Refurbished HP 5890 Gas Chromatography


HP 5890 Gas Chromatograph

Are you’re looking for a very cost effective and robust refurbished gas chromatograph? Laboratories around the world define the HP 5890 GC as the unconditional standard for Gas Chromatography. From the original production of the 5890A to the ground breaking introduction of Electronic Pressure Control for the 5890-II, HP's superior manufacturing and design has set the highest standards for Gas Chromatography. Each purchase is backed by our exclusive AIM warranty. Request a quote today.



The 5890 is more than a just a highlight in Chromatography history - it is an extremely productive and exceedingly reliable supplement to your laboratories arsenal. A refurbished 5890 Gas Chromatograph system may just be the answer to your GC needs.

All of our GC's are custom configured to meet your requirements. We provide GC mainframes, detectors (FID, NPD, ECD, ELCD, PID, TCD, FPD and MSD), injection ports (split-splitless, packed, purged-packed, on-column), accessories (cryogenic cooling, electronic pressure control), communication options (RS-232, HPIB, INET), data systems (ChemStation) and autosamplers (7673 A, 7673 B, Leap CTC).


Refurbished Hewlett Packard 5890 Options

  • FID - Flame Ionization Detector - Is the most commonly used detector in gas chromatography because of its dependability and universal ease of use. It detects practically any organic compounds while generating little to zero signal for common carrier gases.
  • ECD - Electron Capture Detector - produces trace-level detection of halogenated organic compounds and aromatic pollutants
  • TCD - Thermal Conductivity Detector - used for the GC analysis of permanent gases, light hydrocarbons, and compounds that do not respond well to a flame ionization detector (FID)
  • PID - Photo Ionization Detector - selectively responds to aromatic and olefinic hydrocarbons in the presence of alkanes and other saturated hydrocarbons
  • FPD - Flame Photometric Detector - used for sulfur and phosphorus
  • NPD - Nitrogen Phosphorus Detector - specific to nitrogen or phosphorus containing compounds
  • MSD - Mass Selective Detector - measures the mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) of one or more molecules present in a sample. These measurements can be used to calculate the exact molecular weight of the sample components
  • Non Destructive Detectors such as TCD and PID can also be configured in tandem (or in series) with others to provide data from both detectors with a single injection

HP 5890 GC Inlets

  • Split/Splitless Inlet - Most widely-used inlet for gas chromatography
  • Cool On-Column Inlet - Ideal for thermally labile or unstable compounds
  • Purged Packed Inlet - Direct injection onto packed and wide-bore capillary columns

GC Sample Delivery - Autosamplers

  • Hewlett Packard - Model G1512A Autosampler Control Module for 6890A
  • Hewlett Packard - Model G1513A Autosampler Injector (7673C Tower for the 6890A GC) for 6890A
  • Hewlett Packard - 7673C Tray (18596C) for 6890A
  • Hewlett Packard - Model 18594B, 7673B Controller for 5890
  • Hewlett Packard - Model 18593B, 7673B Injector for 5890
