Table I: For specific applications, we recommend using these optimized columns for better method performance. Click on the column name for product specifications and easy online ordering.

Application Column Feature Benefit

ASTM Method D3606

D3606 Application Column Set
Column 1: 6' (1.8 m), 1/8" OD, 2.0 mm ID, Rtx-1; Column 2: 16' (4.9 m), 1/8" OD, 2.0 mm ID, proprietary packing material

Excellent separation of ethanol and benzene.

Reliably meets method requirements.

Refinery Gases

2abc Refinery Gas Column Set

Backflush Column

Optimized three-column set. (Backflush column sold separately.)

Elutes C5 hydrocarbons before C1-C4 hydrocarbons for optimized resolution.

Unsaturated Light Hydrocarbons

n-Octane on Res-Sil C Column

Unique selectivity for unsaturated hydrocarbons.

Excellent resolution of unsaturated light hydrocarbons gives increased data accuracy.

cis-2-Butene and 1,3-Butadiene

OPN on Res-Sil C Column

Optimized selectivity for cis-2-butene and 1,3-butadiene resolution.

Increased data accuracy.

Permanent Gases

ShinCarbon ST Columns
Packed / Micropacked

Optimized selectivity for permanent gas resolution without cryogenic cooling. Preconditioned.

Increases productivity.

Low-Level Sulfurs

Rt-XLSulfur Columns
Packed / Micropacked

Highly inert for ppbv levels of sulfur. Eliminates need for PTFE tubing.

Increased data accuracy for low-level sulfur analysis. Eliminates need for a special GC setup.
