Introduction
For the Thermo Scientific TSQ Endura and TSQ Quantiva system, you are responsible for
providing a suitable location, a carefully controlled operating environment, a source of power
of acceptable quality, correct gases and solvent supplies, and proper waste and exhaust
systems.
CAUTION Operating a system or maintaining it outside the power and operating
environment specifications described in this guide might cause failures of many types. The
repair of such failures is specifically excluded from the Thermo Fisher Scientific standard
warranty and service contract coverage.
Note
• For preinstallation support and additional information, contact your local Thermo
Fisher Scientific office.
• Unless otherwise noted, the information in this guide applies to both models.

Site Preparation
You are responsible for providing an acceptable installation site for the TSQ Endura or
TSQ Quantiva system before the Thermo Fisher Scientific service engineer arrives. Make sure
your laboratory meets these requirements:
• When transporting the equipment to the designated site, you have a wide turning radius
through entrances, hallways, elevators, and so on. Remember to consider the width of the
device transporting the shipping container to the lab.
• The lab has a designated location for the system modules.
• The laboratory has large, strong workbenches to support the weights of the mass
spectrometer, LC instrument, and data system module.
Contents
• Entrance
• Space and Load Requirements
• Forepumps
• Telephone
Entrance
The entrance to your facility and the width of all hallways, elevators, and so on must be a
minimum of 95 cm (37 in.). However, allow additional room for maneuvering the system
around corners, into elevators, or through doorways.
The system ships in multiple containers. The main shipping container measures 104 cm l,
95 cm w, and 135 cm h (41 in. l, 37 in. w, and 53 in. h) and, including its contents, weighs
approximately 187 kg (410 lb). Use this information to determine how to transport and
remove its contents.
Note If the lab entrance cannot accommodate a 95 cm (37 in.) container, remove the
modules from the container before moving them into the room. If you remove the
instrument from its shipping container before it is delivered to the lab site, ensure that all
the container contents remain with the instrument.

Site Preparation
Space and Load Requirements
Other equipment in your order have their own smaller shipping containers and do not require
special consideration. These modules—such as the forepumps, data system computer,
monitor, and other options—ship in separate containers. The chemicals kit typically arrives
earlier than the other parts of your order.
Space and Load Requirements
Table 2 lists the dimensions and weights for the data system and mass spectrometer system
modules. Use this information to ensure that all workbenches are large enough and strong
enough to support the modules.

Site Preparation
Forepumps
Forepumps
The TSQ Endura system uses one forepump, whereas the TSQ Quantiva system uses two.
Depending on available space, you have two options for the placement of the forepumps and
for connecting the vacuum hose from the mass spectrometer to the forepumps.
• If the workbench has space underneath, place the forepumps under the workbench
immediately behind the mass spectrometer. Either run the vacuum hose behind the
workbench or make a 6.4 cm (2.5 in.) diameter hole through the bench for the vacuum
hose. Allow for room to run the power cords from the forepumps through the hole.
• If the workbench has no space under it, place the forepumps at the end of the workbench.
CAUTION Trip hazard. Whenever possible, provide space under the workbench for the
forepumps. If placed in front of the mass spectrometer, the forepumps become a trip
hazard.
CAUTION
• Do not place the forepump on a shelf or other surface connected to the workbench.
Vibration from the pump can affect system performance.
• The exhaust hose tubing acts as a trap for exhaust fumes that would otherwise
recondense in the forepump oil.
–
To maintain forepump integrity, route the exhaust tubing from the exhaust port
down to the floor, not from the forepump vertically toward the ceiling.
–
Run the exhaust hose at floor level for a minimum of 2 m (79 in.) before it
reaches the external exhaust system.
Telephone
Make sure all of the laboratory staff have access to a telephone (landline or mobile) in the lab
near the system so that, if necessary, you can operate the mass spectrometer while speaking
with Thermo Fisher Scientific Technical Support. For a landline connection, make sure that
the telephone jack is within 1.8 m (6 ft) of the mass spectrometer.

