About the Gas Clean Filter System
The Agilent Gas Clean Filter system delivers high purity
gases to your analytical instruments, reducing the risk of
column damage, sensitivity loss, and instrument downtime.
The filters are designed for use with the GC, GC/MS,
ICP- OES, ICP- MS, LC/MS, and any other analysis instrument
using carrier gas. Six filters are available, including CO2,
oxygen, moisture, and organics trap (charcoal).
Components
The Gas Clean Filter System consists of a connecting unit
and filter (Figure 1). The connecting unit is equipped with
inlet and outlet connectors for the gas lines, and two
needle- like valves that automatically start the flow of gas
once a filter is attached. The filters are made from a
heavy- walled polycarbonate sealed at the base with PTFE.
When installed onto the connecting unit, the needle- like
valves puncture the PTFE seals and allow gas to flow
through the filter.

Features
The Gas Clean Filter System delivers the following features
and benefits:
• Cleaner gas, longer instrument life, greater sensitivity,
higher data accuracy, and overall long- term stability for
your instruments and analyses.
• A high- flow connecting unit that handles flow rates up to
20 L/min for collision gas applications and supply gas for
ICP- MS, ICP- OES, and LC- MS.
• A fast- stabilizing and absorbent filter material.
• Filter housing constructed with a transparent and
virtually unbreakable, heavy- walled polycarbonate
material.
• The ability to change the Gas Clean Filter without tools
or gas shut- off.
Filter types
Each Gas Clean Filter type is designed to filter out a
specific impurity that may exist in the gas supply. The
following filter types are available:
• Carbon Dioxide - Eliminates CO2 from supply gas to the
Total Organic Carbon (TOC) analyzer, and improves
sensitivity and accuracy in TOC analysis.
• Oxygen - Prevents oxidation of the GC column, septum,
liner, and glass wool.
• Moisture - Delivers faster stabilization times for
increased GC productivity, and prevents hydrolization
damage to the stationary phase, column, liner, glass wool,
or septum in the GC.
• Process Moisture - Prevents oxidation of GC components
and is safe to use with acetylene in process GC
applications.
• Charcoal - Removes organic compounds and ensures
correct performance of FID detectors in the GC.
• GC/MS - Delivers faster stabilization times for increased
GC productivity, removes oxygen, moisture, and
hydrocarbons from the carrier gas for MS applications,
and provides ultimate GC column protection.

Replacing the Gas Clean Filter
When to replace the Gas Clean Filter
As gas passes through the filter material, the filter picks up
impurities and eventually becomes consumed over time.
When this occurs, an increased amount of impurities reach
the indicating material, which causes the material to change
color from the top- down.
When 75% or more of the indicating material’s color has
changed, this indicates that the filter is consumed (see
Figure 28).

User Guide
Using the Gas Clean Filter System
Checking for Leaks
During leak- free operation, the filter indicator should not
change color for several months, depending on the quality of
your gas.
If you notice a color change in your filter’s indicating
material immediately following installation, this indicates a
gas leak in your system, or poor gas quality. Take note
whether the color change occurred from the top down or
from the bottom up, and refer to one of the following
sections:
• “Indicator changes color from the top down” on page 37
• “Indicator changes color from the bottom up” on page 38
Indicator changes color from the top down
If the indicating material changed color from the top down
(see Figure 32), there is a leak upstream of the filter in your
gas line, or your gas quality is poor. Check for leaks at the
cylinder, regulator, and fittings, and check your gas quality.

Indicator changes color from the bottom up
If your filter’s indicator changes color from the bottom up
shortly after installation (see Figure 33), this indicates a
leak downstream of the filter in your gas line. Check for
leaks between the filter and your instrument.
