System GC for Impurities in Chlorine Gas

Chlorine is a widely used component in a variety of industrial and manufacturing processes, ranging from industrial gases to disinfectants to common polymers such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC). As such, manufacturers and consumers use gas chromatography to assess the quality of their chlorine gas to ensure product quality. During production and capture, trace to major amounts of hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, methane, and carbon dioxide may be incorporated into the bulk chlorine. A major challenge to analysis of chlorine gas is the corrosive nature of chlorine, which is a strong oxidizer and will corrode system components. This gas chromatograph is constructed of corrosion resistant alloys or otherwise treated to minimize degradation.

This turnkey analyzer is available on both the GC-2014 and GC-8 platforms. The solid metal chassis of these GC models increases the longevity of the unit in harsh environmental conditions. A single TCD is used to quantify the fixed gases in the chlorine gas.
