Metal Capillary Columns

Our favorite choice for a Fast GC System is combining a durable metal capillary column with a Small FCO. Metal capillary columns offer many benefits over fused silica capillary columns, making them worth taking a closer look at. When you purchase a column with a FCO, or FCO System, we are happy to waive the coiling fee. However, when coiling a customer column, we charge an extra fee. Please contact us to help configuring just the right system for you. There are so many choices, sometimes it is better just to talk with someone.

Metal Capillary Column Features

  • Higher Temperatures – Metal columns are stable up to 430 C, but fused silica is limited to 360 C.
  • Inertness – The coating fuses into the metal making the inertness similar to fused silica.
  • Coating efficiency – The theoretical plates are similar for metal and fused silica.
  • Coiling – A Small FCO accepts every column ID. Even a 0.53 mm only has a 10 cm diameter. A 0.53 fused silica would break and needs a Large FCO.
  • Durability – Metal columns are virtually unbreakable and can withstand higher temperature ramping.
  • Connections – The column ends exiting the FCO and injector and detector connections are less brittle and more robust.
