are
often seen with split injections are reduced.
Direct Injection
Direct injection enables a nearly complete transfer of sample vapor to
the GC column. Inlet liner geometry can be critical for complete sample
transfer, see ConnecTite™ inlet liners in previous table and refer to ‘How
Geometry Works’.
Programmable
Temperature
Vaporization
(PTV)
PTV injectors are unique in that they allow sample to be injected at
cooler temperatures and then heated to vaporize and ultimately
transfer to the GC column.
This technique can also function like a pseudo large volume injection
technique, in that a large volume of sample can be introduced into
the injector at a cooler temperature, the sample can be de-solvated,
then rapidly heated to sweep the analytes of interest onto the GC
column. This increases sensitivity and lowers detection limits while
minimizing the effects of excessive solvent in the system. The low initial
temperature also helps protect heat sensitive compounds that might
otherwise degrade in a flash vaporization technique.
Inlet Liner Packing
Many liner designs include deactivated
quartz wool packing, some of the reasons
for this are:
• Provides additional surface area for
complete volatilization of the sample to
minimize sample discrimination.
154
• Traps non-volatile components and
septum particles from reaching the
column.
• Wipes any sample from the syringe
needle, thereby increasing reproducibility
and preventing sample residue build-up
at the septum.
Copies of technical posters presented at scientific congresses can be downloaded at
sge.com/support/documents
The position of the quartz wool in the inlet
liner is critical. The quartz wool is normally
present in the inlet liner to mix and
homogenize the vapor prior to splitting
and entering the column. Quartz wool
is often used at the bottom of liners (just
above the column) to trap non-volatile
contaminants and septum particles from
entering the column. This is also an ideal
placement when polar solvents are used.
More importantly, however, is the location
of the quartz wool when used in the
needle wipe. At the point of injection the
needle tip must penetrate the quartz wool
to maximize vaporization of the sample
and to wipe any droplets that form on
the needle tip, before removal from the
injection port. Unfortunately, there is no
guarantee that once the liner is installed in
the injector, the quartz wool plug will stay
in the correct position. SGE developed the
FocusLiner™ to specifically overcome this
problem.
the needle tip while providing sufficient
surface area for volatilization of the
liquid sample. Current liner designs
that utilize quartz wool to improve
vaporization are frequently positioned
incorrectly. Compounding the problem,
the unsecured quartz wool plug can be
easily dislodged by repeated injections.
Each insertion of the needle tip can
progressively move the plug until no
further contact is made. Dislodging the
plug can also occur through a sudden
change in inlet pressure. For instance,
removing the column from the injector
or changing the septum can cause a
sudden pressure change in the injector
resulting in the movement of the plug.

calibration is easily achievable showing the
effectiveness of the secured quartz wool.
Temperature
One of the most important objectives
in reproducible chromatography is the
optimization of the inlet system to
achieve complete, homogenous, and
reproducible vaporization of the injected
sample and appropriate temperature
selection is critical to achieve the
vaporization.

The inlet should be heated to a high
enough temperature in order to achieve a
thorough vaporization of the introduced
sample but not so high that it leads to

sample degradation (e.g. breakdown
of thermally labile compounds). Other
issues with the temperature being too
high include discrimination – this is
where the vaporization of the sample
changes from injection to injection, or
if some compounds are vaporized to a
lesser extent than others. Discrimination
can have a negative effect on run-to-run
reproducibility.
Inlet Liner Volume
The purpose of the injection port is to
allow the introduction of a sample into
the gas chromatograph in a reproducible
manner. The vaporized sample should
be a true representation of the liquid
sample and, unless specifically desired,
should be injected without chemical
change. The elevated temperatures
used in the inlet vaporize the liquid
sample to a gas for transfer to the head
of the column. This phase transition
is accompanied by a very significant
volume change. The volume of the
resulting vapor must be small enough
to fit within the volume of the liner,
specifically in splitless modes. If the
vapor volume exceeds the liner's inner
volume, that will cause overflow of
the sample vapor from the liner. This is
often referred to as flashback. Flashback
typically results in contamination of
the inlet system which in turn leads to
carryover (ghost peaks) and poor runto-run reproducibility.
There are several calculators on the
internet that can help facilitate these
calculations using these formulae:

