Sulfur analyses are traditionally performed using PTFE tubing to improve column inertness. Unfortunately, PTFE tubing is gas permeable, difficult to pack with high efficiency, prone to shrinkage, and has poor thermal stability. The Rt-XLSulfur packed or micropacked column eliminates these problems. The packing material for Rt-XLSulfur columns is extensively deactivated for analysis of low ppbv levels of hydrogen sulfide and methyl mercaptan. It is then treated to achieve effective separation of hydrocarbons from sulfur compounds. The interior wall and the end fittings of the Rt-XLSulfur column are Sulfinert treated, making the column as inert as PTFE. The extra care taken to manufacture this column ensures more accurate analyses of sulfur compounds.
Note: Columns do not include column nuts and ferrules. Optional installation kits can be ordered separately.