• Cleaning: Use a small, high-intensity lamp
Vibration
Choose a lab location that is vibration-free.
Humidity
Maintain the relative humidity in the designated lab at 40–80 percent, without condensation.
Operating a Thermo Scientific mass spectrometer in an environment with very low humidity
can cause the accumulation and discharge of static electricity that can shorten the life of the
electronic components. Operating the mass spectrometer in an environment with high
humidity can cause condensation, oxidation, and short electronic circuits. It can also cause the
accumulation of dust that can block filters on cooling fans.
To ensure that the lab is always within the required temperature and humidity specifications,
Thermo Fisher Scientific recommends that you install a temperature and humidity monitor in
the lab.
Temperature
For precision instruments, such as a Thermo Scientific mass spectrometer, maintain the lab
temperature at 15–27 °C (59–81 °F). For optimum performance, maintain the lab
temperature at 18–21 °C (65–70 °F). Temperature control is vital to acquiring accurate mass
measurements. Therefore, make sure that during any one-hour period, ambient temperature
fluctuations are less than 1 °C or 2 °F.
IMPORTANT
• All electronic components generate heat while operating. This heat must dissipate to
the surrounding air for the components to continue to operate reliably.
• Do not locate the instrument under an air duct, near windows, or near heating and
cooling sources. As the lab temperature increases, the LC/MS system reliability
decreases.
There must be good air flow around the system, and the air conditioning system must
maintain a constant temperature in the immediate vicinity of the instrument. Table 5 lists the
approximate heat output (power) for the system. For the heat output of your specific LC
devices and the data system components, refer to the instrument manuals.

Particulate Matter
Make sure that the air in the lab is free from excessive dust, smoke, or other particulate matter
in excess of 5 μm—that is, fewer than 3 500 000 particles per cubic meter (100 000 particles
per cubic foot).
Dust can clog the air filters, causing a reduction in air flow around electronic components.
Dust on electronic components can act as an insulating blanket, which reduces the transfer of
heat from the components to the surrounding air.
Electrostatic Discharge
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage the electronic components of the TSQ Endura or
TSQ Quantiva mass spectrometer.
Most Thermo Scientific instruments are designed to withstand ESD up to 4 kV (air
discharge) and 4 kV (contact discharge) with all panels in place. However, removing the
panels and handling the printed circuit boards (PCBs) without proper precautions might
damage the electrical components or cause them to fail prematurely.
Because of ESD, Thermo Fisher Scientific recommends the following precautions, especially
when operating the system at the lower end of the relative humidity specification:
• Use a static-dissipating floor covering (such as tile or conductive linoleum) in the lab.
• Use laboratory chairs covered with natural fibers or other static-dissipating material.
• Wear a laboratory coat and clothing made of natural fiber or other static-dissipating
material when operating the instrument.
• Keep Styrofoam™ cups or packing materials away from the instrument.

Lighting
Good lighting makes any work area more enjoyable. Thermo Fisher Scientific recommends
that you use a small, high-intensity lamp when cleaning the mass spectrometer components.
Vibration
Select a lab location that is free from vibration—floors at ground level usually have less
vibration. When selecting the location, be aware of adjacent rooms with equipment that could
transmit vibrations through the floor to the mass spectrometer workbench.
Because of the natural vibration of the forepump during operation, install the forepump on
the floor under the mass spectrometer.

Line Power
You are responsible for providing a power source of acceptable quality to operate the system.
The quality of line power (ac mains power system) delivered to the TSQ Endura or
TSQ Quantiva system can affect its performance and longevity. To ensure that the system
performs optimally and is not damaged by line power fluctuations, verify that the lab’s
electrical supply complies with all power quality requirements.
CAUTION To support compliance and safety requirements, all devices connected between
the power source and the mass spectrometer must be certified by recognized organizations
for your country or territory (for example, UL, CSA, SEMKO, VDE, or TÜV).
Such devices include the power supply cords, electrical outlets, circuit breakers,
uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs), and so on.

Line Power
Quality of Power
Quality of Power
Establishing the quality of power supplied to the LC/MS system is very important for these
reasons:
• Constant high line voltage, impulses, or surges in voltage can cause overheating and
component failures.
• Constant low line voltage or sags in voltage can cause the system to function erratically or
not at all.
• Transients—even a few microseconds in duration—can cause electronic devices to
degrade or fail catastrophically, shortening the lifetime of the system.
Before the service engineer arrives to install your system, make sure the line voltage is stable
and within the recommended specifications. The line voltage must be free of fluctuations due
to slow changes in the average sags, surges, transients, or voltage. For the mass spectrometer’s
electrical ratings, see Table 7 on page 17.
Table 6 lists the definitions for the three most common voltage disturbances.
Table 6. Common voltage disturbances
Voltage disturbance
Definition
Slow average
A gradual, long-term change in average root mean square
(RMS) voltage level, with typical durations greater than 2 s
Sags and surges
Sudden changes in average RMS voltage level, with typical
durations between 50 ms and 2 s
Transients or impulses
A brief voltage spike of up to several thousand volts, with
typical durations up to 50 μs
Power Monitoring Devices
Several devices are available to monitor the quality of the line power. These devices provide a
continuous record of line performance by analyzing and printing out data for the three most
common voltage disturbances (see Table 6).
In the first two cases, the time interval recording indicates the duration and the amplitude of
the disturbance. A power line disturbance analyzer detects and records most types of line
power problems. The Dranetz™ system1 is an example of a suitable analyzer. In some
countries, you can rent power line analyzers from electrical equipment suppliers.