Flashback
The ideal conditions are for vapor
volumes to be kept below 70-80 % of
the liner’s inner volume, as for splitless
injections. Common splitless injectors
today have a function known as ‘pulsed
splitless’ mode. In this mode, the head
pressure of the inlet system is increased
during the injection process. This
increased head pressure helps contain
the sample vapor within the liner volume
and inhibits the sample from flashing
back into the system gas lines.
Sample Type
For information on sample types see
the GC method development section
pages 250-253.
One of the disadvantages of the
splitless injection technique is that it
is susceptible to flashback. Due to the
slower gas flows through the inlet liner
and increased sample vaporization (due
to increased residence time) flashback
becomes more likely. There are several
ways to minimize flashback. The easiest
is to know the internal liner volume and
sample (solvent) expansion volumes.

Risks
• Can leave residue inside your

• If not re-tightened after
installation and temperature
cycles of the GC, air may
enter the column or detector
decreasing

SilTite™ FingerTite –
The Smart Alternative
SilTite™ FingerTite is the next generation
ferrule system for gas chromatography
systems providing these important
benefits:
• Easy to install.
• Reliable, leak-free seal.
• Cannot be over-tightened.
• No tools required.
SilTite™ FingerTite has been developed with
the unique, leak and air free properties of
SilTite™ ferrules, resulting in superior air
tightness to reduce background noise in
sensitive MS applications so you can use
them with confidence.
SGE SilTite™ ferrules and nuts are
manufactured from stainless steel. SilTite™
ferrules MUST be used with SilTite™ nuts
due to matching angles of the nut and the
ferrule. Since inlet, detector and MS transfer
lines are also made of stainless steel, the
thermal expansions of all connecting parts
are the same. This alleviates the problem
with seating of graphite/Vespel® ferrules
where they need to be tightened after
several GC temperature cycles before a
perfect seal is finally attained. The SilTite™
ferrules are initially sold as a kit with ferrules
and matching nuts.

SilTite™ FingerTite Starter Kits
by Instrument
Each starter kit includes all the parts
necessary to convert one GC or GC/MS
system (one injector and one detector) to
the SilTite™ FingerTite system suitable for
installing 0.1 – 0.25 mm ID capillary columns.
In addition there are five matching SilTite™
FingerTite nuts, 10 x 0.4 mm ID SilTite™
FingerTite ferrules and a ferrule install
tool which allows you to seat the ferrule
in the correct position on the capillary
column. Please note normal extended nuts
cannot be used with SilTite™ ferrules. The
use of SilTite™ FingerTite system requires
that the inlet and detector end of the GC
or GCMS must be reconfigured with the
appropriate kit from SGE. After the system
is reconfigured, only one nut and one
ferrule type is needed for all GC or GCMS
systems. The Smart Alternative!
For your GC instrument solution with
SilTite™ FingerTite use the Instrument Quick
Pick Guide on pages 167-180.
Can I reuse the SilTite™
FingerTite ferrules?
Once the SilTite™ FingerTite ferrule is crimped
onto the tubing using the
ferrule installation tool,
the fitting is permanent.
However, the column can
be removed and reinserted multiple times without
tools.
Part No. 073610
GC Supplies | Connections, Ferrules and Unions
Can I touch the
nut even when the
oven is at 200 ºC?
No - the nut will be
at the oven temperature so it will be
too hot to touch.
However, the nut
is designed to dissipate the heat from
the injector/detector/transfer line, so
that when the oven
is cool you can
change the column
without waiting for
the injector/detector to cool down.
For Mass Spectrometers always follow
the manufacturer’s
recommendations
to vent the system.
Can I break my
column if I overtighten the nut?
No - with the SilTite™
FingerTite
system you cannot
generate enough
force with your fingers tow break the
column. Never use
pliers or any other
tool on the nut or
you will possibly
damage the Adaptor as well as break
the column.

