Filter gas purifier
AGC Instruments Ltd.
The new automated 19 Rack Carrier Gas Purifier from AGC Instruments provides a dependent supply of high purity gas. It is one of two configurations available for easy integration into a new or existing set-up to work in tandem with numerous applications. The new rack configuration links seamlessly with the new NovaCHROM Gas Chromatograph and TrendVision PLUS Chromatography Software unit for a comprehensive gas analysis rack system.
It supplies the essential high purity gas supply which is necessary to run sensitive Ionisation Detectors such as the AGC Discharge Ionisation Detector (DID) and the AGC Argon Discharge Detector (ADD). These two detectors require pure Helium and pure Argon respectively and by having a low ppb impurity level in carrier and detector gases, longer instrument life spans and better sensitivities are achieved, thus saving companies both time and money.
The AGC Purifier is based on heating purifying pellets which have been coated with a thin oxide layer. When these pellets are heated, impurities in the gas stream passed over them are trapped. By continuously diffusing the impurities into the purifying material, a fresh reactive surface is maintained. This reaction will ensure that the output gas is produced at least 2 grades better than the input gas.
