Application Note: Natural Gas Analysis: A Simplified Approach for the Analysis of Permanent Gases and Hydrocarbons in Natural Gas by Capillary Chromatography and Deans Switch
28 November 2012

In this application note a method is described for the analysis of permanent gases and hydrocarbons using Agilent Micro-fluidics Capillary Flow Technology (CFT). This method has simplified method development and reduced the cost associated with this type of analyzer when compared to using switching values and packed columns for the analysis of natural gas samples. Capillary columns and CFT allow for improved resolution, more commonly available parts, and allow for increased speed of analysis over packed column methods.
