The SRI PCB GC System has everything you need to detect PCBs in soil and other solid matrices. The Thermal Desorber accessory permits the user to inject and analyze PCBs with high sensitivity and little or no sample preparation—no solvent extraction is required! Up to one gram of soil or another solid matrix can be loaded into the re-usable glass desorption tubes.
The FID detector responds to all hydrocarbons and the DELCD identifies which are chlorinated or brominated. The PCB GC is also useful for detecting pesticides PAHs JP-4 kerosene and diesel in soil. Because soil samples are typically 20-50% water the unique design of the SRI FID automatically relights the flame after a large water peak. The 30-meter capillary column efficiently separates hydrocarbons up to C40+. The built-in “whisper quiet” air compressor provides air for the detectors and if used with the H2-50 hydrogen generator no cylinders are required.