Note: If unions are supplied with a “short” nut they can be
converted into an “extended” nut. Replacement ferrules
would then be standard ferrules, rather than the supplied

Nuts for SGE Fittings
Standard Stainless Steel
Extended Stainless Steel
SGE has taken special consideration of the
design of the connections and nuts for
fittings. The nuts and fittings are unique in
that the fitting is flat faced and the point of
the ferrule is towards the nut. This makes
a more robust system since the angled
portion of the fitting cannot be damaged.
SGE nuts are made in a variety of:

GC Supplies | Gas Purifiers for GC
Gas purifiers are an essential part of your GC
analysis. Without the appropriate gas purifier,
problems such as noisy baselines, moisture
entering GC column, excessive bleed,
reduced column lifetime and irreproducible
results will occur. These problems are created
by hydrocarbons, moisture and oxygen in
the carrier gases. It is recommended to use
individual purifiers to handle each of these
typical contaminants.
Gas Purifier Kit
Which Purifier?
As a minimum requirement for capillary gas
chromatography, especially for a new GC,
SGE recommends the kit be connected as
shown below, consisting of four gas purifiers
to remove moisture, contaminating organic
substances and oxygen.
The stainless steel bodies are approximately
300 mm long and 23 mm OD. They are
designed for use at ambient temperature
and at pressures below 100 psi.

Moisture Purifiers
Under laboratory temperatures and flows
normally associated with GC carrier gases
i.e. less than 1 L/min, these purifiers can be
expected to reduce the moisture in a high
purity gas stream to less than 10 ppb and
under these conditions are expected to
absorb about 12 g of H2O.
GC Oven
The moisture trap can be used on all Air,
Helium, Hydrogen and Nitrogen carrier gas
lines.

Transparent outer casing (approximately 32
mm OD x 280 mm long) allows lifetime to be
gauged from indicator (not recommended for
high resolution capillary chromatography).
Oxygen Scrubbers
At flows of 1 L/min or less, of high purity
gas (hydrogen, helium, and nitrogen) at
laboratory temperatures, these scrubbers
are expected to produce carrier gas
containing less than 15 ppb of oxygen.
The oxygen traps can also remove small
amounts of water without affecting the
oxygen capacity. When used in conjunction
with an indicating oxygen trap (GF-IOT),
the oxygen content at the GC can be as
low as 2 ppb.
Hydrocarbon Traps
The trap capacity depends on the overall
molecular weight of the contamination.
Typically at 1 L/min, C4 hydrocarbons should
be less than 15 ppb. The Hydrocarbon trap
absorbs hydrocarbon contaminants in the
carrier gas. It has an impervious outer stainless
steel casing and can remove hydrocarbons
to achieve a level as low as 15 ppb.

SilFlow™ Technology
Introducing the latest chromatography
solution from SGE – SilFlow™
SGE recognizes the need of today’s
chromatographers to move from tubing
based flow systems to planar microchannel
systems to deliver flexible solutions for both
gas and liquid chromatography. SilFlow™
is an innovation in design and fabrication
of highly efficient and reliable microflow
systems. In gas and liquid chromatography
it is essential to design microflow systems
that minimize dead volumes to achieve
maximum chromatography performance.

SilFlow™ Channel Deactivation
The ever increasing sensitivity of analysis
in gas chromatography extends to all
components in the GC system. SGE's
expertise in surface chemistry has developed
a series of deactivation technologies to
ensure that the metal channels in SilFlow™
exhibit the same inertness as the fused silica
capillary columns.

Improved Chromatography
Peak Shape
Because SilFlow™ channels are planar and
can be fabricated precisely, ideal microflow
arrangements can be designed so that
no detectable peak distortion is observed
(Figure 1).
SilFlow™ Connection Systems
SGE sought to overcome the challenge of
the connection system for microchannel
devices, since conventional graphite or
Vespel® ferrule systems must not be used
as they do not form a perfect seal, and
there is the risk of particles from these
materials getting into the channels. SGE
has invented metal SilTite™ ferrules for use
with fused silica tubing, and has adapted
this innovation so that metal ferrules can be
used with SilFlow™ microchannel systems
(Figure 2). Wrenches are not required for
a perfect reliable seal, even for the most
sensitive MS systems, making SilFlow™
installation simple. Depending on the type
of connecting tubing used, the SilFlow™
system can be operated at pressures up
to 50,000 psi (3,500 Bar), contact SGE for
further details.

