Our Gasless Educational Gas Chromatograph (GC) system is ideal for undergraduate chemistry classes where the principles of gas chromatography are demonstrated on the same equipement students will encounter in industry. The Gasless Educational GC includes a built-in “whisper quiet” air compressor and a CCD detector. The CCD detects combustible (hydrocarbon) molecules, and it operates on air carrier gas from the air compressor.
This GC is perfect for teaching situations where compressed gas cylinders cannot be used due to safety considerations or budgetary limitations. Because it operates on its own infinite supply of room air, the Gasless GC may be used to peform demonstrations in the classroom, instead of the lab. Most conventional GCs require helium gas. Compared to the ongoing cost of cylinder rental, storage, and gas consumption, operation of the Gasless Educational GC is essentially free, except for the minimal cost of electricity.
This chromatogram shows a separation of 1uL of 100ppm methanol in acetone using a standard Gas-less Educational GC at 130°C.
The Gas-less Educational GC system is equipped with a built-in, single channel PeakSimple data system, which provides powerful yet easy data acquisition, as well as temperature programming for the column oven. Fast cool-down fans automatically cool the column oven at the end of the analysis from 250°C to 50°C in less than five minutes.
