Gas chromatography is a chromatographic technique that can be used
to separate volatile organic compounds. The organic compounds are
separated due to differences in their partitioning behavior between
the mobile gas phase and the stationary phase in the column.
Revolutionary E3 Design Leads the Way to a New
Century of GC Technology
The GC-2010 responds to recent requirement to higher analytical
productivity with efficient analysis by fast speed analysis
and by reduction of loss time. The GC-2010 equips, for fast
speed analysis, the Shimadzu third generation AFC (advanced
flow control) compatible with high pressure and high split
ratio operation, and fast data acquisition at maximum 4ms
(milli-second). The self diagnostics function helps preventive
maintenance work to keep the system at optimum condition at
any time. The results of self-diagnostics are transferred
to the workstation, and can be used for system management
information. Fast analysis and self-diagnostics provides operation
of the GC to its maximum performance.
To respond any requirements coming from where a gas chromatograph
shall be used, such as quality control section or research section,
petrochemical, food, pharmaceutical..., the GC-2010 has stable performance
and miscellaneous functions including GLP/GMP support.
The GC-2010 equips a large LCD display (Gwindow). The Gwindow displays
the status of the gas chromatograph for quick monitoring, as well
as chromatogram. The easy to recognize keys are friendly to GC beginners.
The workstation operation with the GCsolution is intuitive with
assistant bar, data explorer and batch table wizard.
Application for Biodiesel Quality
Gas chromatography (GC) is a key analytical technique applied to
biodiesel analysis. GC2010 equipped with an integral liquid autosampler
and flame ionization detectors (FIDs), is used to determine the
methyl ester, glycerin and methanol content.
