NotesThe particle size distribution of DiatoSorb material is more uniform than that of commercially available diatomaceous earth material. For this application, the pressure required to achieve a flow rate of 40 mL/min He (@ 100 °C) on a diatomaceous earth packed column is 50 psi, whereas it is only 33.7 psi on a DiatoSorb packed column. Furthermore, the narrower particle size distribution of the DiatoSorb material results in highly efficient columns.
