Universal GC detector- NEW for Agilent GC 8890
The VICI pulse discharge detector (PDD) is universal and is based on the helium photoionization principle (HID / PID). It is highly sensitive and the sample is not destroyed during detection.
The detector signal of both organic and inorganic compounds is linear over a wide range. “Fixed gases” also deliver a positive signal for the smallest detectable amount in the lower ppb range.
The gas chromatography detector PDD is the ideal replacement for FIDs in areas where the use of hydrogen or an open flame is problematic, such as the petrochemical industry and refineries. By adding noble gases such as argon, krypton or xenon to the helium, the selectivity of the detector for specific aliphatics, aromatics, amines and other compounds can be increased.
The PDD is available in "Plug and Play" versions for the following GC models (using the device's own FID electrometer):
NEW for Agilent GC 8890
Agilent 6890 and 7890
Shimadzu GC14, GC17, 2010 and 2014
Thermo Trace GC
For other GC systems we offer a detector with a separate “stand-alone” electrometer.
