Analytical Instrument Management offers quality custom configured, refurbished Agilent and HP 6890 Gas Chromatograph Systems. All of our systems are completely refurbished, rigorously tested and guaranteed to meet manufactures specifications. Our customers are supplied with a comprehensive data report detailing the instrument performance prior to shipping.
Agilent GC systems are known for their reliability, ruggedness, and long life. The Agilent 6890 is a state-of-the art gas chromatograph that provides superior performance for all applications. Key to its performance is the use of advanced electronic pneumatic control (EPC) modules and high performance temperature control. Each EPC unit is optimized for its intended use with a specific inlet and detector option. Temperature control of the 6890 oven allows for fast and precise temperature ramping. Overall thermal performance provides optimal chromatography including peak symmetry, retention time repeatability, and retention index accuracy. The combination of precise pneumatic control and accurate temperature control leads to outstanding retention time repeatability, the basis for all chromatographic measurement.
Agilent 6890 Electron Capture Detector (uECD)
• Micro ECD designed for better linearity, sensitivity and reduced susceptibility to contamination
• Nickel plating on the inner surface of the lower cell body to reduce adsorption and degradation of sensitive compounds
• Anode purge to extend cell lifetime
The Agilent 6890 electron capture detector, or ECD, is used for detecting electron-absorbing components (high electronegativity) such as halogenal compounds in the output stream of a gas chromatograph. The ECD uses a radioactive beta particle (electron) emitter in conjunction with a so-called makeup gas flowing through the detector chamber. The electron emitter typically consists of a metal foil holding 10 millicuries (370 MBq) of the radionuclide Nickel 63. Nitrogen is used as makeup gas, because it exhibits low excitation energy, so it is easy to remove an electron from a nitrogen molecule. The electrons emitted from the electron emitter collide with the molecules of the makeup gas, resulting in many more free electrons. The electrons are accelerated towards a positively charged anode, generating a current. There is therefore always a background signal present in the chromatogram. As the sample is carried into the detector by the carrier gas, electron absorbing analyte molecules capture electrons and thereby reduce the current between the collector anode and a cathode. The analyte concentration is thus proportional to the degree of electron capture. ECD detectors are particularly sensitive to halogens, organometallic compounds, nitriles, or nitro compounds.
