Super-Clean Gas Filters are suited for the purification of
non-corrosive gases with low contamination concentrations
to a better as 6.0 grade (99,99990%) purity.
Super-Clean Gas Filter cartridges are connected to an
appropriate genuine baseplate which is installed into the
gas line.
CAUTION

•
•
The maximum concentration of Oxygen allowed in the
gas is 0,5%. (Valid only for each filter packed with
O2-adsorbent and O2-indicator.)
Maximum Gas-System pressure must not exceed 11
Bar (160 psi).
Do not install a filter kit near or in a hot area
(i.e., the hot-air exhaust at the rear of the GC).
Never re-condition any cartridge: for evt. recycling,
please contact you local supplier.
Always install filters in the appropriate position as
indicated on the front of the baseplate.
Installation of the baseplate should be done by certified
personnel.
Never install brass connectors on SS-tubing to avoid
leakage.
Please do not forget to perform a reliable leak test,
when installing either a baseplate or cartridge or both.
During installation of a new cartridge, torsion on the
plastic outer protection tube should be avoided at any
time; put your hand on top of this housing during
o
installation and keep the cartridge 90 upright. Watch
out for cracks in the inside glass tube after installation.
The white small plastic mounting plugs on the outside
housing a bit above the bottom should never be
removed; in case these plugs should be missing, the
cartridge may not be installed, but should be returned to
the supplier.
Rear end connectors at the baseplate may never be
exchanged by unauthorized personnel.
Only use original baseplates supplier warranty
and German TUEV-insurance will be waived with use of
non-original baseplate!
The LC-MS filter system requires special filter cartridges,
which allow up to 20 L/min. Mounting a GC Filter
cartridge to the LC-MS baseplate and other way around
is not possible.
NEVER INSTALL AN OXYGEN FILTER IN A
BASEPLATE POSITION SUITED FOR AIR
It will result in instant saturation!
1. Installation of a baseplate
NOTE:
As long as there is no filter cartridge connected, the baseplate
will automatically block the gas stream.
NO GAS WILL PASS THROUGH THE BASEPLATE!
A baseplate can have 1, 2 or 3 positions, depending upon the
number of gas purification applications. These instructions are
valid for each individual position/rear end fitting connection on
the baseplate.
• A Super-Clean Gas Filter can now be installed.
• ALWAYS CHECK FOR POSSIBLE GAS LEAKS BEFORE
OPERATION

1. shut off the incoming gas
2. cut the gas line, using an appropriate metal tubing cutter.
3. connect the gas inlet (1) and outlet (2) as indicated to the
rear end fitting-”in” of the baseplate; keep the connection
loose!
4. turn the carrier gas on and flush the gas line for 10 min.
with pure carrier gas, min. pressure: 8 psi
5. connect the incoming gas line tight to the rear end
fitting (do not over-tighten)
6. make sure, that the flush cap (4) is well mounted on the
baseplate; push cap down during mounting procedure
7. attach baseplate, using mounting holes (3) or use an
optional wall mounting bracket
8. flush the baseplate for 10 min. with pure carrier gas,
advised pressure: 90 psi
9. remove the flush cap from baseplate; mount a new
cartridge on the baseplate
10.flush the cartridge / whole system for 15 min. with
pure carrier gas, advised pressure: 90 psi
11.now mount the outgoing carrier gas line to the rear end
fitting-”out” of the baseplate and your analytical system is
“ready-to-go”: normally the user should not see any
notable Argon or Nitrogen peaks in your chromatogram
