Varian CP-4900 Micro Gas Chromatograph (Agilent Technologies)

Fast, reliable Answers, precise, cost efficient gas chromatography analysis in seconds.

There are two similar GCs at PEARL.

GCs are equipped with molecular sieve (for detecting H2, O2, N2, CO, CO2 and CH4) and PPQ (for detecting CO2 and C2 – C4 hydrocarbons) channels.

Online and offline gas analysis is possible.
