400-M-040 – Classic Small FCO System (CSFS) – Small Frame FCO, Control Module, Software

400-M-040 - Classic Small FCO System

The 400-M-040 – Classic Small FCO System is a complete system to upgrade your GC to a Fast GC. The Large 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.

Temperature Programming Plus

The Classic model combines two powerful technologies; traditional temperature programming and the FCO gradient peak sharpening technology. The entire column is temperature programmable and cooled down between runs with the solid state Chiller. Throughout the entire temperature program the FCO places a slightly negative gradient on the analytical column. The gradient forces the compounds to stay in contact with the liquid phase longer, which sharpens the compound release point from the column. Even the highest resolution columns can benefit from this enhanced FCO technology. The Classic FCO is for all Applications!

The Classic FCO only operates when connecting it to the Control Module. Installing the FCO is simple in most GC or GC/MS systems.
