400-M-002 – Standard Small FCO (FCO-SS)

Small Standard Fluidless Column Oven (FCO-SS)

The 400-M-002 Standard Small FCO is a single oven module upgrading your GC to a Fast GC. The Small FCO is for tightly wound columns, including all narrow bore capillary columns, metal capillary, packed and micro-packed columns. The Small FCO is useful in Lab and Portable GC´s.

Sharpening Peaks

This device functions by placing a steady state temperature profile directly on the analytical column, using a series of Inlet and Outlet heaters. Injecting the sample into the Inlet half of the Analytical Column sharpens the peaks traveling through the column, due to the negative gradient. Sharpening the peaks comes naturally, because the front of the peak is always a little cooler than the back of the peak. The Outlet half of the column also has a negative gradient profile further sharpening the peaks, before passing to the detector. Analyzing many classes of compounds is easy by adjusting the Inlet and Outlet temperature set-points. Once eliminating the typical heating and cooling cycle, the Standard FCO allows one sample to be analyzed immediately after another.

The Standard FCO only operates when connecting it to the Control Module. Installing the Standard FCO is simple in most GC or GC/MS systems. This is the fastest FCO available with retention time stability equal, or better, than a conventional isothermal GC oven.
