Gas purification is critical to GC performance. Several types of contaminants are detrimental - notably moisture, hydrocarbons, and oxygen. VICI Metronics gas purifier modules are designed to be placed in-line with the GC carrier or detector gas supply to remove these contaminants from the analytical gases prior to their entering the GC.
Original equipment in the Agilient® Mass Spec and LC Mass Spec, VICI Metronics gas purifiers dramatically reduce contaminant levels and absorb a greater variety of contaminants than other gas purification products. Purification is optimized with a multiple bed format. Each bed functions at a lower contaminant concentration, resulting in a series of contaminant concentration gradients across the length of the gas purifier.
