Quantify Active Analytes with Confidence

Increase your GC operating time without missing a peak!

The increasing need for high-sensitivity analyses of harmful substances is placing new challenges on GC methods of tailing peaks, loss of compounds, low limit of detection, reproducibility, signal noise, carry over effect.

Agilent’s Inert Flow Path solutions let you address these challenges head-on. So, you can get the right answers the first time itself.

Agilent Inert Flow Path Solutions

Gas Clean filter

Installing an Agilent Gas Clean filter removes contaminants, ensuring that the highest-quality gas flows - leak free -  through the system. The benefits to you include flow path inertness and column integrity. Highly sensitive indicators provide maximum instrument protection

Gas Clean filter

Ultra Inert Inlet Liners

Agilent Ultra Inert inlet liners, with or without glass wool, are certified to provide low surface activity and highly reproducible sample vaporization. They facilitate best-in-class delivery for active analytes.

Inert Flow Path Split/Splitless Inlet

Portions of the split/splitless inlet that come in contact with the sample undergo the same proprietary deactivation treatment as Ultra Inert gold seals and UltiMetal flexible ferrules. The result: a continuous inert surface throughout the flow path.

Ultra Inert Gold Seals

Ultra Inert chemistry on top of gold plating reduces active analyte adsorption while ensuring a leak-free seal.

Ultra Inert Gold Seals

UltiMetal and Gold-Plated Flexible Metal ferrules

Agilent UltiMetal Plus Flexible Metal ferrules are the only ferrules with a deactivated surface that maintains the inertness of the GC flow path. Agilent gold-plated Flexible Metal ferrules are recommended for CFT connections.

UltiMetal

Inert capillary flow technology (CFT)

Inert CFT provides increased GC system flexibility while making reliable, leak-free, capillary connections. Flow splitters and Deans switches enable multiple detectors, peak cutting, and multidimensional GC analysis for increased resolution of trace compounds in complex matrices.

Ultra Inert GC Column

GC column inertness is critical as columns contribute toward the largest surface area within the flow path. Every Agilent J&W Ultra Inert GC column is rigorously tested to ensure consistently high inertness and low bleed, for optimal delivery of analytes to the detector.

Agilent J&W Column Smart Key

Smart ID keys provide information on column, configuration, age, number of injections, use, and temperature limits.

Self-Tightening Column Nut

The innovative spring-driven piston continuously presses against the ferrule, maintaining a leak-free seal—critical to the integrity of the GC flow path.

FID/NPD Detector Jets

Universally fit all GC platforms, and both capillary column and packed column detector body.

Inert Ion Source

An inert ion source ensures the integrity of your analytes reaching the detector.

IDP-3 Oil-Free Vacuum Pump

The IDP-3 oil-free vacuum pump is not part of the GC flow path. However, it ensures reliable MS detector performance—critical for accurate, reproducible results. Agilent IDP-3 pumps are oil-free, providing a quieter and cleaner laboratory environment compared to standard oil rotary vane pumps.
