General Information
Important Safety Warnings
Before moving on, there are several important safety notices that you should
always keep in mind when using the 5975 Series Mass Selective Detector.
Many internal parts of the MSD carry dangerous voltages
If the MSD is connected to a power source, even if the power switch is off,
potentially dangerous voltages exist on:
• The wiring between the MSD power cord and the AC power supply, the AC
power supply itself, and the wiring from the AC power supply to the power
switch.
With the power switch on, potentially dangerous voltages also exist on:
• All electronics boards in the instrument.
• The internal wires and cables connected to these boards.
• The wires for any heater.
WA RN ING
All these parts are shielded by covers. With the covers in place, it should be difficult
to accidentally make contact with dangerous voltages. Unless specifically
instructed to, never remove a cover unless the detector, inlet, or oven are turned off.
WA RN ING
If the power cord insulation is frayed or worn, the cord must be replaced. Contact
your Agilent service representative.
Connecting the MSD to power sources that are not equipped with protective
earth contacts creates a shock hazard for the operator and can damage the
instrument.
Interrupting the protective conductor inside or outside the MSD or
disconnecting the protective earth terminal creates a shock hazard for the
operator and can damage the instrument.
Make sure the power cords supplied with the MSD are appropriate for your
country and site before using them. Maintain easy access to the power cords
so they can be disconnected during maintenance.
Site Preparation Guide
7
5975 Series Site Prep.book Page 8 Thursday, January 31, 2008 9:47 AM
General Information
The use of incorrect or makeshift fuses or the short-circuiting of fuse holders
creates a shock hazard for the operator and can damage the instrument.
Replace fuses only with fuses of identical current rating and type.
Excessive fluctuations in the line voltage can create a shock hazard and can
damage the instrument. Make sure the supply voltage does not fluctuate more
than +5% or -10% from the rated voltage. This equipment must be installed in a
Category II environment as defined in IEC 664.
Electrostatic discharge is a threat to MSD electronics
The printed circuit (PC) boards in the MSD can be damaged by electrostatic
discharge. Do not touch any of the boards unless it is absolutely necessary. If
you must handle them, wear a grounded wrist strap and take other antistatic
precautions. Wear a grounded wrist strap any time you must remove the MSD
covers.
Many parts are dangerously hot
Many parts of the MSD operate at temperatures high enough to cause serious
burns.
You should always cool heated areas of the MSD to room temperature before
working on them. They will cool faster if you first set the temperature of the
heated zone to room temperature. Turn the zone off after it has reached the
setpoint. If you must perform maintenance on hot parts, use a wrench and
wear gloves. Whenever possible, cool the part of the instrument that you will
be maintaining before you begin working on it.
8
WA RN ING
Be careful when working behind the gas chromatograph (GC). During cool-down
cycles, the GC emits hot exhaust which can cause burns.
WA RN ING
The insulation around the GC inlets, detectors, valve box, and the insulation cups is
made of refractory ceramic fibers. To avoid inhaling fiber particles, we recommend
the following safety procedures: ventilate your work area; wear long sleeves,
gloves, safety glasses, and a disposable dust/mist respirator; dispose of insulation
in a sealed plastic bag; wash your hands with mild soap and cold water after
handling the insulation.

5975 Series Site Prep.book Page 9 Thursday, January 31, 2008 9:47 AM
General Information
Hydrogen Safety
Hydrogen gas may be used as carrier gas, and/or as fuel for certain GC
detectors. When mixed with air, hydrogen can form explosive mixtures.
A detailed discussion of hydrogen safety appears in Chapter 1 of the Agilent
5975 MSD Troubleshooting and Maintenance Manual. Read this material
before using hydrogen with the MSD.
WA RN ING
When using hydrogen (H2) as the carrier gas or fuel gas, be aware that hydrogen
gas can flow into the oven and create an explosion hazard. Therefore, be sure that
the supply is off until all connections are made, and ensure that the GC inlet and
detector column fittings are either connected to a column or capped at all times
when hydrogen gas is supplied to the instrument.
Hydrogen is flammable. Leaks, when confined in an enclosed space, may create a
fire or explosion hazard. In any application using hydrogen, leak test all
connections, lines, and valves before operating the instrument. Always turn off the
hydrogen supply at its source before working on the instrument.
WA RN ING
The MSD cannot detect leaks in gas streams. For this reason, it is vital that column
fittings should always be either connected to a column, or have a cap or plug
installed.
When using hydrogen gas, check the system for leaks as described by your
local Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) requirements to prevent
possible fire and explosion hazards. Always check for leaks after changing a
tank or servicing the gas lines. Always make sure the vent line is vented into a
fume hood.

