When should I recondition my columns? and at what temperature?


Conditioning of the columns should occur during the GC's initial setup, when you have witnessed merging of peaks or sporadic peaks start to appear. Also, note for optimal results run a carrier bypass sample during the conditioning.


Proper Temperatures for Conditioning:

     RCP:  185 -195 °C

         FID:  185 - 195°

         PDD: 250 - 260 °

         TCD: 185 - 195 °











NOTE** For a more detailed step by step column conditioning sequence please view section 3.2 in your user manual.