SilFlow™ systems are available with two
different connection configurations:
• Holder Based System - With this
connection
system
the
SilFlow™
microchannel wafer is located in a holder
to which the tubing connections are made.
This system is useful when the wafer
is changed regularly or in applications
where the wafer could be damaged in
use through use of aggressive chemicals
or severe contamination. The wafer can
be changed quickly and economically.
Therefore, in addition to tees and multidimensional systems, SGE makes SilFlow™
technology available to our customers who
have a need for a particular microchannel
design. The process and design of components
is flexible enough to make custom microflow
systems quickly and economically. To discuss
your microflow system requirements, contact
your local SGE office.
• Direct Connection – Connections can
be made directly onto threaded bosses
incorporated onto the microchannel wafer,
refer to the images on page 185.
Enabling GC x GC
SilFlow™ Flexible Fabrication
Techniques
SGE understands that SilFlow™ technology
is broadly applicable to many areas and
that the possibilities in multidimensional
chromatography applications are endless.
SilFlow™ Configurations
The first application of SilFlow™ technology
is for a range of 3 Port for HPLC (see page
231), 3 and 4 port splitters for GC. Possible
SilFlow™ configurations are demonstrated
on page 185.
To improve analyte detectability and deliver
a high separation capacity, complex samples
can be analyzed using a comprehensive
two-dimensional GC technique (GC×GC).
It is applicable to many samples across the
industries outlined within this selection
guide. For your GCxGC needs, contact your
local SGE office.
GC Accessories | Splitters
Splitting in Chromatography can best be
defined through Column splitting and
Detector splitting.
to use columns of the same length and
internal diameter so that optimum flow
rates are easy to establish for each column.
Column Splitting
Detector Splitting
Column splitting facilitates concurrent
chromatograms to be produced from the
same sample (using columns of different
selectivity).
Detector splitting is best used for complex
samples that contain analytes with functional
groups that can be selectively monitored
by different detectors. The splitting enables
simultaneous chromatograms to be produced
by the same column and injection.
It is the technique of diverting fractions
of the sample vapor eluting from the inlet
to more than one column and associated
detector. The carrier gas flow rate through
each column and into each detector is
defined by the length and diameter of each
column and the applied common mid-point
pressure. In most instances it is convenient
184
Detector splitting can be defined as diverting
fractions of the column effluent to more than
one detector. This technique has only one
column that is connected between the injector
and the splitting device. The split ratio (relative
amount of the sample reaching a detector)
Copies of technical posters presented at scientific congresses can be downloaded at
sge.com/support/documents
is defined by the length and diameter of the
restrictor tubing used, and is proportional to
the flow rate down the restrictor. The range
of split ratios can be extended by using a
midpoint carrier gas supply.
One Injection to Two Capillary Columns
SGE manufactures several styles splitters
including inlet and outlet splitters. All of SGE’s
splitters have an inert flow path, irrespective of
whether they are glass lined or stainless steel.

Traditional Splitters
A relatively simple way of achieving a
simultaneous two column analysis is to
make a single injection and split the sample
between two columns with different phase
selectivity. The inlet splitter carries out this
function and 3 kits are available which
suit 0.25, 0.32 and 0.53 mm ID capillary
columns. The kits consist of a special
Glass Lined Union, a length of uncoated,
deactivated fused silica and ferrules.

Detector 2
The outlet splitter allows the analytes from
a capillary column to be split between two
different detectors. The ratio of flow to each
is controlled by adjusting the lengths and/or
ID of splitter tubing. The basis of the splitter
function is the pressure drop across each of
the splitter tubes.
As a general rule in selecting splitter tubing for
capillary columns, the combined internal areas
of the splitter tubing should be approximately
70% – 80% of the internal area of the
capillary column. Once this criterion has been
satisfied, the lengths of the splitter tubing
should be as short as possible to minimize the
overall pressure drop.