than its own. Companies and products listed in this guide are given as examples only.
TSQ Endura and TSQ Quantiva Preinstallation Requirements Guide
Thermo Scientific
4 Line Power
Power Conditioning Devices
Monitor the power line 24 hours a day for seven consecutive days. If inspection of the
printout indicates disturbances, stop the test and take corrective action. Monitor the power
again as previously described.
Power Conditioning Devices
You can correct a line voltage problem by using various line voltage conditioning devices. If
the power regulation is good but the power line disturbance analyzer shows transient voltages,
an isolation/noise-suppression transformer can resolve the problem. For both transient and
regulation problems, consider the use of power conditioners to control these problems. See
the CAUTION statement on page 13.
CAUTION Any conditioning devices installed with the system must be able to handle the
potentially high currents that are drawn during the initial startup of the system. For
example, during startup, the forepump or forepumps can draw a high inrush current.
Because the TSQ Endura and TSQ Quantiva mass spectrometers require the use of one or
two forepumps, the system draws an inrush current. The maximum inrush (start) current
for one forepump (Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum™, model SOGEVAC™ SV 65 BI) is 12 A.
The average duration of the forepump’s inrush current is less than 1 s. Therefore, this
initial energy demand from the ac power line is very low.
Thermo Scientific systems are protected from overcurrents with time-delay fuses and
active switches. For more information, contact your Thermo Fisher Scientific service
engineer.
When the line voltage is free from voltage sags, surges, and impulses but is more than
10 percent outside of the voltage specifications, a buck/boost transformer can lower (buck
10 percent) or raise (boost 10 percent) the line voltage as appropriate for the rated voltage.
Order the Buck/Boost Transformer Kit (P/N OPTON-01460) from Thermo Fisher Scientific
San Jose. Each buck/boost transformer is encased in a metal housing approximately
13  13  26 cm (5  5  10 in.) and ships with a 2 m (6.5 ft) power supply cable. Have a
certified electrician install the transformer, using the installation instructions that are
included. Then, install the TSQ Endura or TSQ Quantiva system.
CAUTION Systems installed in areas with 208 Vac power can experience voltage sags
during high use periods that might place the line voltage below the operating parameters
discussed in this section. In this case, protect the system by using a buck/boost
transformer to ensure that power stays within the specified parameters.
Uninterruptible Power Supply
If your local area is susceptible to corrupted power or power disruptions, install an
uninterruptible power supply (UPS) in the lab. See the Caution on page 13.

Line Power
Circuit Breakers
Circuit Breakers
Make sure that each circuit breaker is suitably rated so that the equipment connected to the
electrical outlets does not lose power by triggering a current overload condition. For added
protection, install a surge protector at the input to the circuit breaker panel.
Earth Ground
Make sure that the earth ground connections in the lab are hardwired to the same ground
used for the main circuit breaker panel. Multiple external ground points can cause noise
current to flow through the ground loop that is formed.
Electrical Outlets
Installing a complete TSQ Endura or TSQ Quantiva system can require extensive electrical
resources for connecting all of the equipment. Plan the power system properly, with a
sufficient number of grounded, electrical outlets that are suitably rated. In addition, Thermo
Fisher Scientific recommends having several additional outlets close to the work area for
testing and cleaning equipment, such as an oscilloscope and a sonicator.
CAUTION To avoid an electric shock, always have a certified electrician install any new
wall receptacles.
Table 7 lists the electrical ratings (labels) and required number of outlets for the modules in a
typical lab setup. For the LC modules, refer to the manufacturer's manuals. To prevent
overloading the outlets, select outlets with a load rating that is suitable for the expected total
current draw per outlet.
IMPORTANT
• Thermo Fisher Scientific recommends that you connect the mass spectrometer and
each forepump to separate electrical outlets that have their own dedicated
single-phase, circuit breakers rated 230 Vac, 15 A for North America and 230 Vac,
16 A for other countries and territories. For example, the TSQ Quantiva system
requires three separate, dedicated electrical outlets (one for the instrument and two
for the forepumps). See also Figure 2.
• In North America, the LC/MS system requires both 120 and 230 Vac single-phase
electrical outlets.

