Important Safeguards
The following items are frequently not recognized or are overlooked by new users while learning to operate a Gas Chromatograph. They are brought to your attention to safeguard against damage to your equipment.
Carrier gas must be flowing through the column before heating the column oven.Carefully evaluate columns that have been heated with no carrier gas flowing throughand discard, if damaged. Ensure the injector contains a septum and there is a positiveflow of carrier gas before heating the column.
Become familiar with the location and identity of injector and detector options prior tomaking settings at the GC keyboard and pneumatics panel. For example, determine thephysical location of the injector you want to use (front, middle, or rear) and identify thespecific pneumatic controls associated with it (manual pneumatics or Electronic FlowControl). Similarly, determine the physical location of the detector you want to use andidentify the specific pneumatic controls for this detector.
Heating an ECD to elevated temperatures without carrier or make-up gas flowing throughit can damage the ECD cell. This can happen inadvertently especially when the ECD isnot in use. For this reason, it is recommended that a low flow of carrier or make-up gasbe maintained through an ECD at all times.
If your system has a TCD, gas must be flowing through both channels to protect thefilaments. Turn power to filaments off when not in use.
Important Tips Regarding 3800 Operation
After editing the active method, it must be re-activated before running the next analysis.Always remember to activate a method after you have made edits, if you intend to runthat method next.
Note that the GC control keys allow access to both the active method status (top of thedisplay) and the current method available to edit (middle of the display). If you want toedit the active method then you must make it the current edit method. Both the currentactive method and edit method are listed on the top line of the 3800 display.
If a potentially hazardous fault is detected, such as a thermal runaway, the 3800 shutsdown the affected component and reports the fault. After correcting the fault, normaloperation is restored by powering the 3800 OFF then ON.
