Flame Ionization Detector (FID) for GC
Flame ionization detection is the most commonly used GC detection method due to it's superior ability to measure hydrocarbons. Using a carrier gas, the sample is ionized via a hydrogen-air flame, then collected using a polarizing voltage. The current produced is measured and used to quantify the amount of sample being burned.
Agilent provides a full range of supplies required to run your FID. This includes igniter glow plugs, collector nuts, cleaning and maintence kits, and our newly designed single-piece FID jets. These innovative jets are aimed to improve ease of installation by eliminating damage to the threads as well as your column heads.
