400-M-060 - Extended Range Small FCO System

The 400-M-030 – Extended Range Large 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.


The Extended Range model places a steady state temperature profile on the Inlet heaters covering the first half of the analytical column, just like in the Standard FCO. Column temperature programming of the Outlet half of the analytical drives off higher boiling compounds, once the lower boiling compounds have eluted.

Operating in the Standard mode the Extended Run FCO performs the fastest runs, with the extra benefit of temperatures starting as low as 20 C. In the 2nd option, the Outlet heaters covering the second half of the column include temperature programming to drive more compounds off the column. In the 3rd option, the column is positioned entirely in the Outlet half of the Extended Run FCO functioning just like the Classic FCO. There is always a heating and cooling cycle when temperature programming, but it is still faster than a conventional GC oven. Including all the benefits of the FCO peak sharpening technology. The FCO-Extended Run is the most versatile FCO in the family.
