Gas Clean Filter System 
Product Description
The Agilent Gas Clean Filter System delivers clean gases, reducing the risks of column damage, sensitivity loss, and instrument downtime. Inserting a Gas Clean Filter System in the gas line immediately before the instrument inlet greatly reduces the level of impurities, thus improving trace analysis. Contaminants entering your GC column will also be reduced, which is critical for high temperature analysis and essential for longer column lifetime.
 
Replacing the filters when they have reached absorption capacity ensures maximum protection of your GC columns and analytical hardware. The sensitive indicators change color, alerting you that the filter needs to be replaced.
 
A Gas Clean Filter System allows you to use 99.996% (4.6) pure helium instead of the more expensive 99.999% (5.0) or 99.9999% (6.0) grade, while still yielding high quality analytical results. The expected cost savings are 30%.

  • Deliver clean gases for accurate analyses
  • Fast, leak-free filter replacement reduces downtime
  • Economical, with immediate payback
  • Highly sensitive filter indicators provide maximum instrument protection