This outlet splitter system can be used with
all flexible fused silica capillary columns
from 0.10 to 0.53 mm ID. The micro control
valve provides a continuously variable range
of split ratios, and using different length
and ID tubing increases the split ratios
achievable. Closing off the valve closes the
base outlet only, full flow remains through
the side arms. A make-up gas tee piece
is built into the valve which eliminates
potential dead volume problems and allows
detector linearity to be maintained.

GC Accessories | Micro-control Valves
Micro-control valves can be used for a wide
range of applications in chromatography, as
well as analytical science. Generally, micro
needle valves are used for fine control of
gas or liquid flows. Most valves can be used
at elevated temperatures over a wide range
of pressures from high vacuum to a few
atmospheres.
GC Accessories
Two basic configurations exist in the
valve product range, – an “L” and a “T”
configuration (Figure 1).
Effect of Temperature on Flow
As the temperature of a gas is raised, the
collisional frequency of the gas molecules
rises and the effective viscosity of the gas
increases. While the effect varies from one
gas to another, the overall effect is that
increasing the temperature decreases the
anticipated flow through the valve.
Valve Specifications
SGE valve codes are descriptive and can be
explained as follows:
Figure 1: “L” and a “T” configuration.
If the application requires in line, on/off
control or metering of a single gas stream,
choose an “L” configuration, i.e. BMCV,
MCV, MOVP, MOV or SMOV.
If the application requires diversion or splitting
from the main stream of gas to another
column or detector and so on, choose a “T”
configuration, i.e. MOVT, MOVPT or MCVT.
NOTE: In all valves of the “T” configuration, flow through
the cross arms continues whether the valve is “open” or
“closed”. Metering only occurs on the vertical arm. The
relative flows between the side arm and the vertical arm
when the valve is opened will depend on the relative
restriction in the flow lines downstream of the valve.
Effect of Viscosity
The flow of a gas through an orifice is affected
by its viscosity. Different gases have different
viscosities and so the flow through valves will
vary according to the gas being used.

Low Cost Stainless Steel Control Valves
The BMCV, an inexpensive mini-valve, is
ideal for on-line micro control for elevated
pressures to 6 atmospheres (90 psi), and
temperatures from ambient to 100 °C.
This valve is ideally used for septum purge
and non-precision flow control. The valve
accepts 1/16” OD flow lines.
The BMCV-1 has been the “work-horse” of
the SGE injector kits and control modules for
many years. Depending on the gas, it can
provide smooth flow metering up to 2 liter/
min (Figure 1).
Experimental Data BMCV-1 Valves
The BMCV-A is similar to the BMCV-1, but
the finer taper allows for smooth control
in the range from 0-250 mL/min (Figure 2).
An inexpensive kit (P/N 1034606) is available to adapt SGE micro valves to accept
fused silica capillary columns or tubing. The
kit consists of inserts to reduce the bores
of the connecting arm plus special nuts and
ferrules.

