Laboratories performing volatile analysis are often met with challenges that impact routine monitoring activities. The effect of increased price and decreased availability of helium continues to drive the need for exploration of alternative carrier gas configurations. Adoption of novel solutions must be balanced with the requirement for easily implemented methods that maintain instrument uptime and sample throughput needs. Various approaches have been attempted to ease the burden of helium shortage including the use of alternate carrier gasses.
In our discussion we will explore alternative carrier gas configurations and compare benefits as well as draw backs specific to volatile compound analysis. Specific emphasis will be placed on results obtained using a novel solution for Helium carrier gas conservation.
- Review basic Purge and Trap technique theory.
- Explore the benefits and drawbacks of using alternative carrier/purge gasses for purge and trap GC/MS volatile analysis.
- Learn more about the instant connect Helium Saver module an innovative solution for conserving the amount of helium used in routine volatile analysis.
