This filter is packed under argon to maintain quality. Follow the installation instructions carefully to purge the argon from the filters before use.  

The Super Clean gas trapping system purifies nitrogen and is ideal for use in LC-MS systems. The two-position baseplate (installed in the gas line; standard baseplate inlet/outlet fittings accept 1/4" tubing) allows cartridges to be exchanged without introducing impurities into the system. Spring-loaded check valves seal when a cartridge is removed and open only when a new cartridge has been locked in place. There is no need for loosening and tightening fittings every time you change cartridges, and your system cannot become contaminated during the changing process.

To meet the high flow needs of the LC-MS system, the activated charcoal–filled cartridges are positioned and connected in parallel. The incoming gas stream is split equally between the cartridges, and the two streams are rejoined after purification but before the gas exits the baseplate. This approach allows longer contact between the nitrogen and the adsorbent, ensuring higher gas purity and eliminating a potential source of contaminants to your analyses.

A handy date wheel, included with the system, indicates the cartridge installation date and the recommended replacement date.
