GC-8A

Basic Gas Chromatograph Model

Simple, Dedicated, Single Detector Gas Chromatographs

GC-8A

The reliable and compact GC-8A is Shimadzu's basic gas chromatograph model for dedicated applications. Economical and simple to use, the GC-8A supports a single detector, manual pressure or flow control, on column injection port(s), and analog output. Isothermal or single temperature ramp program models are available. The GC-8A is only 17.3 inches (43.9 cm) wide, yet its large oven facilitates simple column installation and maintenance. Detectors available:
 


  • FID (Flame Ionization Detector)
  • TCD (Thermal Conductivity Detector)
  • ECD (Electron Capture Detector
  • FPD (Flame Photometric Detector)
