What is Process Gas Chromatography and How Does it Work?

Chromatography is introduced to us from a very young age; from marker and coffee filter art projects to the simple black ink separation. All of which the pigments wick from the papers are different speeds when dipped into water, showing the various types of pigments. Chromatography is based on this originally when it was first used for the synthetic dye industry in the early 1990s as Chromatography means color measurement.

Join us in this one-hour session while we simply chromatography basics and explanation as to what makes up a process gas chromatograph that is used today. We will dive into:

  • Different types of sample injection methods
  • What and how a separation column works
  • Basic rules of thumbs for best practice