Space and Weight Requirements
Table 2 lists dimension and weight information for the MSD and related
components. Your site must have enough bench space for the MSD, GC, data
system, and accessories (Figure 1). In addition, there must be sufficient space
around the system for ventilation and maintenance access. At least 30 cm
(12 inches) to the left of the MSD and at least 20 cm (8 1/4 inches) behind the
MSD must be kept clear.
Benches must be sturdy enough to support the weight of the entire system.
The foreline pump can be located on the laboratory bench or on the floor. It
must be close to the MSD because it is connected by a 200-cm (79-inch) hose.
The hose is stiff and cannot be bent sharply.

Electrical Requirements
You are responsible for providing appropriate electrical power and power
outlets for all of the components in your 5975 Series MSD system. Power
considerations include:
• Voltage ranges of major components
• Power configurations
• Power requirements
• Power plugs and cords
Voltage ranges of major components
The 5975 Series MSD includes a full-range power supply that can operate
without reconfiguration on either of two wide ranges of single-phase
alternating current (AC) electrical power:
• 120-127 VAC 60 Hz (typical for North America)
• 200-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz (typical for Europe and Japan)
The foreline pump also draws its power from the MSD. However, a different
foreline pump is supplied depending on the voltage range on which the MSD
will be operating. The pump is supplied according to the standard voltage in
the country from which the order originates. For example, if an order
originates from an Agilent Technologies sales office in Germany, the foreline
pump supplied will be configured to operate on the standard voltage and
frequency of electrical power in Germany.
NO TE
The MSD does not support 100 VAC input power. In countries that have only 100 VAC
power, a step-up transformer must be used to provide the appropriate voltage to the MSD.
CAU TI O N
If an instrument is being ordered from one location but is to be installed in another
location with different electrical power characteristics, this must be noted on the order.
A special note must also be made if the electrical power at the site is different from the
standard electrical power in that country.
Site Preparation Guide
23
5975 Series Site Prep.book Page 24 Thursday, January 31, 2008 9:47 AM
Site Preparation
Power configurations
Electrical power for the MSD must be single-phase. The neutral wire cannot be
used for safety grounding. The ground wire should carry zero current except
for ground-fault current or static electric discharge. The entire system should
share an isolated, noise-free electrical ground. This system ground should be
electrically separate from the ground for the rest of the building, back to the
main ground for the facility. Power configurations are provided in Table 3.
WA RN ING
Connecting an MSD to a power source which is not equipped with a protective earth
contact (ground) creates a shock hazard for the operator and can damage the
instrument.
WA RN ING
Interrupting the protective conductor inside or outside the MSD or disconnecting the
protective earth terminal (ground) creates a shock hazard for the operator and can
damage the instrument.

* The MSD operates on either voltage range. The foreline and turbo pumps are supplied for the voltage range suitable to the
country where the order originates
† Americas 120 V requires 20 A dedicated line. Americas 240 V requires 15 A dedicated line.
‡ Option 003, fast oven, is a unit with operating range 198 to 231 V. Most laboratories have 4-wire service resulting in 208 V at
the wall receptacle. It is important to measure the line voltage at the receptacle for the GC.
** Requires an isolated ground and dedicated outlet.
Power plugs and cord
The MSD is supplied with a power cord and plug appropriate for the country
from which the order originates. For example, if an order originates from a
Agilent Technologies sales office in Germany, the power cord and plug
supplied will be compatible with the standard voltage and outlet configuration
in Germany. See “Power Cords" on page 41 for illustrations of the power cords
available.
Data system components also include power cords with plugs appropriate for
the country where the order was placed.
Power cord lengths for the MSD and the data system components and
accessories are approximately 2.3 m (7.5 ft).
26
CAU TI O N
If an instrument is being ordered from one location but is to be installed in another
location with different electrical power characteristics, this must be noted on the order.
A special note must also be made if the electrical power at the site is different from the
standard electrical power in that country.
WA RN ING
Make sure the power cords supplied with the MSD are appropriate for your country
and site before installing the instrument. See “Power Cords” on page 41.