CAUTION
• Contaminants introduced during the installation of house lines used for gas delivery
can cause damage to the mass spectrometer. Make sure that all gas lines used with the
instrument have been cleaned of all particulates and oils. You are responsible for any
damage to the instrument caused by contaminants introduced from your gas delivery
system.
• Because particulate filters can be a source of contamination, Thermo Fisher Scientific
does not recommend their use.
Argon Supply
To dispense UHP argon from a tank (such as one containing 245 ft3 of argon), use a
Matheson™ 3120 Series1 regulator (or equivalent tank and regulator). Particulate filters are
not recommended because they can be a source of contamination. Use either stainless steel
tubing or the provided copper tubing for the argon gas line, and make sure that it is free of oil
and preferably flame dried. Terminate the argon gas supply lines with 1/8 in., female,
Swagelok™-type connectors.
Note After you start using the mass spectrometer, do not shut off the argon gas.
Optimum performance requires a continuous flow of argon.
Nitrogen Supply
You must provide a regulator for the nitrogen gas supply that you can adjust over the specified
pressure range. Thermo Fisher Scientific recommends one of the following sources for the HP
nitrogen supply:
• A large, sealed, thermally insulated cylinder containing liquid nitrogen from which the
nitrogen gas is boiled off. Because the 35 psi (240 kPa) and 80 psi (550 kPa) models do
not provide sufficient gas pressure, Thermo Fisher Scientific recommends a 230 psi
(1590 kPa) model. A typical 240 L cylinder yields 143 850 L (5080 ft3) of gas. Replace
the cylinder approximately once every month.
• A nitrogen generator that can generate up to 5560 L (200 ft3) per day at 99% purity with
100 psi (689 kPa) at the side panel. Maximum consumption of nitrogen gas is 21 L/min
(40 ft3/h). Nitrogen generators require an air compressor. Because some models of air
compressors are quite noisy, be careful to select a quiet compressor. A generator is a
continuous source, with no replacement required.

Solvent Recommendation
Note Liquid nitrogen conversion factors:
• 1.0 lb of liquid nitrogen = 0.5612 L
• 1.0 kg of liquid nitrogen = 1.237 L
Terminate the nitrogen gas supply line with a quick-connect connector. Because particulate
filters can be a source of contamination, Thermo Fisher Scientific does not recommend their
use.
CAUTION When you turn on the system, the initial nitrogen surge might exceed the
capacity of the nitrogen generator. This sudden surge causes a flow rate drop that can
trigger a low nitrogen warning from the mass spectrometer. If low nitrogen warnings
happen frequently, call your Thermo Fisher Scientific service engineer.
Solvent Recommendation
As specified in Table 9, use only LC/MS-grade solvents and reagents for operating and
maintaining the TSQ Endura or TSQ Quantiva system. Installation of the instrument
requires LC/MS-grade methanol and water. Installation of some systems might also require
solvent modifiers.
CAUTION Avoid exposure to potentially harmful materials.
By law, producers and suppliers of chemical compounds are required to provide their
customers with the most current health and safety information in the form of Material
Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) or Safety Data Sheets (SDSs). The MSDSs and SDSs must
be freely available to lab personnel to examine at any time. These data sheets describe the
chemicals and summarize information on the hazard and toxicity of specific chemical
compounds. They also provide information on the proper handling of compounds, first
aid for accidental exposure, and procedures to remedy spills or leaks.
Read the MSDS or SDS for each chemical you use. Store and handle all chemicals in
accordance with standard safety procedures. Always wear protective gloves and safety
glasses when you use solvents or corrosives. Also, contain waste streams, use proper
ventilation, and dispose of all laboratory reagents according to the directions in the MSDS
or SDS.

HPLC-grade solvents might contain contaminants that interfere with the
performance of the mass spectrometer. To operate the mass spectrometer, choose
HPLC solvents with minimum contamination.
• Do not filter solvents. Filtering solvents can introduce contamination.

