"I have been using these for years and have never had any issues. Extremely reliable and easy to use with excellent inertness."
The inlet seal at the base of the Agilent 5890/6890/7890 GC injection port contacts the sample and must be changed frequently to prevent adsorption of active compounds. In addition, septum fragments and sample residue accumulate on the disk surface, requiring disk replacement.
Use a stainless steel seal for analyses of unreactive compounds. To reduce breakdown and adsorption of active compounds, use a gold-plated seal.
