Our 310 Gas-less Educational GC system is ideal for undergraduate chemistry classes where the principles of gas chromatography are demonstrated on the same equipement students will encounter in industry. The Gas-less Educational GC includes a built-in "whisper quiet" air compressor and a CCD detector. The CCD detects combustible (hydrocarbon) molecules, and it operates on air carrier gas from the air compressor.
This GC is perfect for teaching situations where compressed gas cylinders cannot be used due to safety considerations or budgetary limitations. Because it operates on its own infinite supply of room air, the Gas-less GC may be used to peform demonstrations in the classroom, instead of the lab. Most conventional GCs require helium gas. Compared to the ongoing cost of cylinder rental, storage and gas consumption, operation of the Gas-less Educational GC is essentially free, except for the minimal cost of electricity.
The Gas-less Educational GC system is equipped with a built-in, single channel PeakSimple data system, which provides powerful yet easy data acquisition, as well as temperature programming for the column oven. Fast cool-down fans automatically cool the columnoven at the end of the analysis from 250oC to 50oC in less than five minutes.
