5 Air Bath (1 or 2 temp sections/zones) The Most Versatile Analytical Oven that Meets All GC Application RequirementsAirless (1 or 2 ovens)Air Bath (1 or 2 temp sections/zones)
6 Why the 2 Oven Type, 4 Configuration Choice Airless (Space Heater)One or two Independent oven with separate doors. Independent maintenanceSpace heater does not need instru air. Especially suitable for remote locations. Save upto 500 Euro per GC each year on power & air utilitiesHigher maximum operating temperature beyond 200 deg C and effective thermal efficiency. Oven can also be used for high temp sampling systemAir bath (Air Bath Heater)Upto two separate temp section/zone through thermal isolation in one large compartmentAir bath heater provides fast warm up and stabilization time. Permits programmed temperature or sub-ambient operation with vortex cooling configurationLarge, spacious compartment for complex applications and easy maintenanceProgrammed TemperatureSingle AirlessDual AirlessSingle Air BathSplit Air Bath
7 The Widest Choice and Largest Quantity of Detectors per GC A total of 7 different technologies in detector modules4- and 8-cell Thermal Conductivity with thermistors (max 24 TCDs for % measurement)2-cell Thermal Conductivity with filamentsFlame Ionization or Flame Ionization with Filament TCD (Max 3 FIDs for ppm HC measurement and TCDs for % measurement)Flame Photometric (Max 3 FPDs for low sulphur measurement)Electron CaptureHelium IonizationElectrolytic ConductivityEach Maxum Ed II can effectively replace the job of upto 5 traditional GCs without operation compromise. The cost saving in GC shelters and accessories is upto 70% of total analyzer system cost!
8 The Benefits of More Detectors - Parallel Chromatography More detectors allow more applications per ovenCritical/control service can be measured in unprecedent fast cycle timeCritical/control service can also have redundant application including oven in one GCComplex analyzer can be replaced by Maxum Ed II because of faster analysis time and more components measured eg Mass SpectrometerSRColumn 1Column 212109834576Carrier In from EPCSampleOutInSSODetector VentsFixed RestrictorTraditional Serial ChromatographyMaxum Parallel Chromatography
9 The Benefits of More Detectors – Inter-column Detectors, The Siemens Standard Feature! Adequate detectors ensure that Inter-column detectors are always considered.Traditionally, detectors take-up oven space, micro-processor power, and incur cost. Therefore, GC vendors do omit inter-column detectors to cut cost.In a typical GC application, the first column provide coarse separation of the sample. Then the sample is switched to various columns for further specific fine separation. The switching is basically determined by time.Inter-column detectors eliminate time consuming and tedious guess work when deciding oven flow path switching timing between columns. This happens whenever the columns aged or are replaced.
10 The Benefits of More Detectors - Power Made Simple More detectors allow more applications per ovenTwo or more streams can be analyzed in parallel instead of stream switching. Therefore all streams results are updated in each cycle of analysis.There are enough detectors to standardised and simplify chromatography application methodsApplications are broken down into simple standardised sub-applications called Applets.Applets reduces cost by reducing complexity in user understanding, training and maintenance.Stream 1Stream 2Stream 3
11 Industry Leader in Oven Switching Valve Choice and Reliability Extremely high reliability and long life diaphragm valves10-port Plunger-less diaphragm vapor sample valveProven MTBF 10 years.6-port Diaphragm-plunger high pressure vapor or liquid sample valveProven MTBF 6 yearsVaporising liquid injection valvePrecision sample size control and fast, clean injectionIdeally suited for liquid chemical analysisValveless, Live column switchingEssentially zero dead volume, precise sample size for fast column switching and sample injection with capillary columnsNo parts to fail or wear out
12 The Winner in Electronics Power & Processing Speed Upto 4 32-bit 486 electronic processors with internal serial signal distribution1 x bit Dedicated System Controller for communications, human interface and database managementUpto 3 x bit Dedicated Sensor Controllers for detector data acquisition; independent controllers for each detector module.Plug and Play technologyTCP/IP platform
13 Carrier Gas Pressure Control is a Standard Not an Option! Upto 8-channel Electronic Pressure ControlAbsolute digital control of carrier gas pressures. No more tedious flow adjustment on site start-up and routine maintenance.The GC oven always involves various carrier gas flow paths to different analysis columns. The source carrier gas pressure therefore varies because different columns have different length and separation time.Traditionally, needle valves are used as restrictors to vary the source carrier gas pressure. These needle valves always creep during transportation and overtime requiring frequent tedious flow adjustment maintenance.
