Shimadzu’s new-generation GC-2025 capillary gas chromatograph minimizes environmental
impact by reducing power and carrier gas consumption while retaining the performance
capabilities required for capillary analysis. The GC-2025 incorporates a digital
flow controller that controls both the carrier and detector gases and a newly designed
energy-saving column oven that features small volume and less heating loss, realizing
a dramatic improvement in operation costs.
Heat losses are significantly reduced through high-performance insulation and a
smaller oven size to reduce the heating requirements. In addition, it incorporates
an energy-saving heater to further cut power costs. Power consumption is reduced
by 30% for programmed temperature analysis in comparison to other GC models.
Compact, All-in-One Design
In recent years, there has been an increasing demand for instruments with a smaller
installation footprint to more effectively utilize laboratory space. The GC-2025
meets this requirement while incorporating all the functions required for normal
capillary analysis. Despite the compact instrument design, the small-capacity oven
accommodates the shape of commercially available capillary columns. A split/splitless
injectior (SPL), flame ionization detector (FID), and electronic flow controllers
(AFC/APC) are installed as standard.
Excellent Basic Performance
Incorporating design elements from the high-performance GC-2010 Plus capillary gas
chromatograph, the GC-2025 achieves energy savings while offering the highest performance
demanded for capillary analysis, delivering highly accurate analysis results and
enhanced productivity. The GC-2025 adopts the same well-proven electronic flow controllers
(AFC/APC) for carrier gas and detector gas control that are used in the GC-2010
Plus. They offer highly accurate flow control to achieve excellent reproducibility.
The FID minimum detectable limit of 2 pgC/s offers high sensitivity for trace analysis.