Waste and Exhaust
You are responsible for providing the proper waste and exhaust systems that are required to
operate the TSQ Endura or TSQ Quantiva system.The waste and exhaust arrangements can
affect the proper performance of the system. You must vent vacuum and solvent wastes
separately, and collect and dispose of wastes properly.
For information about setting up the exhaust and waste systems, refer to the TSQ Endura and
TSQ Quantiva Getting Connected Guide.

• Solvent Waste
Exhaust System
To properly operate one or both forepumps, Thermo Fisher Scientific strongly recommends
connecting the forepump to an efficient fume exhaust system. The forepump eventually
exhausts much of what is introduced into the mass spectrometer, including the small amount
of oil vapor that a mechanical pump can emit.
Note Most API applications contribute to solvents accumulating in the forepump.
Although Thermo Fisher Scientific recommends that you periodically open the ballast
valve (on the side of the pump) to purge the accumulated solvents, opening the valve
might allow a large volume of volatile solvent waste to enter the fume exhaust system.
Choose an exhaust system that can accommodate the periodic purging of these solvents.
The frequency of the purging depends on the throughput of the system.
The forepump requires one 15 mm (0.6 in.) OD exhaust port. The exhaust system for the
forepump must be able to accommodate an initial inrush flow rate of 3 L/min (6.4 ft3/hr) and
a continuous flow rate of 1 L/min (2 ft3/hr). The exhaust tubing from the forepump to the
exhaust system is 0.5 in. ID, 3/4 in. OD, and 3 m (10 ft) long.

Waste and Exhaust
Solvent Waste
IMPORTANT The port for the lab exhaust system must be close enough to the forepump
or forepumps so that the exhaust hose is at floor level for a minimum of 2 m (78.7 in.).
This hose acts as a trap for exhaust fumes that would otherwise recondense in the
forepump oil.
Equip your lab with at least two fume exhaust systems:
• The analyzer optics become contaminated if the drain/waste tubing and the exhaust
tubing from the forepump connect to the same fume exhaust system. Route the exhaust
tubing from the forepump to a dedicated fume exhaust system.
CAUTION Do NOT run the forepump exhaust lines vertically near the forepump.
Solvents and oils can condense in the line and flow back into the pump, causing
pump damage, and diminished pump capability.
• Do not vent the Tygon™ drain tube (or any vent tubing connected to the waste container)
to the same fume exhaust system that connects to the forepump. Vent the waste container
to a dedicated fume exhaust system. The exhaust system for the API source must
accommodate a flow rate of up to 30 L/min (64 ft3/h).
Solvent Waste
The mass spectrometer comes with parts to collect the solvent waste from the API source.
Because the API source can accommodate high flow rates, you must use a method of
collecting the waste solvent that avoids pressure buildup in the source. The solvent
drain/waste exhaust port is located on the left side of the instrument.
IMPORTANT The solvent waste tubing that connects from the waste container to the
exhaust system is 1 in. ID, 1-3/8 in. OD. Make sure that your lab exhaust system can
accommodate this tubing without using reducing connectors along the solvent waste path.
Use these guidelines for the API source drain:
• Use the Tygon tubing provided with the solvent waste container to connect the solvent
waste container to the lab’s fume exhaust system.
• To prevent solvent waste from backing up into the mass spectrometer, make sure that all
Tygon tubing is above the level of liquid in the waste container as follows:
–
From the mass spectrometer to the solvent waste container
–
From the solvent waste container to the exhaust system

Filing a Damage Claim Against the Carrier
 To record damages on the receiving documents
1. Read the information in Filing a Damage Claim Against the Carrier to determine which
parties might be responsible for filing a claim against the carrier.
2. On all copies of the receiving documents, note any apparent external damage and briefly
describe the extent of the damage.
3. Have the driver sign or initial next to your comments to signify agreement with your
observations.
4. Report the list of damages to your Thermo Fisher Scientific representative.
IMPORTANT Freight insurance requires that you note obvious damage on the
receiving documents. Thermo Fisher Scientific does not accept liability for damage if
materials are received with obvious damage AND the damage is not recorded on the
receiving documents.
Filing a Damage Claim Against the Carrier
If the instrument is damaged in transit, the shipment method determines the party who
assumes the risk of damage and files a claim against the carrier—Thermo Fisher Scientific or
the purchaser. To determine the shipment method for instruments shipped from the San Jose,
CA site, check the sales agreement or the sales quote.
Table 10 lists the party who files the damage claim against the carrier for instruments
damaged in transit based on the shipment method.
