Sercon Orchid

The high performance gas chromatograph combustion/ pyrolysis interface

The Sercon Orchid is the high performance combustion / pyrolysis interface for hyphenation of GC to IRMS instruments, allowing combustion or pyrolysis of compounds in a mixture. The Orchid preserves chromatography during sample conversion, ensuring that sample peaks remain well resolved when they reach the IRMS. The high sensitivity of the HS2022 ensures excellent data even for small peaks within a sample mixture.
  • Temperature programmable furnace up to 1500˚C
  • Thermally stable gas flow throughout maintains chromatography
  • Versatility of analysis through design – compatible with all commercially available GC and GC-MS systems, including those from Agilent and Shimadzu
  • Full integration with GC autosamplers, inlets and additional detectors
  • Furnace tube designs optimised for 13C, 15N, 2H and 18O measurements
  • Dynamic water removal by low dead-volume hydrophilic membrane
  • Re-oxidation of combustion chemicals easily achieved using built in oxygen regeneration line, avoiding the need for extra valves and “back flushing”
