Installation Q Trap LC/MS/MS TurboIonSpray Ion Source Manual

Installation

The TurboIonSpray source connects to the vacuum interface housing. Two latches mounted on the source housing secure the TurboIonSpray against the vacuum interface.

WARNING! Some surfaces on the TurboIonSpray source will become hot during operation. Use caution when installing or removing the source.

To install the TurboIonSpray on the Q Trap instrument

1. Ensure that the two source latches are in the unlocked (up) position.

2. Align the two guide pins on the source with the vacuum interface receptacles.

Guide pin alignment

3. Slide the source along the guide pins towards the interface as far as it can go without using excessive force.

4. Turn the two source latches to the locked (down) position.

5. The TurboIonSpray nebulizer and heater gas (Gas 1 and Gas 2), the sprayer high voltage and heater connectors are automatically engaged once the source is locked in position.

6. Connect the liquid sample tubing to the grounded fitting which is connected to the inlet end of the sprayer probe. Ensure that all fittings are properly seated in order to minimize dead volumes.

Note: In order to reduce the band broadening of sample with solvent, thus maximizing sensitivity, the use of 0.005" ID PEEK or fused silica tubing between the TurboIonSpray source and the injector is recommended.

To remove the TurboIonSpray from the API instrument

WARNING! The ion source may be hot for several minutes after it is removed from the instrument.
