WARNING
Pressurized liquid CO2 is a hazardous material. Take precautions to protect
personnel from high pressures and low temperatures. CO2 in high
concentrations is toxic to humans; take precautions to prevent hazardous
concentrations. Consult your local supplier for recommended safety
precautions and delivery system design.
WARNING
Do not use copper tubing or thin-wall stainless steel tubing with liquid CO2.
Both harden at stress points and may explode.
Caution
Liquid CO2 should not be used as a coolant for temperatures below –40°C
because the expanding liquid may form solid CO2—dry ice—in the GC oven. If
dry ice builds up in the oven, it can seriously damage the GC.

Installing the CO2 Cryogenic Oven Cooling Kit
Install the inlet
1.
Turn off the GC and unplug the power cord. Allow time for all heated
zones to cool.
2.
Open the lid. If a column is installed, disconnect it at the detector end.
Remove the nut warmer, insulation, and capillary adapter, if present.
Close the lid.
3.
Turn off all gases at their sources. Disconnect the carrier and detector
gas tubing from the back panel of the instrument.

Open the GC
1.
Open the lid and locate the counterbalance cam in the left rear corner
under the lid. Keeping the lid open with one hand, loosen the screw on
the right side of the cam and lower the stop plate (on the right side of
the counterbalance cam).

Install the chassis
Install the chassis
The chassis holds the cryo valve and related hardware.
1.
If you are installing PTV cryo, install the valve onto the lower-left
position of the chassis, including the screws to hold it in place. See the
figure on the next page.
Screws to install

3.
There are four mounting holes for the chassis on the left side of the GC
(two of them are in the row of ventilation slots at the top). Place the
chassis over the holes. Insert screws through the brass eyelets and
secure them loosely. The small black grommet behind the coolant outlet
union should be over the smaller hole in the side panel.

Coolant outlet union
See the installation document for the inlet you are using to complete
this procedure.
Install the restrictor tube
1.
There is a hole in the oven inside wall that lines up with the hole for
oven tubing on the side panel. Use a thin tool to make a hole through the
insulation from the interior of the oven to the grommet in the chassis.
Do not use any of the tubing to make the hole through the insulation.
2.
The restrictor tube has a protective plastic cap on the long end. Push
this end with the cap in place, from inside the oven, through the hole in
the oven wall, the insulation, the hole in the side panel, and the rubber
grommet on the chassis.
3.
Remove the plastic cap on the end of the tube. Install a stainless steel
1/16-inch nut and a Vespel ferrule. Insert the tube in the coolant outlet
union as far as it will go and finger tighten the nut.

Install the cooling coil
4.
Inside the oven, check that the bend on the end of the restrictor tube
points up. Tighten the union nut an additional 1/2 turn.
Tube bends up
Install the cooling coil
The cooling coil is part of the ship kit.
1.
Inside the oven, locate the coil bracket. It is secured by the same screw
that holds the bottom of the heater shroud.

Installing the CO2 Cryogenic Oven Cooling Kit
Install the cooling coil
2.
Place the cooling coil in the oven with the fitting at the upper left. The
bottom center of the coil should rest on the coil bracket.
3.
Remove the stainless steel plug from the fitting on the end of the restrictor
tube. Leave the rest of the fitting in place.
4.
Connect the fittings on the restrictor tube and the coil. Finger tighten
the 1/16-inch nut.

Press the coil against the oven floor and bend the three bracket legs
around it.

7.
Check that:
•
The restrictor tube enters the oven and turns upward.
•
The restrictor tube is connected to the coil and the fittings are finger
tight.
•
The coil is near to, but makes minimal contact with the heater shroud.
Tighten the nut on the restrictor tube 1/2 turn past finger tight. Use openend and cylinder wrenches.
Install the chassis cover
1.
Start two screws into the chassis from the bottom. Do not tighten them.
2.
Place the cover over the chassis with the slots over the screws.

Install the coolant filter
Some GC owners have problems with particles in the CO2 supply that clog
the cryo valve. The filter and connector prevent this. The filter is part of the
ship kit.
Locate the arrows (flow direction) on the body of the filter. Add the
connector to the exit end of the filter. Assemble the parts as shown. Tighten
the nut with a wrench.
The cryo chassis contains one or two coolant fittings.

Remove the nut and ferrules from the coolant inlet fitting. Use these parts to
attach the filter/connector assembly to the inlet fitting.

1.
WARNING
Install a “Tee” (part number 0100-0542) at the coolant fittings. Agilent
recommends that you use spectral-link tubing (part SL-8).
The high pressure LCO2 requires thick-walled, high pressure stainless steel
tubing to avoid ruptures.

2.
Remove the nut and ferrules from the coolant inlet fitting. Use these
parts to attach the filter/connector assembly to the inlet fitting or tee
fitting.
Close the GC
1.
Reconnect the fan cable.
2.
Place the back panel against the GC. Reinstall the seven screws that
hold the panel to the GC.
3.
Lower the stop plate on the lid cam. Pull the lid forward until the cam
follower rests on the curved surface of the cam in front of the stop plate.
4.
Raise the stop plate and tighten the screw. Close the lid.

Liquid CO2 is available in high-pressure tanks containing 50 pounds of
liquid. The tank must have an internal dip tube or eductor tube to deliver
liquid CO2 instead of gas. Do not use a padded tank (one to which another
gas is added to increase the delivery pressure).
Caution
Do not install a pressure regulator on the CO2 tank, as vaporization and
cooling would occur in the regulator instead of the oven.
Dip tube

Incorrect
All fittings and tubing should be stainless steel. The pressure inside a liquid
tank can be as high as 1000 psi.
1.
Connect a CGA 320 to 1/4-inch male NPT fitting to the tank followed by
a Swagelok® 1/4-inch female NPT to 1/8-inch tube fitting (part number
SS-200-7-4).
2.
Connect the tank to the cryogenic filter inlet with 1/8-inch diameter
heavy-wall stainless steel tubing. The tubing may be up to 50 feet long.
Allow some slack in the line to make movement of the tank or GC easier.
Coil and fasten the ends of the tubing to keep it from “whipping” if it
breaks.
Installing the CO2 Cryogenic Oven Cooling Kit
Restore the GC to operating condition
Restore the GC to operating condition
1.
Install the capillary adapter, if used.
2.
Restore the column connection.
3.
Restore carrier and other gases to the instrument.
4.
Restore power.
5.
Apply your normal operating pressures. Leak-check the manifold, back
panel, and column fittings.