GC Accessories | Cold Traps
Increase sensitivity without
changing columns
Sample Focusing
GC Accessories
Cold traps are used to increase sensitivity
without altering the method. Cold traps
improve the signal-to-noise ratio and increase
the detection limit of an analysis. When a
peak is focused, or ‘trapped’, its bandwidth
decreases significantly causing the sample to
concentrate in a very small area of the capillary
column. The result is a very sharp peak that
has a high signal-to-noise ratio.
How do cold traps work?
A cold trap works by cooling a very small area
of the capillary column. Cooling causes the
sample to spend more time in the stationary
phase, which slows it down. As a sample
peak approaches the cold spot, the leading
edge of the sample band will travel slower,
and eventually the trailing edge will catch it.
The sample band becomes very narrow and
the cooling is then turned off, releasing the
narrowed sample peak. An example of this
process is shown in Figure 1.
192
GC Accessories | Cold Traps
Where to trap? At the start or end of
the column?
For long splitless injections, Purge & Trap and
SPME, cold traps are used at the beginning
of the column to reduce band broadening
created by the long injection time. A cold
trap placed at the start of the column also
allows higher oven starting temperatures to
be used, decreasing analysis cycle times.
A cold trap placed at the end of the column
can be used to sharpen up individual peaks
before they reach the detector. This is
particularly useful on long runs with trace
analysis, where signal-to-noise ratios can
be increased 100 times.
Figure 1
GC Accessories | AirSharp™
Compressed Air Peak Focusing
The AirSharp™ is a peak-focusing GC accessory
that uses ambient temperature compressed
air to cool a very small area of the capillary
column, rather than the standard liquid
carbon dioxide (CO2) or liquid nitrogen (N2)
used in many of the currently available cold
traps.
Designed to focus individual high boiling, late
eluting peaks just prior to the compounds
entering the detector, the AirSharp™ increases
the signal-to-noise ratio and sensitivity of
individual peaks thereby lowering detection
limits and making low-level analyses easier.
The risk of contamination onto the capillary
column resulting from excess large volume
injections is also decreased.

GC Accessories | gc-BackFlush System
The gc-BackFlush system reverses the flow
through the column at a pre-determined
time. This allows the heavier compounds in
a mixture to be flushed out of the injection
port instead of traveling slowly through the
column until they reach the detector. This
results in much shorter run times than would
normally be expected for the analysis.
The gc-BackFlush system consists of :
• A control unit that monitors internal and
downstream carrier gas pressures and
supplies carrier gas to the outlet of the
capillary column.
• A low dead volume tee piece that allows
carrier gas to be switched in the forward
and reverse directions.
• Mounting brackets, 1/16" stainless
steel tubing, spare nuts and ferrules,
comprehensive instructions and fused silica
restrictors to suit most column types.

GC Accessories | Flame Ionization Detector (FID)
The flame ionization detector (FID) uses a
flame source to ionize compounds, it is the
most commonly used GC detector. The FID
is mass flow dependent, and is used when
analyzing compounds (including all organic
compounds) that ionize in a hydrogen
and air flame. It is commonly used in the
environmental, food flavor and fragrance,
petrochemical industries. Because of this, it is
considered a universal detector, however inert
gases, oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and
carbon monoxide produce limited response,
and non linear responses are common for
heavily halogenated compounds due to the
low number of C/H bonds.
When a sample combusts in a hydrogen/air
flame and ionizes, the signal is produced.
Being a mass sensitive detector the FID
responds to the amount of material passing
through the flame at a given time, which is
directly proportional to the amount injected.
FID jets have different tip dimensions: the
smaller tips are ideal for analysis where high
sensitivity is desired (<0.25 mm ID); general
purpose analysis uses a medium tip size; and
for analysis using thick film columns the larger
tip sizes are recommended (as the smaller and
medium sized tips are inclined to block).
Limitations of detection occur when
compounds are below the baseline noise
(column bleed, gas contaminants and
electrical noise). The detector has reached
its maximum linear range when an increase
in sample concentration no longer correlates
with an increase in response.
FID temperature
should always be
above the oven
temperature
to
prevent condensation of the sample
or stationary phase
in the detector.
Maintenance of your FID
GC Accessories
Contamination of your FID can occur from
sample residue and stationary phase bleed.
Evidence of contamination can be white
silica powder around the jet which leads to
increased background noise. High levels of
contamination will cause noise spikes due to
silica particles entering the flame. As a result
of noise building, sensitivity reduces.
For maximum FID
sensitivity, set the
air flow 10 times
higher than the
hydrogen flow.
If excessive tailing or adsorption occurs, it is
likely that fused silica has broken off in the
jet tip. This commonly occurs during column
installation, and can be rectified by removing
the jet and cleaning out the jet with standard
cleaning kits. After reassembly, ensure the
detector temperature reaches 150 ºC prior
to installing a column which will prevent any
water from being present.
