You can now carry out chromatographic separations, which need an initial GC oven start temperature between 0 °C and 30 °C, simply and comfortably with the SIM ICE-Door.
The cooling of the GC oven is achieved with a compressor cooler, so you no longer need liquid N2 or liquid CO2 which also eliminates handling and the various safety aspects which must be taken into account when using cryogenic liquids.
The maintenance-free ICE-Door consists of a cooling element which is inside the door of the GC oven, as well as the SIM multi cooling device with a compressor cooler, temperatures to 0°C can be reached in the oven. This is important for special applications such as gas or volatiles analysis, because chromatographic resolution can be improved using these lower initial temperatures. The SIM ICE-Door is available for Agilent GC's at present, other GC manufacturers in the future. The cooling can be integrated into existing GC systems since only the GC oven door is modified.