WA RN ING
Do not use extension cords with the MSD or GC. Extension cords normally are not
rated to carry enough power and can be a safety hazard.
NO TE
Maintain easy access to the power cords so they can be disconnected for maintenance.
Other electrical considerations
Additional electrical considerations include:
• Electromagnetic interference (EMI), such as is generated by NMRs, radio
transmitters, and microwave links, may interfere with system performance.
• Protect the system from static electricity by observing humidity and
temperature requirements. Minimize the presence of nonconductive
products such as carpets and vinyl floor tiles.
• Install emergency-off pushbuttons that can disconnect power to the
ventilation system and all electric equipment in the room except overhead
lighting.
• Provide separate convenience outlets for building maintenance and other
appliances. Convenience outlets must be on circuits separate from the MSD
system. Convenience outlets must share the normal building distribution
ground, not the MSD system ground.
• In some geographical areas it may be advisable to install lightning
protection for personnel and equipment.

Air Conditioning and Environmental Requirements
Air conditioning considerations include temperature, humidity, airborne dust,
and exhaust venting. Each of these is considered in more detail in the
following material.
Temperature, humidity, and altitude
The 5975 Series MSD is specified for operation under the following conditions:
• Operation requires constant temperature
(variations <2 °C/h)
• Operation and storage require a noncondensing, noncorrosive atmosphere
• The temperature and humidity limits in Table 5
• Maximum altitude for operation: 2300 m (7500 ft)
Table 5
Temperature and humidity limits

Humidity (relative)
Operation
15 °C to 35 °C (59 °F to 95 °F)
40% to 80%
Storage
–20 °C to 70 °C (–4 °F to 158 °F)
0% to 95%
Environmental control systems must maintain these temperature and
humidity ranges.
The MSD is rated for 1200 Watts (4000 BTU/h). The GC and the data system
also contribute significantly to the cooling load although the exact amounts
depend on their configurations. Additional allowances should be made for
other heat sources such as heat from other equipment, heat from adjacent
rooms, and heat from laboratory personnel.

Airborne dust
Agilent Technologies recommends a maximum airborne particle density of
55 μg/m3. If you suspect your site exceeds this limit, contact your local Agilent
Technologies Customer Service Organization. Customer Engineers with
special training and equipment can test for airborne particle density. They can
offer suggestions for reducing airborne dust.
Exhaust venting
There are two sources of exhaust on the GC/MSD system: the foreline pump
and the GC split vent. The foreline pump outputs gas removed from the
vacuum manifold by the high vacuum pumps. The foreline pump exhaust will
also contain traces of solvent and sample.
WA RN ING
User safety requires that the exhaust gases from the MSD be vented externally to
the building and not recirculated by the environmental control system. Health
hazards include chemical toxicity of solvents, samples, derivitizing agents, pump
fluid vapor, and aerosolized biological samples.
WA RN ING
The pump exhaust contains carrier gas and traces of solvents, analytes, and foreline
pump oil. The supplied oil trap stops only pump oil. It does not trap or filter out toxic
chemicals. If you are using toxic solvents or toxic or flammable carrier gas, or
analyzing toxic chemicals, do not install the oil trap. Install a hose to take the pump
exhaust to a fume hood. Do not use the oil trap on any CI MSD.
The foreline pump exhaust cannot be vented into the laboratory if any
hazardous materials will be introduced into the GC/MS system, including
samples, solvents, carrier gases, and reagent gases. It must be vented external
to the building or vacuum exhausted to a fume hood.
If a negative pressure vent is not available, the length of tubing from the
foreline pump to an ambient pressure vent should not exceed 460 cm (15 ft).
The exhaust can not be connected to a positive pressure vent.
Exhaust gas venting must comply with all local environmental and safety
codes.

