Practical GC troubleshooting and maintenance HC294 / E03
A logical approach to GC troubleshooting and maintenance is explored in this two day course. Commonly encountered problems and best practices are examined for all major system components including gas handling, inlet system, oven, column and detector. Examination of separation chemistry, interrogation of poor peak shape and retention problems are a fundamentally important part of the course, leading to increased awareness of troubleshooting principles. Practical exercises are fundamental to this course and industry standard equipment will be used to carry out a wide range of laboratory-based tasks.
This course is designed for those relatively new to GC, or for those users of GC systems who want to gain a deeper insight of their instruments. Ideally will follow-on from attendance to the Fundamental GC training course. Some previous knowledge of gas chromatography and basic experience are recommended but not essential.
What you will learn:
- instrument problems: identifying the issues
- developing troubleshooting strategies
- column installation
- inlet maintenance
- inlet and oven parameters
- detector maintenance
- common maintenance schedule operations
- investigative operations