Regulators, tubing, and fittings
You must supply appropriate regulators for your carrier and reagent gas.
• Regulators must be dual-stage.
• Regulators must have stainless-steel (not elastomeric) diaphragms.
• They must supply gas at the pressure specified.
• They must have one outlet with 1/4-inch Swagelok fittings.
See the Agilent Technologies Chemical Analysis Columns and Supplies
Catalog or visit the Agilent Technologies Chemical Analysis website at

Laboratory Supply Requirements
Laboratory supply requirements vary with applications.
Cleaning solvents
Cleaning tasks for the MSD require the following HPLC-grade (or better)
solvents:
• Methylene chloride
• Isopropyl alcohol
• Methanol
• Acetone
• Water
Proper storage, handling, and disposal of these chemicals is required for
personal and environmental safety.
CAU TI O N
Do not use carbon disulfide as a cleaning solvent on or around the MSD. It is corrosive
and will damage the analyzer. Use of carbon disulfide as a cleaner will void the
warranty on the analyzer.
Carbon disulfide may be used as a sample solvent in standard size injections (typically
2 µL or less).
WA RN ING
Chemical solvents should be considered hazardous and must be handled with care.
Contact your chemical supplier for solvent handling and safety information,
preferably a material safety data sheet (MSDS).
Data system supplies
You will need paper for printing the results of the testing done during
installation and later for printing reports of your analyses. You will also need
appropriate supplies for making backup copies of your data files.

Receiving the System
When your MSD system is delivered, it is your responsibility to provide for
removal of the shipping containers from the truck and their storage until
installation. Contact your Agilent Technologies service representative as soon
as your shipment arrives to arrange an installation date.
Delivery and unloading
The shipping containers are large and heavy. The largest container in the
shipment is 121.9 cm (48 inches) × 121.9 cm × 121.9 cm. It contains several
smaller cartons that can be removed from the large container after delivery to
facilitate moving them to the location where the instrument is to be installed.
After removing the smaller cartons and discarding the outer container, the
largest remaining carton, may be as large as:
• 89 cm (35 inches) high
• 81 cm (32 inches) wide
• 74 cm (29 inches) deep
• 60 kg (132 lbs)
All doorways, hallways, floors, and elevators must be able to accommodate the
largest, heaviest container.
Inspecting for damage
Once the shipping containers are unloaded, examine them for any obvious
external damage. If any of the containers appear damaged, note on the
carrier's bill of lading that there is Apparent damage - subject to inspection
and test. Arrange for both the carrier's claims representative and your Agilent
Technologies service representative to be present when the containers are
unpacked.
Do not open any of the shipping containers unless a representative of Agilent
Technologies is present. Opening any of the containers without an Agilent
Technologies representative present will void the receiving warranty on
the instrument.

Site Preparation
Storage
It is your responsibility to store the containers until installation. If your site
does not have adequate storage space, the containers may be stored at your
expense in a bonded warehouse. Allow space for data system and accessory
containers too.
The environment in the storage area should be between 5 °C and 50 °C (41 °F
and 122 °F), 20% to 80% relative humidity, non-condensing and non-corrosive.
Unpacking
Do not open any shipping containers until an Agilent Technologies
representative is present. Warranty claims for missing items will not be
honored unless an Agilent Technologies representative is present to verify the
contents of each container as it is unpacked.
The actual shipping containers become your property and should not be
returned to Agilent Technologies.

Installation and Verification
Installation
Once the installation has begun, it should progress in a timely manner to
completion. Delays due to inadequate site preparation could cause loss of
instrument use during the warranty period. In extreme cases, Agilent
Technologies may ask to be reimbursed for the additional time required to
complete the installation.
The primary user and, if possible, all other users of the MSD should be present
during installation to receive familiarization instruction from the Agilent
Technologies service representative.
Verification
The final step in the installation process is system verification. Your Agilent
Technologies service representative will test the system against Agilent
Technologies specifications as documented for the product(s) or system(s) you
have purchased. (Not all tests are performed for every system.)
The Agilent Technologies service representative will not test your
system against your standards or samples. Further, the Agilent
Technologies service representative will not set up your laboratory
procedures. Assistance with laboratory procedures can be obtained from your
local Agilent Technologies Applications Engineer (AE) on a consulting basis at
additional cost.
